How do I set the DL1 to automatically start and stop logging?
Enter the DL1 configuration software. In the top right hand corner of the configuration window, you will find the Auto start/stop feature.
To set the DL1 to automatically start logging, enter the drop down menu labelled "Auto start conditions". Now choose the variable that you wish to act as a trigger. (In this example, lateral acceleration has been chosen).
Using the drop down menu directly to the left of this, select either a left or right pointing arrow. An arrow pointing left will commence logging when inputs drop below a certain level, an arrow pointing right will start logging when inputs exceed that level.
Enter the value of the input that you wish to act as a trigger in the final box in this row.
In this example, the DL1 will commence logging when lateral acceleration exceeds 25/256ths g.
A similar process is required to set the DL1 to automatically stop logging. Enter the "Auto stop conditions" menu and select the variable of your choice;
Define whether you want the DL1 to stop logging when readings decline below or exceed a certain value;
and define what that value is.
In this example, the DL1 will stop logging when the vehicles speed drops below 3kph.
When you are satisfied, transfer your configuration to the DL1.
