On basic settings, check or click the box limits for "ACC x, y, z". This will take you to the tab "Limits" if it doesn't happen. A new table will become available.

When you are satisfied with the settings, click on the button "Write basic settings" at the bottom of the page. By the default, the data taking should start immediately (if the checkbox is ticked).
