I am evaluating the tc-08 for an application reading thermocouples in an oven and a smoke stack. I have downloaded the software and I am playing around with it. I used 2 demo readings "thermocouple in oven" and "thermocouple in stack", assigned them +/- 100mv with scaling *25 to read +/- 2500°F. That works just fine, I see the numbers going up and down for the demo. Now, I want to add a calculated parameter of the difference between the two. I set A to oven, B to stack, equation to A-B, then when I click "OK" or "options" the program crashes & I have to go back in and add the parameters again (for some reason it's not saved in the PLW file? even though I save it right before I go into the calculated variables because I know it will crash).
This makes me wonder if my data would be saved should the computer crash or power outage. The application requires sampling every minute for months at a time. my toying around with the program seems to indicate that this could run continuously for 694 days. is that true? if so, would my data be saved should I lose power or laptop crash?
