    Start and stop a log session with triggers

    Configure the Data Logging control to start and stop logging during a log session based on triggers. A trigger is a condition-based formula, such as EngineTemp>5000.

    When you configure a start trigger, the Data Logging control waits after a log session begins for the start trigger to evaluate to TRUE before logging.

    You can also configure a stop trigger. When you configure a stop trigger, the Data Logging control stops logging when the stop trigger evaluates to TRUE.

    Use the Start Trigger and Stop Trigger pages.
    Capture custom information about a log session

    Capture specific information from an operator at the start of a log session using properties. Any captured properties are added as metadata to all log files generated during the log session.

    For example, you can prompt an operator to enter information, such as the their name, the unit under test, and the test set point before running a log session.

    Use the Properties page.
