Logging Data with a USB Data Acquisition Device


Using LabVIEW and a USB data acquisition device, you can build a data logger to acquire, log, and save signal data. In this video, you will learn how to customize log file settings and how to save the data as different file types, such as TXT or technical data management streaming (TDMS), by either creating new files or overwriting or appending existing files. Additionally, you will see how to open and view the log files in LabVIEW natively or in Microsoft Excel using the TDMS plug-in included with LabVIEW.
