Adept Scientific has released the USB-5104, a four-channel, battery powered, thermocouple data logger from Measurement Computing. The low-cost USB-5104 features an LCD display and can be used for measuring and logging temperature in a variety of applications.
The data logger measures J, K, T, E, R, S, B, or N type thermocouples and can store up to 1.9 million measurements. It also includes high and low alarms and a burst logging mode, allowing the logger to vary sampling intervals based on changing temperature conditions. Start, stop and restart pushbuttons make taking data easy and straightforward.
It is set up via the included software and a USB connection to a PC or Mac. The logger is then deployed and acquires data. The logging duration is dependent upon the selected logging interval and mode. Data can be saved to a variety of formats including .csv for Excel.
The instrument is an accurate, affordable solution for stand-alone thermocouple measurements.
