An affordable, multi-channel data logger with a built-in LCD screen and support for temperature data, as well as current and voltage signals up to 24 V, has been introduced by Adept Scientific. The battery-powered USB-5106 from Measurement Computing features four 16-bit analogue input channels that support temperature, current and voltage inputs.
The built-in LCD screen displays readings, logging status, battery use and memory consumption.
The data loggers have 4 MBit of memory capable of storing up to 1.9 million measurements and a software-selectable burst logging and alarms.
A Linear Scaling Assistant converts raw data to measurement units. The instruments have logger control buttons for manual control of logging, display and event generations
The USB-5106 device includes easy-to-use software for logger set up and data review. Set up is done via a USB connection to a PC or Mac. Data can be exported to a variety of formats including .csv, .txt, or Microsoft Excel.
