Accsense VersaLog TC for Standalone Thermocouple Measurement

8-Channel Temperature Data Loggers with Alarm Outputs

CHESTERLAND OH—January 19, 2015

We offer our Accsense VersaLog TC Temperature Data Logger for connection with all thermocouple types. Ideal for monitoring and alarming temperature in labs, medical storage units, incubators, and more, the TC is a versatile low-cost solution. Featuring 8 channels recording at high resolution, a large 4MB memory, and using Windows configuration and analysis/plotting software, Accsense VersaLog is an affordable alternative to expensive data acquisition devices and paper chart recorders. These products also feature USB, Serial port and Ethernet connections for easy local and remote access.

Thermocouple Data Loggers:

Designed for unattended data recording and storage applications, the VersaLog TC logger is compact and lightweight for flexible deployment. The logger’s 7 external input channels accommodate all types of external thermocouple probes, and the TC can also record ambient temperature. Additionally the unit can also be used as a small voltage data logger with the input voltage range as small as -8 mV to +8 mV.

All Accsense VersaLog data loggers are designed with a rugged, splash-resistant aluminum enclosure, and their internal electronics are protected against moisture by a PCB conformal coating. For standalone operation, an internal battery is standard with the logger with a life of about 10 years.

The TC’s 16-bit analog-to-digital (ADC) converter meets most high-resolution requirements for applications where accurate measurements are critical, whether monitoring temperature in medical refrigerators, freezers and incubators, or for use in the lab monitoring processes and liquids.

TC VersaLog thermocouple data loggers support a wide sampling interval range from every 20 milliseconds to every 12 hours. These data loggers record information and save measurements onto their non-volatile 4MB flash memory for quick retrieval. This amounts to up to 2 million measurements for extended logging periods with the choice to stop or overwrite logging when the memory is full.

Flexible Communications:

All VersaLog data loggers have a built-in USB port for configuration and downloading data via PC connection. These temperature recorders offer users their choice of connection options, supporting modem or Ethernet connections with an auto baud rate of up to 115 kbps.

An optional USB device server allows users to connect multiple VersaLog loggers to a single Ethernet port for remote network access. This allows users to mix and match models to monitor multiple values with a large number of channels.

Alarm Capability:

The TC’s two programmable alarm control outputs can be configured with low or high limits to activate a relay, switch on a light, trigger an audible alarm, or signal a PLC or other device. Users can program the dataloggers ahead of time to start logging whenever needed. Two configurable alarm thresholds are available per channel, and the ALARM1 & A2/EXT terminal strips can be configured as alarm outputs so users can stay on top of sudden changes in their data. The onboard LED lights in red when in alarm condition, and with purchase of the inexpensive software, the VersaLog also reports its alarm status to a host PC via USB, modem or Ethernet device server.

Powerful Software

Suiting both novice and advanced users, the powerful Versalog SiteView software is available for configuration, setup, downloading, plotting, data analysis and alarm reporting. SiteView is a Windows-based application with an intuitive graphic interface and supports USB, serial port and Ethernet connections. Fast communication speed up to 115200 bps enables quick downloads, while multiple file loading makes it easy to compare your data.

Versatile custom-line equations handle complicated measurement requirements such as scientific and laboratory algorithm difficulties. SiteView features real-time viewing and chart recording capabilities which replace chart recording devices. Users can also zoom in/out and also add comments to graphs for a detailed view of results.
