Data acquisition unit, GEODATALOG 8

Geotechnical data acquisition unit - GEODATALOG8
GEODATALOG 8 Network mode: up to 8 units
CHANNELS CONFIGURATION PANEL_DATACOMM2: this panel displays all the connected units with their transducers. The transducers can be grouped and combined by the user for matching different applications
GRAPH PANEL_DATACOMM2: this panel displays recorded data for the selected test plotted on a customizable
CALIBRATION PANEL_DATACOMM2: this panel displays transducers details and tabulated and graphical calibration data, and contains functions for performing new calibrations, loading archived calibrations and uploading the data to the GEODATALOG 8
CHANNEL MANAGEMENT PANEL_DATACOMM2: this panel is for managing transducer calibration data and is also where the IP address and channel hardware settings of the GEODATALOG 8 units connected to the PC can be edited
TEST CONTROL PANEL_DATACOMM2: this panel is shown when a test is started and displays live readings for the selected group’s channels, with buttons for showing the recorded data on a graph or in a table. Each group has its own panel, allowing multiple tests to be monitored simultaneously.
