Auto matic logging with sequential file names.

Post by Gib » Mon Jun 13, 2005 12:30 pm

Using an ADC16 with your std software logging MC activity 24/7.
Taking 4Ch's at a sample rate of 1/ 30 seconds with a date and time attached.
Whats the best way of auto saving this info?
Idealy would like one file per day with the date as the file name.
This data will be held on a rolling 15 day bank.
This info is viewed by your soft ware and transfered into excell for board level analysis ( looking at the pretty picture and pretending that they know what it means)

Thank you for your post.

To get one file per day you need to figure out how many samples you are collecting in one day and then set that as the sample limit of the file. Set it to "Repeat Immediately" and then it will start a fresh file for each day.

You can set the date as the filename for the original file, however by default the software will then append each new one with an incrementing number - it cannot change the date on the file. You could however manually change the file names later if you so wished.

Hope this helps

Best Regards
