Portable Temperature and Humidity Recorder from CAS DataLoggers
Companies in the food and agriculture industry need a convenient yet accurate means of protecting their perishable inventories by monitoring and alarming product temperatures and humidity. Now CAS DataLoggers has partnered with Grant to offer the portable, durable solution with the high-performance, portable SQ2020 Squirrel Data Logger featuring a fully-configurable large graphical LCD display and updated design. Stand-alone operation away from the office in a product pallet or storage room is simple and convenient, allowing businesses to help prevent their products from spoilage and damage. These data loggers are now available at an affordable price.
It’s easy to setup continual monitoring for your products using these versatile and durable data loggers which allow for a wide range of different measurements. Additionally, the Squirrel loggers’ flexibility and accessible design enable hassle-free operation. These sophisticated data loggers offer an ideal out-of-the-box solution available in 3 configurations: the SQ2020-1F8 logger, the high-speed SQ2020-2F8 logger, and the SQ2020-2F8 WiFi wireless logger.
Squirrel SQ2020 data loggers are portable data collection systems compatible with many different types of thermocouple and humidity sensors, and can also measure ambient temperature. Squirrel data loggers offer a high-quality, highly accurate (0.05%) battery-powered solution measuring a broad range of physical values—not only temperature and humidity, but also current, voltage and resistance for use in voltage optimization and more. Each SQ2020 data logger features twin processors, 8 differential (16 single-ended) analog inputs, and 8 digital event inputs. 4 alarm/relay outputs notify users whenever food or environmental temperatures suddenly go out of specification.
Designed specifically for portable data logging applications where stand-alone operation is a must, Squirrel data loggers are famous for their lightweight yet robust construction and reliability. The latest generation of Squirrel 2020 loggers features multiple 24-bit ADCs for incredibly precise measurements. Squirrels are able to fulfill many temperature data logging needs, even demanding applications requiring up to 100 readings per second on two channels (SQ2020 2F8 model). The datalogger is powered from internal cells or an external power supply connection.
Additionally, these temperature and humidity data loggers include an intuitive and easy-to-read graphical LCD screen offering clear and simple navigation, fully configurable via the integrated four-button keypad so users can access most of the Squirrel’s core functionality without needing a PC or laptop connection. Logger status, setup and real-time graphical data in meter mode are at users’ fingertips, giving reliable results within minutes of activation. For extended logging, Squirrel data loggers can store up to 14 million points of internal data storage and also utilize a removable MMC/SD card. The Squirrel series is fully compatible with Grant’s extensive range of temperature probes and with other commercially available sensors for measuring a wide variety of physical parameters.
Squirrel dataloggers also include FREE SquirrelView setup and download software for a PC. SquirrelView’s user-friendly, spreadsheet style interface allows quick configuration of the data logger, speedy download of data and direct export of stored data to a PC application including Excel™. The optional SquirrelView Plus software offers additional benefits such as graphical data analysis and advanced reporting options.
