How to allocate time to a CV?

Hello,

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":
T(w,=1CV)

I have tried to do a manual to insert it.
However, when I check the value of 1CV it is allways 6000, no matter what time it is. I cannot understand how I should program this part with the new interface.

The old manual says:
If the time is assigned to a channel variable (see Channel Variables (nCV) (P64)) then the CV will contain the number of seconds since midnight, e.g.
T(=1CV) 1CV
Time 17:40:50.748
1CV 63650.7

It is not working in this new dex.
Any idea how i could program this part?

What i get when I run this
Time 17:38:14
1CV 60000.0 (which is wrong)

(It would be nice to be able to copy stuff from the command line.)

Thanks!

Hi acavaco,

May I know the logger firmware version and the dEX 2.0 version? Did you use the same syntax T(=1CV)?

Hi!

The firmware is: 9.22.9125
624573a2bae70

dex2 version: 2.1.25
624573bc7e8f5

I tried exactly that, as was in the manual and I dont get the right output.

Just tried it now again:
1cv returns 30000.0, however it should be ~ 33540. It seems it is doing some kind of rounding.

thank you!

Hi acavaco,

There might be a fault in your logger, you will need to return it for assessment. This is the actual result after assigning time to CV.
