CAS and DataTaker Announce New Firmware Upgrade

Press release date: January 17, 2012

Popular dEX Software Adds Email and Text Messaging Capabilities

CHESTERLAND OH - CAS DataLoggers in partnership with bestselling manufacturer dataTaker are proud to announce the recent release of a substantial firmware upgrade to dataTaker's popular dEX software, which now allows users to send email and text messages. In addition to its graphing and report capabilities, now dEX can send warning messages when parameters suddenly go out of specification, so users get immediate warning to resolve potentially critical events.

The new dEX 9.08 upgrade was inspired directly from both novice and expert users working in a wide variety of applications around the world, applying to the entire range of dataTaker Series 1-3 dataloggers. With the software's new email and text messaging capabilities, users don't have to wait until coming to work next morning to keep tabs on their project-emails and texts now give them the chance to quickly take care of warning-level events.

Additionally, the dEX user interface has been streamlined and made more accessible with this latest upgrade, adding menus displayed clearly in a Windows-Explorer-style interface to the left. This intuitive arrangement makes default settings (including changing temperature from Celcius to Fahrenheit and date and time settings) easy to find with no hunting needed. Email and text sections including "Ethernet email" have also been added. As an added feature, dEX now shows users their last job/configuration on startup, automatically pulled up in a column at left.

The world-renowned dataTaker dataloggers easily connect to most sensors and data measurement sources, scaling and logging almost any physical value including temperature, voltage, current, 4-20mA loops, resistance, strain gauges, frequency, and more. They also provide an impressive array of communications features including RS232 with modem support, USB, Ethernet and USB memory stick ports, making them an ideal solution for real-time data acquisition, remote monitoring and control needs. Known for their robust construction, dataTaker data loggers are built to last even in the face of harsh environments and over years of constant use.

Free dEX software is included with every dataTaker logger, featuring an intuitive graphical interface allowing hassle-free configuration and displaying real-time sensor measurements, calculations and diagnostic information in an easy-to-use Windows Explorer style interface. Real-time data can be viewed in mimics, trend charts, or tables, and users can also retrieve historical data for analysis. To get users started quickly, dEX comes built-in with no applications to install, runs directly from a web browser, and can be accessed either locally or remotely anywhere that a TCP/IP connection is available including worldwide over the internet. The new upgrade is now being offered free through download on dataTaker's website at
