Remote Data Logger has applications in every type of industry where continuous data acquisition & monitoring is required. An exceptionally low cost SCADA solution.
Softbit has launched industrial automation products for all types of industrial applications. Remote data Logger, model: RMC-05 is the basic module which will work with any electrical system/machine like electric motors, power transformers, boilers, production lines for local as well remote data acquisition, monitoring and control. This is a microprocessor based “Plug & Play” device that comes fully pre-programmed. It finds it advantages for energy conservation, remote monitoring & control, industrial automation, power management, enterprise integration. This is a low cost SCADA solution for any type of industry.
The relay contacts available in this remote data logger can be configured by the user itself to get the desired output. As one can use the same RMC-05 with a star/delta starter to remotely monitor and control an electric motor. Or can record the no of items manufactured by a production line by keeping a record on no. of items have passed through a infra red sensor. However, whilst it is very useful to use a data logger to record a process, or environmental conditions. The data is no cash advances use inside the data logger, it has to be downloaded to a PC to be viewed by the relevant users. Typically a user will take a laptop PC to the site and connect directly to the data logger to download the data. This is OK where the site is nearby and data does not need to be downloaded very often, but for remote sites, or where the data logger needs to be downloaded often this is not very practical.
One aspect of the loggers is that they usually have a time stamping mechanism and can match data received to the time it was logged. If the logger has a built in real time clock, sometimes there is a bit of time drift however, the specifics of a logger’s time drift are published and should be taken into consideration when choosing a machine. Some equipment has very simple inputs and can only accept one or two channels of information. Other more sophisticated machines have intricate combinations of channels that involve multiple inputs for sensors as well as specific information sources. Modern versions can interact with external computer programs and are even able to automatically present collected information on a web page for remote collaboration between users. This ability to utilize data over the web has been very useful for the medical profession.
