Offloading data from more than one logger at a time
Multiple data loggers can be worked with at the same time using a Bulk Offload Tool that is installed at the same time as the Tinytag Explorer software.
The tool allows multiple data loggers to be started, stopped, download or checked with a current reading feature at the same time.
Loggers are connected to a computer using multiple USB cables or pads, either plugged directly into the computer or via a USB hub.
The tool allows the following actions:
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 of the same type. If different types of logger are being configured, you will be prompted to configure the first one of each type.
Stop - this option allows you to stop a batch of data loggers recording.
Get Data - downloads the data from a set of loggers and saves it automatically in a directory of your choice. The software always saves a data file in our .ttd file format (preserving all of the data and settings information from a logging run) and it also allows a user to choose an export format (.xls, .cvs and .txt ) as well. 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.
To use the tool, 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.
Further information on the Bulk Offload Tool can be found in the Application Note on this page.
