DATAQ Instruments Application Notes and News

EL-USB Series Data Loggers and Calibration

Data Logger > Lascar Recently, there’s been some confusion when it comes to calibration and EL series temperature data loggers. The fact that we offer a NIST traceable calibration certificate (sold separately) has led some to believe that a certificate must be purchased in order for the logger to be calibrated. On the contrary, EL Read More

NEW Wireless Data Logger for Temperature Measurements

Data Logger > Wireless NEW Wireless Data Logger EL-WiFi-T Measures Temperature from -20 to +60°C (-4 to +140°F) DATAQ is proud to announce the release of the latest EL-WiFi Data Logger, a low-cost series of data loggers that feature wireless communication to any PC over just about any wireless network (802.11b-compliant). Each wireless data logger Read More

An Overview of the All-New GL7000

Data Logger > Graphtec > GL7000 The GL7000 is a modular data acquisition system, configurable for a wide array of industrial applications. The unit is well constructed and has a solid feel. The base unit (without modules) measures 7.60”W x 5.55”H x 6.30”D and weighs in at approximately 4.9 pounds.   Expansion modules (at least Read More

Nothing is Found in the DATAQ IP Manager When Attempting to Run WinDaq with a DI-720/730 Ethernet Instrument

Data Acquisition > Ethernet In the last few months, a number of customers have reported that their DI-720/730 Ethernet instruments were no longer appearing in the DATAQ Instruments IP Manager. In fact, nothing appears at all, not even a Synced or Un-Synced group. Following some investigation here at DATAQ, it became apparent that a Windows Read More

Thermocouple Data Logger Features Touch Display

Data Logger > Thermocouple > EL-EnviroPad-TC New EL-EnviroPad-TC Thermocouple Data Logger DATAQ Instruments is proud to release model EL-EnviroPad-TC, a thermocouple data logger that features battery operation, a huge data storage memory, and a built-in touch-sensitive color display. Designed for on-the-go measurements, the EL-EnviroPad-TC supports both snap-shot and long term data logger operating modes. Compatible Read More

PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) Product Preview

Data Acquisition > PLC > < href="">DI-159 PLC We’ve all been there: An application that needs to acquire data AND apply an element of control. Maybe it was a simple test against a limit threshold to set a digital output port. Maybe it was more complex like exerting control over an external process or test Read More

Jumping a DI-5B Module Socket

Data Acquisition > Mixed Measurements Use these pass-through connections to jumper a module socket so the channel passes through to the instrument: Connect "I/O Common" to "-In" Connect "Vout" to "+In"  Follow Us

Scaling Non-Zero Offsets With WINDAQ Software

Data Acquisition > Software > WinDaq It wouldn’t be unreasonable to assume that a transducer, at a resting state, would output zero volts. In reality, this is rarely the case. Fortunately, features in WinDaq allow you to scale non-zero offsets. Using real-world examples, our updated application note on the subject shows you how to factor in DC offsets Read More

Strain Gage-Based Transducer and Amplifier Selection and Calibration

Data Acquisition > Mixed Measurements Check out our updated application note on the selection and calibration of amplifiers for strain-gage based transducers. This is an in-depth guide to selecting a transducer/amplifier combination based on supply voltage (excitation) requirements and the sensitivity (gage factor) of both the transducer and amplifier. Scaling to display engineering units (lbs, psi, etc.) using Read More

Using the HMP60 Temperature and Humidity Sensor with a DI-718B, DI-718Bx or DI-788 and a DI-8B43 Amplifier

Data Acquisition > Temperature and Humidity > HMP60 For years, the HMP60 Temperature and Humidity sensor was used primarily with DI-710 series instruments. The DI-710 was (and still is) able to provide the necessary supply voltage (5 to 28VDC) and acquire both 0 to 2.5VDC outputs (-40 to 60°C and 0-100% RH). With the recent Read More
