DLoG Config
Installation
Command line parameters
The parameter MAKETEXT is available to translate software into foreign languages. This
means text resources can be exported to *.txt files. Each time a file is created, a
message appears prompting the user to confirm it. Simply add the language code to the
end of this newly generated text file. For example, DLoGCfg_.txt would then be
DLoGCfg_ENG.txt if it contained the English text. During text file generation, files with
the same name are automatically overwritten. German is the system default language. It
does not need to exist as a text file. The program terminates once the text files have
been generated.
5.6. Starting the program
Start DLoG Config via the Windows Programs menu under Start.
5.6.5. Password check
If a password was entered in the DLoG Config Settings menu, this will be requested
when starting the program. The password is case-sensitive; the program terminates after
three incorrect entries.
The default password ex works is gold. Please change this in the Settings menu to suit
your requirements.
5.6.6. Accessing Config with Windows 7 and WES 7
As of software version 3.10, there are two different ways to access DLoG Config from the
Start menu in Windows 7 and WES 7 based on User Account Control (UAC).

and
Timeout
to terminate programs
on shutdown
If you do not want the computer to shut down immediately
after switching it off using the ignition or power key, but rather
it should remain on for a time, then enter an after-run time (in
seconds) here.
Shutdown times
The length of time until shutdown consists of two counters:
1. After-run time
The after-run time begins with the switching off of the ignition.
The shutdown counter is displayed on the monitor (according
to the settings). In this countdown the after-run time is
counted downwards. If the after-run time has elapsed, a
message for the shutdown will be displayed in the Shutdown
dialog.
During this time, the computer can be returned to normal
operating status with the ignition.
2. Timeout to terminate programs
Next, all applications are informed that Windows will
shutdown.
After this, the timeout begins counting down – but a counter
is no longer displayed in the Shutdown dialog.
When the timeout elapses, there will be a 'hard' switch-off of
all applications that were still running. Then the system
shutdown is started.
Switch-off time
In order to allow enough time for the system shutdown after
the program timeout, set the switch-off time to at least 20 s
plus the program timeout. Settings lower than this value will
cause a warning to appear when data is being saved.
Block input if ignition
is off
If the ignition of the connected vehicle is off, all input to the
computer may be blocked.

that allows the user to immediately start the shutdown.

strength
This value provides information about the strength of the signal
received by the DLoG computer.
The signal strength can be displayed as a dBm value, in
percentages, or as a diagram, depending on the configuration
selected in the WLAN dialog.
Q = Quality
This value provides information about the quality of the signal
received by the DLoG computer.
The quality can be displayed as a dB value, as a percentage, or as a
diagram, depending on the configuration selected in the WLAN

Host name
The host name is displayed according to the setting in the WLAN
menu.
IP address
The IP address of the DLoG Industrial PC is displayed according to
the setting in the WLAN menu.
13.3. Basic legend for signal strength
Signal strength alone says nothing about the quality of the signal. The quality depends
on the ratio of signal to noise (SNR = Signal/Noise Ratio = RSSI, Radio Signal Strength
Indicator).
The following values are a good rule of thumb:
• Signal strengths less than -70 dBm are good.
• Quality between 10 and 20 dB is good.
Important: These values are only approximate and depend on many factors (different
sensitivity of receivers, data bandwidth, etc.)

13.6. Write WLAN log file
To optimize the WLAN network, or e.g. to analyze errors in roaming, a WLAN log file can
be generated using the DLoG Config program.
1. For this, edit the Config_local.cfg file in the DLoG directory of the Industrial PC
(e.g. with Notepad).
2. The entry
"Debug_Logging=0"entry is located by default in section CfgWLANStatus
0 means: no log file will be generated.
1 means: a log file will be generated and written to the DLoG directory. Filename of
the log file: WLAN_DebugLog.txt.
3. Restart the computer to activate the setting and generate the log file.
Caution:

Afterwards make sure to set the "Debug_Logging" entry to "0".
Otherwise system errors are a threat, since if the EWF is
