Remote Monitoring & Diagnostics of Serial Devices
LAVA Computer's latest addition supports diagnostics of serial devices such as PLCs, ECRs (Electronic Cash Registers), and other RS-232 equipment. Providing a bi-directional 'pass-through' data route between two serial devices, the LAVA DataTap-IP taps into serial data streams to port this data over IP, and additionally to a remote server, client, or COM port.
Temp Loggers log data to CompactFlash cards
Measurement Computing Corporation has announced two new temperature loggers. The USB-5201 logs data from J, K, R, S, T, N, E, & B type thermocouples whereas the USB-5203 logs data from the same thermocouple types, as well as RTDs, thermistors, and semiconductor temperature sensors.
Low-cost Temperature and Humidity Devices
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.
14-bit analog input USB module fills a gap
Measurement Computing Corporation has announced a low-cost USB analog input device. The USB-1408FS provides 8 single-ended or 4 differential analog inputs, 14-bit resolution in differential mode, 13-bit resolution in single-ended mode, 8 software selectable input ranges, with sample rates up to 48 kilosamples per second.
Portable Digital Sound Level Meters
Utilizing a standard 9V battery as the power source, the Model 735 and 732A from B&K are hand-held sound level meters and incorporate an easy to read, back-lit LED display for clear reading in the darkest environments.
Touch Screen Flat Panel Computer
Based on the VIA Eden 400 MHz CPU, the AHM-6084 fanless industrial panel computer from Datasound Laboratories boasts a resistive touchscreen, 256MB DRAM and a 40GB 2.5 inch hard drive.
800MHz Fanless Thin Client is Ideal for Harsh Environments
The fanless operation of the eBox-III 800MHz industrial thin client from Datasound Laboratories (DSL), makes it ideal for harsh environments where no moving parts are required. Also, its rugged enclosure provides protection against shock and vibration.
EMC Test System Gets WiFi Control
Schaffner has updated its Modula EMC test system. It can now be remotely controlled from distances up to 30m using an optional WiFi enabled PDA or PC with wireless LAN.
S/W allows PC's to display power measurements
A software package that allows RF and microwave engineers to use the Bird Electronics 5010T RF Thruline Power Sensor in conjunction with a PC has been made available by Aspen Electronics.
Comms Testers Improved
For field service, troubleshooting, maintenance and test of a wide range of communications equipment and installations, Aspen Electronics has launched a new generation of Bird Technologies' EX series Site Analyzer antenna and cabling diagnostic tools.
