Some bugs but does the job.

On occasion will not initialize. I have to reconnect to Instacal and reload parameters. Data logger is located away from the Instacal computer which necessitates the removal of the thermocouples from the UUT and then reconnect to Instacal to somehow reset the data logger. Then it seems to work. I have had to repeat this process several times.

Very easy to set up

Bought the product for lab application about 4 months ago. Set it up very easily and have been using it well. The software, however, is a little bit difficult for first time user. I spent quite some time to figure it out. The attached manual should be more instructive. Overall very good experience and I give it 4 stars.

Can the data logger be connected to a computer while operating to see temperatures as they are recorded?

Answers

Due to data processing limitations, logging data to the CompactFlash card is not permitted while connected to a USB port.

I know it may sound silly, but does the temperature of the data logger affect the results. I have a requirement to monitor a tub of water which will have a heat source in it. The tub will be placed in a temperature chamber to try to maintain temp. So if t

Answers

Hello TheCaliforniaAlligator, Yes, it will function properly as long as the USB-5201 is kept within its environmental specifications and the operating range is within 0-70C and the humidity is between 0-90% (non condensing).

Answers

The USB-5200 series’ autonomous logging mode can only be configured with InstaCal. i.e. LabVIEW cannot configure the logger to log data to its memory card, and there is no LabVIEW support for reading the data from the card. If you leave the USB-5200 device connected to the PC, it can be used in non-autonomous mode (much like a USB-TEMP/TC) in LabVIEW by using our ULx driver. Please feel free to contact us if you have any additional questions.
