OQ610 Portable Temperature Data Logger
Grant OQ610 6 Channel Thermocouple Input Data Logger
Dedicated data logger for temperature and through process monitoring
This temperature data logger is suitable for a wide range of temperature recording applications in industry, research and development. The OQ610 can be used as a stand alone temperature data logger or as part of a complete system for through process monitoring in the food and paint industries.
With the addition of a thermal barrier the Grant OQ610 is suitable for use in through process applications where heat treatment is being used to produce a product. To ensure consistent quality of heat treated products, it is important to have proof that they have passed through the manufacturing process at the right temperature for the right amount of time. By passing the Grant OQ610 oven logger through the process along with the products, a temperature profile can be produced to show exactly what is happening to the products and the process. Benefits include improved quality of your product and increased efficiency, reduced energy costs, quality assurance reports for compliance and traceability and complete quality control for your process.

- Graphical alarm and event identification lets you easily identify occurrences around specific analog or digital events e.g. pump coming on
- Quick Graph function lets you quickly and easily view large data files
- Export data into Excel™ in real time, or as a CSV file for customisable data analysis
- Easily view and control the logger status from one single screen
- Use the simple communication wizard for hassle free working with modems, Ethernet, GSM, etc.
- Download data by date, time or events, saving time when working via modem or looking for specific data
- Save settings on the PC for efficient re-use
- Protect your data and set-up configurations with the security function
SquirrelView Plus lets you quickly and easily analyse the data from your Squirrel data logger in a familiar Explorer™ style interface. Data can be displayed with 2 different auto scaling Y-axes. This is particularly useful when displaying widely varying data from different sensors on one graph. You can also zoom in on areas of interest, use a cursor to pick out exact values, times and dates, get a statistical summary of your data, set high and low alarm thresholds and, using the calculation function, you can create new virtual channels from existing channels.
SquirrelView Plus also incorporates a report generation facility, which allows you to create custom report templates consisting of a title page with descriptive text, headers and footers, graphs, tabular list of data, statistics and data logger setup information. Templates can be setup with any of these combinations and saves time when preparing similar presentations of data.
