Recording Clock Time

I'm looking for a way to add clock time to a service.  IE...depth, clock time, tension, elapsed time....

Any help is appreciated.



For local time, add a LOCTIM sensor to your service:


For UTC time, add a UTCTIM sensor to your service:


New outputs will be generated with the same name and will only plot as Tabular.
The actual value recorded will be time in seconds since 1/1/1970.


Thanks for the help.

when I add the sensor LOCTIM=BASE,ELTIM to the service a "sensor syntax error" is thrown when launching the service.

And when you say the actual value recorded will be in seconds since 1-1-1970, I wont output an .las with HH:MM:SS but rather an accumulation of seconds totaling in the billions?


Use whatever device you have mapped to your ELTIM instead of BASE.

LAS will display time like this: "17 Nov 2014 10:46:35"


Ok, mostly good.  The tabular listing on the log displays the time as HH:mm:ss, but in the las shows the seconds elapsed since 1-1-1970.  Is there any way to easily fix this short of running the .las through excell and correcting this?



Following some more google research on my own, it appears this time format is known as Epoch time.  I've found a utility that will convert these to "human" time.  Should I need to proceed down this route or is there an easier way to have Warrior output in Human time?



Warrior LAS export should be writing out LOCTIM and UTCTIM with the format    dd mmm yyyy hh:mm:ss.  If you are still using Warrior 7, try using ExportEx.exe from your warrior\bin folder.
