LogMessage 5000-Data Logger with Galvanic Isolation
CHESTERLAND OH - CAS DataLoggers has partnered with Delphin Technology to announce the new LogMessage 5000 Data Logger as the latest cost-effective solution for a wide range of data acquisition projects. The LM5000 enables data acquisition from 16 differential analog inputs with galvanic isolation of up to 650 VDC, particularly important when acquiring measurements from voltage-carrying components, such as in product testing of household appliances or electric motors. The new system is part of the new upgraded LogMessage 1000-9000 series replacing the bestselling LogMessage x00 line. Offering secure data acquisition via universal inputs with stand alone capability, this new series is ideal for a wide range of industrial applications including PC-independent measurement and testing, product testing, laboratory, R&D, temperature data acquisition, fault diagnostics at machines/plants, GPS data logging/remote monitoring and many more.
The LM5000 is a high-speed datalogger with sampling rates of up to 80 measurements per second and an intuitive function making it easy for users to configure inputs, save data, and display data as trends. Each of the LogMessage 5000's analog inputs can be separately configured, and any type of thermocouple can be used for temperature measurement. The LogMessage 5000 is equipped with linearization curves for all thermocouple types and has pre-installed reference points so that any thermocouple can then be connected and used immediately, giving users a quick start to their projects.
New improvements to the LogMessage series include four serial interfaces, up to 16 GB of local memory, an Ethernet interface, and extensive functionality. LogMessage devices are precision instruments that feature universal sensor connection-they can be switched via software to function with any type of sensor. Pt100 and Pt1000 sensors can be fed directly from the LogMessage device via a 4-wire connection. Analog inputs can be used to also measure mA or mV signals. Scaling is performed immediately according to the required measurement unit.
Additionally, data can be transferred online to a PC via the LogMessage 5000 LAN interface. The LAN interface is also galvanically isolated as are the power supply and all other interfaces-by up to 1000 VDC. LogMessage devices are fully protected against earth loops enabling measurements from non-isolated sources. All analog inputs can function as differential inputs.
The LogMessage 5000 is equipped with a standard data storage capacity of up to 250 million measurement records (expandable to 1 billion), offering improved data security and reliability over PC-based systems. Each measurement record is recorded with a time and date stamp. The data is then evaluated using the professional ProfiSignal Go software included with the LogMessage 5000. This PC software is used for online/offline monitoring and measurement data analysis of any type of measurement data. Just three steps are required to display measurement data as trends, to analyze the data, and to evaluate offline data. ProfiSignal Go has a choice of diagrams that can be run simultaneously. The integrated DataService software provides data storage and archiving functions. In combination with ProfiSignal Go, the DataService also provides many alarm management and monitoring functions. The DataService enables ProfiSignal to function efficiently and powerfully as well as to process large data volumes via multiple and diverse interfaces. Data can be exported as a CSV-file for convenient accessibility.
