Autonomous Datalogger offers multichannel functionality.

Press Release Summary:

Intended for daily use, MSR255 incorporates LCD and can simultaneously measure and save up to 5 measurement parameters; voltage signals from 4 additional analog channels may also be recorded. Instrument offers choice of temperature, humidity, air pressure, and light sensors along with sensor for monitoring acceleration/movement in all 3 coordinate axes. Acceleration sensor allows peak value to be recorded once per second while making measurements of up to 1,600 values/sec/axis.

New MSR255 Datalogger: a Robust Multitalent with LCD Screen

Henggart - Swiss technology company MSR Electronics GmbH introduces an autonomous logger with an LCD display into its universal range of mini dataloggers for daily use. The handy MSR255 simultaneously measures and saves up to five different measurement parameters. The voltage signals from four additional analogue channels can also be recorded.

The measuring tasks undertaken by the user define the way in which the MSR255 is configured: There is a choice of temperature, humidity, air pressure and light sensors (which can be fitted as required either internally within the case or externally on a cable) together with a sensor for monitoring acceleration/movement in all three co-ordinate axes. The 3-axis acceleration sensor with fast peak function allows the peak value to be recorded once a second whilst making measurements of up to 1600 values per second per axis. The voltage signal from four further analogue channels or sensors (0 to 3V, 12-bit resolution) can be measured in addition, e.g. conductivity, flow, viscosity and a wide range of other sensors for physical and chemical parameters. The analogue inputs are equipped with an alarm output, multiple output switching power supply and an input for starting and stopping data recording. The internal memory capacity of the MSR255 is over 2 million measurement parameters. Thanks to its higher capacity lithium polymer battery (2300 mAh) the unit is ideal for making long-term measurements. A permanent power supply can also be connected via a 6V socket. Data can be transferred to any PC or laptop using the software and USB cable supplied.

Individually configurable LCD display
The MSR255 has two operating keys. The easy-to-read 4-row backlit LCD display has four individually configurable views. Up to four display values can be defined for each of the views and users may select from all of the measurement channels, battery status, configurable limits and alarm values. The display also has an energy-saving mode.

External characteristics
Depending upon its configuration, the device in its anodised aluminium case weighs approx. 222g and will also be available in a sealed version in accordance with IP67. The dimensions are 78 x 62 x 38mm. Included with the unit is a snapper for easily fastening of the logger to a top-hat rail (TS 35).

The MSR255 datalogger is available in various configurations. Under the name LOG-HC2, Rotronic Messgeräte GmbH (Germany) will exclusively market a special version that is equipped with two inputs for connecting the company's own HygroClip2 probes for humidity and temperature measurements.
