  • P1K not creating new log file.

    CPU P1-540
    SW V3.5.1

    I have a P1K used as simple testing device where part of the operator's task is to enter, through a C more micro, the part and serial number. This information is added to a CSV file on the included SD card that the operator emails to me and another colleague at the end of the day. The P1K is powered up before the starting the tests, and powered down at the end of the day. We just noted a new CSV file has not been created since Friday (1-17), so all testing of Monday and today (Tuesday) have not been logged. Has anyone else experienced this? If so, what was the fix?

    Do you have any CPU errors?

        +1 for taunting the silly requirements that this forum imposes

          How much data are you logging in a day? Per help topic P053:
          Note: If event logging is selected and data log buffer reaches 512 bytes of data, then the buffer will write 512 bytes segments to the pen drive (unless pen drive is not present), in attempt to lower data log buffer below 512 bytes. However, how fast the buffer is filled is dependent on the frequency of event, the number of tags, and data types of these tags selected for logging.
          In addition:
          Note: A new log file will be generated in the below cases. If a scheduled interval is chosen these cases are still applicable:

          1) Stop -> Run (including power up)

          2) New Config [New Project] sent to CPU (Run or Stop Mode transfers)

          3) Pen drive eject

          4) Set Date/Time

          5) Scheduled file name change

            So maybe smaller amounts of data need to be written more frequently, rather than a bulk transfer of data?
