Low-cost data logger

MadgeTech has released the Pulse101A, a low-cost data logger which senses pulse inputs or contact closures from external sources such as transducers and/or pulse initiators. It can collect as many as 10,000 pulses per second (10KHz) and stores up to 500,000 readings (totalized pulse counts) in its non-volatile memory. The Pulse101A features a 10 year battery life, and a manual start/stop that can be executed multiple times without the need to download data in between studies.

The Pulse101A is commonly used to interface with contact closures from flow meters, power meters, anemometer's and other dry contact closures. With programmable engineering units available, users have the ability to convert data into a variety of units, such as gallons per minute, Kilowatt hours, or wind speed. This unique option enables the user to easily linearize and scale most any transducer that provides a pulse or contact closure output into the required units.

The MadgeTech software effortlessly shows statistical information based upon the type of unit stored within the device. If additional analysis is necessary, data can be easily exported to an MS Excel® spreadsheet for further review.
