DataTaker Data Loggers

DataTaker Data Loggers

General Description of Datataker data loggers

From two channel data loggers up to systems with hundreds of analog inputs and many digital inputs. These loggers read, return, and/or store analog & digital data in engineering units from just about any electrical sensor or analog instrument. thermocouples, transistor temperature sensors, RTDs, strain gauges, current loop outputs from other instruments, voltages, currents, resistance, frequency, period, etc, (except AC).

AC voltages and currents may be measured by using external signal conditioners to convert to DC signals, or else Modbus transducers such as the Dent PowerScout. (opens in new tab)

Analog input channels can also sense logic level inputs (0/1). Readings are time & date stamped automatically. The loggers are autoranging and auto calibrating and have 15-bit resolution (1:40,000, 1µv). Accuracy is 0.15%, trimmable.

The DT80 series’ Ethernet port can be connected to the internet via standard networks, allowing remote access. The DT80M also includes a built-in 3G modem, allowing remote access as well as SMS alerts.

The digital inputs (with resistor pull-ups) sense ON/OFF states of contacts, etc, or count pulses over a desired period, either resetting or not resetting the counter at the end of each period.

With their alarm channels and digital outputs you can raise alarms (email / SMS / physical digital outputs), control external processes, or even modify the logger’s activity (e.g. scan more frequently, or scan more channels).

Readings may be returned directly or converted to more useful form by changing the span limits or linearising with polynomials within the logger. Also, readings may be averaged, with standard deviation, maximums, minimums, & times these occurred.

The loggers allow calculations to be made within the logger on readings from any channel, or between channels. There are internal variables for intermediate calculations and results, which may be read out or logged to memory. The loggers can determine change and rate of change on any channel, and perform integration.

The data may be either returned to a computer as it is collected (via RS-232 port / USB / Ethernet),
or may be stored in the logger’s own memory for later retrieval.

Internal memory holds approx 10 million readings (DT80 series). The internal flash storage may be upgraded by Esis to allow much more storage than this – please enquire.

Connection to the host computer can be made in several ways: Ethernet, USB, and serial Host Port. A separate USB port on the top allows USB flash drives to be used for extra storage, or automatic unloading of data from the logger (without needing to connect a PC).

The loggers have an in-built battery, allowing stand-alone use. Auxiliary batteries may be connected.

Mains frequency (50Hz) pick-up on the input leads is cancelled out. The reading rate is 25 readings per sec. (The reading rate can be made faster by reducing channel settle time, and integrate period, but the mains rejection is decreased).

What’s NASA doing with a little Aussie logger? Same thing as the West German military, Danish Atomic Energy, General Motors, Volvo, ICI, ESSO, Antarctic bases (60 loggers), sales offices worldwide. Just about all Universities and CSIROs in Australia, many industrial companies, Sydney Water uses over one hundred, Ausgrid & AGL have many.

 

Easy to setup and control

Most standard data logging configurations can be easily set up using the graphical web-based dEX interface and a standard web browser (requires Flash).

For more complex configurations, a script can be developed using the logger’s own scripting language, which is easy to use and well documented. Esis has extensive experience programming Datataker loggers, please enquire for our rates.

 

Software

dEX: The loggers themselves include a built-in web server called dEX which allows the logger to be configured, as well as data to be viewed and downloaded. All you need is a standard web browser with Adobe Flash.

The web interface can be accessed when the logger is connected up via Ethernet, or via USB (USB is not available on the DT82E or DT82I). With a USB connection, the logger automatically installs the USB-serial driver and a piece of software called DTUSB which opens a PPP network connection with the logger, and allows it to be accessed via a web browser.

DataTaker Resource CD: Standard Software, Manuals, Support & Training files DTKDSS-CD – included with Datataker as a USB Flash drive

Note: The legacy DeLogger software is no longer shipped with DataTakers.

Example of scripting language

A very simple example of a text program for Datataker:

To read the date, time, then three K type thermocouples every 2 seconds, send the following program to the logger:

R2S 1..3TK These commands mean:

Repeat every 2Sec, ch1 to ch3 Thermocouple K type.

Date and time are returned automatically if desired. These and many other parameters are easily set with software switches.

The data can be returned from the logger in real time, or at a later time from its memory. When logging data to the logger’s own memory, time and date are automatically recorded.

Data can be returned in various forms, for example in column format, which suits display on a dumb terminal:
Date 2/6/2000 (Date & Time may be returned if desired)
Time 00:08:48
1TK 28.4 Deg C (1TK indicates channel 1 with Thermocouple K type etc, etc.)
2TK 29.6 Deg C
3TK 35.2 Deg C

or with numbers only, and any desired delimiter:
00:08:48, 28.4, 29.6, 35.2
00:08:50, 28.5, 29.7, 35.3
00:08:52, 28.6, 29.6, 35.4 etc, etc,
which is suitable for use by a computer program, spreadsheet, etc..

Time can be in hours:min:sec, or just seconds, or decimal hours, and can be either from time of reset, or from last midnight.

Date can be specified, as day number, or dd/mm/yyyy.
The internal real time clock runs from its own battery with ten year life expectancy.

The loggers are highly flexible, and can be set up in all sorts of ways to suit the task to be done.
