Warnings and Error Messages
Various warnings and error messages are returned by the dataTaker which report command and runtime errors, and warnings of potential errors.
The return of messages is controlled by the Messages Switch Command as follows
/M Enable the return of error and warning messages (Default)
The default setting is /M, and is automatically selected when the dataTaker is powered up, is hardware reset or executes a RESET command.
During an Unload operation (See Section III - Returning Data From Memory), error reporting is disabled until the Unload is completed. In a network, errors in remote dataTakers are reported back to the host computer.
If you are using DeTransfer, the format of the warnings and error messages returned to the host is determined by the setting of the Units Text Switch as follows
if the Units Text Switch is enabled (/U) the error number and a description is returned as follows
E12-channel list error
if the Units Text Switch is disabled (/u) the error number only is returned as follows
If you are using DeLogger, then you do not need to worry about the format of error messages. DeLogger displayes most error messages from the logger in the Text View as shown below
and will log error messages into an error log file id enabled (see your DeLogger Users Manual).
The list the dataTaker error messages is shown overleaf.
These error messages are detailed in the DT50, DT500 and DT600 Series Users Manual supplied with you data logger, and includes an explanation of the possible causes for each error message.
