Launcher software
Launcher software serves to open the above seven kinds of software, to use the Project
function, and to protect software settings. When you install Data Acquisition Software 32
Plus, the Launcher software, (4) Historical Viewer software, (6) Remote Monitor software
and (7) File Utility software will automatically be saved in the Windows ‘Program’ file.
If you have made changes in any of the five kinds of software ((1) through (5) above)
and saved those, you can use Launcher software to open the software with changed
conditions next time you use it. Software with such changed conditions saved will be
referred to as a ‘Project.’ ‘Project function’ is the name used for saving and opening
Projects. The Project function is useful if you want to use Historical Viewer to observe
DA100/DC100/DR measurement data on only one PC with a number of people . It
enables you to observe waveforms without influencing someone else’s settings.
1 Software Configurator
Enables you to make operation settings to the software. There are four setting displays.

Communications
Used to select a directory to save logging data to, and to make several communication
settings between DA100/DC100/DR hardware and software.
10
Diagnostic
Used to make the necessary system configurations when using your DA100/DC100/DR
for the first time, or when changing modules attached to a unit.
11
Calibration
Used to calibrate DA100/DC100/DR.
Index
Network
Used to set IP address, Subnet Mask, and the Default Gateway of DA100/DC100/DR.
2 DARWIN Hardware Configurator
Enables you to make settings to the DA100/DC100/DR. Settings differ for each device.
The hardware setting data can be saved to a PC.
Three kinds of data can serve as basis for further settings:
• Data earlier saved to a PC harddisk or to a floppydisk from the DA100/DC100/DR.
• Data settings as they remained when Hardware Configurator was last closed.
• Data settings of a directly PC-connected DA100/DC100/DR.

1.1 DAQ 32 Plus/DAQ 32 Plus Client Package Introduction
3 Logger
Enables you to display DA100/DC100/DR measurement and calculated Math data
on your PC’s monitor, and save measurement, calculated Math and report data to its
harddisk. Allows you to set the interval for saving data, and for display renewal.
• Saving measurement data can be selected to start either,
• immediately, or,
• at a fixed time.
• Saving measurement data can be selected to end either,
• immediately, or,
• at a fixed time, or,
• after a fixed data number has been reached.
• Report data will be saved when created by DA100, DC100, or DR.
Logger itself can make daily report files.
On your PC you can display the following monitors:
Alarm monitor
Displays the alarm condition of each channel. Useful as alarm monitor.
Trend monitor
Displays both measurement and computed waveforms. Useful for trend observation.
Color monitor
Displays measurement and computed data in selected color. Useful for monitoring
trends for all measurement and computed data.
Meter monitor
Analog display of measurement and computed data. Depending on the aim of your
observation, choose either a bargraph, meter, or thermometer monitor.
Numeric monitor
Displays numeric values of both measurement and computed waveforms. Useful
when reading a large number of values at the same time.
Monitor settings can be connected by clicking the Link button.
An auto-processor automatically converts data logging and report files into Excel/ASCII/
Lotus 1-2-3 formats. Report files are automatically printed.
The monitor server that supplies network-connected personal computers with data, is
activated with Logger software.
4 Historical Viewer
Using Historical Viewer you can use the following 3 kinds of data to monitor waveforms,
numerical values, etc. on a PC screen, or to print them out.
• Measurement data saved to a harddisk using Logger software.
• Measurement data from earlier obtained software for DARWIN instruments (DOS or
Windows).
• Measurement data saved directly to a floppydisk from a DR/DC100.
It is possible to use a cursor to read the values of data on display, or make calculations
with selected data.
Data can be converted to Excel/ASCII/Lotus 1-2-3 formats, and then saved.
Report data can be displayed, printed, and their formats can be converted.
5 Tag Editor
Tag stands for an optional character string (such as a terminal or signal name) used to
distinguish waveforms in stead of graph and channel numbers. Use the 16 character ‘Tag
Comment’ or the 8 character ‘Tag No.’ For Logger or Historical Viewer software, the Tags
will be displayed instead of the channel number. It is possible to receive tag settings from
or send them to a DR/DC100. Tag settings are not possible for the DA100.

Before Operation
The Remote Monitor function is used to observe DARWIN data with a personal computer
connected to the host through a network. Also, using Gate software applications, you can
use the DX100P/DX200P, WT series instruments, or DAQ32Plus to acquire or monitor
data using the Remote Monitor from other devices that are not directly compatible,
including Yokogawa or other manufacturer’s measuring instruments and OPC servers
(DCS and PLC etc.). It is possible to display the same monitors as for Logger software:
an Alarm Monitor, Trend Monitor, Color Graph Monitor, Digital Monitor, and a Meter
Monitor.
An Ethernet port is required for the PC (host/remote monitor), and Windows TCP/IP
protocol must be installed.
Furthermore, for the host it is necessary that DAQ 32 Plus Logger software is
communicating and that the monitor server is operating.

