HowDoI / LogAutomatically

How do I set the DL1 to automatically start and stop logging?


step 1:

Enter the DL1 configuration software. In the top right hand corner of the configuration window, you will find the Auto start/stop feature.


step 2:

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).


step 3:

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.


step 4:

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.


step 5:

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;


step 6:

Define whether you want the DL1 to stop logging when readings decline below or exceed a certain value;


step 7:

and define what that value is.

In this example, the DL1 will stop logging when the vehicles speed drops below 3kph.


step 8:

When you are satisfied, transfer your configuration to the DL1.
