PicoLog for Windows works in two modes: player mode for displaying previously
recorded data, and recorder mode for recording new data. You can have more
than one copy of PicoLog for Windows running at once, so you can use the
player to analyse old data whilst recording new data.
PicoLog can collect data from multiple converters at the same time. This not only
allows a mix of voltage input units to be used on the same PC, but also allows
other PC-based instruments such as the TC-08 thermocouple data logger and the
PicoScope 3205 PC oscilloscope to be used at the same time.
Data can easily be transferred (either as graphs or raw data) to other Windows
applications by using the clipboard (copy and paste). Graphs can also be saved to
disk (as Windows Metafiles) and data from the spreadsheet can be saved in text
format. Current readings can be transferred using Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE).
PicoLog also supports IP networking so it is possible to transfer measurements
from a remote site via an existing LAN, company network, or even over the
PicoLog displays data in a number of views, which can be activated as and when
required, both during and after data collection.
Enables you to start and stop recording and specify recording files. It shows
the current readings and alarm conditions for each channel. All settings such as
scaling, channels and sampling are controlled from the recorder view.
XY GRAPH VIEW
Displays one parameter against another. Useful for plotting voltage against
current, for example.
Displays text data in a format that can be easily - copied and pasted - into other
applications. Data can also be saved to disk in standard text format.
Graphs can be displayed both during and after data collection. Each channel can
be displayed in its own graph, or multiple channels can be displayed in the same
graph. Axes can be set up manually, automatically or in chart recorder mode.
Multipliers allow you to magnify areas of interest. Graphs can be copied into the
clipboard and then pasted into reports.
Notes view allows you to attach notes to data.
Displays previously recorded data. It enables you to scroll quickly through stored
files to compare results on successive runs. The player can be used to examine
old data whilst new data is still being recorded.
Can be used to convert raw data into standard engineering units. A wide range
of equation and table lookup scaling options are provided.
Can be calculated. For example, to calculate power output from a boiler, you may
need to multiply a flow reading from one channel by the temperature difference
between two further channels.
Can be set for each channel to alert the user should a parameter go out of a
PicoLog data acquisition software supports IP networking. This enables remote
data collection from Pico Technologys full range of data acquisition products.
