TS-DataPro offers the Possibility to generate custom CSV-Files. Once TS-DataPro is active it will add a new row into the CSV-File after each process. The user interface allows the user to configure the appearance and the content of the File freely. Furthermore it is possible to generate more than just one file, if for example a Machine with more than one control channel is present.
The configuration is done in the user interface of TS-DataPro, which you find here:
Service -> Settings-> Data export-> TS-DataPro
To adjust the configuration for a file it is necessary to create a new task first.
After a name for the task was chosen, the new task it is created with a click on "Add new task".
The name of the task is also the name of the CSV-File
The next step is to configure the task, thus the content of the file and also general settings.
The upper area of the user interface contains the general options for this task. The following options can be found there:
Target Path: The directory in which the CSV-Files are put. The path is relative to the "Log" directory on the ToolScope.
In the shown example configuration this will result in the following entire path: ".../Logs/TS-DataPro/Custom CSV 2017-11-06 13.19.10.csv"
Storage interval for new files: Determinates in which interval new files are created
Maximum number of rows: Sets a limit for the file sizes by limiting the number of rows a single file will have. If this number is exceeded, a new file is started.
Add another data source: Add new data source, thus a new column in the CSV-File
In the next step it is necessary to configure the data source and thus the content of this column.
For each column you need to select a data source. The head line of the column can be changed through the "Name of data source" field.
The option "Monitoring window (Index)" defines which monitoring channel is used as data source.
For each column you can select three kinds of data sources:
Parameter: Allows access to certain internal parameters of a monitoring channel. The availability of the parameters depend on the selected monitoring channel ("Monitoring window (Index)").
Data channel: Direct access to the value of the selected data channel. The value will be read at the moment at which we have the event of the falling trigger in the selected monitoring.
Fixed value: Here you can put a fixed string for a column. Furthermore you can also put special variables here to generate dynamic content. More information on those variables you will find in chapter "Variables".
With the option "hidden" it is possible to hide a column in the CSV-File. This can be useful, if this column is used for an intermediate result, which is not important for the final result.
The following parameters can be selected:
The following variables can be put used in the field "Fixed Value".
