New High Accuracy Temp & Humidity Data Logger with Graphic Screen
Press release date: March 10, 2014
CHESTERLAND OH — CAS DataLoggers has partnered with Lascar to release a new high-accuracy version of its GFX-2 standalone datalogger. The new GFX-2+ Temperature & Humidity Datalogger has a dot-matrix LCD showing real-time readings, graphs and current status. Setup and operation couldn’t be easier, and the micro USB interface enables quick set-up and data download. This portable solution has improved accuracy for critical applications in cold chain storage, medical monitoring of vaccines and products, and many other uses. Available immediately from CAS DataLoggers at an affordable price, these new loggers are ideal for keeping tabs on your data in the field.
The new GFX-2+ data logger features a dot-matrix LCD and three face-buttons to navigate through an onscreen menu. This menu gives users access to real-time trend analysis, data summaries (showing highest and lowest readings and alarm conditions) or as a graph that updates as new data is added. Users also have the ability to start, stop and restart the data logger in the field without the need to connect to a PC. Multiple data logging sessions can be stored on the device ready for upload to a PC at a later date.
Equipped with a higher-accuracy sensor when compared with the EL-GFX-2, this standalone USB data logger measures and stores over 250,000 temperature and humidity readings over a -30 to +80ºC (-22 to 176°F) and 0 to 100%RH range at a resolution of 0.1ºC (0.1°F) and 0.1%RH. Users can set logging rates to take a reading anywhere between 10 seconds and 1 hour. The data logger is supplied with 2 replaceable ½AA batteries, a USB cover, Mounting Clip, and a Micro USB cable. The logger itself has a rugged and robust construction rated IP67 for waterproof protection.
Free Setup & Control Software
Lascar’s popular Easylog USB control software is easy to install and use, running under Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7. EasyLog is used to setup the data logger as well as download, graph and export data to Excel and other applications. Each stored logging session is saved as a separate file. Users can also reset the max/min reading using the on-screen menu: this introduces an ‘event marker’ into the data which can later be viewed in the graphing software and the data file after download. The latest version of the control software may be downloaded free of charge from CAS DataLoggers.
The software allows users to configure:
• Logger name
• Choice of Celcius or Fahrenheit
• Logging Rate
• High and low temperature alarms
• Immediate, delayed, push-button or temperature/humidity triggered start mode
• Disable or enable highly-visible LEDs and audible alarms with delayed activation
• Display and backlight behavior after button press
The EasyLog software also enables users to download all stored data which can then be graphed, printed and exported to other applications.
