New 20-channel data logger launched

Graphtec GL820 data logger

Graphtec GL820 data logger

Leading regional data logger supplier, Lontek, has unveiled the all-new midi LOGGER GL820, which features an immense 20 analogue input channels as standard. What’s more, this configuration can be expanded up to a staggering 200 channels.

Perfect for evaluation and site testing, the general purpose GL820 data logger from Graphtec, allows users to simultaneously capture a broad range of real-time data quickly and easily. The 20 multi-function input channels are individually isolated to eliminate the possibility of signal corruption and they can capture data from process signals, voltage, temperature and humidity sensors with additional inputs for pulse and logic.

Should a greater number of channels be required on the device itself, users can simply add on 20 channel extension terminal kits to expand the number of channels up to 200. If more channels are needed, users can activate up to 500 channels by specifying PC measurement.

A true performer, the GL820 has the power to record fast changes in signals. It provides faster sampling rates for voltage measurements and can achieve an amazing 10ms sampling interval when the number of channels in use is limited.

The GL820 also features a new scaling function in the temperature measurement that can be adjusted by the operator to measure relative temperature.

Created with flexibility in mind, the midi LOGGER GL820’s huge 2GB flash memory enables secure long-term data measurement without the need for an external storage device. The GL820 can also save measured data directly to a USB memory stick and it can be replaced during measurement without fear of data loss.

For added convenience, the GL820 can be controlled remotely by a PC via a USB cable or a Web browser via Ethernet. This allows users to monitor and transfer data directly to a PC in real-time. The captured data can be easily converted for use in EXCEL thanks to the GL820’s standard software which is Windows 7 compatible.

The 14.5cm wide TFT colour LCD display ensures the GL820 is easy to read. Data is available in a smooth waveform or digital text form.

Compact and portable, the GL820 weighs in at just 900g. It is one of the lightest data loggers in its category on the market today. Designed with the user in mind, it is ergonomic and simple to navigate. Single touch buttons eliminate the need for complicated menu trees.

The GL820 comes complete with two re-chargeable batteries that provide up to 7 hours of power, an AC power adapter, USB cable, Windows graphical software and a plastic carry case with foam insert.
