Measurement Computing Unveils USB-5201, USB-5203 Temperature Loggers

11/11/2005 - Measurement Computing Corporation, a market leader in low-cost data acquisition, announced the release of two new temperature loggers. The USB-5203 logs data from thermocouples, RTDs, thermistors, and semiconductor temperature sensors, while the USB-5201 logs data from thermocouples only. Both units log data to industry standard CompactFlash® (CF) cards. These new modules are ideal for remote or stand-alone applications requiring temperature measurement where the use of a dedicated PC or laptop is not feasible. Both of the devices provide user configurable temperature alarms for control of eight digital output lines.

A 64-MB CF card can store approximately 2,350,000 time-stamped temperature values from a single channel. CompactFlash cards up to 2 GB in size are supported. Data can be retrieved either by connecting the device to a computer via a standard USB cable, or by placing the removable CF card into any standard CF card reader. The devices are bundled with TracerDAQTM, an industry-leading software package that provides easy data management and analysis. TracerDAQ converts and saves temperature and alarm data to standard, comma-delimited .CSV or text files. TracerDAQ also plots and analyzes real-time data or historical temperature files.

According to Marc Marini, Measurement Computing’s General Manager, “Customers purchasing our USB-TEMP and USB-TC devices tell us that they love the performance of the product, but in some situations could not dedicate a computer to the measurement. These devices provide the perfect solution—they offer the same live temperature monitoring capabilities as the USB-TEMP and TC products, but can record the data to a removable CF card.”

These products ship with a 64-MB CF card, a power supply, a USB cable, and the following software:

Measurement Computing Corporation is the market leader in the design and manufacture of low-priced computer-based test and measurement hardware and software. These products include USB-based analog and digital I/O devices; Ethernet-based analog and digital I/O devices; analog and digital I/O boards, serial and GPIB interfaces for the USB, PCI, ISA, cPCI, PCMCIA, and PC/104 buses, as well as RS-232/485 serial interfaces. The company, founded in 1989, markets its products world wide.
