Create a data log from rotary encoder

Hi, I wired up a little circuit to display data(number of rotations) using an Arduino Nano, a small rotary encoder and a segment display. I uploaded the code and it works fine. How could I capture that data and write it to a log file? A text file would be all I need. I've attached a picture of my working proto type.
Thanks, Jim G.

With what you have, the only chance is to use the Arduino serial/USB connection to your PC. Send the data to the PC and record it there.


Instead of the serial monitor, I use a terminal program on the PC to capture Arduino data as a log file. Putty, Teraterm, etc.

Hey Thanks, I used Putty and it worked great. Thanks
