Fast logging - CODESYS library

Description
A library that simplifies fast logging down to 1ms.
Target device: X2 / BoX2 control series, with embedded CODESYS runtime.


Update information
This library simplifies the solution to achieve 1ms logging.
Up to 10 REALs can be logged at a rate as low as 1ms. The library creates a CSV file that can be written to USB, SD or internally (to the FTP area of the X2/BoX2 Control).

The filename is dynamic, based on a FB input and the time and date. The file will grow indefinitely, but Excel imposes a limit of 2^20 rows, which is about 17 minutes at 1ms. Other text editors (Notepad++ possibly) may allow more.

The library file (*.compiled-library) can be installed to the CODESYS software on your PC and the FB be accessed as any block, please follow guidelines and description.
