Online Demo / Manual- Data Logging
You can log the data from the Measuring Blocks screen to a comma-separated *.CSV file. These files can be opened and analyzed with Excel (or most any spreadsheet application) or played back using VC-Scope.
Dual ECUs: For vehicles with dual ECU's (like the Audi R8), data from both ECU's can be logged simultaneously by accessing [31-Engine Other] as shown here:
Export RPM Only when checked will record only RPM from the first field and will not record other fields. Also, this will only record RPM values that are non-zero. This feature can be useful if you are logging to output the file to a spreadsheet or other third party software.
[Stop] discontinues the saving of data to a log file.
[Resume] continues the saving of data to a log file.
The [Marker] function places a sequential number in the file when you click it. This can be helpful for data analysis.
The [Browse] button allows you to specify the location for your logs. By default, Log Files will be placed in the LOGS sub-folder in your PC's VCDS directory.
[Done, Close] closes the log file and exits out of the Log function.
By default, the name of the log file will be the controller number followed by each group number that you are logging. The name can be changed to anything you'd like. If you re-use an existing filename, your new data will be appended to that file.
Switch to Basic Settings is not currently available while logging. However, you can start a log while you're in Basic Settings. If VCDS keeps insisting that it can't open a Log file, you're probably missing the LOGS folder and should re-install VCDS.
