Data Logger Optimized For Solar Or Battery Powered Operation

Jan. 26, 2010

CAS Data Loggers recently announced the new dataTaker DT82E environmental data logger. The DT82E is a robust, stand alone, low power data logger featuring support for SDI-12 sensors, USB memory sticks, 18 bit resolution, extensive communications capabilities and built-in display.

Based on the highly successful dataTaker DT80 line of data loggers, the new DT82E provides an extremely versatile, easy to use solution for a wide range of environmental data logging projects, including agriculture, weather station, hydropower and other outdoor applications where standard AC power may not be available. Rugged design and construction provide reliable operation in extreme weather conditions and the unit can operate on battery or solar power for an extended period of time.

Analog and digital channels, along with high-speed counter inputs, allow the DT82E data logger to easily connect to most sensors and data measurement sources. It can measure temperature, voltage, current, 4-20mA loops, resistance, bridges, strain gauges, frequency, digital and serial devices. The dataTaker DT82E's Dual Channel Isolation allows four 2-wire differential or six common referenced analog inputs to be used in many combinations. Measurements can all be scaled, logged and returned in engineering units or within statistical reporting.
