Tutorial – Quick Start to use:
Recording real time data in waveform:
- Power on the 4 Channel Thermometer first and connect it to a PC USB port with the cable
- Start the program.
- If the connection is successful the panel will display the same value as the 4 Channel Thermometer. If fail to connect the meter with PC, it will display “No Connection” on the panel window
- Select sampling rate from Real-Time Graph window
- When the connection is successful, click “Real Time | run” or from main menu to start recording real time data and there will be a waveform on the Real Time Graph Window.
- Click “Real Time | Stop” or to stop recording.
How to save the recorded real time data to a file?
- Click the graph window you want to save and the graph window will become active, then choose File | Save from main menu or click from the tool bar.
- There will be a save dialog window for you to choose the file name and file type to save.
- There are three types of file format you can choose, binary file (*.ghf), text file (*.txt) and EXCEL format file (*.csv). The *.ghf file use much fewer disk space to save the data than the other two file formats, but it can only be used in this package. Text file can be opened by this package and any other word processor program like word, notepad etc. EXCEL format file can be opened by this package and Microsoft EXCEL.
Note: If decimal separator is comma in your country, this file format will be disabled, because .CSV file also use comma to be data separator.
