What is The Internet of Things?

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a popular phrase for the emerging class of Internet-capable physical objects such as appliances and control systems. It seems as if almost every vendor of electronic devices has some active development of IoT devices and new Internet of Things products are being introduced to the market daily. This new … Continued

Basic Techniques for Accurate Resistance Measurement

Reduce Measurement Errors in your Application At CAS DataLoggers we often receive calls from users working in resistance measurement applications, for example using string pots to measure movement, measuring thermistors/RTDs for temperature, measuring the resistance on test samples, and many more applications. Some of our callers are surprised to learn that there’s a variety of … Continued

Guide to Saving Time with Intelligent Data Logging

How to Simplify Data Analysis and Find Answers Quicker When trying to define intelligent data Iogging, it’s useful to compare it with traditional data logging. In the past, data loggers or recorders would typically be configured to sample a set number of channels at a fixed rate and store the recorded values in memory. The … Continued

Measure Voltage and Current Using a Data Logger

How to Record Accurate AC and DC Current and Voltage Measurements A common data logging application is to measure voltage and current flowing into or out of a piece of equipment, such as a user monitoring current in wind turbines. These measurements can be broadly classified into two groups: AC and DC. Depending on the levels involved, some … Continued

Thermistor Calibration for High Accuracy Measurements

Calculating Steinhart-Hart Coefficients for High-Precision Readings Technicians and engineers often use thermistors to measure temperature in applications which require high accuracy. Thermistors operate by changing resistance as their temperature changes in a very predictable but non-linear way. This characteristic allows them to provide higher accuracy than thermocouples or RTD’s. In order to ensure this high … Continued

What is a Data Logger?

Understanding Data Loggers What is a data logger? The generally accepted answer is that a datalogger is an electronic device that autonomously records data from some type of sensor and stores it in local memory with a time and date stamp. Data Loggers are widely used in virtually every industry for a variety of applications. … Continued

Data Logger vs DAQ

Key Differences Between Data Logging and Data Acquisition What is the difference between a Data Logger vs DAQ System? A data logger is a type of data acquisition system, but a data acquisition system is not necessarily a datalogger. There are several key functional differences in how the market understands these two classes of instruments. While the differences … Continued

Data Logging 101

Getting Started with Data Collection Do you need a way to capture important information such as temperature, pressure or voltage but don’t know how to get started? The Application Engineers at CAS DataLoggers have put together this brief overview to help guide you through the basics of data logging and how they can simplify data … Continued

Guide to Choosing the Right Temperature Sensors

Temperature measurements are among the most common data logging applications found across a broad variety of industries including medical monitoring, cold chain integrity, machine monitoring, and many more. There are 4 main types of temperature sensors that are used with data loggers, and it can seem like a lengthy decision to find the right type. … Continued

How Accurate Do Your Measurements Need to Be?

At CAS DataLoggers, our callers and customers often ask us for the specifications on our most accurate measurement instruments. The higher the accuracy, the better the system…right? But how accurate do your measurements actually need to be? In our latest White Paper, we detail the most important factors that go into selecting an ideal measurement … Continued
