Can anyone please give me an idea about how we connect three wire strain gauges to the data taker and what bridge configuration we should follow? I am using a DT85 model data taker.

If anyone can explain the basic things related to this or provide some useful links, it would be a great help as I am very new to data taker.

Thank You.

Hi,

I've been using a DT85 series 4 for logging several 4:20mA signals, and I'm configuring the DT-85 using DEX-2.
the DT85 had displayed all the signal correctly on its display, however when I tried sending a CSV file using FTP, nothing was sent to the FTP server.

her is the DXC

Dear Team,
I'm facing to the Flash that is out of date. I can not access to Dex software to configure data taker DT80. Please help to instruct me to configure it.
Thanks

I am monitoring an air conditioning system for occasional trips of the compressor overload. While monitoring all the usual things like temperatures and pressures and compressor current at 30 second intervals, I also want to monitor the three compressor current transducers "as fast as possible" for 2 seconds following the contactor closure. I've looked at scanning fast in the manual (under "Contin

Hi, I use DT80W-S4 to measure analog (4-20mA) Water Level Sensor. When I calculate the mA that DataTaker measure is different from what the sensor output mA. How to make DT measure the same mA value as what sensor output? I did adjust the ohm of the 100ohm resistor but the resistor value only can be input round number.

Hello i habe trouble with my Programm on my DT85M
Actually it is my first Project with a Datataker

I need to read 200 soil moisture sensors.
Each sensor has 4 variables to measure
175 of them are with modbus where i have to recalculate 2 of the values
25 are with SDI12
The Sensors work and i can communicate with all of them.
So i have 1150 values to measure with this sensor

While troubleshooting a strange voltage reading on a DT85 S3, I narrowed it down to this. When I measured the reading outside of a schedule, it measured the voltage correctly. When the same line of code was used in a schedule, it measured the incorrect value.

Actual voltage measured with a Fluke multimeter at the DT85
terminals: 44.7 mV
Voltage manually measured by DT85 in DeTransfer without

Hello i am new with Datataker

I just installed dex 2.1.18 but it does not find my DT85M.
With firefox and the Flash player i can programm and find the Logger, but it works awfully slow.

The logger is connected via USB.
dtUSB shows the loggers IP.

I would be very pleased if somebody can give me a hint what's wrong with my setup.

I use Windows 10 Logger firmware version is 9.2

Hi,

Can the Ethernet Port on the DT85 be used to send a Modbus command to a TCP/IP Modbus Server Device (e.g. Sensor configured as TCP/IP Modbus Server) as well as receive a Modbus command from the TCP/IP Modbus Client Device (e.g. SCADA) simultaneously?

Thanks.

Hi,

I am trying to configure a sensor to record data using a DT82I.

I have the sensor connected to the green serial connector on the front of the logger. The sensor communicates using MODBUS.

I am attempting to use the following code to log the temperature data from the sensor as 1CV:

1MODBUS(AD1,R4:15,MBF,=1CV)

I keep getting an error code "E122 - Command incompatible with

hi all,
I am having difficulty being able to log onto the Data Taker I have, I have downloaded the dEX2 and the DtUsb software. The computer sees the Data Taker as it shows up in the devices tree, and when I connect with the USB I can see the IP. 127.1.1.1, but again I am unable to log into the Data Taker .

Does anyone have any solutions?

Many thanks
Sam

Hi! Noob here. I'm using my DT80 for simple temperature measurements, succesfully getting two simultaneous signals in ports 1 & 2. My issue is that I want to trigger logging schedules, i.e. by having a circuit in the upper left block (the 1D 2D...GND block) that will start the logging. How would i code this in the interface?

Thanks for any help, and sorry if this is unclear! Not fluent i

When i use the run wizard to set my mains frequency to 60HZ and temperature units to Fahrenheit , I continue to the end where i click on submit. When i collect my data it is in Celsius and when i check logger regional settings i see 50HZ and Celsius. I am using a DT85 with v9.22 firmware.

Hi,
I´m trying to send via serial a variable inside CV, also this I´m trying to send the timestamp.
How is the syntax to send the content of the variable via serial?
I tryed these:
1SERIAL("\w[500]\e{#001SCK<?(timestamp)>7A\013\010}\m[001SCK<>16]")
1SERIAL("\w[500]\e{#001SCK<?(500cv)>7A\013\010}\m[001SCK<>16]")

Best Regards

RESISTANCE NOT SAME AS MULTI-METER

Hi i have just purchased the series 4 DataTaker DT80 and CEM20 expansion modules.
ill keep it simple and quick, i have been testing with 390 Ohm 1% resister (same resister) and compared it with a multimeter.
results:

CEM20#2 = 394.2 Ohm's
CEM20#1 = 394.0 Ohm's
DataTaker = 391.6 Ohm's
Multi meter = 388.4 Ohm's

Is there something i can d

Hello,
We have furnace controller that uses a type C thermocouple to report temperature. I wanted to use a 4-20ma output from the controller and use it as an input for the datataker and have it convert to temperature. I know the datataker can convert mV to temperature, but what about mA? Is this possible?

Hi, i was trying different schedule triggers and i went from 100T to 50T and to 5T. At this point the data taker command window froze. I rebooted the web based command window and the i did delalljobs.
The data taker restarted and then an error pn the display of the data taker came ok, which is SW exception.
Though it says no current job i can't schedule another one because it says the un

Hello,
I am using a DT82E and I was wondering if there was a way to display/report the loggers internal temperature or tell what it is using as a cold junction compensation temperature for thermocouples. I am looking at the mV output and it must be compensating for the cold junction temperature, but I cannot tell where or how.
