When using multiple instruments on one PC with PicoLog 6, each instrument has it's own clock which can drift tiny amounts measured in ppm (parts per million), but over days or weeks, these clocks can drift apart by a few seconds. Also add into the mix that PC clocks also drift over time and a corrected by the OS a few times a day.
PicoLog 6 now checks for drift at regular intervals, and makes small corrections.
Please note, this feature is currently ONLY available for the TC-08 thermocouple data logger. Other instruments will be implimented in due course.
When exporting PicoLog 6 data to CSV (Comma Separated Values) file, users experienced long waits especially on long multichannel captures. We're pleased to announce that CSV export speed has nearly halved!
Don't forget we now support HDF5 binary file export which exports hundreds of times faster than the equivalent CSV.
Since version PicoLog 6.1.11, math channel sample rate was decoupled from the screen update, and is now calculated at the speed of the fastest channel being used in the math formula.
More recently, we received customer feedback that suggested the math channel setup dialogue in PicoLog should inform the user of the output sampling rate of that math channel.
|Windows PC||Windows 8.x, 10 (32 and 64-bit)|
|Mac computer||From macOS 10.12 (Sierra) or newer|
|Linux PC||Tested on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS or newer (64-bit), and OpenSUSE 15.x or newer (64-bit)|
Compatible with Raspbian Buster or newer using Raspberry Pi model 4B.
Note: Also works with model 3B and 3B+ although GUI response time is slower, and we recommend a sampling rate no faster than 1 S/s.
Does not work with Raspbian Stretch or Jessie
