April 5, 2017 - CAS DataLoggers together with Grant Instruments has released the Squirrel SQ2020 series data loggers. These data loggers feature a fully-configurable graphical LCD display.
These universal-input data loggers take precise readings over a range of different measurements. Squirrel data loggers can also operate ‘standalone’ without a PC, and include setup software with graphing capabilities for data analysis.
Grant Squirrel series data loggers are designed to make it easy to log engine temperature or additional types of data on the factory floor. The SQ2020 data logger can measure several different values including Temperature, Current/Voltage, Resistance, and more.
Squirrel loggers feature multiple 24-bit ADCs for precise measurements. Squirrels are ideal for demanding applications, able to record up to 100 readings per second on two channels (SQ2020 2F8 model). Twin processors, up to 16 universal channels, and a choice of communications methods ensure that the Squirrel 2020 series is an out-of-the-box solution.
For example, a Grant data logger can record and store readings from thermocouples to measure temperatures at multiple locations in an engine, cooling system and radiator, monitoring inlet and outlet temperatures as well as the ambient temperature.
The Squirrel series is available in 3 configurations:
- SQ2020-1F8 8/16-channel logger,
- SQ2020-2F8 high-speed model,
- SQ2020-2F8 WiFi wireless data logger.
The handheld SQ2020s are powered from internal cells or an external power supply connection. Each Grant data logger features 8 to 16 universal analog inputs and 8 digital inputs, along with 4 pulse rate/counter inputs. 4 alarm outputs notify users whenever measurement values go out of specification.
The SQ2020s are configurable via integral interface or PC and offer both USB and RS232 connectivity. The loggers also offer up to two million points of internal data storage and utilize a removable MMC/SD card.
SQ2020 series data loggers include a graphical LCD screen with clear and simple navigation, fully configurable via the integrated four-button keypad. Grant loggers can be configured on the factory floor or in the field without needing to connect to a PC or laptop.
Grant Squirrel data loggers also include free SquirrelView configuration and analysis software. SquirrelView’s spreadsheet-style interface allows quick set-up of the data logger for any application. Users can also directly export stored data to their chosen PC- based application such as Excel.
The optional SquirrelView Plus adds graphical data analysis and advanced reporting options.
