How can I activate the logging session when I need to?

If a data logger was configured to start logging data in the future, the on-board activation button can be used to activate the logging session in the field.

  1. With SiteView, on the configuration dialog of the logger, set the start time to a future date that it will never reach. Click “OK” button to save new settings to the logger.
  2. The logger is now in start delay mode. When you need to activate the logger, press and hold the Activation button on the logger until you see the status LED flashed once. Release the button, now the logger just started logging data.

Note: Once the logger has already started logging, the activation button is used to reset the logger. It is used to restart the micro-controller if the logger has a communication problem.
