Lascar Electronics Inc.: Temperature Data Logging Sensor
A thermocouple version of the EL-WiFi Series of remote data loggers is available. Supplied with a K-type probe, the EL-WiFi-TC has a measurement range of 0 to 400°C (32 to 752°F), accuracy of ±1.5°C, and display resolution of 0.1°C/F. The sensor can accept user-selected J-, K-, N-, and T-type thermocouples via its onboard mini thermocouple connector, increasing the potential measurement range to -270 to 1,300°C (454 to 2,372°F). During initial configuration, the sensor will search for an existing wireless network while physically connected to the PC via USB cable. Once connected, the user can use the software to name the sensor, select sample rates, and set high and low alarms. It can then be unplugged and placed anywhere within range of the Wi-Fi network. All future configuration of the unit can be done remotely. Alarm breaches are transmitted instantly to the PC with both visible and audible cues irrespective of the transmit rate chosen. The unit also protects users from Wi-Fi outage by storing data onboard if the Wi-Fi network is disrupted.
