New Software Update for Grant Squirrel Data Loggers

Press release date: January 9, 2014

SquirrelView V3.8 Adds CSV/TXT File Import and Quick Reporting

CHESTERLAND OH – CAS DataLoggers is pleased to announce a new software update for our popular Grant Squirrel Universal Data Loggers. SquirrelView V3.8 and V5.1a firmware updates the SQ2010, SQ2020 and SQ2040 Squirrel Data Loggers and improves Grant's already-robust functionality by adding CSV/TXT file import and quick reporting. You can download the new update on our Grant Downloads page at Whether your application is in heavy industry, cold chain supply or lab research, you can automatically monitor your process and collect data by using a datalogger as a more reliable and accurate method than manual measurement.

Updates in this release include importing of csv and txt files into analysis, a fix for the OQ610 Portable Temperature data logger, and quick reports when using degrees Fahrenheit. If your SQ20xx data logger is running a firmware version of V4.2 or older, it will need to be updated to the latest version. For a detailed walkthrough see Grant's Firmware Reprogramming Instructions. Additionally, this Youtube video shows how to reprogram the SQ2010, SQ2020 or SQ2040 data loggers firmware via the SquirrelView software:

Equipped with universal analog inputs, the Squirrel series is fully compatible with a wide range of temperature probes and with many other sensors to measure a wide variety of values including Temperature, Humidity, Current, Voltage and Resistance. Grant Squirrel SQ2020 data loggers offer an ideal out-of-the-box solution available in 3 configurations: the SQ2020-1F8 logger, the high-speed SQ2020-2F8 logger, and the SQ2020-2F8 WiFi wireless logger. CAS DataLoggers can also supply more demanding applications requiring up to 100 readings per second with the 4-channel Squirrel SQ2040 4F16 model.

Used all over the world thanks to their ruggedness and reliability, Squirrel dataloggers are battery-powered portable solutions for your standalone applications. Lightweight and easy to place anywhere, each data logger within the Squirrel series is backed by a 3-year warranty. Using the integrated 4-button keypad, users can configure their Squirrel data loggers in the field without needing a PC or laptop connection. It's easy to view logger status, setup and real-time graphical data in meter mode.

SQ2020 and SQ2040 data loggers can store up to 14 million points of data storage on non-volatile 128M internal memory which can be extended simply by using removable MMC/SD cards. Additionally, these data loggers boast a flexible communications array including Ethernet, USB, and an onboard RS232 communication port for connection to a PSTN or GSM modem.

Additionally, the Squirrel SQ2020 Wi-Fi data logger gives you the above communications options along with integral Wi-Fi wireless Ethernet networking—all in a compact and easy-to-use instrument.

All Grant Squirrel dataloggers include FREE SquirrelView setup and download software for PCs. SquirrelView's user-friendly, spreadsheet style interface allows quick configuration of the data logger, speedy download of data and direct export of stored data to a PC application including Excel™. The optional SquirrelView Plus software offers additional benefits such as graphical data analysis and advanced reporting options.

Wayne Porter, Applications Specialist for CAS DataLoggers comments: "Their battery operation makes our Squirrels a great standalone solution, and you can also set them up if you don't have a PC around. The price includes software and our experienced tech support to get you up and running ASAP."
