New DAQami Advanced Data Logging Application

PR-DAQamiAdept Scientific (Letchworth, Herts) announces the release of DAQami, an advanced data logging application from Measurement Computing Corporation (Norton, Mass) which allows users to quickly and easily acquire, view, and log data from MCC USB DAQ devices.

DAQami delivers the fastest time to measurement for over 40 compatible MCC hardware devices. Once users have installed DAQami and plugged in a DAQ device, they’re able to create an automatic configuration and acquire live data in 5 minutes or less!

Data can be acquired in volts and degrees, as well as custom units with linear scaling. Channels can be viewed on any combination of scalar, strip and block displays. Once data is acquired and logged, DAQami can be used to review the saved data file.
DAQami’s flexible user interface makes it easy to customise display size and location, zoom factor and channel/trace colours. Users can also configure MCC DAQ hardware within the application, selecting sampling rate, start and stop triggers and sample count.

DAQami Highlights:

• Out-of-the-box software to acquire, view and log data
• Configure device, channel and acquisition options
• View analogue input or temperature data on any combination of scalar, strip and block    displays
• Customise display size and location, zoom factor and channel/trace colours
• Export data to a .csv file
• Support for Microsoft® Windows 8/7/Vista®

New low-cost, hand-held data loggers measure temperature, humidity or thermocouples

PR-Image-USB-600-SeriesThe USB-600 Series from Measurement Computing Corporation (Norton, Mass.) are hand-held, battery-powered data loggers with an LCD display that shows real-time readings, graphs of data and current status. Simple push-button controls are used to start and stop logging, review logger settings, determine memory used and view max and min readings. The loggers, which are available in the UK from Adept Scientific (Letchworth, Herts.), also feature LED and audible high and low alarms.

The single-channel USB-601 can collect temperature measurements between -30C and +80C, while the USB-602 can read relative humidity levels as well. The dual-channel USB-603 offers K, J and T type thermocouple measurements and includes two type K thermocouples. Current pricing can be seen here.

With the software supplied with all three models, users can select sampling rate, start time and logging mode, and perform data download and analysis. Over 250,000 readings can be stored, with sampling intervals from 2 seconds to 2 hours.

The user can set up the logger and view downloaded data by plugging the module into a USB port on a PC. Data can then be graphed, printed and exported to Excel® or other programs via a .csv file.

New wireless temperature logging DAQ from Measurement Computing

 

Measurement Computing Corporation (Norton, MA), the value leader in data acquisition, has announced the release of the WiFi-501-TP temperature data logging sensor.

Available from Adept Scientific (Letchworth, Herts), the WiFi-501-TP is a WiFi-based temperature data logging sensor with thermistor probe which measures the temperature of the environment in which the probe is situated. Data is transmitted wirelessly via a WiFi network to a PC and is viewed using the software included. It can then be placed anywhere within range of the network. If the sensor temporarily loses connectivity with the network, it will log readings until it is able to communicate again with the PC application (max 120 days at 10 second sample interval).

This WiFi-501-TP is a battery-powered device and, when configured using typical sampling periods (e.g. once every 60 seconds), the sensor will operate for over one year. The battery can be recharged via a PC or USB +5 V wall adapter.

The software included will allow set-up, data logging and data review. Set-up features will include sensor name, °C/°F, sample rate and high/low alarms. Once configured, historic data can be viewed via the graphing tool or exported to Excel.

Product highlights:

• Measure temperature and humidity while transferring data via WiFi to a PC
• Built-in data display
• Included thermistor probe
• Measurement range from -40°C to +125°C (-40°F to +257°F)
• 802.11b-compliant
• Sensor memory stores data even if WiFi is temporarily disconnected
• Rechargeable internal battery
• Configurable high/low alarms
• Software included for set-up, logging and data review.
