The TC-08 thermocouple data logger is designed to measure a wide range of temperatures using any thermocouple that has a miniature thermocouple connector.
All popular types of thermocouple are supported, allowing an effective temperature range of –270 to +1820 °C (the actual temperature range depends on the thermocouple being used).
Temperature data acquisition with the TC-08 is very easy: simply plug the TC-08 into a USB port on your computer (no external power required), connect your thermocouples, and you are ready to measure temperatures. Easy-to-use PicoLog data acquisition software is supplied with the TC-08, allowing you to start measuring and recording temperatures with the minimum effort. The intuitive PicoLog user interface makes it easy to set how frequently you want to take a measurement, and the number of measurements you want to take.
Great news for owners of PicoScope 2000A and PicoScope 2000B oscilloscopes: we've now added basic support for these devices in PicoLog 6. This means you can now take long-term captures with your oscilloscope, and make use of PicoLog's suite of advanced logging features such as alarms, annotations, math channels, custom scaling, table view and comprehensive suite of export and report options.
PicoLog 6 offers (virtually) unlimited logging, safe and reliable data storage and multiple device support, all of which means we've limited the sample rate to 1 kS/s per channel to guarantee those features. If faster sampling is required, we recommend using the PicoSDK to write your own custom application.
As with our dataloggers, it's possible to use up to 20 devices at the same time.
The following PicoScopes are supported: PicoScope 2204A, 2204A-D2, 2205A, 2205A-D2, 2205A MSO, 2405A, and all 2000B oscilloscopes. See PicoScope 2000 page for all models.
Hardware features not supported in PicoLog 6: MSO logic channels, AWG output, triggering.
In this release, we've also added support for the 8-channel, 12-bit resolution PicoScope 4824 oscilloscope. As with the PicoScope 2000 Series, you can add up to 20 devices, giving a total of 180 channels at once!
Again, sample rate is 1 kS/s per channel and the AWG has not been implemented as an output.
Have a large number of devices to configure? Now you can copy the configuration of one logger to many, as long as they're the same type of device. Copy configuration is only available before capture is started.
Need to replace or swap out a device from your configuration, or load and use a configuration from a colleague's setup using your device? Now you can move configuration from another device without pausing capture, and preserve device setup, alarm history, and math channel setup for that logger.
When deleting files in the PicoLog 6 file browser, they now go to the recycle/trash for whichever OS you're using.
In the file browser menu, your
.picolog capture and configuration files were displayed as thumbnails previewing the waveform. In this release we've added the option to switch to list view, which allows you to sort by filename, date, size and filter tags.
When using a PicoScope oscilloscope (see above) with PicoLog 6 software, we've made it simple to configure the channel for use with one of our oscilloscope accessories such as a passive probe or current clamp. The supported accessories are shown as tiled thumbnails with part number and a range selection (if multiple ranges are available). The scaling factor and units will now show correctly.
Previously, the option dialog to edit graph annotations was only available in the annotation history in the right pane of the PicoLog 6 app. We have added the feature to double click on the annotation within the graph to edit its properties or add more text.
In accordance with the requirements of the EN 61010 product safety standard (IEC 1010), when input value applied to a channel is larger than the selected range, an "Overrange" warning is displayed on screen and the graph stops plotting.
