Applies To:  All 1529’s

 

Problem Description:  I have logged data in the 1529 and wish to save it to my computer.

 

Resolution/Work Around:    The 1529 is capable of data logging up to 8,000 time- and date-stamped measurements and can be logged in intervals  of 0.1, 0.2, 0.5, 1, 2, 5, 10, 30, or 60 seconds or 2, 5, 10, 30, or 60 minutes.

 

The 1529 will allow you to either Demand Log or Auto Log.  The Demand Log submenu allows measurements to be logged on demand, one reading at a time. Readings are stored to the instrument’s memory and assigned a label for easy recall and organization of data. The instruments memory can store up to 100 demand log readings.  The Auto Log function allows measurements to be logged automatically in user-selectable intervals. Readings are stored to the instrument’s memory and assigned a label for easy recall and organization of data. The instruments memory can store up to 8,160 auto log readings.

 

Once the data is logged, you can use a program like HyperTerminal to help capture the data and store it into a .txt file.  To do this you will need to connect your 1529 to your computer and run the HyperTerminal program.  Name the new connection and click OK.  Connect Using COM1 or a com port that is assigned to the 1529 and click OK.  COM1 properties should be 9600 baud, 8 data bits, None parity, 1 stop bits, and None flow control.  Note: baud rate may be different, depends on the settings in the 1529.  Then, click OK.  Now, on the menu bar locate Transfer and click on it.  Click on Capture Text.  Name the txt file and where it will be located on your PC.  Click Start.  On the 1529, Press the Enter/Menu button.  Scroll to the right and select LOGGING and press ENTER button.  Scroll to Demand Log or Auto Log, depending on the log session performed, and press Enter.  Scroll to the right and select Print Data and press Enter button.  Select the Label that the data was recorded under and Serial and press Enter.  Press Enter to continue.  This will load the data to the HyperTerminal.  Once done, in HyperTerminal on the menu bar locate Transfer and click on it.  Click on Capture Text.  Click on Stop.  The data has now been stored to a txt file on your computer.
