THE Almemo 2690.8 handheld data logger is for use in harsh environments, and is suitable for use with all Almemo environmental and atmospheric monitoring sensors.
Available from Technical & Scientific Equipment , the new instrument includes a shock absorbing rubber cover, and is rated at IP54 when used with Almemo waterproof input and output connectors.
Parameters such as wind speed, temperature, moisture, humidity, gas concentration including carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, oxygen and ozone; barometric pressure, low to high pressure, and many others can be read live and recorded for later analysis. Standard memory is 512kB (100,000 values).
The 2690.8 has many 'virtual' channels as well as prime channels. This feature enables derivative parameters from the prime channels to be also displayed and logged.
The 2690.8 displays all data as alpha-numeric lists, or graphically in plot or histogram format. All 'live' channels can be concurrently displayed allowing channel-to-channel on-the-spot visual comparison.
The white background of the adjustable back-lit LCD display enables the data to be read in dark or bright outdoor locations. With portability in mind, the instructions for the operation of the compact handheld 2690.8 appear as prompts on the screen.
Each instrument is also supplied with software that enables the 2690.8 to be set up via a PC. The software includes a simple data-base onto which the data logged by the 2690.8 can be uploaded and analysed. Each logged result is labelled with the date and time, the numeric value of the signal, the engineering unit, plus other symbols if applicable.
More sophisticated software packages are available within the Almemo product range.
