Hi dataTaker Users,

As promised, this is the new version of dEX 2.0. It is a few days late due to some unforeseen circumstances.

You can check the user manual, the release notes, and known issues within the software. After you install the software click the Application menu to access those documents.

Please find the installer download link

Hi dataTaker Users,

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:

We are recently running DT80 and noticed that the DT80 screen shows "DT80 restarted SW exception". I checked the manual and it mentioned that "This indicates a possible problem with the DT80 firmware. Contact dataTaker Technical Support if you see this message". I couldn't find the contact of technical support. Please help! Thanks!

We recently purchased the DT80-4 to work in low temperature to read T type thermocouple probes. It is connected with 2 thermocouples on the main module and 40 thermocouples on the CEM20 module. The main and extension module are both working in about -20C environment and 40% relative humidity. To calibration the thermocouples, we use glycol to simulate the low temperature situation. When we put so
I am logging 2 Pressure transducers (mV) and 2 digital counters on a DT80 series 2.
I have set the scan rate to 200mS. I have found that the DT
on about every 7th scan there is about 400-500mS interval
I know these are not high speed loggers but are there any settings I could use to speed up the readings. I only need to scan at the fast rate for about 20seconds during testing

Hi Please Help!

Offline Status : Developer Tools gives this error!


I know this occurs when you use port number that is common for other function such as port 7700 or the target port was not running on JSON script but still giving a response

but how do I fix?

(I have up to date firmware and software)

Good day, can you assist please, i installed my DT80 in a truck to record data. Logger stopped recording, i set limit at 30Mb and programmed to stop recording when limit is reached. When i tried to download data through Dex 2, logger just hanged, did not download. I tried USB, download started but when i pushed X to light up the screen to check status, download stopped and setup cleared. I urgent
I'm pretty new to Dex2 and DT and I'm trying to connect a power meter using Modbus RTU (RS 485) to Serial Port in my DT85. I've tried to write my own script with help of many code examples found in internet which didn't work. I also tried to program DT with Dex2 using graphical features it provides.

Code below is generated by Dex2:

And this is code I wrote which can't be eve

Hi i am looking to save to a CV channel the time stamp of when temperature sensor connected to the DT85 reaches a certain temperature 75C. therefore the CV channel will merely have the time this occurred

I have somehow locked myself out of my DT80M logger. In the Dex 2 software I set user level security to on by mistake. Now when I try to connect to the logger from DEX I get asked for a user name and password. I have guessed the default as datataker and datataker as defaults without success. How do I reset this I cannot see an obvious way.

I'm trying to add a ultrasonic RS485 sensor to my schedule on a DT85 ser 3 still using web interface.

The sensor has 4 wires: orange V+, black gnd, blue RS485-B, white RS485-A

My datataker supplier has kindly helped out by noting connect blue RS485-B to RTSY and white RS485-A to TxZ terminals.

DEX2.0 for Windows and MacOS.

I´m working over newer DT80W and DT82E and stability´s DEX2.0 is not good. I´m not sure if the FW DT8X or if the recently update of Windows of MACOS.

DEX 2.0 the problems are the same. When "apply to datalogger" DXC sometime fails and I must start full configuration again. It hangs up.

I am a new user of Datataker DT85. Some of the thermocouple readings show a large instant jumping up (about 1~3°C) which is unreasonable and groundless although I do not change anything.

Also, when I turn on the humidity sensor power supply, the readings of the thermocouples are jumping about 10 °C.
Could you help give some advice about this problem? Many thanks.

It was a brand new logger (2009?) . I had updated to latest firmware.
It was working fine for about 3 weeks
Anyone got any ideas ? A hard reset has not fixed it

I am a new user of DT85GM (and CEM20). I am going to use DT85GM for performing load test wherein we plan to use vibrating wire strain gauges and LVDTs (load cell is planned to be connected to another data logger).
Since my background is in Civil Engineering so going through all the details of the user manual appears to be a time consuming task, something that our project timelines d

My issue here is that the values being registered do not match the ones I want to have. It is also saving the instantaneous 1 min value of the variable. Is there a way not to save t

We are using the DT85 to track temperature data by the second with both k-type TC's and RTD's. We are converting the C degree to F with Polynomial 1. What we are finding when we export our data to CSV is that the temperatures have 6 decimal places. Is there a way to round these up/down before exporting?

We have just started using our DT85. It was working great in testing but now we have an issue. We are getting a DXC Compilation Failure when we connect with dEX-2. What could cause this and how could we remedy this? And now we can only connect 1 instance of dEX-2 at a time. Trying to connect on other devices at the same time causes the DT85 to shut down and reboot - then only one connects to it a

I have several DT80 running in radiometric stations. Now, I need to make modifications to the program of one the stations and seems to me I have to do it from scratch because I cannot modify the old program (which is very long...)

I want to program this part in the new "language":

I have multiple DT85 devices (both 3 and 4). One of the series 3 units can be seen by DEX2 using either USB or ethernet connection but when I try and check connectivity it always says "Device Offline". It changes the light indicator on DEX2 from red to yellow.

I saw another post that said to check the console errors. Unfortunately, I do not have any console errors as DEX is seeing that there
