EL-USB-2-LCD USB Temperature/Humidity Data Logger
Humidity, Temperature and Dew Point Data Logger with LCD
This standalone data logger measures and stores up to 16,382 relative humidity and 16,382 temperature readings over 0 to 100%RH and -35 to +80°C (-31 to +176°F) measurement ranges. The user can easily set up the logging rate and start-time, and download the stored data by plugging the data logger into a PC's USb port and running the purpose designed software under Windows 2000, XP and Vista (32-bit). Relative humidity, temperature and dew point (the temperature at which water vapor present in the air begins to condense) data can then be graphed, printed and exported to other applications. The Lascar data logger is supplied complete with a long-life lithium battery, which can typically allow logging for a year. Status indication is via flashing red and green LEDs. The logger is protected against ingree from water and dust to IP67 standard when the plastic cap and seal are fitted. The high contrast LCD can show a variety of temperature and humidity information.
Display and Status Functions
The EL-USB-2-LCD features a high contrast LCD and two bi-colour LEDs. The LCD shows logged temperature and humidity values using seven segment numbers, along with annunicators. The LCD can also show information regarding the logging status.
The LCD shows six different recorded readings, which can be cycled through using the built-in push button. The most recent logged value, maximum logged value and minimum logged value can be displayed seperately for humidity and temperature. In addition, logging and alarm status is shown using two high intensity LEDs.
LED Flashing Modes
EL-USB-2-LCD features 2 bi-colour LEDs; one LEd reprents temperature measurement, the other represents RH. Each is clearly marked on the logger. To save power, the status indication alternates between the two channels every 10 seconds. First you will see the status of the temperature logging and 10 seconds later you will see the status of the RH logging and so on.

* This specifies the overall error in the logged readings, for relative humidity measurements between 20 and 80%RH.
** This specified the overall error in the calculated dew point, for relative humidity measurements between 40 and 100%RH at 25°C.
*** Depending on sample rate, ambient temperature and use of alarms LEDs.
The core of Lascar's data logging solution is the free software supplied with each data logger. Using a wizard format to guide the user through setup of the data logger and subsequent download of collected data, the software puts the 'easy' into EasyLog.

How to setup an EL-USB data logger
Downloading data demonstration
- Collects and stores data from at least 500 data loggers
- View downloaded data with general trend and summary screens
- Allows full or quick set-up of compatible EasyLog USB data loggers
- Touch screen interface for navigation of menus
- 2.8” TFT display
- Stored data can be transferred to a PC/Mac via micro USB cable
- Use Lascar’s EasyLog USB software on a PC to graph data and export to Excel
- Integral rechargeable lithium battery provides up to 8 hours use (nominal)
The EL-DataPad allows users of Lascar’s EL-USB data loggers to configure their units and download data and view logging results on-thespot rather than removing the logger from the environment being measured and taking it to their PC. This allows continual logging with shorter breaks in data collection, less travel for the user, on-site data collection in graph, legend and summary format and the ability for users to reconfigure loggers in ‘the field’.
The logger is connected to the EL-DataPad via a standard USB port at the top of the viewer. Once connected, the user is guided through a simple touchscreen menu with options to Set-Up Logger, Stop Logger & Download and View Data. On-screen instructions follow the same structure as Lascar’s EL-USB-WIN software for PC currently provided with each data logger.
Data from up to 100 loggers can be viewed on the EL-DataPad, with data from a further 400 units stored on the unit at any one time. Data can be transferred to a PC or Mac using a micro USB cable supplied with the unit. Once uploaded, data is saved in comma separated variable (csv) format, making it suitable for import into spreadsheet packages such as Microsoft Excel or graphed on a PC using Lascar’s EL-WIN-USB software .
The EL-DataPad is compatible with the following EL-USB data loggers: EL-USB-1, EL-USB-1-LCD, EL-USB-1-PRO, EL-USB-2, EL-USB-2+, EL-USB-2-LCD, EL-USB-2-LCD+, EL-USB-TC, EL-USB-TC-LCD, EL-USB-LITE.
- Battery: Lithium Polymer, rechargeable via micro-USB connection.
- LCD: 240x320 2.8” TFT with touch-screen.
- Internal Flash memory.
- Single front-panel push-button used for power-switch. Single press=ON, press & hold for 3 sec = OFF.
- 1x USB Type A socket (top of unit) for connection of Lascar data loggers.
- 1x micro-USB (bottom of unit) for connection of unit to PC via 1m
- USB cable supplied
