USB temperature logger

Industrial test equipment supplier Computer Aided Solutions has a new USB (Universal Serial Bus) temperature logger for monitoring applications in the lab as well as in manufacturing and process control. Dubbed the Grant OQ610, it's a six-channel battery-powered instrument that can accommodate a wide range of K-type and T-type thermocouple probes.

In use, you'd power up the logger, connect your desired thermocouples, and make readings. The logger automatically detects when sensors are connected. The OQ610 temp logger can also be configured to automatically start and stop logging on pre-set time or temperature levels. It can log up to eight readings.

PC-less connection
The logger uses USB communications for fast PC communications and direct connection to a USB printer. Significantly, you don't need to connect it to a PC. It can print immediate reports without one. The logger can be set up using three buttons or from a PC.

The OQ610 is supplied with SquirrelView software. It's an application for configuring, downloading, displaying and analyzing the logger's data. SquirrelView can also automatically calculate cure times when needed in applications using conveyor ovens. It can also export the data in a text file suitable for display in Excel or other third-party applications.

The OQ610 is also available as part of an OMK610 oven monitoring kit. This kit includes the OQ610 logger, four temperature probes, a thermal barrier, Paintview software optimized for paint curing applications, a carrying case, and a USB communication cable.

Pricing starts at less than $1,400.
