When working with dataTaker’s DT8x line of intelligent data logging products, many users can both save time and increase the accessibility of their data with a simple file conversion now offered on the manufacturer’s website. All dataTaker DT8x data loggers create local data files either internally or when copying to a USB stick with the ‘.dbd’ extension. The files use a proprietary binary format to maximize the amount of data that can be stored for a given memory size. Often it’s desirable to convert the files over to the more common ‘.csv’ (Comma Separated Value) extension so they may be easily accessible in Excel, Access, and many other common programs allowing manipulation of the data in a more user friendly format. This utility works for all of the dataTaker DT8x data logger series, including the DT80, DT85, DT80G, DT85G, DT82E, DT82EM, and DT82I. Learn more….