• DELTA (difference between channels)
Computation can be done only in the same unit. Destination channels should lie
within the first channel No. to the last channel No. range. The number of the reference
channel (REF) should be lower than the number of the destination channels. The
default setting for the reference channel is 01.
The type of input and the measuring range in the destination channel are the same
as for the reference channel. After setting the DELTA (difference between channels),
if you attempted to change the type of input and the measuring range, setting the
difference between channels is released, thereby the type of input and the measuring
range in the destination channel are returned to their original settings, and the span is
returned to its initial value.
• mA (DC current, mA input module)
This input can be set only for mA input channels. The measuring range is -20 mA to
20 mA.

emote RJC*(RRJC) ← Can be selected only with optional math
function (/M1 option)
In measuring temperature with thermocouples within the same unit, when the item
to be measured is located at a great distance, you can setup relay terminals near
the item, measure the temperature of the relay terminal section using thermocouples
(reference channel), and use the resultant value as the reference junction
compensation value for the temperature measurement. By connecting a copper wire
between the relay terminal and input terminal of the input module, and a thermocouple
between the DUT and relay terminal, you can measure the temperature of the DUT
without the need for a large amount of expensive thermocouples.

Alarm setting
The following six types of alarm are provided for each channel.
Up to four alarm values (levels) can be designated for each channel. For DI input, alarm
values are set to “1” (ON) or “0” (OFF). If an alarm value is designated, an alarm signal
will be output from the alarm output relay when the measured value reaches this alarm
value.
• H: Upper limit alarm
Triggers an alarm when the measured value exceeds the designated alarm value.
• L: Lower limit alarm
Triggers an alarm when the measured value drops below the designated alarm value.
• RH: Rate-of-change upper limit alarm
Triggers an alarm when positive change of measured value exceeds the specified
value within the specified interval.

Reflash alarm
In general, in cases where one alarm output relay is shared by more than two channels,
no alarm signal will be issued if an alarm occurs in another channel or at another alarm
level, once an alarm has occurred in one channel and the alarm signal has been issued.
In this case, the alarm signal can be issued by designating the reflash output relay
(designated by alarm setting) as the alarm output relay. Up to six relays can be
designated as reflash relays.

Math for PULSE input module
The operator is TLOG.PSUM(XXX) where XXX is the channel number. If your DA100
does not have the optional Math function (/M1 option), TLOG.PSUM(XXX) is the only
operator available.
When the Range is set to “RATE” (momentary pulse count mode) the count number is
integrated. When the Range is set to Gate (contact ON/OFF detection mode) the ON
time is integrated. Because both values are integrated values of the measurement made
every 1 s, the same value is held for a duration of 1 s when the measurement interval is
set to 0.5 s.
The maximum count number or ON time is set with SPAN. The highest value that can be
set for the maximum value is 99999999. The integration interval is set to relative time or
absolute time by setting the event to timer in the event/action function. Also, action is set
to timer reset.

You can select whether to treat a result of the computational expression TLOG.
PSUM (XXX) exceeding 99999999 as an overflow or to continue computing with the
value following 99999999 reset to 0. Computing results from a separate calculation
of TLOG.PSUM (XXX). If you set the computational expression as TLOG.PSUM
(XXX)*K01(K01=100), the above action there are no changes even if the result of the
calculation TLOG.PSUM (XXX)*K01 exceeds 99999999. If you choose to continue
computing even if the result exceeds 99999999, the value subsequent to 99999999 is
reset to 0.
For example, if the measured value is 4 after the computed result becomes 99999999, it
is counted 0 > 1 > 2 > 3 and becomes 3, not reset to 0.

Some report Math functions (optional)
The DA calculates and processes an hour’s, a day’s or a month’s worth of measurement
or computation data into instantaneous values, averages and/or sums. The results can
be delivered using the communication function.
Reports come in the following three types.
• Hourly report:
Reporting intervals ; Every hour (1:00, 2:00 . . ., 23:00, 24:00)
Computing data item ;An hour’s average, maximum and minimum
An hour’s sum and cumulative sum

• Daily report:
Reporting intervals ; Every other day (preset time)
Computing data item ;A day’s average, maximum and minimum
A day’s sum and cumulative sum
Instantaneous value at the time of making the report
• Monthly report:
Reporting intervals ; Every other month (preset time)
Computing data item ;A month’s average, maximum and minimum
A month’s sum
Instantaneous value at the time of making the report
Putting the hourly, daily and monthly report ON or OFF
You can set reports to be made, separately, every hour, day or month. Daily and monthly
reports may be set to either the standard output format (ON1) or the enhanced output
format (ON2). Note that the enhanced format can only be set for either daily reports or
monthly reports at a time.
Output Formats
Output formats can be set to standard or enhanced format. Hourly reports only have a
standard format.
Standard format: Prints the results of computing configured on a report-channel basis.
Enhanced format:
• Daily reports: Results of computing configured on a report-channel basis plus
information on instantaneous values given at each preset time.
• Monthly reports: Results of computing configured on a report-channel basis plus
information on instantaneous values given simultaneously with the
preset time for making each report.

