Setting a timer to sample data

Post by rkrupnik » Tue May 10, 2005 5:13 pm

Hello,

I would like to start recording data at a time of the day when I am not in my office. Is there a "timer function" in the PicoLog software that allows you to begin recording data at a specified time.

Thanks
Ross

Hi Ross

Thank you for your post.

The only way I know to do this would be to create a shortcut to Picolog which starts the program up recording (you can see how to do this in the help file). Then you need to use something like Windows Scheduler to open it at a desired time. Picolog cannot be set to start recording at a certain time, so this is the best way to achieve this.

Hope this helps

Best Regards
