Offloading data from more than one logger at a time

Using the Bulk Offload Tool, if you have multiple USB ports, or a USB hub on your computer, it is possible to re-launch, download or obtain current readings from several data loggers at the same time. When the loggers are plugged in the tool will automatically detect them and perform the requested operation.

To start the bulk tool go to: Start >> (all) Programs >> Tinytag Explorer 4.X >> Tools >> Bulk Logger Tool

Next, click the Set Up button and select the serial or USB ports you wish to use. You are then presented with four options:

Launch - allows you to start a set of data loggers recording. You will be prompted to configure the first data logger plugged in and those settings will then be applied to all subsequent data loggers.

Stop - this option allows you to stop a batch of data loggers recording.

Get Data - downloads the data from a logger and saves it automatically into a desktop directory in the format of your choice (by default the file format is the Tinytag .ttd file format, but other formats include .xls, .cvs and .txt). The file name used is the serial number of the data logger and the date it was offloaded (the data files also include a number - 1, 2, 3 etc - to avoid conflicts if more than one offload is performed on a given date).

Current Readings of All - this option allows you to see what multiple data loggers are currently reading. Select the desired operation and then simply plug in each logger in turn. The tool will automatically detect the logger when it is plugged in and perform the requested operation.

When the progress bar reaches 100% the logger can be disconnected and the next one plugged in.
