My name is Gianni. I have been working with PicoLog 1012 since 2 years for data logging and I found this unit plus PicoLog software a most satisfactory investment, providing professional, reliable and stable performance in the Windows XP environment.
I have been using the 1012 in a project where temperature data was collected from a special electrolyte cell whose temperature was closely monitored and regulated by an ON-OFF analogue hardware servo loop. I have now realised that the temperature regulation function can also be implemented with the alarm functions of the 1012 and of the PicoLog software.
Unfortunately I also have to accurately measure the ON-OFF time durations of the servo loop. With the hardware servo loop the time measure funcion was carried out by a software cronometer also running in Windows XP, where start/stop and read commands were brougt in through the serial interface.
I now need to interconnect the PicoLog generated alarm to the chronometer by software, but I do not see any provisions in the PicoLog software for doing this.....am I missing something?
