I put together a short tutorial on how to connect your Chrony to your PC.
I started out searching the www for how to do it, and got a breakthrough on the Yellow:
http://www.network54.com/Forum/79537/th ... le+for+USB
I am using a demo (free) vesion of ChronoConnect: http://www.chronoconnect.com/
Here is a picture of the RS232-USB connector. I bought my converter off e-bay http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie ... 6689987015
It took 2 weeks to arrive in my mailbox, and 5 minutes to hook it up.
There are 4 TTL pins on the edge, GND goes to the back of the headphone jack, TX to the middle, and RX to the tip.
Image

The USB port powers up the Chrony, although it flashes LB the connection works fine.
Image
Image

Then you fire up ChnonoConnect (in demo mode, unless you buy a licence):
Image

You have to click on the top left line Chronohraph:, select your make (Chrony in my case), then the COM port. Only one port should be available normally. In Demo mode the software doesn’t remember any settings so you have to go through this each time you start up the program.
Image

Then you click on Gun: Select rifle or pistol, and then select the make model calibre and enter the pellet info or select from the list.
Image

Now you are ready to dump data from the Chrony. I have only dumped data from memory so far, haven’t tried it in on-line mode. To dump the data to the PC, click on Chrony Status box (upper right)
Image

And a new window opens with some gibberish, there is a pull down box at the bottom, so you can select which string you want to dump to the PC… in my example it’s string 5… and there are 6 strings stored. Then click the Dump String # button and the spreadsheet will fill up.
You can then click the Save Capture button on the upper right and a PC save screen opens up with the default to save to the root directory of the program, and with a filename taken from the gun and pellet description.
Image

Repeat as required.

The ChronoConnect website also allows you to graph your shot string, if you don’t know how, or can't bother open the .CSV file in Excel to plot it manually. http://www.chronoconnect.com/?page=graphme

You just Browse to your CSV file and then Upload it and viola… your string is plotted.
Image

Total cost, $2.22 and a scrounged old headphone cable.
Enjoy. :drinkers:

Wow!! That's an excellent tip!! I'll be looking into it for sure. Quick and easy record keeping ( not my strong suit at all :roll: ) and the ability to graph results.

Thanks for posting this!!

From the looks of it, you can buy the software and the cable for 32 pounds. When the cable arrives, your set and ready. Mine is on the way!! $54 CAD for the complete version of the software, 3 unlock codes (so you can have it on up to 3 computers) and the cable to connect your Chrony.
