WISE Data Logger Function

Data Logger Introduction

WISE-580x offers one set of Data Logger function that allows system to record I/O channel data or Internal Register value in Data Log file (CSV format) on a microSD card at a scheduled time or under specific condition. In addition, it also allows to send the data files by FTP or Email to the remote site at a scheduled time for further data analysis. If you encounter a transmission difficulty such as network interruption, remote server off-line or WISE-580x power break, the data will be stored and safely kept in the Data Logger, and will be retransmitted again when the transmission is resumed.

Data Logger Setting

The configuration page is shown as below:

Follow the following steps:

  1. Select “Enable Data Logger” to enable the data logger function.
  2. In the “File Name” field, input the data log file name. This name has to be in English; the length is limited to 8 characters
  3. The “Data Format” field allows to edit data format and content. The I/O channel drop down lists help for easy editing data log content format. Following is examples for data log content coding; the following coding indicates: I-7000 module(Address:1) AI4, I-7000 module (Address:4) DI5, I-7000 module(Address:2) DO4.

    In the data log file, current date, time and data log type (Period recording or Event trigger recording) will also be automatically pasted to each data log item. The final data log content format will be like this:

  4. Select “Sampling Period” to enable period recording function in WISE. When the time reaches the period time interval, the data will be recorded once in pre-set data format. The data recording will keep going periodically. There are ten options: 10 secs, 30 secs, 1 min, 2 mins, 3 mins, 5 mins, 10 min, 20 min, 30 min, 1 hour.
  5. In the “Close Log File” field, select the time interval to close a data log file. There are eight options: 1 hour, 2 hours, 3 hours, 4 hours, 6hours, 8 hours, 12 hours, 24 hours.

    For example, if the “Close Log File” time interval is set as 3 hours, and “Sampling Period” is set as 5 mins, it means WISE-580x will record data every 5 mins. And the log file is created at 0 o‟clock, 3 o‟clock, 6 o‟clock, 9 o‟clock, 12 o‟clock, 15 o‟clock, 18 o‟clock,and 21 o‟clock. When the system time reached these specified time, the Data Log file will be closed automatically (the time interval of this first file will be shorter than 3 hours) and create a new data log file to record another 3 hours and so on.

  6. Click the check box to specify the Log file to be sent by Email or FTP. You can select both ways to send the Log file. If no option is selected, the data file will not be sent.
  7. If you select the option to send file by Email, select the Email index you are going to send to when the data file is closed. The Email of this index has to be previously set and the file will be sent as an attachment.
  8. If you select the option to send file by FTP, input the FTP Server IP address, port number, login ID, password, FTP path and Timeout information. There are two options for “Time to Upload”, you can choose to upload the file when the time of the Log file reached the “Closed File” time interval via FTP, or upload all files saved at that day at a scheduled time. The upload time can be set from the dropdown list. The range of FTP timeout is between 1 and 65535.
  9. After all Data Logger settings are completed, click “Save” button to save the changes.

Please note:

The micro SD card will be formatted automatically when it is inserted into WISE-580x at the first time.

The data logger files inside the micro SD card will be stored by month. When the micro SD card‟s free space is less than 20%, WISE-580xwill delete the old log files, and only keeps the data logger files of the last month. Please don‟t keep any file other than the data logger files in the micro SD card. These files will also be deleted by the system according to this rule.

Data Logger Application Example

Scenario Example Document

In a factory wastewater level monitoring application, a WISE-5800 is connected to an I-7012FD module, the AI channel 0 of this module is connected to the water level sensor to get water level data. During the factory operating hours, when the water level is below 10, it is not necessary to keep recording the water level; however when the water level reaches over 10, it will start to record the water level every 5 minutes and send back related water level data every hour by email. And the whole day water level data will be uploaded via FTP at midnight 0 o’clock.
