Novus FieldLogger for Flexible Industrial Monitoring

8-Channel Data Logger Has the Speed and Features for Your Application

CHESTERLAND OH — The Novus FieldLogger is a microprocessor-based data acquisition recorder designed to handle any analog input, operating either as a RTU linked to a PC for online recording/supervision or as a stand-alone data logger with real-time clock and graph capabilities. This affordable datalogger is popular for use as a Modbus RTU input device as part of a SCADA system to transmit channel data using Modbus protocol. With the speed and flexibility to handle analog and digital signals at high resolution and sample rate, the Novus FieldLogger is ideal for customers' data acquisition and temperature recording needs. CAS DataLoggers offers Novus products along with free technical support to get your application up and running ASAP. Give an Application Specialist a call at (800) 956-4437 to learn more.

8-Channel Remote Telemetry Unit:

With 8 universal channels for connection with different sensor types, the Novus FieldLogger offers several expansion modules and wireless communication accessories. The logger itself is DIN rail compatible and includes a 35mm rail mounting in an ABS enclosure. For example, the logger supports several types of thermocouples as well as Pt100, mA, mV and higher voltages by applying external resistor dividers. The logger is also capable of performing mathematical operations in the input channels. Additionally, the FieldLogger has a digital input for remote start/stop and 2 alarm relay channels which can be activated when any channel enters a programmed alarm condition; these relays can also be used as digital outputs.

Configuration is retained on the logger in non-volatile memory, and configuration and data retrieval are managed using a PC along with the included software. The Novus FieldLogger also features an RS485 interface allowing communication up to 1.6 miles (1 Km). For users without a RS485 port on their PC, Novus also manufactures an easy-to-use USB-RS485/RS422 converter, transforming an ordinary USB port into a fully-functional RS485 interface. The FieldLogger can also connect to a cloud server, giving users access to its data from anywhere at any time.

The logger also provides internal cold junction compensation for thermocouples, resulting in high-accuracy measurements. The FieldLogger also features an internal resolution of 20000 counts, linearity of better than 0.05% of FS, and can scan all 8 channels in 0.5s.

Software Included:

FieldChart configuration utility software is available as a free download from CAS DataLoggers. FieldChart is a Windows-compatible software which performs the communication and setup for the FieldLogger recorder and Novus controllers with RS485. The main module collects data to the PC, displays the data in both digital and graphic formats in batches or in real time, and provides trend and historical views. It can zoom in and out, superimpose or link graphs in one screen, print graphs or lists, and export to spreadsheets or word processors.

In addition to its standard use as a Modbus RTU, for online reading and recording, FieldChart also reads and generates a data graph for a 10-minute period. Users needing more in-depth data analysis can opt for the full version of FieldChart analysis software to form a complete data acquisition system.
