Learn what's new in each release of FlexLogger.

2021 R4 (October 2021)

  • Support for PXIe-1090.
  • Support for low-cost USB DAQ devices. Refer to Supported Hardware for specific model support information.
  • Increase measurement accuracy by compensating for internal offsets with the auto zero setting. In your Channel Specification, click the drop-down menu ( ) for your module and select Auto Zero to configure the setting. Refer to Supported Hardware to learn which devices support auto zero.
  • Stop all signals and measurements on a CAN/LIN port so it can be used by other software. In your Channel Specification, check Disable for the port you want to disable. FlexLogger closes all CAN/LIN connections.
  • (Preview Feature) Test ECUs using XNET databases that rely on the CAN Calibration Protocol (CCP). In your Channel Specification, click Add measurements for the port you want to configure and specify the protocol.

2021 R3 (July 2021)

  • Support for PXI and PXIe Digital I/O Modules. Refer to Supported Hardware for specific model support information.
  • Better performance for large systems, including faster response times for viewing live data.
  • Higher maximum data throughput for high speed systems.
  • Locate FlexLogger project files and read elapsed test times with the Python-based FlexLogger Automation API.
  • Log the synchronization status of devices synchronized across an Ethernet network.

2021 R2 (April 2021)

2021 R1 (December 2020)

  • Support for USB X Series devices. Refer to Supported Hardware for specific model support information.
  • Support for PXIe X Series counters.
  • Drive DAQ output signals non-deterministically by mapping to another channel.
  • Use test properties as placeholders in file names and locations.
  • Automate FlexLogger with the Python-based FlexLogger Automation API.
  • Onboard counter support for CompactDAQ chassis.
  • Analyze logged data with the TDMS viewer using built-in analysis functions, including arithmetic and fast Fourier transform (FFT) analyses.

2020 R4 (September 2020)

  • Support for PXIe X Series devices. Refer Supported Hardware for specific model support information.
  • Multi-PXIe chassis synchronization support using the high-density trigger ports. Refer to Supported Hardware for specific model support information.
  • Create variable channels to act as static integer values.
  • Use anti-aliased downsampling to acquire from DSA modules at 100 Hz.
  • Use Python to interact with FlexLogger (compatible with 2020 R3 and 2020 R4). Refer to the NI FlexLogger Examples for Python repository on GitHub for more information.
  • (Preview Feature) Onboard counter support for CompactDAQ chassis.
  • (Preview Feature) Publish tags and files to SystemLink Cloud.

2020 R3 (June 2020)

  • Better shunt calibration feedback, including calculated values displayed in channel details and error messaging.
  • Scan for TEDS sensors at the project level.
  • Support for resistance measurements. Refer to Supported Hardware for specific model support information.
  • Support for LabVIEW 2020 in the FlexLogger Plugin Development Kit 1.3.
  • (Preview Feature) Publish tags and files to a connected SystemLink Server. This preview features requires a separate license for SystemLink Server.

2020 R2 (April 2020)

  • Configure multiple I/O channels simultaneously, including alarm configuration.
  • Apply shunt calibration to multiple channels simultaneously.
  • Added read-only channel support for TEDS sensors.
  • Alarm and event information logged to test TDMS file.
  • Support for digital input plugin channels in the FlexLogger Plugin Development Kit 1.2.
