PicoLog data loggers now support Raspberry Pi SBCs with software upgrade
04 July 2019
Specialist in low cost instrumentation and PC-based, USB oscilloscopes & data loggers, Pico has announced its first ever fully supported software for Raspberry Pi, the popular & inexpensive single-board computer (SBC) – PicoLog 6.
Optimised and tested on the new Raspberry Pi 4, as well as the current 3B and 3B+ on Raspbian Stretch, the PicoLog 6 data logging software provides a visual, easy-to-use interface allowing engineers to quickly set up simple or complex acquisitions and record, view and analyse data. It's the same fully functioning software that runs on Windows, macOS and Linux.
Coupled with a Raspberry Pi, this new PicoLog 6 package expands the flexibility and opens the door for Pico's data loggers to be used in new and different ways:
• Rather than connecting your Pico data logger to a PC or laptop via USB, you can now connect the logger directly to the Pi and remove the keyboard, mouse and video to make an inexpensive stand-alone logger storing its captured data locally on a Pi SD-Card
• Furthermore, connecting your Pi by WiFi or Ethernet internet-enables your Pico logger – which you can then access remotely using an open-source VNC server and viewer freely available
• ...and better still, utilising the Power over Ethernet (PoE) capability on the Raspberry Pi 3B+, paired with the PoE PiHAT, not only eliminates the need for an external power supply and powered USB hub, it also internet-enables your logger at the same time!
