I need to pull delimited data from EuroTherm Chessell Chart Recorder with the Ethernet Option every minute per day.

Any ideas on the best way to record 24-7 from 10 inputs. Using the 4103 Eurotherm Chessell Chart Recorder with 100 mm Graphics Unit - Ethernet Option - which works - but we just want the data to store in text file or even into columns in Excel.

Since it's talking Modbus TCP, you'd probably be well off to use an OPC server. OPC can poll the data at a specified refresh rate and insert it into sequential cells of an Excel sheet. I've got a system over ethernet logging 24 values 5 times a second. So once per minute should be absolutely no problem.
