dear all
who have the experience about controlling the relay by DT80(DSO)?
i have a DTU in my system,but it consume more power.
so i want to control it when the power voltmeter under 12V.

thank you.

Hello! I am a newbie to both using the DT80 and Labview. I am currently taking data from a DT80 using Labview, and from my understanding the DT80 is interpreted as a TCP. My question is: is there a way to turn off the relay from Labview via some switch? Even after the data run is stopped, it continues to scan as evidenced by a really annoying clicking sound that turns on when I start the code for

I am trying to interface with a vacuum pressure gauge in my lab that uses RS485 2 wire, half duplex to communicate via the DT80. If I am reading the manual correctly, this command should work: '#01RD<Carriage Return>', where the 01 is the RS485 address of the gauge and RD is the command to readout the pressure. So I came up with the following command and plopped it into a manual

Edit: First problem solved.

I have a simple question about the DT-80. Will multiple schedules communicating with the same SDI-12 digital channel at different rates interfere with each other, or will DT-80 handle the traffic for me?

I am trying to program our sites (40 or so) with a standard program, just the bare minimum of changes between the sites, IPs etc.

I have an alarm section in there to email us depending on power state.

Is it possible to have the site name from either the profile or a string withing the program embedded into the subject of the email? I can get it into the body, but when the email comes in,

I am currently trying to use an ultrasonic flow meter to determine flow through a pipe, during this time I would like to record the data using the dataTaker DT80. Currently I have connected the flow meter to the DT80 with a RS232 cable using the host port. I have chosen this port as a manual channel and succeeded in the channel setup.

I making a voltage read between 5* and 5#, defining the channel as HV. However, the dt80 read is not the same as measured with a manual multimeter.
I should had something around 12.59V and dt is showing 11,6V.

I'm not used to deal with HV channels, so what I'm missing here?

I've tried to check if some attenuation option is enabled but i'm not getting how to overcome this...

I've recently installed two new instruments for rain and wind measurements (HSC channels).

However, sometimes the logger skips or misses a step (1s acquisition rate). why is this happening? - file with data example. I've identified in yellow (temp diff) some of the problems.

The logger has other schedules in operation.

I tried to upgrade the firmware of a DT80-3 from 9.08 to 9.18 using a USB flash device but it wasn't upgraded and did show an error (DT8x Bootstrap, file error). I I've used the files for new firmware before and it did work. Does anyone know what could be the problem?

Hi all,
I've been using DeTransfer for a while now, and I use DDE commands to send data to another software package that does all of my logic and fancy GUI stuff.

However I've noticed something funny on of my systems - after a while of acquiring data, slowly but surely, the DDE data gets corrupted. The channel names (and DDE modifiers) somehow leak into the data. So say I want to read the

Hi there,

I'm using two loggers, one DT80M Series 3 and one Series 4.

I know that I can switch the isolated 5V power output on using the command:


However, this setting is not persistent and vanishes after a logger looses power (and the backup battery is down). Is there a way to switch 5V power on using one of the profile parameter settings, making it thus persistent?

I've been communicating with my DT80 using a little python code, configuring a serial port and sending string commands to the datataker. I've been successful using the USB cord that came with the machine, however when I use an RS-232 to usb cord, the DT80 doesn't seem to receive (or send) any information.

How can I set up the DT80 for serial communication with an RS-232?

I will start a schedule when 4 or 5 CV's changes from 0 to 1 or 1 to 0
Hoe can I configure this when I programming in dEX.
I can only configure 1CV (Advanced triggering)
In program language it must be RB1..9+CV ?

An ungrounded differential signal source can float outside the common mode range of the logger inputs. Possible ways to prevent this are:

grounding one of the signal lines at the logger
grounding one of the signal lines at the logger through a moderate value resistor, eg. 10k (
grounding both of the signal lines through high value resistors, eg. 100k,

dataTaker is a powerful and versatile device and it's able to get data from almost any sensor type. This comes handy when designing new serial sensors with custom protocols as you can use existing well proven hardware for actual data acquisition. However the serial channel doesn't support any kind of data packet integrity check. It would be great to get computed CRC16 or even CRC32 from
