Measurement Computing Corporation has announced the addition of two battery powered temperature dataloggers to its growing datalogger line. These battery powered dataloggers are offered in two models: the USB-501 for remote temperature logging, and the USB-502 for remote temperature and relative humidity logging.
Both log up to 16,382 temperature measurements in the -35 to +80 ºC (-31 to +176 ºF) range. The USB-502 additionally supports up to16,382 additional relative humidity measurements over the full 0 to 100 percent range. Rates for both dataloggers can be set from 10-second to 12-hour intervals.
The loggers plug directly into a standard PC or laptop USB port for setup and data download.
The included USB-500 Series Data Logging Application software supports both products. This user-friendly, intuitive software is used initially to configure the loggers, program alarm thresholds, logging rates, start times, and measurement units. When the loggers are retrieved from the field, the software provides simple one-click access to download, display, and export the data.
The USB-501 and USB-502 dataloggers are packaged in a sturdy plastic shell with a cap and seal, and are about the size of a thumb. Dust/moisture protection is supported to IP67 standards. A long-life, replaceable lithium battery is included that will power the logger up to a full year. Each logger comes with a small mounting bracket that can be used in the field to hold the logger while it is collecting data. Logger status is indicated by flashing red/green and amber LED's.
