The DI-2160 USB Event Data Logger is the next generation of DI-160, with eight 1MΩ impedance input channels.

The DI-2160 features programmable capture modes to detect events (when the events happen), states (how long between events) and counts (how many events). An internal real time clock provides time and date stamping for each captured quantity, and storage is accomplished to a removable USB thumb drive. Data storage format is comma-separated value (CSV) so recorded files are human-readable and easily imported to other applications like Microsoft Excel.

The unit is to be powered by an AC adaptor (included), and SuperCap technology is employed to close file properly during sudden power loss. Please note, SuperCap can't support continuous recording and the last unfinished interval will be lost, UPS is needed if non-stop operation is desired.

HS Counter Operation: Used whenever the need exists to account for and totalize each pulse that occurs within a sample interval
AC Counter Operation: Optimized for 50/60 Hz power line frequencies. Designed to ignore power line transitions and to change state only when power is removed or applied.
State Operation
Operation: Determines the DURATION of an event.
Records the state that exists upon termination of a sample interval.
Event Operation
Operation: Determines WHEN an event occurred, but does not yield the duration of the event.
Records a single time-stamped data point when one or more events occur within a definable interval.
Min capture event pulse width: > 200 µs
