[teqc] extracting environmental records from NetRS BINEX

Matt,
Assuming the "System Status Record" is enabled (i.e. set to a time interval and not "Off") when you configured the binex session, the command

teqc +rx_state $FILE.bnx 


will dump the voltages and temperatures to stdout in the following format:

2010 Mar 25 05:21:00.008  T=  39 C Vpe= 17810 mV Vse=   198 mV

where Vpe is from the dongle and Vse is from the twist-lock inputs.

You can of course direct the output to a file (teqc +rx_state $FILE.bnx > $STATUSFILE), etc.




A handy way to monitor the status of a capable receiver in real time is to set up a binex TCP stream with the system status record enabled and catch it with "netcat", or "nc", piped into teqc.  In the following example I have a binex stream on port 9999.  I have verified this with both Trimble NetRS/NetR8 and Leica 1200 series receivers, and it should work for Topcons as well.

% nc 69.44.87.176 9999 | teqc -binex +rx_state
! Notice ! GPS week will be initially set to 1576 for any data stream needing it
		(or use -week option to override)
2010 Mar 25 05:21:00.008  T=  39 C Vpe= 17810 mV Vse=   198 mV
2010 Mar 25 05:22:00.008  T=  39 C Vpe= 17802 mV Vse=   198 mV
2010 Mar 25 05:23:00.008  T=  39 C Vpe= 17810 mV Vse=   190mV
2010 Mar 25 05:24:00.006  T=  39 C Vpe= 17825 mV Vse=   198 mV
2010 Mar 25 05:25:00.008  T=  39 C Vpe= 17817 mV Vse=   190 mV

Hope this helps,
Freddy B.
