Describes how to tell the RFMS to log waveforms to the host.

Configure the Logging of Flux Waveforms

On the Log Settings tab, you can tell the RFMS how to log waveforms to the host.


Complete these steps:

  1. On the Host app screen, click the Settings button, then click the Log tab.

  2. In the Local Data Folder field, enter the location on the host PC where the RFMS puts the waveform files when they are available for storage.

    These files are also saved temporarily on the RFMS using a “store and forward” mechanism that reduces data loss if the Ethernet connection to the host is lost temporarily.

  3. In the Max Number of Files field, enter the maximum number of files to save locally on the RFMS when the Ethernet connection is disrupted.

    When the connection is restored, all temporarily stored files are sent to the host as fast as possible. If the number of files buffered locally is less than the Max Number of Files, then no waveforms are lost. However, if the connection is down for a long time, only the most recent Max Number of Files are sent to the host when the connection is reestablished.

  4. In the Logging Interval field, enter the time period after which waveforms can be saved to files.

    While the RFMS acquires waveforms at the Update Interval specified in the Acquisition settings (Configure the Flux and Load Channels, these waveforms are not saved to a file. Waveforms are saved to a file only after this time specified here has elapsed.



    The configuration of baseline reference waveforms storage is managed separately in an RFMS configuration file, which contains settings for the number of files for each 1% level of load and the time in seconds between saving of the raw flux signal and the last time a waveform was saved for that load level.

  5. Click OK to close the Settings dialog.
