Downloading and Playing Back Data from Rapidlogger to USB Drive

This tech note describes the process to download job files from Rapidloggger System to a USB flash drive.

  1. Get a USB Flash disk that has empty space and does not have many files. Make sure that it has been formatted on a Windows PC and not for Linux etc. It should also not be encrypted or password protected.
  2. Files on the Rapidlogger System are named by the date they are created on. So for data from February 23, 2010, you would use the file named “23Feb10.txt”. The data on the file is readable in to the RapidVu utility and excel.
