Issue Details

I want to use VeriStand to record data for a second or two before my Trigger. Is this possible and what do I do? How can I then analyze the data?


You can use the UI Manager to Log Data.  Under the Configuration section you will see "Trigger Mappings." There you will find options for Pre-Triggering, which will allow you to log data for a user specified amount of time before your trigger. You can log more than one data file simultaneously, which could allow you to have overlapping sets of data. 

In order to run analysis on the data, you can run a command line script in order to use an external program, such as LabVIEW or Microsoft Excel for post processing.
