Measurement Computing Corporation unveiled the USB-501-PRO temperature data logger. The USB-501-PRO standalone data logger features a rugged, stainless steel body. The USB-501-PRO is a corrosion, impact, and weather resistant device designed for data logging in harsh environments. The USB-501-PRO is priced at $150. It offers a greater temperature range, better accuracy, and more storage capacity than the USB-501.
The USB-501-PRO offers a storage capacity of up to 32,510 temperature readings over the -40 to +125 °C (-40 to +257 °F) range with a typical accuracy of ±0.2 °C (±0.4 °F). The body is made from machined 316 grade stainless steel, and provides an IP67 ingress protection rating. It is powered by a user-replaceable long-life lithium battery, which allows logging for up to three years.
The USB-501-PRO logger is supported by USB-500 Series Data Logger Application software, included with the package. This user-friendly, intuitive software is used initially to configure the logger, program alarm thresholds, logging rates, start times and measurement units. When the logger is retrieved from the field, the software provides simple, one-click access to download, display, and export the data. The user can display time-stamped temperature and alarm limits on a powerful strip chart graph. The data can also be downloaded to a text or a .csv (comma separated values) file. With these file types, users can easily export data to Excel spreadsheets with a single mouse click.
The software and all Measurement Computing USB-500 series data loggers are compatible with Windows 2000/XP/Vista (32-bit) operating systems.
