Hi yes you can have multiple units plugged into one PC logging at the same time using one instance of the software.

I have 6 units of ADC20 now plugged at one PC,
but it is not possible at the moment to open more as 4 units.
Same in PicpLog-Software as in my selfmade VB6 program

Hi I assume you are using an old version of the software. As we recently unlocked the number of devices you can connect to your PC. You can have up to 20 USB device.

Please download the latest software from our website:

Hi,
now i have installed newest version (PicoFull_r5_17_1).
But, there is still the same problem as before:
PicoLog opens only 4 units of ADC20!!!!!!!
(6 Units are plugged and recognized by the Device Manager)

Aha! good point, my mistake. Whilst most of our USB devices do allow more than 4 units the ADC20/24 is limited to 4 units. We are in the process of reviewing this.

I shall keep you informed of any progress.

Ok, it is very very important for us!!!!
Now we have about 40 units (different types) from your company in use.
So i think, we are a good customer of you!

I look forward to your driver modification.

Hi I am pleased to say that I have attached a dll that unlocks the number of devices (20 devices in PicoLog).

I have to say though this is a pre release version, we would need to do more testing but let us know if you encounter any difficulties. Having said that I just tested it on 10 units on a short run, with no problems.

You would first need to unplug all your devices, close the software.
You will need to unzip the attached file, copy and paste it in the PicoFull folder, by default in c:\Program Files\Pico Technology\Pico Full and replace the old one. Then plug your units back in and load up PicoLog.

Let me know if you have any problems.

Kind regards

Hi to All,

I am new in programming, totally new and I just started the "Hello World" of Excel VBA. If someone who is so generous to share their code for my reference to build my own excel vba. We just want to get the temperature using the LM35 connected to ADC20.

So much appreciated your help.

Thank you and Regards,
