How You Can Use BTU Measurements to Document Energy Efficiency

BTUs are a widely-used metric for energy production and in solar HVAC system financing. BTU data can represent significant savings. In our latest White Paper, CAS DataLoggers outlines the definition, measurement and benefits of BTUs.

How to Cut Energy Costs Using a Datalogger

If you’re a facilities technician or engineer, you can use a data logger (aka data acquisition system) to identify energy savings areas. These devices can measure and record many different values including current, voltage etc. In this latest White Paper, CAS DataLoggers outlines the basics of how datalogger users can monitor energy usage as part of an energy audit.

How to Select the Ideal Portable DAQ System

Portable data acquisition systems are convenient solutions used to log data and monitor temperature and other values in industrial and laboratory applications. In this latest CAS DataLoggers White Paper, we examine the key factors to consider when deciding on a DAQ system for your specific application.

Choosing a Water Level Logger: 5 Things You Should Know

While water level loggers have become the data collection instrument of choice for an increasing number of hydrologists, the product choices available today can make it difficult to determine which product is right. This report from CAS DataLoggers can help you choose the right products for your needs.

PID Control with ADwin

One of the most common automatic control methods is the Proportional-plus-Integral-and-Derivative (PID) controller. In this white paper CAS DataLoggers shows how the architecture of ADwin data acquisition and control systems makes them well-suited for PID applications.

Measuring Voltage and Current Using a Data Logger

A common data logging application is measuring voltage or current flowing into or out of a piece of equipment. These measurements can be broadly classified into two groups: AC and DC. At CAS DataLoggers we've put together this brief guide covering the basics of voltage and current measurement.

SDI-12: The Technology Behind Smart Sensors

SDI-12 has become the environmental standard of choice for environmental monitoring applications. At CAS DataLoggers we’ve put together this brief introduction to the SDI-12 standard highlighting the advantages your business or organization can realize from using SDI-12 data loggers and sensors.

The 6 Most Important Parts of a Temperature Monitoring System

You may know that you need a temperature monitoring system but aren’t sure how to purchase or use one. At CAS DataLoggers we’ve put together this basic tutorial covering the 6 parts to a typical Temperature Monitoring System so you can choose which is best for your application.

Comparison of Thermal Buffer Effectiveness

Abstract: Experimental data was collected to examine the behavior of RTD probes in various thermal buffers in refrigerator and freezer applications. From the warm-up time vs. temperature curves, a thermal time constant was determined by fitting an exponential line to the data. Also, the behavior of the buffers during typical operation as the refrigeration compressor cycled on and off was observed. Using this data, recommendations on buffers for refrigerators and freezers are made.

Basic Techniques for Accurate Resistance Measurement

At CAS DataLoggers we often receive calls from users working in resistance measurement applications, for example using string pots to measure movement, measuring thermistors/RTDs for temperature, measuring the resistance on test samples, and many more applications. In this white paper, we’ll cover a few simple ways you can reduce error and improve accuracy at the low, mid- and high resistance ranges.
