Add internal lithium battery voltage to a data table


davide.canone Jan 24, 2019 01:43 AM

Hi, I would like to add the internal lithium battery voltage to a data table. Is there any instruction like "Battery" to measure the voltage of the internal battery of the datalogger or any other way to obtain such measurement.

Thank you,

Davide

The variables in the status table are accessible as "status.variablename".  For example, under data logger/station status there are three tabs.  The lithium battery voltage is shown under the summary tab as Lithium Battery (two words) and also under the Status Table as LithiumBattery (one word).  The one word version is the variable name.  To access the data use the full name for this variable, status.lithiumbattery.

The code in my program is:

Public PTemp, Lith_Batt

'Main Program
BeginProg
  Lith_Batt = status.lithiumbattery
 Scan (1,Sec,0,0)
  PanelTemp (PTemp,60)
  'Enter other measurement instructions
  'Call Output Tables
  'Example:
 NextScan
EndProg
