TC-08 and ADC-100 parallel use

Postby pajk » Thu Feb 05, 2004 1:56 pm


I use two channels of ADC-100 for voltage signal registration in 'fast-mode'. Now I need to register temperature in the same time as voltage.
Before I decide to buy TC-08 I would like to know:
1. Can I use ADC-100 and TC-08 parallely without any difficulties?
2. Can I use the same PicoLog recorder soft and set up to register signals from ADC-100 and TC-08 in the same time (and the same sampling rate)?

Best regards

Thank you for yor questions.

It is possible to use both units at the same time, but in your initial statement you said that you are using fast block mode to ample with the ADC-100. In this mode you are only able to use one converter at a time. Secondly, the TC-08 cannot be used in this mode as its sample rate (conversion time for each channel) is approx 200ms plus 200 ms for CJC.

For the above reasons it is not possible to what you have requested, when using Picolog in Fast Block mode.

It is however, possible when using 'Real Time Continuous', but the fastest time interval here is 1ms, and as stated above you will not get new readings for TC-08 channels each time.

Best regards,
