If the Windows PC can be accessed by remote desktop,
 either over the local network or via VPN,
any mobile phone with Microsoft Remote Desktop can be used to view the information
Instructions for use:

Make a shortcut to the program and add the IP address of your Envoy as a parameter

(if you don't know it use Fing from the Play Store to find it
or a windows network scanner )

When you run it it will give you the option to tick "write to file" and enter the filename
If you change the the delay time, click in another field so that the new delay is registered
You can stop and start the process with the buttons

Note: it's best to put the output file on an SSD drive as its written frequently

If the primary CTs measure Solar Production and the secondary CTs measure Consumption
rename the program to CTMetersB.exe and make the shortcut to that.

New:
Right click the Title bar to:
