Temperature rate of change

Post by kemosabian »

We are using a TC-08 and Picolog 6 software to test the temperature rise of our system. We are interested in the point where the system reaches thermal equilibrium and the temperature readings all plateau.

The standards we apply to our equipment design define the equilibrium point as a rate of change of less than 1C/hour.

I had hoped that we could use the math channel to perform a derivative function with respect to time but this doesn't appear to be possible.

Is it? And if so how is it achieved?

Thanks in advance!

Hi

There is currently not an option in the maths channels of PicoLog 6 to do derivative on data.
I have raised this feature request with our development team

I would second the request for a derivative function in Picolog. I would also suggest the addition of averaging to cover all channels as an option, along with a selectable sample count to use for the averaging.

Another vote to include a temperature rate of change (derivative) feature in the math channel. Thanks!

And another vote for a rate of change function
