Data Logging

Automatic Defragment of TDMS Files

When TDMS are used to log data, an automatic defragment procedure is performed at logging completion. Defragmented TDMS files use less disk space and are loaded into memory in a shorter time.

Custom System Decimal Point for DSV files

Data Separated Values (DSV) files saved by iDaq ADD-ONs can be configured to use system Decimal Point indicated in MS-Windows settings, instead of ".".

More details added to the waveforms saved in DSV

DSV files has an header reach of information regaridng saved channels:* Channel name* Resource name* Device name* Unit of measurement* time stamp of the first sample* sampling period

Smart indexing of saved channels

A smart indexing of channels can be performed when required. If different channels with the same name and device are saved, an index is appended to the channel name in order to avoid channel mixing. Channel indexing is performed only if necessary

Enhanced User Experience

Performance

Minimization of CPU usage

Strip Chart and Easy Data Logger allow users to disable the refresh of real-time signals. When visualization is disabled, acquisition and saving are not affected by the visualization status. This feature is useful to minimize CPU Utilization on embedded systems such embedded CompactDAQ that operates as unsupervised data logger.
