Price Guide: POA

Simple to Setup

The freely supplied DeLogger software allows the DT800 to be quickly and easily configured for your day to day data logging tasks, and the online video tutorials make this task a breeze.

Integrated Solution

The DT800 can also be programmed to perform some very powerful tasks using the DataTaker command instruction set. Commands are sent to the unit via a terminal program such as DeTransfer or Windows Hyper terminal. The command instructions allow the DT800 to be configured for the more complex data logging applications where the DT800 is to be integrated into a system. Note, DeTransfer is free to download via the DataTaker website. www.datataker.com

Multi Channel Inputs

Boasting multi input software selectable channels that support a range of sensors including thermocouples, PT100, Thermistors, AC & DC voltage, current (via shunts), resistance, bridges, strain gauges, frequency and more.

Digital I/O

With sixteen digital I/O channels the DT800 can be used to record when a switch contact is turned on/off or to control a small relay by turning it on or off plus much more. See the technical brochure for more details on the digital I/O channels.

Sampling Speed

Normal Mode. Typical data logging sampling speeds range from once per second to once per hour. The DT800 can sample down to 100ms but this will vary up and down due to the number and type of channels you need to measure.
Burst Mode. In burst mode the DT800 can record up 50kHz or 200µs on a single channel, this sampling speed drops as the number of channels is increased. Add to this the ability to pre & post trigger and the DT800 becomes very handy for taking snapshots of data.

Real-time monitoring

Data from the DT800 can be viewed in real-time with DeLogger software or a custom software package can also be written by any Software developer to suit your specific requirements. DataTaker have freely available resource drivers and tools for Labview™ and Active X.

Remote data transfer

Remote data transfer via TCP/IP across a Local Area Network(LAN) or Wide Area Network (WAN) is a great way to access data remotely. The DT800 can be connected to just about any ADSL, Cable or 3G (NextG) modem with a TCP/IP network connection allowing the DT800's data to be retrieved anywhere around the world over the internet. If security is an issue, then a Virtual Private Network(VPN) can also be set up for data security.

The built in RS232 port on the DT800 can support PSTN or GSM modems for remote dial-in and dial-out or SMS Text messages and can be sent via the SMSX GSM modem.

Manual data transfer

Manual data transfer on the DT800 is performed in two ways, either via a PCMCIA card or direct to the PC.
