Variable list not loadable

Postby Hustler » Fri Nov 29, 2019 3:53 pm

Dash3 Manual:
<Load variable information>
<This allows you to load a new set of variable list from a VAR file to variable tree.>

How do I load a new variable list with the Dash3 configuration software?
The menu is missing the option as indicated in the help.
Where does the Dash3 configuration software get a list of variables?

Spitballing here, but are you using v10 analysis software? I recently learned that v8.5 should be used with older devices since the v10 software pulls the variable list directly from the data file. I don't know if that also applies to the DASH-3.

Actually, I may have mis-stated this. From this link: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=4082
...on the older DL1 MK2 it was a "pain" as the sensor in volts->units conversion was done on the PC, so you had to keeping loading in different variable files...On later DL1s (MK3 onwards, sold from about 2008) the conversion from volts->units is done on the actual hardware, so the PC software doesn't typically need to "know" about the different configurations. This makes the situation much simpler.
