Data Logger Embraces USB

Possibly a first for data loggers, the dataTaker DT80 data logger accepts a USB memory stick to either transfer data to a PC or send programs to the logger. The standalone unit stores up to five million data points in secure, non-volatile memory. Its universal analog-input channels can automatically select a measurement range based on signal level. For monitoring chores in noisy environments, the channels include isolation and over-voltage protection. The data logger supports most measurement and sensor types including temperature, dc voltage, 4 mA to 20 mA loops, resistance, bridges, strain gauges, and frequency. Switchable excitation and triggering are available on all channels and the unit's digital channels provide counter inputs up to 100 kHz, state input or state output. Other features include RS-232, 10 Base-T Ethernet, USB-host/memory interfaces, TCP/IP support, backlit LCD and keypad, and a battery for back-up or remote operation up to 21 days. Additionally, the DT80 comes with Delogger software and LabVIEW instrument drivers; ActiveX controls are also available. Single-unit price starts at less than $2,300.
