Topic: parallel serial monitoring using two arduino boards (Read 549 times) previous topic - next topic

Hi,

I recently started using arduino boards for a project were I need to get data from two arduino boards. I have the same sketch for the two Arduinos, I am trying to measure dust density before and after a filter.
I tried to get data from serial monitor by opening the same sketch twice, by renaming one of them, but I can only open one serial monitor window, so I can only get data from one of the boards.
Is there someway I can get parallel Serial Monitor windows that will display the data from each arduino separately?

thank you

No but you can run an other serial terminal program like putty to get the other data.

thank you,

so if I understand correctly I need to get a serial port adapter and connect the second arduino to my laptop through the serial port?

No just plug both into the USB sockets of the computer. Configure your terminal emulator for one and select the other from the arduino IDE.
