How fast can I log data?

How fast can you read thermocouple data? The manual says it is a sum of: Measurement time, processing time, communications time and logger preparation time.

But it does not provided values for all of these.

So how fast can you log analogue data without accuracy issues or channel ghosting? Is there a formula?

Hi TCDLUser,

The maximum sampling speed of dataTaker is 40 Hz across all channels. It means if you have one channel, it will give you 40 data points per second.

For two channels, each channel will give you 20 data points per second, and so on.

Best regards,

I don't think it's a linear function? The manual suggests there is an initial time per set of measurements + time per measurement, which seems logical.
