Using Grant SQ2010/2020/2040 Data Loggers
If you’re working on a data acquisition project requiring extended data collection, Grant Squirrel series data loggers allow users to increase their internal memories if necessary. Grant and its North American distributor CAS DataLoggers show you how it’s done in this brief Technical Article. You can also watch Grant’s YouTube video at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ObdN-rmM68E.
Note: This requires version 3.5 of SquirrelView software and version 4.5 firmware (Controller and Acquisition) in the Data Logger. You can find these versions on our Download page.
