I had installed a DT85 series 4, then changed the memory from 128MB to 2GB, and started up the datataker.
After starting up the LCD shifted its messages to the right of the display tell only half of the massege was shown (for example ethernet IP was but 192.168 only appears)

I made a hard reset and "Reset" command, but after the reset the display keeps shifting again

Good Day Everyone,
I am facing problem with applying program to logger since the power always changes from setted 'always' to 'only when taking reading' which causes our equipment to not function accordingly.

We'd like to use the software Desktop dEX in our company, but as we need it to be installed on around 50 clients we're looking for a possibility to automate installation so no user interaction is necessary.
I didn't find anything online regarding this topic and there were no parameters shown when I tried to start the setup from the commandline with /help or /?.
I'm really looking forward to

I have recently bought a new DT80W-4 and started using the dEX-2 software for programming and downloading logged data.

I have one schedule running where signals from three load-cells and a thermocouple are recorded. The signals from the load cells are in mV and I convert it to kg by multiplying by a fixed factor.

The first columns in the csv-file become Timestamp and TZ as expec

I'm trying to get my dEX schedule to switch 1relay on/off every hour. Is there a way to do this via the job builder interface or does it need to be via command line? Either way I can't seem to get it going.

Please help.

Trying to run the Linux version of DEX2.0.

Using the terminal commands, it seems that there is something missing from the source to install DEX2.0.

I'm no expert at Linux but all of the installation methods of the tar.gz file that I have found are not working.

Any input on Linux installation?

I have M2M(Machin to Machin) Sim with 13 digit number,
We want to access the datalogger through this SIM
also we have SIM based router so please guide and suggest how we can used this SIM to access the Datataker with or without modem datalogger

Best Regards,

I am new to these loggers and have aquired a DT85G series 2. I am in the initial setup stage and can not get communication with the logger via USB or any other connection using dex-2. I am able to connect via the transfer terminal. I have the latest firmware installed and have DTusb as well. I am not sure what I am missing as I can see both connections in the COM ports and universal serial bus co

Hi everyone, I´m trying to use a Cangate to communicate with a Steyr tractor. I can use the snoopj command to see all the broadcasted data and that works fine but when I try to use the RQSTJ command to ask the ECU some PGN I didn´t get an answer. I tried also with common PGNs as 61444 for example but nothing. Maybe the ECU is protected? Is there a mandatory set of PGNs the manufactor

Recently i notice and read that to be able to see the configuration of your DT80 on the web is to migrate it in DEX2. Does it mean you will not be able to open the web portal since Adobe Flash is already EOL? Besides using DEX2 what other alternative can we use if we want to access the GUI on Web portal as we are accessing the dt80 via internet. Hope for your kind response. Thanks

i have problem when loading a program from a saved file.everytime i load the program,it will alter the calculation output(result) that will cause error when uploading the program to everytime i want to resend the program to datataker,i need to re-do the calculation one by one. hope for a solution for this .thank you

Good day

I am working with the DT85W Series 4 (V9.22).

I want to create an "internal graph" while the program is running using the following equation:

=345*LOG((8xTime)+1)+Ambient temperature

I think I will be able to create the graph but I do not know how to create "Time" to be a variable.

On the DT500 there was an option to create a channel named "Time Variable". This allow

I have been trying to use dex-2 to connect to our DT85Ms. I am using a USB cable straight into the device.

When I try to connect, using the port and IP address from DtUSB, it will not find the device. Looking at the code found in the "Development Tools", it keeps throwing back a 403 error. Specifically:

"Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 403 (Forbi
We have to do auto shunt calibration process through program.
For example,
If we have Strain-1, then after offset removing process as we connect the 17134 Ohm or 174650 Ohm then strain value must come as 10000 or 1000 macrostrain, but unfortunately there again some offset for individual channel offset id differ from each other, So we want to remove this offset ,

is it possible to use the dEX2.0 software together with the dEX webversion? Since we use the software, the webversion stays empty.

We use text-based programmes, but the command line interface of the software has a limited amount of characters, so we can't send a complete programme. In the webversion, this worked fine.

Best regards

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.

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.

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.

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
