Picolog 1216 1 ms sample rate setting

Post by t.kootstra » Wed May 20, 2020 7:45 am


I'm having difficulty to set the 1216 at the 1 ms sampling rate.
When only using channel 1 which is set at 1 ms sample interval, logging for a while the graph doesn't show correct data and the output file is set at samples of 1 sec.
And i can't find how to change this, when i attempt to change this it displays "the output sample rate is limited by the slowest sampled channel".
So i'm confused here, is channel one a "slow" channel ? But why can i set it at 1 msec ?
At what sampling rate does the graph work ? It seems as if it samples faster than 1 per second but slower than 1 millisecond due to not displaying everything correctly.
And why is the output data rate set at 1 per second, the whole idea was to create a logfile which can be exported so it can be handled in a different program.

I hope someone can help me out ?

I think you may have an older version of software that was limited to 1 second sample rate.
You can download the current version here- Current Picolog 6 stable version for Windows
Mac and linux versions can be found here https://www.picotech.com/downloads
