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.
Following feedback from PicoLog 6 users, we've added new controls to toggle both X and Y axis autoscaling. The checkbox can be found in the autoscale menu at the bottom of the screen in Graph View.
Select "Show all Data" to view all data from the start of the capture to the most recent sample. This is the same as performing an X axis autoscale.
Select "Follow new data" to always see the latest data but keep a constant time window across the screen like a strip chart. This mode is the same as disabling X axis autoscale.
"Auto scale Y axes" can be toggled on or off with either of the 2 modes above. Tick "Auto scale Y axes" to turn on Y axis autoscale on all active axes. Untick "Auto scale Y axes" to disable Y axis autoscale. This can be useful if data has high or low extremes but you need to focus on detail on recent readings.
Since adding PicoScope oscilloscope support to PicoLog 6, we needed a way for PicoLog 6 to not automatically enumerate oscilloscopes which might otherwise be intended for use with PicoScope 6 software or a custom application using PicoSDK.
When a PicoScope is detected, the scope is greyed out on the screen and you have to press the "Connect" button. Once connection is established in PicoLog 6, the device can no longer be detected by PicoScope software or PicoSDK app.
Following the addition of PicoScope 2000A/B series oscillscopes to PicoLog 6, we've also added the following PicoScopes from the 3000 Series:
Older 3204/5/6 non-A models do not work in PicoLog 6.
Various advanced oscilloscope features are disabled; including triggering, MSO logic inputs, capture memory. Sampling speeds are limited to 1 kS/s per channel.
As above, we've also added the PicoScope 5000 Series to this release.
PicoLog 6 now supports the various powering options of the PicoScope 5000A/B and D Series. If a 4-channel device is connected and powered with only USB, channels C and D are disabled. This is highlighted in three places: a flashing lightning bolt icon will appear on the image of the unit, also on the BNC connector for channels C and D, and in the "Channels and Axes" pane if channel C or D were previously configured.
Various advanced oscilloscope features are disabled including triggering, MSO logic inputs, capture memory. Sampling speeds are limited to 1 kS/s per channel.
You can access and modify the Table View from saved .picolog configuration files.
In previous versions of PicoLog 6, table view and CSV exporting were limited to 100 ms minimum sampling interval. We've now improved this to 1 ms allowing you to export your captured data in 1 ms resolution. This also means you can export the data with the same sampling rate used when capturing it.
In PicoLog 6, there are different ways to zoom into your data depending on whether you need to zoom just the X or Y axis, both axes together, or zoom into a selection. In this release we've made it easier to find the Y axis zoom by changing the pointer to a vertical zoom pointer when hovering over the axis labels, then using the mouse wheel to zoom in our out.
...that holding the Shift key with the pointer anywhere on the screen and using the mouse wheel also zooms the Y axis?
