Every LogMessage is delivered with the professional PC software ProfiSignal Go, used for online/offline monitoring and measurement data analysis. Just three steps are required to display measurement data as trends, to analyze the data, and to evaluate offline data.
Other software is available for all types of applications:
- ProfiSignal Go : Software for data acquisition (included)
- ProfiSignal Basic : software for process visualization and monitoring
- ProfiSignal Klicks : software for the automation of process and measurement procedures
Systems are delivered to match user requirements: e.g. long-term monitoring, machine monitoring, or remote monitoring.

Universal Sensor Connection
LogMessage devices are precision instruments that can be switched via software to function with any type of sensor.
- Universal use of analog inputs for mA-, mV-signals, RTDs, or any thermocouple
- Signal rate of 0.1 Hz to 10 kHz
- Digital inputs suitable for up to 90 VDC
- Frequency inputs up to 35 kHz
Galvanic Isolation Included
LogMessage devices are fully protected against earth loops enabling measurements from non-isolated sources.
- All analog inputs can function as differential inputs
- Isolation voltage between analog inputs: 110 VDC to a maximum of 650 VDC
- Galvanic isolation between power supply and each interface
- No earth loop problems
Secure Data Storage
The LogMessage's data storage capability enables it to function without PC or network support.
- 3.5 GB of memory for 250 million data records
- Each measurement data record is recorded with a time-stamp (date and time – at microsecond precision)
- Measurement data can be assigned to groups and used as triggers
- No data loss in the event of power failure
- Alarm management with pre and post alarm data
Comprehensive Signal Processing
Software channels, configurable according to requirements, can be used for online calculation, monitoring, and many other functions. This enables data to be generated that is immediately usable.
- Online calculations performed on measurement data (e.g. temperature differentials)
- Integration functions (e.g. flows to volumes)
- Limit value monitoring with alarm functions (switching digital outputs)
- Counter function and operational data acquisition
Resolutions for Demanding Requirements
LogMessage devices are suitable for both slow- and high-speed measurements. Time resolution for analog measurement data is at 100-μs precision levels; digital resolution at millisecond precision. The devices are equipped for precision measurement
with 24-Bit ADCs.
Web Server Included
LogMessage devices are equipped with internal web servers. The standard version displays current measurement data in a channel list as well as extensive configuration and maintenance information. In combination with the ProfiSignal WEB option, views can be generated and loaded into the LogMessage in HTML5.
Software channels are capable of performing computations on online measurement data, and used for visualisation, storage or monitoring purposes. The processing of signals takes place independently within the LogMessage device and requires no PC support. There is virtually no limit on the number of software channels that can be used. Software channel computations run parallel to data acquisition and logging. Software channels are included in delivery.
ProfiSignal Go is intuitive functioning measurement data software for recording, trend portrayal, analysis and export. Online measurement data can be observed in a trend while evaluating archived in another trend.
Installation is very simple. It takes just a few mouse clicks to go from sensor connection to trend output. ProfiSignal Go is user friendly and supplied free of charge with every device.
There are virtually no limits to trend portrayal for online and offline measurement data. Archived and online measurement data can be evaluated without having to interrupt ongoing measuring procedures. This is a unique function that is especially valued by customers.
In addition to y (t) diagrams are y (x) - and logic diagrams. The ProfiSignal Go Toolbox contains trend functions such as movable axes, zoom functions, cursors, markers and data export (e.g. as CSV or EMF files). Using the toolbox is self-explanatory. Configured trends can be saved and reused.
For visualization and automation functions, software upgrades to ProfiSignal Basic and ProfiSignal Klicks are possible at any time.
ProfiSignal Go also provides alarm management. A global alarm list provides a clear portrayal alarm notifications in tabular form. Alarm settings for the monitoring of over-runs, under-runs, process violations, status outcomes etc. are configured using the DataService/Configurator software. Measurement data can also be used to trigger specific actions, e.g. sending text messages or emails or switching digital outputs.
