Transfer of trend data with Panel 800
Hi everybody !
I have a Panel 800 connected with a TCP/IP connexion.
I would like to transfer my trend data on a computer. How have I proceed ? In the help menu of Panel Builder 800, it's written "Trend files can be opened directly in Excel for statistical calculations. See separate manual for Panel Tools". Where is the manual ?
Or if I connect a USB key on the panel, it is possible to transfer data ?
Thanks a lot
PS : I'm using Panel Builder 800 version 5

Here is the file transfer overview - from Panel Tools.
You have to configure the communication line to the panel first (from Options...) and then to copy the necessary files to your PC. Easiest and faster way is to connect the Panel File transfer (PC) to the panel by means of Ethernet. Serial connection is also working, but in both cases that is a separate connection, not TCP/IP, used for connection of AC800M to the Panel800.
I tried to copy (file transfer) the trends files from the panel to the PC, using File transfer option to Panel Builder. Then you can open the file and/or export it to Excel.
From my point of view, the process is not very user friendly, sometimes file transfer is not stable. May be there is other better solution