• Hourly reports:
The DA makes reports every whole hour (1:00, 2:00, . . ., 23:00, 24:00). For
cumulative summation, it resets the cumulative sum at a preset time.
• Daily reports:
The DA makes reports at preset time(s). For cumulative summation, it resets the
cumulative sum at a preset time and day.
• Monthly reports:
The DA makes reports at a preset time of a certain day of the month.

Sum and Cumulative Sum
• Sum : The total sum over an hour for hourly reports, the sum over a day for daily
reports or the sum over a month for monthly reports. The DA resets this value
each time it makes any of these reports.
• Cumulative sum : The total sum up to the preset time to make a report in the case of
hourly reports or the sum up to a preset time of the day to make a
report in the case of daily reports. The DA resets this value at each
preset time or at each preset time of the day for report making. The
DA does not perform cumulative summation for monthly reports.
As an example, the following illustrates the process of summation and cumulative
summation for hourly reports. The example shows a case where the preset reporting

Unit of Summation (SUM UNIT)
Input data, such as the flowrate, with units in /sec, /min, /hour or /day, give results of
computing different from their actual values, when simply summed. This occurs because
the unit of such a data item differs from that of the measurement interval. In that case,
you can take the output after having converted the unit of summation so it matches that
of the input data item applied.

Start/Stop Reporting
Use the event/action functions to define reporting start/stop for the following events:
• Edge action :Define every event as an edge action to start or stop reporting.
• Level action :Use remote, alarm, relay signals as events to start or stop report making.
Reporting starts at the same time that any of these events occur.
Reporting stops when the event clears.
Note
• If you start report making, all reports created up to that point are reset.
• When report making is in progress, you cannot make changes to measurement channels,
measuring ranges or dates and times, nor can you copy range information.
• If any computed data are included in your report making, let computing start first and then
get report making started. If you fail to enable computing, the data in your reports will
become meaningless because no change takes place in the computed data.
• If you want the start of computing and report making enabled at the same time, use the
event/action functions to assign both of these instructions to the same event as actions.
Output Report
Report outputting can be started in communication.

Denotes the point in time a report is created.
• Data items included in the first round of reporting after the report start are fewer
in number than those included in the second and subsequent rounds of report
making.
• If the time when data are sampled coincides with report stop, the DA samples the
data before the report stop. The report created when the DA stops making reports
thus includes those data.
• If the report start coincides with the time the report is created, the start precedes,
thus, no report is created.

Before Operation
• If the time when data are sampled coincides with the report start, the data sampled
at the same time report making started are included in first reporting round. The
report created when the DA stops making reports thus includes those data.
• If you have defined timer and match-time signals as events using the event/action
functions in order to let the report start match the actual reporting, data items
included in the first reporting round will have one data item more than those
included in the second or any subsequent reporting round.

3
Temporary measurement omissions
Measurement may not take place if the DA is loaded beyond its processing capability. If
a measurement omission occurs, the DA compensates for the missing data with the data
it measures immediately after recovering from the measurement omission (the data for
the period with no measurement thus match those acquired immediately after recovering
from the temporary measurement omission).

Power failures during reporting
5
The DA makes a report immediately after it recovers from the power failure and then
stops reporting.
Computing results: The DA computes data measured up to the point immediately
before the power failure.
The time when the power failure occurred.

Handling of faulty data
If data being computed contain any abnormalities, the DA treats the data as summarized
in the following table.

Project function
A Project is a saved group of DAQ 32 Plus software settings with changed conditions.
Using the Project Function it is possible to open software which settings were changed
earlier. In order to do this you must have saved the setting conditions you created earlier
as a Project. The Project Function is useful if you want to observe DA100/DC100/DR
measurement data on only one PC with a number of people. It enables one user to
observe waveforms without influencing other people’s settings. Note that you can only
open a Project after you have closed other DAQ 32 Plus software.
Protection settings
Enables you to protect settings from getting erased. After a password is entered (in the
Project Settings dialogbox), the toolbar will become pink to mark that protection is active.

The Overwrite function
If you open a file from the File list without using the Overwrite function, the file will be
opened, clearing the data earlier edited open file, including its system configurations.
If you use the Overwrite function when opening a file from the File list, the file will be
opened, overwriting the data settings edited so far. System Configurations of the file
edited so far will remain the same. If overwriting results in system inconsistencies, the
entire file may be impossible to open.
Caution when loading a data file saved to a DC100/DR internal floppydisk.
If you open a file from a DC100/DR floppydisk, system info will not be included, and
therefore it may be impossible to open the data using the overwrite function. To prevent
this from happening, do the following:
1 Open the SETUP (Basic) Settings (which belong to the SET (Regular) setting file

