2.4 Removing & Installing Rubber Boot
The data logger ships with an impact resistant rubber boot pre-installed.
OMEGA recommends leaving the protective rubber boot installed, but it can be
removed for convenience. When removing the rubber boot be sure to do so with
a support surface not more than 1 foot beneath the device to protect in the case of
an accidental drop.
To remove the device from the rubber boot first power off the device and
disconnect all external connections including power, analog & digital inputs,
and communication interfaces. Next while holding the device with one hand
gripping the top of the device, use the other hand to pry one of the bottom
corners of the rubber boot outward and downward until the corner of the device
pops free from the boot. Repeat for the other bottom corner of the device. With
both of the bottom corners free of the boot, continue to tilt the bottom of device
upward and pull it outward until it is free from the boot. Installation is the
reverse of removal.

2.6 Sensor Connections
This section shows how to connect sensors to your analog input terminals.
There are 8 or 16 analog input channels (depending on the model) each having
one positive terminal and one negative terminal clearly shown on the input
label. Depending on the type of sensor being connected 2 input channels may
be required. Input tables and figures are shown for each type of input. Bridged
based sensors (strain gages, load cells and mV output pressure transducers)
require excitation voltage which is provided on channels 1 and 2, 3 and 4,
9 and 10, 11 and 12 only. See tables 2-3 and 2-4 for wiring information.

Standalone Operation
3.5 Operating Modes
The OM-DAQXL has four modes of operation. They are described in the
following section.
3.5.1 Free-Running
This mode is used mainly for set up. The device measures and displays all
configured analog and digital inputs. No data is logged and all settings can be
edited. While in the free-running mode the data logging mode area of the status
bar is blank.
3.5.2 Armed Mode
The OM-DAQXL will enter the Armed mode when a start trigger is configured
and the Log Data button is pressed. The data logging mode indicator in the
status bar will show an orange dot and the toolbar icon will also be an orange
color with the word Armed shown. When the configured trigger condition is
met, the device will automatically enter the logging mode of operation.
Pressing the Log Data button while in the armed mode will cause a fly-out menu
to appear. You can either skip trigger detection and enter the logging mode
automatically by pressing the red Log Data button or revert to the free running
mode by pressing the white Free running button.
3.5.3 Logging Mode
In the logging the OM-DAQXL will save data from all configured channels to
the memory location specified in the Data Session Settings. This location must
be specified prior to entering the logging mode. A maximum of 1 million data
points will be logged to a file after which a new log file will be started. When
in the logging mode new channels cannot be configured and trigger and data
session settings cannot be changed.
The OM-DAQXL features multiple options for logging data. It comes with 1GB
of internal flash memory standard in addition to both an SD card slot and a USB
host port allowing up to 64GB memory capacities to be used for storing user
data.
3.5.4 Data Review Mode
The data review mode allows you to review previously logged data or view
previously captured screenshots. The Stored Files button on the toolbar gives
access to all previously stored data for the currently logged in user. Pressing the
Stored Files button will bring you to the directories screen as shown below.
