This lets you apply secondary conversions to your data; most of these
options are specialized for aerial respirometry. You can compute VO2 VCO2, or VH2O, using several basic conversion algorithms
(more comprehensive options for respirometry are available in the LabAnalyst
analysis program). Here is an example showing calcualtion of oxygen consumption,
with flow rate obtained from another channel:
This example also shows use of the response correction (Z-transformation).
You have the option of showing conversions during acquisition but saving
the raw data only, or of saving the converted data.
conversions designed for commonly-used instruments can be selected from
the labeled buttons. You can create your own customized buttons and
conversion factors using the custom
conversions option in the EDIT menu.
using a DataTaker, a button labeled "°C (Cu-Cn thermocouple)"
is available (in the default mode). Clicking this button instructs
the DataTaker to return a compensated temperature (in degrees C), instead
of voltage. Note that if another kind of input device is used with
this option, erroneous data will be returned.