4.3 Setting Input Range, Span, and Linear Scaling
Selecting the Range and Type of Input
The following types of input can be selected. The default setting is VOLT.
• SKIP
Measurement, data saving and display (except for page display) will not be carried
out. Measurement, data saving and display will be carried out for the next channel
whose input type is not set to SKIP.
• VOLT (DC voltage)
This input type can be selected from 20mV, 60mV, 200mV, 2V, 6V, 20V and 50V. Refer
to chapter 14 for the measurement range of each setting. The default setting is 2V.
• TC (thermocouple)
This input type can be selected from R, S, B, K, E, J, T, N, W, L, U and KP (KPvsAu7Fe).
Refer to chapter 14 for the measurement range of each setting. The default setting is R.
• RTD (resistance temperature detector)
This input type can be selected from PT1 (Pt100 1mA), PT2 (Pt100 2mA), JPT1 (JPt100
1mA), JPT2 (JPt100 2mA), PT50 (Pt50 2mA), NI1 (Ni100 1mA SAMA), NI2 (Ni100
1mA DIN), NI3 (Ni120 1mA), CU1 (Cu10 GE), CU2 (Cu10 L&N), CU3 (Cu10 WEED),
CU4 (Cu10 BAILEY), PT1S (Pt100 1mA high resolution), PT2S (Pt100 2mA high
resolution), JPT1S (JPt100 1mA high resolution), JPT2S (JPt100 2mA high resolution)
and J263B (J263*B). Refer to chapter 14 for the measurement range of each setting.
The default setting is PT1.
• DI (select LEVL (voltage level) or CONT (contact)
For LEVL, a voltage of less than approx. 2.4 V will be recognized as “0 (OFF)”,
whereas a voltage of approx. 2.4 V or more (max. allowable voltage is up to ±60 VDC)
will be recognized as “1 (ON).”
For CONT, an open, externally connected contact to which no voltage is applied, will
be recognized as “0 (OFF)”, whereas a closed contact will be recognized as “1 (ON).”
The default setting is LEVL.
• mA (DC current, mA input module)
This input can be set only for mA input channels. The measuring range is -20 mA to
20 mA.
Setting the Wiring Method
Select from the following methods:
Single-phase two-wire (1Ph2W)
Single-phase three-wire (1Ph3W; 3-wire input modules only)
Three-phase three-wire 2 Voltage 2 Current (3Ph3W-2I; 3-wire input modules only).
Three-phase three-wire 3 Voltage 3 Current (3Ph3W-3I; 3-wire input module only).
Three-phase four-wire (3Ph4W; 3-wire input modules only).
Setting the Input Range
Select from the following ranges: 250V-0.5A / 250V-5A / 25V-0.5A / 25V-5A.
This setting is common to all channels. Any change to this setting also changes the
settings of the rest of the channels. Impose a voltage or current signal to the input
module within the limits you set here.
Note
If the connection method or input range is changed, alarm setting is turned off.

Note
If you have connected any new strain gauge or changed the measuring range initial balancing
is necessary. (Initialization of settings or reconfiguration of the system also changes the
measuring range back to its default).
•
PULSE (not possible for DR130/231/241)
Select the RATE or GATE range.
DELTA (difference between channels)
Computation can be done only in the same unit. Destination channels should lie
within the first channel No. to the last channel No. range. The number of the reference
channel (REF) should be lower than the number of the destination channels. The
default setting for the reference channel is 01.
The type of input and the measuring range in the destination channel are the same
as for the reference channel. After setting the DELTA (difference between channels),
if you attempted to change the type of input and the measuring range, setting the
difference between channels is released, thereby the type of input and the measuring
range in the destination channel are returned to their original settings, and the span is
returned to its initial value.
RRJC (Remote RJC, available for instruments with the optional MATH function, only)
Reference channel (RJC): Within the setting range of reference channel No.
TC (thermocouple) must be selected as the type of input to the reference channel.
If the channel No. or type of input for the reference channel, or the type of
thermocouple is changed, the alarm function will be turned OFF.
If the type of input for the reference channel or the type of thermocouple is changed,
the RRJC settings will be cleared and the type of input and measuring range for the
reference channel will be set to the one which was in effect before the change was
made. The span will be set to the initial value of the measuring range.

Setting the Span
The measurement range is decided according to the type of input. The left and right
span must lie within the measurement range. However, the span is 0 to 1 for the DI input
type. By setting the span, the setting range for the upper/lower alarm limit of the rate-ofchange is determined. The value on the left side of the SPAN menu shows the left span,
and the value on the right side of the SPAN menu shows the right span.
For the remote RJC, the setting range for span is the same as that for the reference
channel.

