Issue Details

I have a couple of channels of data with different sampling rates and timing data that I'm trying to log into one COMTRADE file. When I open the file to look at it, all of the data appears to have the same t0 and dt. What can I do about this?

Solution

In the COMTRADE Write Data (Waveform) VI, the timing data (t0 and dt) is taken from the first waveform in the array and that is applied to the rest of the data. If you want two different timing sources, you have to write to two separate files.
