The DT82E is built on the ever popular DT80 platform and has been scaled down for remote monitoring markets or applications that only require a low channel count.
Multi Channel Inputs
Boasting multi input software selectable channels that support a range of sensors including thermocouples, PT100, Thermistors, DC voltage, current, 4-20mA loops, resistance, bridges, strain gauges, frequency and more... the DT82E will suit just about any application.
With four bi-directional digital I/O channels the DT82E can be used to record when a switch contact is turned on/off or to control a small relay by turning it on or off. In addition there are four counter input channels for devices such as water flow meters or energy meters. See the technical brochure for more details on the digital I/O channels.
GPS Data Logger
Connect the DT82E to the output of your GPS and start recording your current location. Read more about using your DT82E as a GPS Data Logger on the DataTaker FAQ site. See example DT80 code setup here or ask Lontek to quote on setting up a system for you.
MODBUS Slave TCP/IP - SDI-12
Supporting MODBUS (Slave only), the DT82E can be easily interfaced with PLCs, HMI touch panel displays, and many of the other MODBUS Master devices on the market. With more and more sensors now supporting either RS232 Serial ASCII data or SDI-12, the DT82E will enable you to expand your sensor options well beyond the analogue sensors.
Monitoring data in Real-Time via the DT82E's built-in web sever and DataTaker's new online DEX software can be easily achieved. Custom software can also be written by any Software developer to suit your specific requirements. DataTaker have freely available resource tools and drivers for Labview™ and Active X.
Remote data transfer
Remote data transfer via TCP/IP across a Local Area Network(LAN) or Wide Area Network (WAN) is a great way to access data remotely. The DT82E can be connected to just about any ADSL, Cable or 3G (NextG) modem with a TCP/IP network connection allowing the the DT82E to be viewed anywhere around the world over the internet. A Virtual Private Network(VPN) also can be set up for data security if required. File Transfer Protocol(FTP) is an easy way to send data back to your web server or sever in the office. The DT80 can be configured to send data at a set time interval or when an event happens.
The built in RS232 port on the DT82E can support PSTN or GSM modems for remote dial-in and dial-out or SMS Text messages and can be sent via the SMSX GSM modem.
Manual data transfer
Manual data transfer is simple with the DT82E, all you need is a USB memory stick and you're set to go. The data file can be in a binary format to protect your data or CSV which can be open directly in Open Office or MS Excel.
Analyse your data
DataTaker now supplies a copy of the popular DPlot software program with every new DT82E. DPlot and DataTaker have produced a customer plug-in that allows DataTaker binary files to open directly with DPlot for analysing.
A complete kit
The DataTaker DT82E includes all the standard accessories to get you going right away. One great advantage with the DT82E is that the software is built into the unit removing the hassle of installing separate software. Other traditional software tools are available on CD or they can also be downloaded from the DataTaker website along with any firmware and software updates.

With the DT82E being base on the mature DT80 platform, it has adopted the maturity and over four years of refinement of the DT80. So if you need low channel count or remote stand alone low powered data logger with a difference, then the DT82E data logger from DataTaker is well worth a look.