4.3 Setting Input Range, Span, and Linear Scaling
Selecting the Input Type for Linear Scaling
The input type can be selected from the following.
• VOLT (DC voltage)
• TC (thermocouple)
• RTD (resistance temperature detector)
• DI (contact)
• mA (DC current)
• AC (Power Monitor
• STRAIN
• PULSE (For pulse, scaling setting is insufficient)
Setting Linear Scaling Values (SCL)
The left scaling and right scaling values are set following the left and right span values
of the span menu. The value on the left side of the SCL menu shows the left scaling
value, and the value on the right side of the SCL menu shows the right scaling value. The
setting ranges from -30000 to 30000.
• The decimal point can be set in any position of the scale as shown below. Set it when
the left scale is set.
“.,” “.,” “.,” “.,” or “.”
• The default settings are 0.00 for the left span and 100.00 for the right span.
Setting the power monitor channel number
This procedure sets the channel number for which you want to show and record the
values of a parameter selected from the effective voltage, effective current, active power,
reactive power, apparent power, frequency, power factor and phase angle which were
calculated using the measured data. Therefore, it does not correlate with the terminals of
an input module.
Setting power monitor parameters
A power monitor module measures the voltage or current through the respective
channels. The values that are shown and saved are not those of the voltage and current
being actually measured through each channel but the values of the parameters you set
here.
A combination of parameters being measured is fixed for each group of channels 1-2, 3-4
and 5-6 within the same module. For example, setting channel 1 to P1 (active power 1)
sets channel 2 to VA1 (apparent power 1). In addition, the configurable parameters being
measured varies depending on the wiring method selected. See the lists on the next
page for more information. The respective mnemonics in the lists should be interpreted
as noted below:
Vi (i=1, 2, 3) : effective voltage
Ii (i=1, 2, 3) : effective current

Precautions in Power Module Measurement
Input the voltage or current being measured at a level between 10% and 100% of the
measuring range. The instrument bases its calculations of all other parameters on the
frequency of V1. Extra care must therefore be taken when setting the input level of
V1. If the input level fails to fall within the given limits, there is no guarantee that the
measurement of any other parameters will be reliable.

• When setting alarm values in continuous channels, use the decimal point as follows:
The decimal point of an alarm value when the continuous channels have different measuring
ranges should be in the position determined by the individual measuring range. If the
decimal point is outside the measuring range, an error occurs. For example, if channels
with measuring ranges 20 mV and 2 V, and a type T thermocouple channel, are all set to an
alarm value of 10000, then the alarm values in the respective channels are as follows:
10.000 mV in the 20 mV measuring range channel
1.0000 V in 2 V measuring range channel
1000.0°C in the type T thermocouple channel
• A type T thermocouple has a measuring range from –200.0 to 400.0°C, so an error results.
• If you make below changes, channel alarm values will also change automatically:
• Recording span.
• Linear scaling settings.
• Power monitor channel wiring and input range.

SPAN menu (recording span). Zones can be set in 1mm steps and cannot exceed the
recording range (i.e. 250mm). The left position setting ranges from 0 to 245mm. Right
position setting ranges from 5 to 250mm. The minimum width of a zone is 5mm. No
decimal points. Default settings: 0mm for the left position, 250mm for the right position.
If the instrument is equipped with the optional Math function, or if it has a pulse module
or a FDD (DR232/DR242) attached, this setting can also be made for computation
channels A01 to A60.

4.6 Recording-related Settings (DR Only)
Partially Expanded Recording (PARTIAL)
This setting specifies whether to carry out partially expanded recording, and if so, which
percentage of the recording span will be compressed and the corresponding boundary
value.
If the instrument is equipped with the optional computation function or floppydisk drive,
this setting can also be made for computation channels A01 to A60.
Selecting Partial Recording ON/OFF
ON: Partial recording will be carried out;
OFF: Partial recording will not be carried out.
Specifying the Compressed Part and Boundary Value
• RATE : This setting specifies which percentage (1 to 99%) of the full recording span
will be compressed. The default value is 50%.
• Boundary value: This setting specifies the boundary value which corresponds to the
previous set compressed part. The setting lies within the recording span, but when
linear scaling is being used, the setting lies within the left/right scale range. The
default value is 0.
Note
If boundary values are to be set for succeeding channels, the decimal point is handled as
below.
If succeeding channels are set, the decimal point position of boundary values when the
measurement range for each channel setting is different, is that determined for each
corresponding range. As a result, it exceeds the measurable range, an error occurs.
For example, if channels whose measurement ranges are 20 mV, 2 V, and type T thermocouple
are set and the boundary value is set to 10000, the following applies:
The boundary value of the channel whose measurement range is 20 mV: 10.000 mV;
The boundary value of the channel whose measurement range is 2 V: 1.0000 V; and
The boundary value of the channel whose measurement range is type T thermocouple:
1000.0 °C
As the range of type T thermocouple is –200.0 to 400.0 °C, an error occurs for this channel.
Notes on Partially Expanded Recording
• Partial recording cannot be carried out if the input type of the computation channels is
SKIP or DI or if the computation channels are OFF.
• Partially expanded settings will be automatically canceled when either of the following
changes occur.
• the input type has been changed;
• the measurement range has been changed;
• the recording span has been changed;
• linear scaling settings have been changed;
• the reference channel for difference between channels has been changed.
Interpolation (INTERPOL)
This setting can be set for each channel individually. If the instrument is equipped with
the optional computation function or floppydisk drive, this setting can also be made for
computation channels A01 to A60. The default setting is OFF.
OFF: no interpolation will be carried out.
ON: interpolation will be carried out according to the priority of recording colors. The
priority of recording colors is black > purple > reddish purple > navy blue > red > blue >
brown > green > orange > yellowish green.

