Data Logging Options

  1. Log only when new data is available from your instrument: when a weight changes on a balance for instance. Even if two items weigh the same, Windmill knows that a change has occurred, so no readings are missed.
  2. Log to a new data file at regular intervals, every hour or every week for example. This is useful in continuous, long-term logging.
  3. Log data only when channels are in an alarm state, for example when a temperature reading rises above a set point for five minutes. The temperature is regularly logged throughout this time.
  4. Log data for a fixed duration, for example during an alarm condition and for ten minutes afterwards.
  5. Use Excel to start and stop logging.
  6. Log from different channels at different rates.
  7. Log from different channels to the same or different files.
  8. Log data from RS232 instruments alongside Modbus and Ethernet devices.

"I just wanted to drop you a short note to say thanks for producing your email newsletter. I thoroughly enjoy each one. Besides being interesting they are very informative - especially the continuing series on RS232 communications. I've learned more about RS232 communications from reading your newsletter articles than from any other single source. Thanks again for the wonderful service that you provide."

"I'm always writing macros in Excel, and 'Monitor' is full of little ideas to assist me. The scrolling charts idea has saved me hours of work. I can now review a dataset in 5 mins, it used to take me a whole day. I find all of the Excel tips very useful."
