Hi, I've been using a USB TC-08 to track 6channels of thermal data. I just need a 20 second total observation interval, but I'd like 10Hz sampling rate or better per channel. I've just downloaded the latest data logger version, and I can specify what I want in the setup, but the resulting data file doesn't actually update at 10Hz/ch. Instead, it will repeat one value several times until an updated value is available. So I get 200 data points per channel using 10Hz, but the actual update rate is closer to 1 or 2 Hz.
The software will not allow me to select any mode other than real-time-continuous, a name that seems at odds with data rate I'm observing.
Changing the channel count does increase the update rate. So enabling 6 channels allows updates at about
1.25Hz and enabling only 2 channels updates at about 3 Hz.
Once upon a time in the beginning of using this software, I thought I was acquiring data much faster. But I've either lost the recipe, or I'm delusional about my youth. Is the slow update rate a limitation of the acquisition system or the operator? Can someone lend some insight?
thanks very much
