How to download data from the Fluke-1735 to your PC

How to download data from the Fluke-1735 to PC.

There are two different versions of the Fluke-1735’s one with an RS232 port and one with a mini USB.

 1.First the RS232 type.

With this version if you don't have a 9 pin serial port on your computer you will need a USB to Serial converter. In the example below we will be using the Aten USB to Serial converter model UC-232A

The serial cable that came with the Fluke-1735 part number 2625531, is an RS232 cable that connects to the Aten cable and then plug the USB end of the Aten adapter into the computer. The Aten comes with a disk that has a driver on it you will need to install the driver when the cable is plugged into the computer.

If the firmware level inside the Fluke-1735 is at level 1.09 or older you will install Power Log software version 4.0.2 if the firmware is 1.10 you will install Power Log Classic version 4.6. Here is the location for both versions of the software (

Once Powerlog is installed, you will want to open it with the Fluke-1735 turned on and plugged into the computer. The Fluke-1735 can not be in the middle of recording or it will not communicate to the computer. So be sure to stop the recording before trying to upload data.
Then click the drop down arrow to select a com port. Below is an example of the drop down choice in Power Log program. If you are using a 9 pin serial port version without the USB adapter it will be Com 1. 

If you are using the USB adapter the driver for that item will assign it to a Com port number greater the number 1. Go to the device manager to verify what the driver assignment given, look in the Ports directory. After selecting the com you will want to click on the icon to the right of the drop down “download recorded data”.

You should then see the download window and your data should appear. Be sure to save the data by selecting file and save as.

Screen could have different tabs depending on what function you recorded.

2. Second is the USB version
The only difference with this version is when you select the drop down to select a com port, instead of a com there will be a Fluke-1735 listed in your drop down.

To download the data select the download icon and data should download. 

Remember once the data is downloaded be sure the select File and Save As to save the data to your computer.
