PicoLog, our data logging software, can collect data from a number of converters at once, but it always records data at the same rate from each converter, and starts sampling from each converter at the same time. In more complex applications, you can get around these limitations by running several copies (or ‘instances’) of PicoLog at the same time. You do this by creating a separate settings file for each instance, then loading each settings file into its own copy of PicoLog.
Here is an outline of the procedure.
Once you have a settings file for each converter or set of converters, you will need to start PicoLog Recorder from the command line, as follows.
You should now have a separate instance of PicoLog for each settings file. The maximum speed of data acquisition will depend on the number of converters in use and the number of instances of the program.
