System 5000 Modular Data Acquisition System
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.

•Analogue/Digital expansion module
