CAS DataLoggers recently provided the data logging solution for a major airport group based in the UK whose fluid run-off threatened to endanger aquatic ecosystems located near the airports. The commercial airline needed an online device capable of monitoring toxic discharges into local rivers. The airline routinely sprayed de-icers and anti-icers onto their aircraft before taking off during icy conditions as mandated by Federal Aviation Administration guidelines. Between 100 and several thousand gallons of de-icing fluid was used per aircraft application. While a portion of the fluid stuck to the planes, approximately 75% to 80% of the treatment would flow into the surrounding environment as run-off. Learn more…

Kinnerton Confectionary in Fakenham, Norfolk (UK), with production lines producing millions of Easter eggs, chocolate lollipops, truffles, and chocolate cartoon characters for its own label and other household brands. Critical to all their chocolate products was the cooling process operating in the ‘cooling tunnel’, inside of which a delicate balance was maintained between the temperature, relative humidity (RH) and the airflow. To give their chocolate the right gloss and a maximum shelf life, CAS DataLogger had to determine the monitoring system that would ensure the cooling profile for each product was maintained. This often proved difficult when technicians had to account for the ambient outside temperature and relative humidity, both of which could change several times during the day from April to the end of September as the local weather fluctuated violently. An effective data logging solution was needed to address these vital concerns. Continue Reading…
An Alaskan railroad company had been experiencing problems stemming from vibration
in the railroad car wheels. They were aware that when too much heat developed during braking, the wheels could seize and subsequently develop flat spots. Flat spots resulted in vibration; an undesirable condition leading to additional maintenance issues involving their railroad car wheels. The challenge for the staff was to determine how these excessive heat conditions developed as a result of braking over time and the duration of a trip.

CAS DataLoggers introduced a flexible data monitoring system to a rice miller and food processing company that had recently installed a new production line. This line produced various cooked rice products in reheatable and microwaveable polymer sachets. Consequently the data logging system was utilized to monitor the retort cooking and sterilization temperatures as well as the accumulated Fo value (expressing the heating time required for disinfection) during production of its various pouched rice products. The added capability to download the results was also necessary both for analysis and quality purposes. Internal calculation and real-time data collection were crucial customer needs. To learn more …
CAS DataLoggers and Lascar Electronics have partnered to announce the release of the new EL-USB-1-LCD Temperature Data Logger with LCD. This standalone data logger measures and stores up to 16,378 temperature readings over a -35 to +80°C (-31 to +176°F) measurement range. Continue Reading…
The Delphin 64KTM was developed to provide a multi-channel solution for temperature measurement using thermocouples. It provides 64 differential inputs with 110V isolation and galvanic separation prevent measurement errors from ground loops and a 24 bit sigma-delta A/D converter. The Cold Junction reference temperature is measured using a class A, 4-wire RTD enabling an absolute accuracy of 0.2°. Other features include:
- Industrial grade 19″ rack enclosure
- Support for E,J,K,L,N,S,R,T,U thermocouples
- 24 Bit measurement resolution
- 1 GB Internal memory
- Ethernet, Modbus, Profibus interfaces
- Up to 1 GB of local memory
- Expandable to >1000 channels
Typical users are R&D groups and laboratories who need to acquire highly precise temperature measurements. Traditional areas of use are test stations for gas turbines or boilers but the system is also suitable for temperature measurement in ovens, furnaces, heating chambers, temperature controlled enclosures and manufacturing or processing equipment.
The 64KTM is equipped with internal memory for up to 128 million data records. The memory’s independent data recording capability provides data security for long-term measurement runs. Individual channels can be set up with limit values enabling monitoring and alarm functions and calculations including moving averages. The basis version if the 64KTM is set up for 64 channel operation and the modular design enables several units to be connected so that several thousand channels can be processed.

CAS Dataloggers is please to announce the new RTR-500 family of wireless data loggers from TandD Corporation of Japan. These data loggers give you the ability to monitor temperature and humidity virtually anywhere via a built in GSM/GPRS Cellular Modem in the RTR-500GSM base station. The individual loggers communicate with the base station via a high speed short range 900 MHz wireless network. Then, data and alarms are automatically sent from the base station via email or ftp via the standard cell phone network.
The RTR-500 family currently includes:
- RTR-500 USB Base Station/Repeater
- RTR-500GSM Base Station with GSM/GPRS modem
- RTR-501 Temperature Data Logger with internal sensor
- RTR-502 Temperature Data Logger with external sensor
- RTR-503 Temperature and Humidity Data Logger
They offer improved performance over the current RTR-5 series including increased short range wireless range (up to 500 feet), faster download speed and longer battery life, (up to 4 years in the high capacity models).
The new RTR-500GSM Cellular Base Station is the heart of the system. It can automatically download data from up to 20 individual data loggers. The base station also provides real-time monitoring of the data loggers for alarm conditions and can then send the alarm notification via email or SMS. The RTR-500GSM can be powered from an external 8-34 VDC source and features an internal battery backup. It also provides a set of alarm contacts for local notification. An optional GPS can be attached to the RTR-500GSM for location tracking. A new software set-up wizard simplifies the GSM network configuration of the base station.
The RTR-500 family is ideal for monitoring temperature and humidity in locations where LAN connections are not available or practical such as trucks transporting perishable goods, remote storage or warehouse locations and environmental monitoring.
