ekanderson Posted January 22, 2009 Share Posted January 22, 2009 I want to delay ALL data collection from a LJ U3 without doing a U3 reset until SysTime is a certain value As far as I can determine, I'm in a Catch22 situation WITHOUT doing a LJ reset. Starting DFexpress (even with a waituntil in AutoStart seq.) immediately starts LJ data acquisition. Thought about having a sequence do System.SafeMode =1, but the way I read the doc on that, it will stop the sequence you are running, thus never being able to leave safe mode from within the seq. The reason that I don't want to do the LJ reset, as I've mentioned, is that I want to retain 2 of the counter's values. Checked DF help for stop, start, etc. Nothing seems applicable. LJ help only has "Stop" in data streaming section, which I am not doing. Also thought about starting a startup *.ctl and have it load the data collection *.ctl, but as far as I could determine, that isn't possible. It isn't clear (too me) whether DF could chain/shell to a DOS *.bat file such as DaqFactoryExpress.exe mydata.ctl The way I read the shell doc, it creates a concurrent process and what I need would be and exit and restart of DF.
