The dataTaker DT85M is a robust, stand alone, ultra low powerdata logger with an integrated 2G/3G modem that allows it to beused across a wide variety of remote applications.
The days of travelling long distances to get your data are over.The DT85M's automatic data delivery features allow you to scheduleyour data to be automatically emailed to your inbox every day,week, month or other time interval. More sophisticated systems canmake use of the automatic data delivery features to send loggeddata to a FTP server.
Alarm conditions can also trigger data delivery or alarmmessages to multiple email addresses or mobile phones.
Mobile network outages can occur at any time and can last forminutes or days, however dataTaker have gone to great lengths toensure the reliability of data transmissions. The DT85M canrecognise incomplete downloads and will try again until the entiredata file is transmitted, ensuring no lost data. If the networkdrops your logger, the modem automatically reconnects before thenext scheduled transmission.
If the mobile network has marginal coverage, the DT85M can scanfor alternative networks and select the strongest signal.
The DT85M is configured directly in your web browser usingdatataTaker's dEX graphical interface. dEX takes you through theconfiguration of your logger, showing you wiring diagrams andallowing you to decide - in as much or as little detail - how youwant the system to work, suiting both novice and advancedusers.
Using the internal modem you can even re-configure your systemremotely over the internet if required.
16 analog input channels (expandable to 320*)
Each channel is independent and supports: one isolated
3 wire or 4-wire input, or two isolated 2-wire inputs, or
three common referenced 2-wire inputs.
The following maximums apply:
Two wire with common reference terminal: 48 (expandable
Two wire isolated: 32 (expandable to 640)*
Three and four wire isolated: 16 (expandable to 320)
*Expansion requires optional CEM20.
Fundamental Input Ranges
The fundamental inputs that the DT85M can measure
are voltage, current, resistance and frequency. All other
measurements are derived from these.
Auto-ranging is supported over 3 ranges
