We will release a new dEX 2.0 version next week. This version has many fixes (check the software release notes and known issues), two new language sets (French and Chinese), and an integrated dEX user manual.
In this topic, I would like to share three technical notes related to dEX 2.0:
I have remote access to a DT85 with S/N 106343 and firmware version 9.18. Due to flash expiry I can no longer access the web interface via a local raspberry pi, however I can access via FTP. My questions are:
What is the series of DT85 corresponding to this serial number?
How can I upgrade the firmware over FTP?
I want to use strain gauges on the DT85 and CEM20 device. The strain gauges we will use have a quarter bridge. Does the DT85 device and the CEM20 device have a wheatstone bridge? Or will we use resistors ourselves to make the rest of the devices a full bridge?
It seems the dEX-2 software can't compile dxc files containing the running average function. Is this a bug? I've tried adding the RAV option to a thermocouple channel and I can't upload the program to my DT80 anymore, as it kept telling me compilation failure.
Hello, I am trying to log the voltage current and power data from the m850 power meter via rs485 with a dt80 logger. I found some code examples and put the following code together. I have linked the manual with the modbus register list. Can any one say if this should work? Any Help most welcome
I have DT 80. I want to connect load cell having 4 wire and 6 wire. The colour for 4 wire load cell = red, white, black, green The colour for 6 wire load cell = red, purple, green, yellow, black, brown. How to connect load cell with DT 80 series 4 datataker.
I am trying to calculate the measurement uncertainty of the system. I can't find any info in the manual. Does DT80 series 4 has any specified accuracy for thermocouple measurement or the internal cold junction compensation?
Hello, I am trying to install the Linux version of DEX2.0 on a centOS distribution. However i am unable to complete the installation because of missing library and other ressources. I think the methods i am using are incomplete.
Could you provide the steps and terminal commands to use for the installation and the execution of DEX2?
Hello, I was trying to add a new channel to the current job on my DT80, and when I hit download, it wiped the job completely off the device. Is there a way to recover the job? Or do I have to start all over again?
We have a DT51 we dusted off. The problem I have is that when you startup the logger there are some default scans, spans and switch settings, if I delete the scans and write new scan, when I restart the logger or cycle the power, the logger defaults back to the "built-in" scan and switches.
Is there a setting or switch where i can stop this from happening?
I have a DT80 connected to a CEM20 (id#2). The CEM20 has one 4 wire RTD and six 3-wire RTDs connected to it, reading in at about 1Hz. They are Pt385 RTDs with 100 ohm resistance at 0C. I'm using the II parameter to excite at 2.5mA and, for the moment I am just trying to read ambient temperatures.
The 3 wire RTDs all read between 16 and 17C while the 4 wire reads 22C, when they should al
