No Outputs on Alarm

Post by Kay » Fri Jan 03, 2014 1:00 pm


we use a Picolog 1216 and set the Alarm in the Settings for Output 1 and Output 2. In the Recorder Overview i see the inputs. When the Alarm Level is reached the Green LED changes to Red, but the Output will not be set. I measured the 2,5V Voltage, so my measuring device is ok. Is there any other option i must set to get the Outputs working ?

Kind Regards

Hi Kay,
I have checked out a 1216 with all four digital outputs and they all appear to work using the normal settings as shown in "Help". Are you in "Real Time Continuous" recording mode? Digital outputs can only be used in that mode.
If you still have problems, please send us a settings (.pls) or data (.plw) file to:-
and we will try to help further.
