The wireless nodes all have 2 Mbytes of datalogging memory.  This 2 Mbytes is organized into 8,191 ‘pages’ of memory, each page holds 132 data points.  The maximum number of data points that can be held in memory can be calculated as follows: 8,191 pages x 132 data points/page = 1,081,212 total data points.

Now the question arises, ‘how long can a node datalog before its memory is full?’. The answer is that it varies depending on how many channels are being sampled and what sampling rate has been set. Here are two examples:

Let’s set a V-Link-LXRS so that channel 1 is active with a datalogging sampling rate of 2048 samples per second and we launch continuous datalogging.  Our calculation would be:

• 1 channel x 2,048 samples per second = 2,048 data points per second
• 1,081,212 data points / 2,048 data points per second = 527 seconds
• 527 seconds / 60 seconds per minute = ~9 minutes to fill the memory

Let’s set a G-Link-LXRS so that channels 1, 2 and 3 are active with a datalogging sampling rate of 32 samples per second and we launch continuous datalogging.  Our calculation would be:

• 3 channels x 32 samples per second = 96 data points per second
• 1,081,212 data points / 96 data points per second = 11,262 seconds
• 11,262 seconds / 60 seconds per minute = ~187 minutes to fill the memory