4.12 Copying Channel Settings
Absolute and relativeposition settings for DELTA, RRJC
When copying DELTA and RRJC channels, it is necessary to determine the relation to
reference channels.
• Absolute position
The reference channel of the copy destination doesn’t change.
For example, if the reference channel of Ch 005 is Ch 002, and you would copy Ch
005 settings to Ch 007, the reference channel of Ch 007 will remain Ch002.
However, if you are copying between units, the reference channel of the copy
destination will change.
For example, if the reference channel of Ch 005 is Ch 002, and Ch 002 settings are
TC, Type R, and you would copy Ch 005 settings to Ch 107, the reference channel of
Ch 107 will become Ch 102. Copying is, in this case, only possible if Ch 102, like Ch
002, is set to TC, Type R, and in addition, the scale must be set OFF.
• Relative position
The relative positions of channels and relative channels set in DELTA or RRJC, will
be maintained when copied. Therefore the reference channel of copy destination and
copy base will differ.
For example, if the reference channel of Ch 005 is Ch 002, and Ch 002 settings are
TC, Type R, and you would copy Ch 005 settings to Ch 009, the reference channel
of Ch 009 will become Ch 002. Copying is, in this case, only possible if Ch 009, like
Ch 002, is set to TC, Type R. It is advisable to let the copying include the reference
channel.

• PAUSE :
In the case of edge action, writing is suspended at the generation of
an event. In the case of level action, by setting the alarm, remote,
relay or internal switch to the event, writing is suspended at the
detection of an event and resumes at the resetting of the event (see
the following figure). Setting the timer, match time or manual function
key to the event repeats suspension and resumption of data writing
at the generation of each event.
• CP_FDD : All files in the built-in RAM disk are copied on a floppydisk. Whether
to cancel files after copying or not depends on the setting in the MEM
SET of the SET UP menu. Copying after a conversion to ASCII

• None: Displayed only when the /M3 option is installed. Use this mode when saving only report data or periodic files. The entire built-in RAM disk is used for saving these files. If there are files saved on the built-in RAM disk, you cannot
change the operation from None to Single or Repeat or visa versa.
• Single: Data for only one file are written and then the writing operation is terminated.
• Repeat: After writing data for one file is completed, the next file is created and writing
starts. When the built-in RAM disk becomes full, the writing operation is terminated. However, if the WRITE MEMORY setting is DIV, when the built-
in RAM disk becomes full, the file with the oldest date and time is deleted and new data items can also be continued to be written by setting FILE ROTATE to ON in the SETUP (Basic) mode.
Use of Trigger (WRITE TRIG)
Writing can be set to be started when an event (trigger) is generated.
• Trigger:Writing starts at the generation of an event (trigger) using the event/action function (trigger mode).
• Free: Writing starts when the Start key is pressed.

The same as the measuring period. Measured/computed data are
saved without thinning-out.
• 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 , 6, 10, 12, 15 , 20 , 30 seconds, or, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 10, 30, or 60 minutes:
Writing is done with the set period.
However, only those values which are multiples of the measuring period
can be selected.
• LOGIC : Only effective if event/action is set to action DATA_WR. Every time
an event is generated, the data item for 1 scan (1 for each channel) is
written.
• If the computation channel is used, missing computation measurements may occur
depending on the number of computation expressions or measuring period. If the
computation measurement missing status is displayed, make the measuring period
longer or decrease the computation expressions.
• When the measuring period is changed, the writing period will not equal the measuring
period or its integral multiples, and is subsequently adjusted to equate with the
measuring period.

Built-in RAM Disk Usage (WRITE MEMORY)
• Select the built-in RAM disk usage from the following:
• LENGTH: Determines file capacity by specifying the number of data items per ch.
• DIV2, DIV4, DIV8, or DIV16: Use the RAM disk by dividing the disk area into 2, 4, 8
or 16 parts. If the memory capacity is 4 MB, 2 cannot be used.
• If a file is saved in the built-in RAM disk, the usage of the built-in RAM disk cannot be
changed. For this purpose, initialize the RAM disk or change the setting after deleting
all the files. In that case, necessary files must be saved on a floppydisk.
Writing Data Length (WRITE LENGTH)
• If WRITE MEMORY is set to LENGTH, set the number of data items to be written per
channel, selecting from the following: 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 1k,
2k, 3k, 4k, 5k, 10k, 20k, 30k, 40k, 50k, or 100k
• However, a data length exceeding a file size of 1 MB cannot be selected depending
on the number of channels.
• After starting writing, even if the writing is stopped before the specified data length is
reached, the file capacity is taken by the area for the specified data length.
Note
When using the computation channel, do not write measured/computed data in an application
where the measurement interval is shorter than 0.5 sec, the writing interval is set to INTVL, or
the data length is shorter than 50, if:
• the writing action is in the REPEAT mode.
• writing starts using the event/action mode.
Pretrigger (WRITE PRETRIG)
• If WRITE TRIG is set to TRIGGER, the data before the trigger (event) generation can
be saved in part of the set file. Setting is done as a percentage of the file capacity in
10% increments.

