System 5000 Modular Data Acquisition System

If you cannot find the part number in the documentation please provide detail. Specific to this item, it could include part number or application detail, (ex. 20 meters of cable, or 20 litres of volume)

The WaterLOG® System 5000™ is a modular data acquisition system designed for remote battery powered operation. Plug-in modules allow the data logger to be configured for a wide variety of monitoring, data logging and SCADA applications.

The System 5000 can also be connected to a computer via USB and act as a mass storage device. Logged data can be retrieved by using an SD card or USB thumb drive.

The System 5000 takes a new approach to data logging. During set-up, measurement parameters (Tasks) are assigned logical names such as WindSpeed or WaterDepth. Each named parameter is then assigned to a source such as an SDI-12 sensor or an A/D channel. Next, each named parameter is assigned to one or more outputs such as a log file, GOES radio or 4-20mA.

Logged data can be retrieved by using an SD card or USB thumb drive. The System 5000 can also be connected to a computer via USB and act as a mass storage device. Simply drag and drop the data files you want.

The plug-in option modules currently include:

•Analogue/Digital expansion module
