The Smart Universal Input Data Logger
The dataTaker DT85 universal input data logger is an intelligent logger with an extensive array of features allowing it to be used across a wide variety of applications such as R&D, energy monitoring, environmental monitoring, temperature profiling and more. The DT85 is a robust, stand alone, low power data logger featuring USB memory stick support, 18 bit resolution, extensive communications capabilities and built-in display. The dataTaker DT85’s Dual Channel concept allows up to 32 isolated or 48 common referenced analog inputs to be used in many combinations.
With support for multiple SDI-12 sensor networks, Modbus for SCADA systems, FTP and Web interface, 12V regulated output to power sensors, the DT85 is ready to be rolled out into environmental, industrial and many other types of monitoring projects.
Communications features include RS232 with modem support, USB, Ethernet and USB memory stick ports. Connect to the DT85 locally, remotely or over the Internet. The web interface allows users to configure the DT85, access logged data and see current measurements as mimics or in a list using a web browser. FTP provides data to your office over the internet or mobile phone network, without the need for polling or specific host software.
Universal and Configurable
Analog and digital channels, high-speed counter inputs, phase encoder inputs and programmable serial sensor channels allow the DT85 to easily connect to most sensors and data measurement sources. Temperature, voltage, current, 4-20mA loops, resistance, bridges, strain gauges, frequency, digital, serial and calculated measurements can all be scaled, logged and returned in engineering units or within statistical reporting. Group sampling, logging, alarm and control tasks within schedules to suit your requirements. Smart sensors, GPS, PLCs and other intelligent devices are supported via 2 serial sensor ports (RS232 or RS422/485), with our optional CANgate interface available for CAN bus applications.
Easy Data Management
Store up to 10 million data points in user defined memory, log as much or as little as you need with independent control of schedule size and mode. Overwrite or stop logging once allocated memory is full. Archive data on alarm event, copy to USB memory or transfer via FTP, the choice is yours.
