Data Logging: Make Your Task Easy

In this era when almost everything is automated and can be accessed on the internet, data logging is no exception.

Data logging is taking and keeping data over a certain period. Data to be measured may include environmental parameters like temperature and humidity. It can also be electrical information such as current and voltage. Many other parameters can be measured and recorded by data logging systems or data logger.

A data logger is the component that performs this data logging. With its vast applications of measuring signals from sensors, it can detect and record data like relative humidity, voltage, current, pressure, temperature, load, etc.

Different loggers have different capacity for input. Some sectors need only one measurement while some need more channels and measurements. With that in mind, manufacturers also make data loggers that can handle over a hundred inputs. One specific example, Omega’s OMB-LOGBOOK-300 can deal with more than 400 channels.

In conventional data logging, data has to be physically measured and recorded. The data is then individually encoded to the PC for making graphs and analysis. With the latest trend in data logging, data is automatically transmitted to a PC and the processor can immediately create a visual representation of the data taken over a period. Both time and effort are saved in the process.

In addition, analysis and data recording is real-time. No waiting time is involved. Since the data loggers can be wireless as well, the cost and the installation time for cables are also reduced.

Furthermore, data loggers attached to PC have the capacity to store bigger amounts of data unlike the conventional data loggers. This feature is essential in parameters needing continuous monitoring.

All these and more create the data logging world more efficient and convenient.
