sensor+test 2018, hall 5, booth 330: T&D Corporation presents easy to adapt wireless data logger systems for a broad range of measurement tasks
Matsumoto (Japan), April 2018 – At this year’s sensor+test, T&D Corporation will showcase three modular data logger families for convenient monitoring of climatic parameters. The RTR-500 family includes wireless loggers, devices for communication and data collection as well as services and software, each combinable for tailor-made systems. The TR-4 series with Bluetooth 4.0 facilitates real-time supervision of constantly changing temperature data, tracked and controlled with mobile devices. And last but not least, the economical TR-7 series includes different types of stand-alone devices. For all three of these flagship ranges, data handling can optionally be managed over an internal network or, if desired, with T&D’s free of charge cloud, the WebStorage Service.
The RTR-500 series is designed for users who need high performance wireless logging as well as optimal flexibility. The compact data loggers monitor many different parameters, including temperature, humidity, voltage, mA (4-20mA), pulse, UV, illuminance and CO2. Wireless GSM, Ethernet and USB base stations are available alongside a handheld data collector model. These units automatically aggregate the data from compatible loggers within a 150 metre free air range, or longer distances strengthened through a repeater. There’s no need to install cabling or to travel to collect the data, and the base stations also perform automated alarm monitoring via email, SMS or App messaging.
The TR-4 series comprises three models, all operating with low energy Bluetooth 4.0, providing different temperature sensor types and measurement ranges to serve diverse application requirements. Without the need for pre-registration, loggers within the communication range are instantly detected and continuously refreshed by mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets.
Additionally on show will be the best-selling TR-7 series, containing affordably priced off-the-shelf devices. The wf models support wireless LAN, while the nw models are designed for wired LAN connection. Both provide two-channel sensors for temperature or temperature plus humidity as well as two-channel thermocouples (K, J, T, E, S, R) to cover a broad range of measurements.
Visitors to the T&D booth will also be able to find out about the company’s cloud as well as various software and tools. Up to 20 MB of data records per account can be monitored or stored in the cloud-based T&D WebStorage Service. Apps for mobile devices ease data handling. For users who prefer to operate via their own internal storage, optional software is available, too. All of these free of charge facilities enable users to access current readings, change settings and receive alert warnings from compatible T&D products in easy-to-read graphs or tables at any time and from any place.
