xllogger Excel* Add-in

xllogger is built around Excel* because this is the standard graphing and calculation package used by schools and colleges throughout the world. Because data is captured directly into Excel* there is no need to export and move data from one package to another - unlike other datalogging systems. xllogger has incorporated into Excel* all the requirements of standard datalogging software, but with the additional advantage of access to all the calculating power of Excel* for better data analysis. Installation is a simple procedure on any standalone PC or laptop, or on any network. Once installed, xllogger is always available from within Excel*. Sensors are auto-recognised when plugged in and automatically change range and sensitivity when needed without any input from the user.

 

Key features:
xllogger uses a series of toolbars to enable you to navigate the software easily. Main and analysis toolbar


 

Autolog: use this for continuous logging where sample time and duration are not important.
Logging settings: choose duration of activity, sample time, plus graph titles etc.
Snapshot: use for taking individual readings when time is not a variable, e.g. in Ohms Law or environmental fieldwork. A unique feature of Snapshot is the ability to label each measurement individually.
Timing settings: for use with light gates for recording timing in dynamics experiments. Pre-set options makes this a simple task for pupils.
Repeat: Carry out a repeat of the same experiment and average the results.
Work in progress: allows experiments to be saved as files and then sent to other users - who can then open the file, click Repeat and add further data series.
Display options: there are a range of display options such as full screen and large digital display.
Graph formatting toolbar provides all you need to manipulate your graphs.
