Software start

DataService/Configurator

To configure channels or connect the devices to the PC, please start the DataService/Configurator on your desktop or from the Windows Start menu.

In the "Connections" tab, you can see the existing connections or add new connections as described above.

The Channels tab is used to configure the individual devices and measuring points. Click on the "+" sign to open the tree view of the device. Under the channel I/O Channels and "Analog Input Group #xx" you will find the respective available channels (device-dependent).

The channels are already displaying random measured values even though they have not yet been configured or no sensors have been connected. This behavior is not a malfunction, but is caused by the device's internal signal processing.

Channel configuration

Double-click on the respective channel to open the channel configuration dialog. Here you can set the name and sensor type, as well as other data relating to the sensor or the channel to be recorded. The configuration dialog also contains connection diagrams for all supported sensor types, which show you exactly which terminals to connect the sensor cables to.

Now select the correct sensor type and connect the sensor to your Loggito device as shown in the connection diagram.

IMPORTANT: Check the "Active" box at the top left so that the channel generates measured values!

You can use the ProfiSignal software Go, Basic or Klicks to display the measured value curve, known as a trend, clearly in diagram form (e.g. y(x), y(t), logic diagram) and then analyze and export the measured values.

After you have started the ProfiSignal software (double-click on the corresponding icon), create a new online analysis by clicking on "File" → "New online analysis..." in the menu.

After selecting the diagram type y(t), the channel selection box opens. The channels to be displayed are selected and added to the channel selection on the right using the "Add" button. Click "OK" to open the trend and display the incoming measured values. If no measured values are visible, please call up the NTP time synchronization in the online help (F1).
