Logging data to a computer

In addition to the data storage available in the LI-8100A, you can also configure logging directly to a personal computer. You will want to configure measurements the same way as for any survey or long-term measurement.

  1. Click Utilities > PC Data Logging.
  2. Select the Data Values to log.
  3. Set the field delimiter. Typically choose Tab.
  4. Set the Log Frequency (number of measurements per second).
  5. Start logging—This will begin creating the file. Data will be written to the file until you Stop Logging.

The data file that is created will be delimited text file. You can open it in most text editors or spreadsheets, depending upon the formatting of the logged file.
