Create a binary configuration file for the VoltCraft Energy Logger 3500 or 4000

Usage:    EnergyLoggerConfig /dt:daytimetariff /nt:nighttimetariff [ options ]

Where:    daytimetariff      is the day time tariff for 1 kWh
          nighttimetariff    is the night time tariff for 1 kWh

Options:  /ID:deviceID       set device ID (0..9; default: 1)
          /12H               use 12 hour clock (default: 24 hour clock)
          /MDY               use date format M/D/Y (default: D-M-Y)
          /F:minutes         set time to specified number of minutes in future
                             to allow sufficient time to load the SD card into
                             the device (0..60; default: 1 minute)
          /C:currency        set currency: G = GB Pound, S = Swiss Frank,
                             U = US Dollar, E = Euro (default: Euro)

The settings will be written to a binary file named "setupel3.bin", located in
the current directory. It should be written to SD card and loaded into the
device in the specified number of minutes (/F switch) for optimal accuracy of
cost calculations. Once loaded, the device will erase the file from the SD card.
Detailed information on the setupel3.bin file format can be found at
