I am trying to log a few channels using the logging function within the Stimulus Profile Editor - Step in VeriStand 2009. I have configured the logging to be triggered on startup. However all I got were empty TDMS files with only channel descriptions but no actual data values. Any ideas?
When you select the On Startup logging trigger, a Duration field appears. The default value is zero seconds (perhaps not a great default). This effectively means the log file never logs. Try setting this value to a larger number. You can even just use Inf if you don't want a limited logging duration. In that case it will log as long as the profile runs. The other limiter is the File Size Limit field. You can also set that to Inf if you don't want to limit the log file by its size.
