Whilst runing the TC-08 USB data logger on ouyr Pc, is there a way that the data logger can continue to log data in the event of a power failure?

Hi Bill not unless you can keep the computer running with a UPS.

Whilst running the TC-08 USB data logger on our PC, we had a power failure; does the Picolog software save data continuously or is everything lost after a power failure??

regards,
Sebastiaan

Hi Sebastiaan,

If you are using one file to record your data, this may corrupt your data, there is not guarantee that it can be recovered. What I would do is try to have shorter runs of data and get PicoLog to repeat immediately creating another file with a number at the end of it.
This way if you do loose data it would only be the last file you had.

If your data is corrupted send an email to support@picotech.com, with the bad file and a good file.

Hope this helps.

Kind regards
