Using TEDS Sensors in Your Channel Specification

Last Modified: June 28, 2021

You can configure your project channels with TEDS by selecting one or more channels and clicking the Scan for TEDS button.

  1. Click Scan project for TEDS in the toolbar. FlexLogger scans all channels in the project for any connected TEDS sensors.
    The following table lists the possible results of the Scan project for TEDS action.

    TEDS sensor compatible with the channel is connected Channel is configured using data read from the TEDS scan. The TEDS sensor properties overwrite previously configured channels. Channel details are prefixed with "TEDS".
    No TEDS sensor is connected No changes occur. Channels retain their previous configuration.
    TEDS sensor is connected, but a device or FlexLogger does not support a sensor class read from TEDS Error appears on the channels. Resolve errors to run test.
    TEDS sensor is connected, but the device does not support a sensor property read from TEDS Error appears on the channels. Resolve errors to run test.
    TEDS sensor is connected, but data off the EEPROM is corrupted Error appears on the channels. Replace the TEDS sensor.
  2. Hover over the channel and click Scan for TEDS . FlexLogger scans all selected channels for any connected TEDS sensors.

    You can also multi-select channels and scan selected channels for TEDS in the channel configuration dialog.

  3. Compare channel configuration properties against the TEDS data, if necessary.
    1. Hover over the channel row to see the Configure gear and click the gear to open the channel configuration dialog. In the channel configuration dialog, channels you have already scanned for TEDS with connected TEDS sensors display "TEDS" after the channel name. To see the timestamp of the last scan, hover over the Scan for TEDS button.
    2. In the channel configuration dialog, click the Edit icon on the Sensor Properties field to view the contents of the sensor EEPROM from the last scan.

    Pasting a TEDS sensor channel configuration into a new channel does not automatically populate Sensor Properties with EEPROM contents. To ensure that the EEPROM contents are imported into the new channel, click the Scan for TEDS button.
