Naming a Logger

Data loggers in a WQData LIVE project can have custom names assigned. Loggers initially receive a default name that includes the logger type, telemetry type and body tag number. Name changes are entered in the Basic Remote Device Configuration menu on WQData LIVE.

To configure a name change:

  1. Navigate to ADMIN | Settings at the top of the project dashboard.

ADMIN | Settings menu.


  1. Click on the Device Remote Configuration tab. Under this tab is a list of the sites within the project. Click on the site and the logger to be updated.

Configure the logger name under the Device Remote Configuration tab.


  1. Scroll down to the X2 Settings and input the desired logger name into the space provided in the Device Name field.

Test Logger has been entered as the new Device Name.


  1. Once the new Device Name is entered, click SAVE at the bottom. The name change will appear in the Command Queue and will be applied during the next transmission or the next time power is cycled on the logger.

New Logger Name has been listed in the Command Queue.