• If a pretrigger is used (except 0%), it is necessary to set the writing start trigger
(WR_TRIG) to the action in the event/action function.
Data Format
The measured/computed data are saved in the binary format.
Data Capacity
The data capacity is determined by the following formula:
Measured data: 2 bytes/data item; Computed data: 4 bytes/data item.
• Stand-alone model: Header 256 + 64 x (number of measuring channels + number
of computing channels) bytes. Data capacity = 256 + 64 x (number of measuring
channels + number of computing channels) + (number of measuring channels x 2 +
number of computing channels x 4 + 6) x data length.
• Expandable model: Header 576 + 64 x (number of measuring channels + number
of computing channels) bytes. Data capacity = 576 + 64 x (number of measuring
channels + number of computing channels) + (number of measuring channels x 2 +
number of computing channels x 4 + 6) x data length.

each preset time or at each preset time of the day for report making.
The instrument does not perform cumulative summation for monthly
reports.
Unit of Summation (Sum Unit)
Input data items like flow rates, that have a unit in /sec, /min, /hour or /day, give Math
results that differ from their actual values when simply summed. This occurs because the
unit of such a data item differs from that of the measurement interval.
In such cases, take the output after having converted the Sum Unit so it matches that of

Displaying/recording in case of computation error
Used to determine whether +OVER or -OVER be displayed/saved in case of computation
error.
Time axis scale for TLOG SUM
For TLOG.SUM of time series, data is added at each measurement interval. However,
in the case of an input having unit of /s, /min or /h like flow rate, the computation result
will differ from the actual value, if addition of data is carried out. In this case, setting
TLOG TIME SCALE according to the unit of the input will cause the data measured at
measurement intervals to be processed according to the unit of the input.
For instance, if the measurement interval is 2s and input value is 100 m3/min, the
computation result will be 30000 after the elapse of one minute, since 100 is added
every 2 seconds. Setting TLOG TIME SCALE to /min will cause the measured data to be
multiplied by 2s/60s at each measurement interval, thus making the result close to the
actual input value.
If this function is set to OFF, simple addition of data will be carried out.

DARWIN Hardware Configurator
If the result of a separate calculation of TLOG.PSUM (XXXX) exceeds
99999999, the instrument goes into an overflow.
• ROTATE : If the result of a separate calculation of TLOG.PSUM (XXXX) exceeds
99999999, the instrument resets the value subsequent to 99999999 to 0
and continues computing. For example, if the measured data subsequent
to 99999999 which has been reached is 3, the computed result becomes 2
by counting 0, 1 and 2.

• It is possible to open several data files simultaneously.
• The amount of files that can be opened simultaneously depends on the memory size and
free harddisk space of your PC.
• It is recommended to load data files, to your harddisk using a floppydisk.
• Data files must have “DAT”, “DAS”, “Y**”, “BFD”, or “DAQ” extensions to be opened. The
extension for report files must be “RBI.” File info is displayed if you select File > Open.
• DARWIN acquired files can be loaded, even if they have other extensions then above.
• When data are internally saved to a DC100 or DR floppydisk during a power failure, no data
will be saved during the period of the power failure.
• If cursors are set for points within a power failure period, no channel values will be
displayed. No measurement data will be displayed in the Cursor value dialog box, and
no computation results will be displayed in the computation result dialog box. Only data
numbers and time will be displayed.
• When displaying a data file with data collected during a power failure waveform display time
values and digital time values may differ. In such a case, the digital values show the correct
time.
• If the selected file contains no data, Start Time and End in the File Information dialogbox
(Information > About Document) will be the time initialized for your PC.
Displaying data as they are being recorded
1 Click the Current Data button from the Historical Viewer toolbar.
Data currently recorded with Logger software will get displayed.
2 To renew the recording screen to get the latest recorded data click the Current
Data button again.
Note
• The Current Data button is only active if Logger data are being recorded.
• Do not display it when starting Viewer from the Start menu. Data acquisition and saving will
not execute correctly.
Viewing file info
To view information on the active data file which waveform is being displayed, select
Information > About Document, to open below File Information window.
You may change the print title here. The title will be displayed in the Print setup dialog
box (File > Print Preview), where you can also set a print title.

