CAS DataLoggers Helps You Through the Selection Process
CHESTERLAND OH — Are you new to buying a data logger? When you give a call to a distributor, an initial low price may convince you that you've found a great deal, and maybe you have. However, many suppliers will then add on all the extra modules and software that you need to actually start your project! After your purchase, if you run into a problem, you might be out of luck because most distributors don't provide tech support or they'll charge for that too. Remember, if it sounds too good to be true, call CAS DataLoggers instead!
1. Add-on modules can quickly bump up the initial price, and you may discover you're paying much more than you were first led to believe. You might be led to think you're paying one flat price for a 'plug and play' data logger when in fact you still need sensors, communication modules, battery packs and more. Look for a supplier who's clear from the start about what your project needs and about what their data logger can do right out of the box.
2. With a larger supplier you can't always count on getting a knowledgeable guide who can explain everything you need to know before making a decision. At CAS DataLoggers, we can show you relevant products on our website and also give you an online demonstration so you can see for yourself what our systems can do for your business or organization.
3. Buyer beware—with some sellers, software costs extra! Make sure your quoted price includes an interface that's easy to work with, and if you need analysis or reporting capabilities, check to see that those are included too. Also check to see if your models all use the same software or if you'd need to learn 2 or more different software packages before you can get started logging.
4. Going with a seller who won't provide free technical support leaves you stuck if you have a problem, or the distributor may offer this service as another hidden cost. Unlike most providers we have our own in-house engineering and FREE tech support to help you if you run into an issue.
5. Make sure you go with a dependable manufacturer (not always a cheap one!). If you're not sure which datalogger might be best for your application, speak with one of our experienced Applications Specialists at 1-800-956-4437 and we can help you select the best data logger for your project.
