Simple-To-Use Data Loggers

Posted by: Electrical Products & Solutions Magazine | Posted: November 2019
Author: John Olobri - AEMC® Instruments - Directory of Sales & Marketing

AEMC Instruments Electrical Products and Solutions cover story Simple-to-use Data Loggers DATA LOGGERS serve several very important tasks. They assist in preventative maintenance by enabling a person to quickly accomplish documenting information needed to support the proper operation of production systems and processes. Data Loggers serve as a technicians eyes to find intermittent problems, as some parameters and events cannot be seen in real time. Reviewing and analyzing the recorded data on a computer screen is more beneficial then an engineer trying to spot an issue manually.

Data loggers come in all shapes and sizes and cut across a wide price spectrum from hundreds of dollars to thousands of dollars. You can break down the requirement into two types, those measuring and recording AC information and those measuring and recording DC information.

A new breed of data loggers called simple loggers have emerged which take away all the up-front decision making for the installer. These loggers are usually low-cost single channel devices that that can be installed quickly in a wide variety of applications
