I have just got some PL1000 and multiple sensors including switches. I need to log when the switches have opened/shut, but this may occur very infrequently eg 10 times a day, and I cannot afford to miss any of these events. I have read about triggering using 1 channel, but I actually want to log continuously the temperature channel, but only record actual events for the switches (I have only 2 switches to monitor). can I set up a single PL1000 to do this or will I have to use a logger per switch to ensure I record the received data ONLY from the switching events.
Would it be better if I wrote my own software that reads the logger very frequently but discards the switch data if nothing is happening?
