Convert Run to Txt


Convert Run to Txt program can be used extract data from .RUN files and save it into different file formats.

  • It can export run data into following formats.
    • .CSV (comma separated value) format
    • Matab .m file
    • Matlab .mat file
  • You can also extract raw GPS and raw Serial data from the .RUN file and save them into two separate files in binary format (.bin).




To Convert a RUN file:

1. Select the file format you wish to export to.

For the .CSV file format, enter the character that you would like to use as the data value separator, in to the Separator edit box.
(It is recommended to keep the default separator - comma (,))

2. Select the sample frequency. The amount of data read from the .RUN file per second is depened on this value.

For a example if you select 10Hz, ten data samples are read from RUN file during a second and written to the CSV file. If you select 100Hz, hundred samples are read during a second.
Higher frequency values results large CSV files and conversion may be little bit slower. However it inputs more data into the converted file.
Note: Sample frequency has no effect on the GPS and Serial binary data to be extracted. (Described in step 5 and 6)

3. Press Browse button next to the Input file path to open the File Open dialog box. Then select the .RUN file you need to convert.

4. Press Browse button next to the Output file path to open the Save as dialog. Give a Name and location for the new .CSV file

5. To extract raw GPS data (Optional)

Select Save GPS Data check box to activate the Browse button and click on it to open the Save as dialog. Give a name and a location for the GPS binary file. The GPS binary file will contain all the data that is output from the GPS module including and processed positional/velocity messages as well as the raw ranging data etc. This information is only available from Mk2 DL1 (with the black connector) or DL2s. This file is binary and only normally required for specialist applications.

6. To extract raw Serial data (Optional)

Select Save Serial Data check box to activate Browse button and click on it to open the Save as dialog. Give a name and a location for the Serial binary file. This file contains all the data that was logged by the DL1 or DL2 assuming that it was configured to not expect RT format data. If the DL1 or DL2 was configured to expect standard RT on it's serial port then this file will be empty (0 bytes).

7. Loading a variable file (Optional)

Click on the Load Variables button, If you want to use a different variable file, instead of the default vairable file installed with this application.

8. Press Start button to start conversion.
Progress bars visually indicate the amount of data processed whilst 'Status'' gives you the progress as a percentage.

9. Stop button allows you to stop the conversion at any moment, while it is in progress. Created file(s) will have data only up to that point.
