Environmental Logging Measurement solutions for temperature and other parameters
PicoLog data acquisition software is a powerful but flexible program for collecting, analysing and displaying data. PicoLog can be used with the following product ranges:
Data acquisition / data logging products
Oscilloscope products (for high speed data acqusition / logging)
Temperature and humidity converters and loggers.

Real time data collection, analysis and display
PicoLog displays data in a number of views, which can be activated as and when required. These views can be activated both during and after data collection.
Enables you to start / stop recording and specify recording files. It shows the current readings and alarm conditions for each channel. All settings such as scaling, channels and sampling are controlled from the recorder view.
XY graph view
Displays one parameter against another. Useful for plotting voltage against current, for example.
Displays text data in a format that can be easily ‘copied and pasted’ into other applications. Data can also be saved to disk in standard ASCII text format.
Graphs can be displayed both during and after data collection. Each channel can be displayed in its own graph or multiple channels can be displayed in the same graph. Axes can be setup manually, automatically or in chart recorder mode. Multipliers allow you to magnify areas of interest. Graphs can be ‘copied’ into the clipboard and then ‘pasted’ into reports.
Attach notes to data.
Displays previously recorded data. It enables you to scroll quickly through stored files to compare results on successive runs. The player can be used to examine old data whilst new data is still being recorded.
PicoLog for Windows works in two modes: player mode for displaying previously recorded data and recorder mode for recording new data. You can have more than one copy of PicoLog for Windows running at once, so you can use the player to analyse old data whilst recording new data.
PicoLog can collect data from multiple converters at the same time. This not only allows a mix of voltage input units to be used on the same PC, but also allows other PC based instruments such as the TC-08 (temperature measurement) and the ADC-200 oscilloscope to be used at the same time.
Data can easily be transferred (either as graphs or raw data) to other Windows applications by using the clipboard (copy and paste). Graphs can also be saved to disk (as Windows Metafiles) and data from the spreadsheet can be saved in text format. Current readings can be transferred using Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE). PicoLog also supports IP networking so it is possible to transfer measurements from a remote site via an existing LAN, company network, or even over the Internet.
Parameter Scaling can be used to convert raw data into standard engineering units. A wide range of equation and table lookup scaling options are provided.
Additional parameters can be calculated, for example to calculate power output from a boiler you may need to multiply a flow reading from one channel with the temperature difference between two further channels.
Alarm Limits can be set for each channel to alert the user should a parameter go out of a specified range.
PicoLog data acquisition software supports IP Networking. This enables remote data collection from Pico’s full range of data acquisition products.
