Measure, Message, and Monitor With Wireless Data Logging Systems
CHESTERLAND OH—July 26, 2011
CAS Dataloggers has partnered with T&D to announce the new RTR-500 Series Wireless Data Logging Systems, ideal for use in transportation and anywhere traditional LAN networks are not available. With the RTR-500GSM Data Collector, these low-cost remote monitoring solutions can automatically send data and alarms via cellular phone networks for remote or in-vehicle data collection. Users can now process and manage critical data anytime from anywhere using the built-in wireless communication capability. These rugged systems consist of data collectors and data loggers for use across many applications, including transportation and warehousing, food processing and storage, industrial processing and manufacturing, and agriculture.
The RTR-500 Series offers rugged, compact, weatherproof loggers designed for operation in harsh environments with models for temperature, humidity, voltage, current and event counting. The loggers communicate with a variety of data collectors including handheld, USB, Ethernet and cellular versions. Additionally, these data loggers offer alarming plus email, FTP and web interfaces to view and save current readings and recorded data, present them in graph display or export to other programs. Software is included with the base units across the 500 Series free of charge.
These wireless data loggers act as remote units to measure and record data and are registered to the base stations which wirelessly collect their current readings at set intervals and monitor them for measurement alarm warnings. Remote units provide temperature measurement ranges as broad as the RTR-505TC model’s -199°C to 1700°C (-326°F to 3092°F) and offer support for many different thermocouple and RTD sensor types. Full downloads of captured recordings only take about 2 minutes. The wireless data logger units can transmit data up to 500 ft. away from their base stations when unobstructed indoors, and this range can be extended by simply registering an RTR-500 base station as a Repeater to relay communication between a remote unit and base unit. The 500 series data loggers are available in 9 different models to match specific measurement items and ranges, and an array of optional sensors is also offered to further enhance the series’ capabilities.
The flexible 500 Series also features more specialized data collectors such as the RTR-500GSM Mobile Base Station with built-in GSM Modem, equipped with GSM cellular phone network capabilities. The station uses SMS messaging to send warning report mails, guaranteeing that owners always stay on top of critical changes. The RTR-500GSM can also periodically and automatically download the data from its remote units. The RTR-500DC Handheld Data Collector travels with its owner to wirelessly collect and check data from remote units, displaying readings in graph on the built-in display without need for a nearby PC.
