  2. To access the logs directory, enter %temp%\movisens in the Windows Explorer address line; for SensorManager version 1.15.0 or newer enter %homepath%\movisens\log.
  3. There are two files we require - *_SensorManager.log and sensor_log.txt.

# Screenshot of Measurement opened in UnisensViewer

Please take a screenshot with the UnisensViewer:

  1. Open the data set with the UnisensViewer
  2. Make shure that the signal stateOfCharge.bin is visible.
  3. Please scale the X-axis first with the button:
    Scale X Axis
