You will need to have at least one free serial COM port available on the logger for every 5 ShapeArrays (SAAs) that you want to read with an SAA232-5 and for every single ShapeArray that you want to read with an SAA232. The easiest way to add code for reading ShapeArrays is to use the SAACR_FileGenerator utility in SAASuite to generate a CR logger program that just reads SAA data. Then merge this program together with your existing CR logger program for reading other sensors (see Integrating Other Sensors Into the Main CS Logger Program (Advanced)).

If you require assistance doing this, please contact Measurand and attach the two programs that you would like to merge with a brief description of what your logger application is supposed to do.
