Thank you very much ben and mstjohn for the reply.
We have SNAP-PAC-R2 , with several different sensors connected, we wanted to reliably get data every time ( it will be running 24 hrs continuously) . Our file size will grow bigger and bigger with increment in time (anywhere near 250Mb+). So I am looking for a way to effectively save or get data from PAC. I wanted SD card as backup and wanted to save data to a PC which can be directly connected to the PAC as I understand now that ftp is the only way.
I do have few more questions:
- Currently I save data in a (.txt) file, and data keeps on appending to it with time stamps( in the same file). can I create a directory or different file on SD card for each day or on FTP server on a PC. As in communication handle there is no way to append time stamps to the file, where as if I use script I keep getting error that file handle is open .
I use , open OutgoingCommunication(handle), SetCommunicationHandleValue and CloseCommunication(handle) in script, and define communication handle as “initialize on strategy run”.
2.Will saving data in binary can reduce the file size? how can I save it in binary? will adding .bin extension works?
