The Datum-y XL100 portable data logger from Yokogawa has a range of communications capabilities, and is touted by the company to be the world's first measuring instrument to support the IPv6 (Internet Protocol Version 6) logo.

Measuring 155-by-56-by-155mm and weighing around 800g, the instrument is suited to field service and maintenance applications. It features a large TFT-LCD display with a wide viewing angle, and offers up to eight hours of continuous operation from its rechargeable battery.

The XL100 has serial and parallel communications interfaces, including USB, Ethernet, IEEE-488/GPIB, RS-485 and RS-232. It can function as a Web server or FTP server or client, and also features an e-mail delivery function.

The unit has 16MB of internal memory, and additional storage can be provided by CF or SD memory cards or by a USB memory stick. External memory can be used to provide auto-set and auto-run functions.

A universal input makes the XL100 suitable for a range of measurements, including DC voltage up to 30V, all common thermocouples and RTD temperature sensors, and pulse and logic signals. The instrument is available in 8-channel and 16-channel versions. Minimum sampling time is 100ms on eight channels and 200ms on 16 channels, and can be set at a number of values up to a maximum of one hour. Alarm and trigger functions are included, and data can be manipulated using differential computation, linear scaling and statistical calculations.

The XL100 can be used in conjunction with clamp-on power meters and luminance meters for electrical or optical measurements, and a rubber boot is available for increased impact resistance and environmental protection.
