Hello fellow PicoLoggers,
- PicoLogger 1012
- PicoLog software version 5.22.7
- Windows 7 64-bit on a laptop with 2GB RAM and an AMD E-350 (low-end)
I noticed an old post http://www.picotech.com/support/post27017.html?hilit=mixed%20channels#p27017 relating to my problem, but it wasn't exactly the same issue as I am not writing any code to capture data. I'm using PicoLog version 5.22.7 and my channels get mixed up sometimes. I have approximately 10,000 recordings, but I looked at a particular set of them that I was concerned with. This set of 20 recordings contains only 5 recordings (.plw files) that have the data mapped to the proper channel. All the other recordings have channels mixed up, but they are sometimes mixed up in the same way and other times not. In total, the data is organized in 8 different ways among these 20 recordings...and only 1/4 of the time will it be the correct way. I have written in a messy workaround in my post-processing code, but I would rather not have to deal with this if/when we recommission our PicoLogger 1012 for another application this Fall.
I tried updating the software to version 5.23.0, but it always crashed after recording one or two .plw files. I noticed another post (http://www.picotech.com/support/topic13815.html) that may be related, but I have yet to explore this option. I would first like some input from the community and perhaps PicoTech. I have examples of mixed up data and okay data. These examples use the same configuration and were recorded back to back without any human intervention.
Has anyone experienced this problem? And can someone from PicoTech let me know if this will possibly be resolved by updating the software? I am a little hesitant to miss data again while my system is offline due to repeated crashing.
