Additional Equipment Required


The VersaLog VL-TC Temperature Data Logger

The VL-TC Temperature Data Logger is an 8-channel, battery-powered, stand-alone thermocouple data logger. It records the ambient temperature and the seven external thermocouple probes. Data is stored in non-volatile flash memory for later retrieval.

VL-TC Temperature Data Logger can also be used as a small voltage data logger with the input voltage range as small as -2 mV to +18 mV.

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

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