I'm trying to record thermocouple data through TC08 and would like some advice on picolog.
I am trying to record oven data, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. I have done the following, and have a system that nearly does what I want.
Set a scheduled task to run at midnight, launching the recorder and passing the pls file. ("c:\pico\plw32.exe" -r settings.pls" (??from memory).
Set the number of samples / sample rate to finish just before midnight.
I run a batch file just after midnight to move the new files to a directory (2009) and a server location.
This nearly does what I want, however I have the following problems.
If I need to reboot mid-day, I am snookered. I can start the recording manually/on startup, but the samples will run mid-day to mid-day (unless I start calculating and messing with the number of samples).
I find the filenames hard to manage. The ideal would be if I could name the file in a date format (eg 09-12-21.plw), although this is more of a nicity as I tend to go off date modified.
Is anyone doing anything similar, and are there any better ways of doing this?
