Description

The DCV-2 is an 8-channel, battery powered, stand alone voltage data logger. The logger records up to 2 million readings of data and stores it in non-volatile flash memory for later retrieval. Input voltage signals can be from sensors, transducers, transmitters or any other common voltage sources.

Featuring an aluminum enclosure, the data logger has excellent performance in the harshest industrial environment.

Powered by a 16-bit ADC and programmable input range, the data loggers are well suited to science and laboratory applications where precise and accurate measurement is critical.
