Description

A versatile, powerful and yet cost effective data logger, the Novus Fieldlogger can handle analog, digital and other types of variables with high resolution and speed. It is a high performance and high connectivity equipment and yet easy to configure and operate.

It has 8 configurable analog inputs that can read thermocouples, Pt100, Pt1000, voltage and current signals. It also has 2 relay outputs and 8 digital ports individually configurable as inputs or outputs.

Up to 128 mathematical channels can be used to perform operations on the measured values. Up to 32 alarm events can be detected, allowing output activations, e-mails and SNMP traps sending.

The RS485 interface can operate as a Modbus RTU master or slave. As a master, it can read and log up to 64 external channels. It has a 10/100 Mbps Ethernet interface that allows for access through a browser (HTTP), FTP (client and server), e-mails sending (SMTP), SNMP and Modbus TCP.

FieldLogger has one USB interface to be connected to a computer (for configuration, monitoring and data download) and another USB port for plugging a flash driver for data retrieval. The 512k logging basic memory is used to store data and it can be greatly expanded with an SD card. FieldLogger can now connect to a server in the cloud, allowing access to its data from anywhere at any time.

An exclusive color HMI can be attached or remotely installed for local indication or configuration. A user friendly configurator software can be accessed by Ethernet, USB or RS485 and also provides means for on-line monitoring, logged data downloading and exporting to spread sheets and other formats.

Software

An intuitive configuration software comes with the equipment, allowing an easy configuration due to its wizard-like step-by-step system. Users can save the configuration in files and load it at a later time. Communication with the equipment can be done through USB, RS485 or even Ethernet(ModbusTCP) interface.

Besides configuring, it also allows to view the configured channels, alarms state and a lot more status information. It still allows logged data download and export them to several known formats.
