VantagePoint is YieldPoint’s proprietary instrument analysis tool, accessible through the GUI frontend with graphs or through the JSON API.
YieldPoint’s BluPoint app provides engineers, technicians, consultants and contractors with an Android interface to BluPoint instruments, BluLoggers, BluGateways as well as cloud based services. The App consists of 5 activities:
The BluPoint app is available on the Google Play store.

Campbell Scientific CR6 CRBasic program for dMUX
YieldPoint d4Mux and d8Mux are low cost multiplexing modules that enable a single port of a digital datalogger to interface with 4 or 8 YP instruments over a 4-wire (Power, GND, Tx, Rx) Rs232 (+/-5V) interface. The dMUX can be controlled over a Serial Port on the datalogger and example programs are provided for a Campbell Scientific CR6 datalogger. This enables up to 80 (d 4 MUX) or 160 (d 8 MUX) channels of information to be interfaced with a single data digital port. A sample CRBasic program for a Campbell CR6 logger is available here. No configuration or port mapping is required since each YP instrument has its own unique ID.
d-LOG is the application required to configure and download data from d1Loggers and d4Loggers. It aalows the user to download data either over a Virtual Com Port (VCP) or a TCP socket. Data is directled to a filename corresponding with the Instrument ID. It is used to set up the data-logging period (1/min to 1/day) and to sync the clock.
SensorViewer is an application that runs on a lap top or tablet (d-Tab). It allows the device to function as a readout unit. The user can store manual reading which avoids human error during data collection.
Minescope is a data visualization application that allows users to import data from YieldPoint instruments and display the data is Graphical form. The software can present multi-channel datasets in both temporal and spatial form. The program automatically accounts for head-at-toe (HAT) and head-at-collar (HAC) applications. Plots can be exported to Excel or Word reports can be generated with a single click.
The d-Mesh PC software provides a GUI to configure, manage and trouble shoot a YieldPoint wireless mesh solution. d-Mesh can be used to discover wireless nodes, assess signal strength, and once operational extract data from d-Loggers populating the mesh.
