How to Establish a Cleanroom Monitoring Plan

Identify and Help Prevent Risks in Hospital & Pharma Cleanrooms Many hospital and pharmaceutical technicians know that they need to establish an environmental monitoring plan/regime for their cleanroom, but CDC regulations are many and varied. How do you tie together the many different requirements to monitor, alarm and document the data? If you work in … Continued

Why You Should Consider Using Isolated Measurement Systems

The Benefits of System Isolation By keeping data acquisition signals separate, electrical isolation adds a layer of protection to your measurement equipment, both for the system’s components and to its collected data. But what exactly is electrical isolation, and what amount of isolation does your data acquisition system need? In this latest White Paper from … Continued

The Benefits of Data Acquisition in Closed-Loop Systems

Feedback Control Systems Enable Real-Time Monitoring Closed-loop systems—electronic control systems which incorporate feedback–are a mainstay of modern manufacturing and R&D. As with many industrial control systems such as PLCs, the goal is to ensure a repeatable process. Whether you’re working on a research application, supervising/servicing an industrial process or supervising a whole plant’s operations, in … Continued

Need to Do an Energy Audit But Don’t Know How?

Start Saving With This Quick Checklist Most companies and organizations have many unexplored ways to lower their energy bills. In fact your own facility likely has several unrealized areas where you can decrease or otherwise optimize your energy usage for substantial long-term savings. While an energy audit is an ideal way to achieve this, many … Continued

Run Time Monitoring Using an Event Data Logger

The Basics of Monitoring Productivity, Equipment Monitoring, and More Just as with monitoring of other values such as equipment temperature, power factor and vibration, there are varying levels of detail when it comes to run time/event monitoring. At CAS DataLoggers, many of our callers want to see how often one or more of their machines … Continued

Four Common Sources of Inaccuracy in Sensor Measurements

How to Improve Your Data Acquisition System’s Measurement Accuracy Connecting a sensor such as a thermocouple to a data acquisition system to obtain accurate measurements involves some forethought. For example, electromagnetic signal interference (aka ‘signal noise’) and many other factors can combine to negatively affect measurement accuracy, or possibly even damage the equipment! Understanding these … Continued

Capturing and Simulating Rotational and Jitter Angle-based Measurements

ADwin Data Acquisition Systems for Real-Time Measurements Capturing and simulating the high-speed rotations involved in automated machines and test rigs often plays a major role in industrial applications. Common requirements are accurate speed measurement over a large range of operation, detection of speed changes, capturing jitter, jitter simulation, and angle-based data acquisition. The Applications Specialists at … Continued

Turning Point Analysis with dataTaker Data Loggers

Flexible dataTaker Systems Let You Monitor Almost Any Value Turning Point Analysis is a method of data compression for arbitrary waveforms. The incoming waveform is sampled at speed and analyzed in real time to identify the turning points (Maxima and Minima) of the waveform, and the value and time of the turning point are also … Continued

Training Aid Development For a Fire and Rescue Service

Grant Squirrel 2020-1F8 Portable Universal Input Data Logger CAS DataLoggers recently provided the datalogging solution for a large county’s Fire and Rescue Service (FRS) whose workers were acknowledged national leaders in the field of fire behavior training. Firefighters wearing heavy breathing apparatus and protective clothing often had to work in smoke-filled environments with very low … Continued

Intelligent Data Logging Operations

Wide Variety of General-Purpose and Application-Specific Data Loggers 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 data … Continued