Note
• The range of the data you wish to convert, indicated in each xxx Conversion dialog box, is
automatically set to the range specified by cursor A and B. If the range is not specified by
the cursors, or if the cursors have been deleted, the first data point is automatically set to 0,
the final to the last recorded data point minus 1.
• The file extension of the conversed file is automatically changed to the following format
names, to distinguish it from the original file: Excel conversions (possible for version 8.0
(Excel97) or higher) get the extension “xls”, ACSII files “txt”, and Lotus (possible for version 2.0
or higher) files get the extension “wj2.”
• For Lotus 1-2-3 and Excel there is a limit to the data that can be read. When the memory of
your PC is not sufficient, data may not be read even though the data limit is not exceeded.
• Files with converted formats are saved to the same directory as the original.
• Do not select external media like floppy disk to save data.
• Do not select save data in a root directory.
• Make sure there is enough memory before saving data.

Calibrating the Transmission Output Module
(DA, DC only)
Calibration Method
The following two methods may be used for calibration:
• Calibrating while checking the values with instruments such as a digital multimeter.
• Calibrating by using a previously determined value.
Note
When calibrating with a previously determined value, the DA100 or DC100 may not be able to
recognize the transmission output module depending on which calibration values are set.
Procedure
Calibrate while Confirming the Output Value
Connect the transmission output terminal to be calibrated to a DMM which satisfies the
specifications below.
Specification

Files with “daq”, “bfd”, “y**”, “dat”, and “das” extensions can be divided into multiple files.
The output file name will automatically get extension “daq.”
Files can be divided in three different ways (division types):
• Division Point
The original file is divided into multiple files by creating intervals “per Day” or “per
Hour.” For the “per Day” interval setting, an additional “Fixed Time of Day” division is
possible.
• Interval Length
The original file is divided into multiple files with a fixed data count or time count used
as interval.
• Single Fixed
A fixed file part is selected between certain data numbers or between a certain time
span to create a single new file.
Note
The last file of files divided with Division Point or Interval Length will be shorter if the data count
does not fit exactly.

• For Lotus 1-2-3 and Excel there is a limit to the data that can be read. When the memory of
your PC is not sufficient, data may not be read even though the data limit is not exceeded.
• Files with converted formats are saved to the same directory as the original.
• Do not select external media like floppy disk to save data.
• Do not save data in a root directory.
• Make sure there is enough memory before saving data.
• It may take time to abort the Convert settings.

10.5 Restructuring Measurement Data Files
The “Restruct” function enables you to restructure data files by both Merging and Dividing
them simultaneously. Files can be merged into a new file and divided into multiple files
with new conditions.
Only files with a daq extension can be restructured.
For the output file name the extension will automatically be set to “daq.” A follow-up
number will be added behind the original file name for distinction.
For example: file name_0000.daq (0000 being the follow-up number).
1 Click the Restruct tab to display the setting window for file restructuring.
Selecting files to merge
2 To specify the original files you want to merge, first click the Select… button in
the Input frame. In the dialog box that opens select the directory with the files you
want to merge.
3 If there are different measurement data groups in the directory Group tabs will be
displayed. Files within the same group can be merged. Click the Desired Group
tab.
4 Select the files to be merged by dragging the numbers’ column on the left side of
the file list.
Note
• If you don’t select any specific files, all the files within the group will be merged.
• To undo a selection, drag again.
Selecting the directory to save files to
5 In the Output frame select the directory to save the divided files to. Click the
Select button and choose a directory in the dialog box.
Note
• Do not select external media like floppy disk to save data.
• Do not save data in a root directory.
• Make sure there is enough memory before saving data.

Problem
The DA100/DC100/DR//DS does not turn ON.
The DA100’s status lamp does not turn ON.
The DA100’s status lamp is blinking at
one-second intervals.
The DA100’s status lamp is blinking at an interval
other than one-second interval.
A connected subunit is not recognized.
A connected module is not recognized.
The measured value is not correct.
Cannot communicate properly.
Communication is established, but fails to
operate.
2
Probable Cause/Corrective Action
The power supply is out of the ratings.
Use an appropriate power supply.
The communication module is not installed properly.
Install the communication module properly.
Internal error has occurred. Restart the DA100.
3
The subunit is turned OFF. Turn the subunit ON.
The extension cable is not connected properly to the subunit.
Connect the extension cable properly.
The module is not connected properly.
Connect the module properly.
The input signal does not satisfy the specifications. Check the input
specifications.
The measurement mode is not correct. Change to an appropriate
measurement mode.
The measurement range, span, and scale settings are not correct.
Change the settings to the correct values.
Noise is affecting the measurement. Take measures to cut the noise.
The reference junction compensation is not correct.
Set the reference junction compensation correctly.
The ambient temperature is outside the allowed range.
Set the ambient temperature within the allowed range.
The PC is in the power-saving or standby mode. Do not use the powersaving or standby mode.
Using a screen saver. Do not use a screen saver.
Communication settings are not correct. Check the switch settings on the
communication module and check using the Software Configurator.
The DA100, DC100, or DR was turned OFF or the cable was
disconnected while the communication was in progress.
If the DA100, DC100, or DR is turned OFF or the network is disconnected
while transferring setup data over the Ethernet, the timeout takes
approximately three minutes.
If the DA100, DC100, or DR is turned OFF or the network is disconnected
while receiving data with the logger software, the timeout can take several
hours.
