I recently purchased a secondhand DT80 series4. The previous owner says it has had a factory reset. When I power up the unit it reloads the last current job. I have attempted to interact via dEX2 but can't get passed the username/password. I have tried to access via deTransfer but usb connection is refused. I have tried the reset button both single and triple. Suggestions on how to cancel current

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!

Hello,
The DT80 logger is placed in a railcar to continuously measuring the temperature by thermocouple probes inside the refrigerator which is about -20C on the railcar. It sends the data through a modem to our ftp server so that we could remotely reads the temperatures. Since two days ago, we noticed that our thermocouple readings are "underrange" at the channels on CEM20 and "referror" on t

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

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.

Hello,
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

Hello,

I am trying to set a statistical routine that measures every 5s.
Then I have an routine for the 1 minaverage values of the 5s measurements.

Applying statistics:

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 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

Is there a way to turn HOST_PORT (2Serial) on and off within JOB?
I tried this procedure:

RB"Sigfox_ON"("b:",ALARMS:OV:100KB:W60,DATA:OV:1MB)1H
LOGONB

DO{PROFILE HOST_PORT FUNCTION=SERIAL};
DO{XC}

RC"Sigfox_DATA"("b:",ALARMS:OV:100KB:W60,DATA:OV:1MB)X
LOGONC

2SERIAL("{%d[1CV],%E[1001CV],%d[2CV],%E[1101CV],%f[1501CV],\013\010}");
DELAY(W)=12000

I have a wireless load cell from Straightpoint and the output is RS485. I would like to bring this into a DT80 series 2 but am having trouble. I assume this would be done as a Modbus input? I also need to know what syntax I need to use to poll the device to get the data out of it?
If anyone has any experiance with setting this connection up it would be greatly appreciated.

Hi all,

we are facing an issue with our datataker DT80 in downloading some saved data of a schedule configured with the previous version of the software. When I enter the explore data window, the software recognises the quantities with the channels but at the momento of downloading all the data, the software stucks. I don't know if it is a problem of not compatible versions or just a matter
