CAS DataLoggers
recently provided the intelligent data logger solution for a company owning several bitumen spray trucks used to seal roads and highways. Management wanted to demonstrate their process quality to customers by recording specific information during multiple bitumen spray runs. This data would have to be collected from sensors recording several different parameters including the temperature of the bitumen, the surrounding air, engine RPM, road speed, and more.

Load Cell Monitoring in a Tunnel Jacking Operation

CAS DataLoggers recently provided the dataTaker DT80 datalogging solution for Custom Systems & Controls, Inc., specializing in system design, process control and automation. CSC was contracted by SECAC Tunneling of Baltimore, MD to design and build a flexible monitoring system for their project to excavate a tunnel in Quincy MA, near the Boston area. Workers needed to monitor the tunneling equipment by logging tensions (force) from load cells, hydraulic pressure, and movement of the support structure to document the effectiveness of this innovative process. Workers also needed to view real-time data during operations and to conveniently transfer all data to a PC via a USB flash drive for analysis. Read more on our Construction Applications Notes page.

New Series 3 DT80 Intelligent Universal Input Data Logger

The Latest Version of the Bestselling DT80 Has Arrived

CHESTERLAND OH—September 14, 2011

CAS DataLoggers has partnered with popular manufacturer dataTaker to announce the new and improved Series 3 DT80 Intelligent Universal Input Data Logger, designed for flexibility, accuracy and reliability. This new model offers users even more datalogging features combined with higher-precision measurements. Several improvements have been made upon the successful Series 2 DT80s, inspired directly from the needs and feedback of customers around the world. Designed for a wide variety of applications and focusing on versatility across many different measurement types, the Series 3 DT80 provides an extensive array of communications features making it an ideal solution for real-time data acquisition, remote monitoring and control needs.

The DT80 Series 3 upgrades include improved cold junction compensation using a high-precision RTD sensor accurate to 0.1%, allowing up to 5x more accurate thermocouple measurements. Single ended two wire resistance measurements allowing 3 resistance measurements per input channel have also been added, useful for monitoring sensor cable integrity. Additionally, a 5V terminal is now included to power external devices with a limit of 25mA, extending the DT80’s flexibility even further.

5 to 15 universal analog and 12 digital channels, 4 high-speed counter inputs, phase encoder inputs and programmable serial sensor channels all allow the DT80 dataloggers to connect to most sensors and data measurement sources. Almost any physical value can be scaled and logged including temperature, voltage, current, 4-20mA loops, resistance, strain gauges, frequency, and more. Measurements are made at an 18-bit resolution across a ±30 V input measurement range, and the data logger is expandable up to 300 analog inputs. The DT80 universal data logger can store up to 10 million data points in user-defined memory, featuring independent control of schedule size and mode to log only as long as needed. The DT80 also archives data on alarm event, copying to USB memory and transferring via FTP if needed, providing data directly to the office over the internet or mobile phone network without the need for polling or specific host software.

The Series 3 DT80 stand-alone, low power data loggers feature a built-in display and are renowned for their robust construction–all dataTaker devices are built to last, capable of withstanding harsh environments and years of constant use. Their extensive communications capabilities include RS232 with modem support, USB, Ethernet and USB memory stick ports enabling connection to the DT80 locally, remotely or over the Internet. With support for multiple SDI-12 sensor networks, Modbus for SCADA systems, FTP and Web interface, and 12V regulated output to power sensors, the DT80 is ready to be rolled out into environmental, industrial and many other types of monitoring projects.

Additionally, free user-friendly dEX software is included with the Series 3 DT80, featuring an intuitive graphical interface that allows quick configuration of the data logger and displays real-time sensor measurements, calculations and diagnostic information, all in an easy-to-use Windows Explorer style interface. Users can also view their real-time data in mimics, trend charts, or tables, and retrieve historical data for analysis. To get users up and running, dEX comes built-in with no applications to install, runs directly from a web browser, and can be accessed either locally or remotely anywhere that a TCP/IP connection is available including worldwide over the Internet. Users can view dEX using any of the logger’s built-in communications ports including Ethernet, USB and RS-232. Check out the Series 3 DT80 product page here.
