No it is not. the output is a simple text file (called baro.txt) which is a list of three numbers, separated by a spaces, and each line ended with a CR. The first number is the time, the second number multiplied by a constant is the pressure, and the third number is the temperature.

You can access this data (ie download to your computer) with the program that is provided, or with even more flexibility using MS Windows program called HyperTerminal. Instructions are in the manual.

The WX Jack connects to your computer with a standard phone modem cable to your modem input, or to a serial port using an adaptor, which is provided.
