CAS Provides Affordable Data Acquisition and Recording

Novus FieldLogger RTU 8-Channel Data Logger
CHESTERLAND OH—January 9, 2012

CAS DataLoggers has teamed with Novus Automation to provide customers with the newest solution for flexible, affordable data acquisition and supervision. The bestselling Novus FieldLogger RTU 8-Channel Universal Input Data Logger is a microprocessor-based data acquisition and recorder designed to handle any analog input and operates either as an RTU linked to a PC for online recording and supervision, or as a stand-alone data logger with real-time clock and graph capabilities. This low-cost logger is widely used as a Modbus RTU input device as part of a SCADA system to transmit channel data using Modbus protocol. With 8 universal channels accepting different input sensors simultaneously, these high-speed industrial dataloggers have lots of available memory and many connectivity options along with expansion modules and wireless communication accessories.

The datalogger is DIN rail compatible and includes a 35mm rail mounting in an ABS enclosure. Configuration is retained on the logger in non-volatile memory, and configuration and data retrieval are managed using a PC along with the included configuration utility software. The Novus FieldLogger also features an RS485 interface allowing communication up to 1.6 miles (1 Km). For users without a RS485 port on their PC, Novus also manufactures an easy-to-use USB-RS485/RS422 converter, transforming an ordinary USB port into a fully-functional RS485 interface.

The Novus FieldLogger features 8 universal analog inputs supporting several types of thermocouples as well as Pt100, mA, mV and higher voltages by applying external resistor dividers. The logger is also capable of performing mathematical operations in the input channels. Additionally, the FieldLogger has one digital input for remote start/stop and 2 alarm relay channels which can be activated when any channel enters a programmed alarm condition; these relays can also be used as digital outputs. The logger also provides internal cold junction compensation for thermocouples, enabling high-accuracy measurements. Recording at a working temperature of 32 to 130°F (0 to 55°C), the new datalogger also features an internal resolution of 20000 counts, linearity of better than 0.05% of FS, and can scan 8 channels in 0.5s.

FREE FieldChart configuration utility software is included and is downloadable from the manufacturer website. FieldChart is a Windows compatible software which performs the communication and data treatment for the FieldLogger recorder and Novus controllers with RS485. This easy-to-use intuitive system saves users the hassle of previous training. The main module collects data to the PC, displays the data in both digital and graphic formats in batches or in real time, and provides trend and historical views. It can zoom in and out, superimpose or link graphs in one screen, print graphs or lists, and export to spreadsheets or word processors. The practical configurator module performs the setup of the FieldLogger parameters and also allows users to check general status. In addition to its standard use as a Modbus RTU, for online reading and recording (history), the included Microsoft Windows FieldChart software also reads and records a graph for a 10-minute period. Users needing more in-depth data analysis can upgrade to the full FieldChart analysis software to allow the Field Logger to form a complete data acquisition system.

With the power and versatility to handle analog and digital signals at high resolution and speed, the Novus FieldLogger is a cost-effective solution for customers’ data acquisition and temperature recording needs. Check out the Novus Fieldlogger product page here.
