Picolog 6 fixed sampling period

Post by mdashper »

I have been using Picolog 5 with a TC-08, and have configured it to record in 24 hour blocks. In other words, it is continuously sampling but saves a .PLW file every 24 hours and displays a new graph.
In Picolog 6, however, all I can find in 'Local Capture' is, 'Continuous', Stop after fixed time' and 'Overwrite after fixed time'. If I choose 'Overwrite after fixed time', what is overwritten? Is the data still saved to disk as a 24 hour file.

With PicoLog 6 using 'Overwrite after fixed time' setting the oldest data will overwritten first. So the recording will always have the last 24 hour recorded.
PicoLog 6, works differently to PicoLog 5 as it stores it data in a internal database and does write the data to file like PicoLog 5. But in PicoLog 6 you manually save recording to a .picolog. But there is no way automatically set it save to file.
