How Do I Resolve the "LACK" Measurement Reading in DAQLOGGER When Connected to the WT230 Digital Power Meter via GateWT?

When making a WT230 Digital Power Meter RS232C connection using GateWT, please verify the following RS232C communication settings on the instrument:
  • Mode = 488.2
  • Hand = 0
  • For = 0
  • Baud Rate = 9600
  • Terminator Cr+Lf

Even though you can run GateWT and retrieve the tags from the WT230, the readings in DAQLOGGER will display "LACK" if the terminator is not set to Cr+Lf.
