'Live' data logging to a file

Postby steve_vmwx » Thu Feb 12, 2009 10:35 pm

G'day Pico Tech

Is there a why to configure Pico Log to write data 'live' directly to a file. I want to read the file from another system (not Windows so no DDE option) and plot the data *during* data collection.

Cheers
Steve

Hi Steve, I am not quite following your query, what operating system do you mean?

In any case, please have a look at the Enviromon user manual

http://www.picotech.com/document/pdf/emw-en.pdf

and look at the drivers section.

Kind regards

Thanks for the prompt reply Ziko :)

The data file will be stored on a network share. Another OS will read the data from there.

TC08->PicoSW->Data file->Network drive->OtherOS->Plot etc

The data is coming from a TC08. Will EnviroMon support the TC08? I understand that EnviroMon can stream live to the file via the command line. This would be great.

Cheers

Hi Steve,

Not it was a momentary lapse of sanity on my behalf! Enviromon is for another product!

Firstly PicoLog only runs on a Windows based Operating system.
However if you look at the user manual of PicoLog you can see how to read the .plw file in section 7.2

Hope this helps

Thanks Ziko, that might be the easiest way :)
