  • Up to 1 MS/s sample rate
  • USB connected and powered
  • Data acquisition software and SDK included

 

A distinguished pedigree

The PicoLog 1000 Series is the result of a distinguished lineage that goes back to the release of our first multi-channel data logger - the ADC-11 - in 1993. The original ADC-11, and its successor the USB ADC-11, proved to be the perfect choice for users wanting a low-cost way to measure and record multiple signals. The PicoLog 1000 Series builds on this success to give you the same low-cost data acquisition but with greater power and performance. (Because the ADC-11 was so popular we've also added a USB ADC-11 compatibility mode which allows you to use your PicoLog 1000 logger as a direct replacement to the USB ADC-11.)

An expandable multi-channel data acquisition systemterminal board

The budget model PicoLog 1012 has 12 input channels. The powerful PicoLog 1216 has 16. Need more channels? No problem. Using PicoLog you can connect up to 4 Pico data loggers to one PC - giving you a potential 64 channel PicoLog 1000 Series data acquisition system, or the ability to use your PicoLog 1000 logger with other devices such as the USB TC-08 thermocouple data logger.

 

External Terminal Board


The external terminal board has screw terminals to allow sensor wires to be attached to the data logger without soldering. The terminal board also has locations where you can fit resistors to offset and extend the input ranges of the logger.

 

Fast and accurateMulti Channel Picolog Display

With 10 or 12-bit resolution and multiple sampling modes, a PicoLog 1000 Series logger will meet your data logging needs. The PicoLog 1000 Series has 3 sampling modes: Streaming mode allows channel voltage readings to be logged continuously at up to 100 kS/s, while block mode captures up to the full 1 MS/s sample rate of the logger for a duration limited by the 8000 sample buffer, both these speeds applying to single-channel operation. The PicoLog application provides an extra mode, real-time continuous sampling, which provides averaged, time-accurate readings with automatic measurements at up to 1 kS/s on any number of channels.











 

PicoLog 1000 Software


PicoLog data acquisition software is a powerful but flexible program for collecting, analyzing and displaying data.
 

  • Collect up to 1 million samples
  • Easy and intuitive to use
  • Real-time data collection, analysis and display
  • Programmable alarm limits can be set for each channel
  • Data can be exported to spreadsheets and databases
  • Supports multiple different Pico data loggers on the same PC
  • Uses your PC monitor to give large color display, ideal for education and training
  • Waveforms can be saved, printed or emailed from your PC
  • Supports Windows XP, 7, 8 and 10
 

PicoLog views

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.
 

Recorder view

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.
 

Spreadsheet view

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.
 

Graph view

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 set up manually, automatically or in chart recorder mode. Multipliers allow you to magnify areas of interest. Graphs can be copied and then pasted into reports.


XY graph view

Displays one parameter against another. Useful for plotting voltage against current, for example.
 

Notes view

Notes view allows you to attach notes to data.
 

Player view

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 while new data is still being recorded.
 

Exporting data and remote logging


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. 

PicoLog data acquisition software also supports IP networking. This enables remote data collection from Pico’s full range of data acquisition products.

 

Scaling and alarms


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.[High speed data acquisition]Software Development Kit (SDK)

As well as the supplied PicoLog software, also included are drivers and examples for those who want to write your own software or interface to other programs.

Software drivers are supplied for Microsoft Windows, Apple Mac (OS X) and Linux (including Raspberry Pi and BeagleBone).  

Example code shows how to interface to third-party software packages such as Microsoft Excel and National Instruments LabVIEW as well as how to write your own software in C / C#.
