Data logger  

The AOIP FD5 data logger features a wide variety of applications, including temperature monitoring. Equipped with 5, 10, and 15 universal synchronized channels, the new generation of (470-Hz/channel) modules can be used in the field as a stand-alone system or on test benches. A Web-based server concept is used, and all necessary configuration and management software are embedded into the unit for a plug-and-play design. The Web server interface enables real-time and remote control of the data acquisition, including setup, start, result display, monitoring, and data exportation functions. As stand-alone modules, the loggers have embedded flash memory that can be expanded with an SD card slot and USB drive slots. Wahl Instruments Inc. (Asheville, N.C.). 


The CS615 conductivity sensor monitors process fluids for changes within critical parameters. The Type 316 stainless steel construction withstands both clean-in-place and steam sterilization processes up to 130°C. Two models are available for 1-, 1.5-, and 2-in. triclamp flanges. The Pt1000, Pt100, or user-specified values are available. Cell constants offered are 0.01, 0.1, and 1.0, which provide the sensors a wide measurement range in most applications, from pure water to general industrial use. The sensors come with a 10-ft cable and tinned wire terminations for connection to process-monitoring instrumentation. Sensorex (Garden Grove, Calif.). 



The OSTW-CCseries ofthermocouple connectors is designed for fast and easy connection of cable or wire via a thermocouple-cable clamp assembly. The cap/clamp contains the four captive screws and eliminates the loose screws typical with a traditional metal thermocouple-cable clamp. Included are a metal back-plate clamp, strain relief, and grommets. To greatly reduce assembly time, use part No. OST-CC-TOOL assembly tool holding fixture with the connector and integral cable clamp to connect thermocouple wire or cable. Omega (Stamford, Conn.).
