New Wireless Current Data Logger with LCD Screen
Press release date: January 16, 2014
CAS DataLoggers Has a System for Any Application
CHESTERLAND OH – CAS DataLoggers and MadgeTech have partnered to introduce the new RFCurrent 2000A Wireless Current Data Logger with display, designed to measure and record DC current signals. The data logger can connect directly to low-level DC current sources which makes it ideal for (PV) Photovoltaic research, battery usage studies, energy monitoring studies and other DC current monitoring applications. Users can also interface these data loggers with a wide range of current output sensors such as flow meters, pH transmitters and more. Through the software, the device can be programmed with engineering units which convert the current readings into a different unit of measure such as flow rate. The engineering unit is available for display on the LCD screen as well as in the software. The RFCurrent2000A is available in 20mA, 160mA or a 3A measurement range. Featuring a digital display, direct USB interface and configurable alarms, the new data logger is now available from CAS DataLoggers at a cost-effective price.
The RFCurrent2000A features an LCD screen which provides instant access to the current reading, minimum, maximum and average statistics. The screen also has a battery life indicator (battery life is 4 years at 15 Minute Sampling Rate). The statistics can be reset through the datalogger’s keypad, allowing users to keep track of statistics over certain time periods. This feature does not erase the data recorded, but only resets the statistics count. The RFCurrent2000A can be used as a standalone data logger, or used with the RFC1000 wireless transceiver to transmit data back to a central PC. The RFCurrent2000A transmits up to 500’ line of sight to the RFC1000 transceiver. Multiple RFC1000’s can be used as repeaters and transmit up to 1000’ line of sight to other RFC1000’s. This allows the data to be sent over a greater distance. AC Power Connection can be done via USB. A NIST certificate (standard calibration) is optional.
The RFCurrent2000A can be used as a single, wireless data logging system, or can be expanded to a large-scale system, and utilizes the latest MadgeTech 4 Software. Data can be viewed in graphical or tabular formats, and users can view summary and statistics for further analysis. The software features export to Excel®, data annotation, digital calibration and more.
Our data loggers are used in a wide variety of applications in remote monitoring, in industrial process and manufacturing industries, for automotive and aerospace data collection, in pharmaceutical manufacturing and storage, and in geological and environmental monitoring. We have even flown units on the Space Shuttle and ISS (International Space Station)!
