Fig. 442 Export Settings – Overview and export options for a *.csv-file

In PLAY mode, the user can export the recorded data into the following formats:

  • *.csv-file

  • *.txt-file

  • *.dmd-file

  • *.mdf4-file

  • *.mat‑file

  • *.xlsx-file

  • *.rsp (rpc III)-file

  • *.wav-file

  • *.dat-file (DIADEM)

  • *.nt-file (DynaWorks)

  • *.h5-file

The user can select the channels to be exported in the channel list displayed in the Export Settings (Fig. 442).

Export Active Recorder Region or Between Cursors

The user has the possibility to only export the active recorder region of the selected recorder or the region between the cursors. Depending on whether the cursors are activated one of the following options to export (see Fig. 443) can be seen. This option is available for all file formats.

Export active recorder region or between cursors

Note

These options are only available if the export menu is not enlarged and opened to full size. If the menu is enlarged to full size or these options are deactivated the whole recorded data will be exported.

Export Options for a *.csv-file

If *.csv is selected as format, the user has the following additional options (see Fig. 444):

Export Options for a \*.csv-file

Fig. 444 Export Options for a *.csv-file

  • Choose between Decimal separator ‘.’ and ‘,’

  • Choose between CSV delimiter ‘,’ and ‘;’

  • Select the decimal precision from 1 to 20 digits; the decimals will be rounded to the selected precision

  • Selection of Separate header row for units will write the units in a separate row below the channel names

  • Select Use absolute timestamps or export relative timestamps

  • Waveform: select if the waveform data shall be exported.

    Fill data gaps: select if data gaps shall be filled up when exporting channels with different sample rates. For channels with a lower sample rate, the samples will be repeated until the next sample is available.

  • Statistics: select which of the statistics parameters shall be exported

Export Options for a *.txt-file

If *.txt is selected as format, the user has the following additional options (see Fig. 445):

Export Options for a \*.txt-file

  • Choose between Decimal separator ‘.’ and ‘,’

  • Select the decimal precision from 1 to 20 digits; the decimals will be rounded to the selected precision.

  • Selection of Separate header row for units will write the units in a separate row below the channel names

  • Select Use absolute timestamps or export relative timestamps

  • Waveform: select if the waveform data shall be exported.

    Fill data gaps: select if data gaps shall be filled up when exporting channels with different sample rates. For channels with a lower sample rate, the samples will be repeated until the next sample is available.

  • Statistics: select which of the statistics parameters shall be exported

  • Select if the Header fields shall be exported to the file

  • Select if the Event List shall be exported to the file

  • Select if the Recording start and the Recording duration shall be exported to the file

  • Select if the Channel List shall be exported to the file

Export options for a *.dmd-file

If *.dmd is selected as format there are no additional options and all channels will be exported. This is a useful export tool for data reduction to export only the active recorder region or between the cursorss. For details see Export Active Recorder Region or Between Cursors.

Export options for a *.mdf4-file

If *.mdf4 is selected as format, the user has the following additional options (see Fig. 446):

Export options for a \*.mdf4-file

Fig. 446 Export options for a *.mdf4-file

  • Select if the data shall be exported to the compressed mdf4.1 or the uncompressed mdf4.0 format

  • Events and Header data will be exported per default. The check boxes are only displayed for information purpose

  • Select if Waveform data and/ or Statistics data shall be exported

Export options for a *.mat-file

If *.mat is selected as format, the user has the following additional options (see Fig. 447):

Export options for a \*.mat-file

Fig. 447 Export options for a *.mat-file

  • Choose between Compressed and Normal export

  • The exported file format is a 7.3 MAT-file

  • Compressed: The *.mat-file will be compressed during export. Thus, the Compressed export will take more time than the Normal export

  • Normal: The *.mat-file will not be compressed during export. Thus, the Normal export will be quicker than the Compressed export, but the resulting *.mat-file is larger

  • Events and Header data will be exported per default. The check boxes are only displayed for information purpose

  • Select if Waveform data and/ or Statistics data shall be exported

Export options for a *.Excel (xlsx)-file

If Excel is selected as format, the user has the following additional options (see Fig. 448):

Export options for an Excel-file

Fig. 448 Export options for an Excel-file

  • Selection of Separate header row for units will write the units a separate row below the channel names

  • Select Use absolute timestamps or export relative timestamps

  • Waveform: select if the waveform data shall be exported.

    Fill data gaps: select if data gaps shall be filled up when exporting channels with different sample rates. For channels with a lower sample rate, the samples will be repeated until the next sample is available.

  • Select if a new spreadsheet should be created per file (for multi-file recordings) or per event (for triggered recordings). Otherwise select no split.

Note

As the number of lines on one Excel spreadsheet is limited to 1048576 (220) the data will be written to a new spreadsheet if this limit is reached.

Export Options for a *.rsp (rpc III)-file

Export options for a \*.rsp-file

There are currently no options to select.

Export Options for a *.wav-file

Export options for a \*.wav-file

Selection of PCM or Float Format

  • PCM: 16-bit integer format

  • Float: 32-bit floating point format

The PCM format results in an export file, which is half the size of the float format file but is also less accurate.

Export Options for a *.dat-file (DIADEM)

Export options for a \*.dat-file

Fig. 451 Export options for a *.dat-file

DIADEM-Export only supports the export of Waveform data but no support of Statistics (Reduced) data. The format only supports the export of scalar channels such as analog channels and formulas.

When exporting data, three separate fiels will be created:

  • *.dat-file containing header information

  • *.R32-file containing the data

  • *.R64-file containing the timestamps

Export Options for a *.nt-file (DynaWorks)

Export options for a \*.nt-file

Fig. 452 Export options for a *.nt-file

This export generates the DynaWorks Neutral File Format. This export only supports the export of Waveform data but no support of Statistics (Reduced) data.

Each channel is exported into a separate export file. Additional header are required for some databases.

Detailed information about this export format can be found in the DynaWorks export manual which is available on the DEWETRON CCC-portal (https://ccc.dewetron.com/).

Export Options for a *.h5-file

This export generates a file in HDF5 file format.

Export options for a \*.h5-file

Fig. 453 Export options for a *.h5-file

Choose if the file should be exported in a compressed format. This export supports the export of Waveform data and includes metadata but does not support the export of Statistics (Reduced) data.
