Firetail DAQ data acquisition products Australia have again expanded the range of the popular pocket sized and low cost USB-500 series data loggers with a thermocouple temperature logger with a liquid crystal display with the release in Australia of the USB-501-TC-LCD.
The USB-501-TC-LCD is a single channel battery powered standalone thermocouple data logger for measuring and recording temperatures between -200 to +1300°C and features a 4 digit LCD display. The USB-501-TC-LCD stores over 32,000 temperature readings from either K, J or T type thermocouples. The thermocouple is attached via a standard thermocouple socket.
The USB-501-TC-LCD is essentially the same as our USB-501-TC except for the display and a software selectable data rollover feature that allows unlimited logging periods by overwriting oldest data when memory is full. The user can set up the logger and view downloaded data by plugging the module into a PC’s USB port using the supplied software. The user can select sampling rate, start-time, logging mode, turn the LCD on or off, and perform calibration, data download and analysis.
Data can then be graphed, printed and exported to other applications. The USB-501-TC-LCD also features high and low alarm settings, LEDs to indicate logging status, and a user-replaceable long-life lithium battery, which can typically allow logging for up to 6 months. The high-contrast LCD can display several different temperature variables and at the touch of a button can cycle between the current temperature, the maximum and minimum stored temperature values and logger status.
The USB-501-TC-LCD is supplied with a K type thermocouple, a long life lithium battery and application software that is functional and powerful yet simple and easy to use.
