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
