Nitriding Process Temperature Trending Using a Data Logger

Industrial Automation in a Single System

Industrial Automation in a Single System

This November CAS DataLoggers supplied the industrial automation solution to Northeast Coating Technologies in Kennebunk, Maine. Engineer Conrad Woodman is using our dataTaker DT80 Intelligent Data Logger to continually monitor NCT’s production Melonite® line, specifically the salt bath area. The dataTaker is recording tank temperature from multiple thermocouples and using these readings to trend the run data to prove best practices to customers.

Data Loggers Automate HVAC Product Testing

Automatic Remote Data Transmission from CAS DataLoggers

Automatic Remote Data Transmission

CAS DataLoggers recently supplied the dataTaker remote monitoring solution at the end of May last year for a product development department in a Californian startup energy company. The business produces refrigerant products for use in several HVAC applications to increase energy efficiency in coolants, air conditioning systems and more. Project Manager Kendall Blair required a device with a built-in display that could automatically send all collected data directly to a remote PC.

CAS DataLoggers Provides the Providers With Server Cabinet Monitoring


Server Monitoring and Alarming Solution

Server Monitoring and Alarming Solution

CAS DataLoggers has just provided the turnkey monitoring/alarming system for an ISP with a large server storage room requiring continual temperature and humidity monitoring at 750 points over wall-length 23″ air-conditioned storage cabinets.  With summer approaching, if any server went down due to a failed AC compressor, the business would only realize it when the calls started coming in. Ideally this would all be done using a single data logger system which could connect to both sensor types. Read more on our Equipment Monitoring Applications Notes page.

All-in-One Test Application Solution from dataTaker

All-in-One Test Application Solution from dataTaker

Test walls form a convenient way to perform product verification for testing appliances from ovens to dishwashers to stoves. Some facilities use specialized test walls of various sizes, holding stacks of units undergoing testing/verification. However, due to the need to test multiple units at once, these applications often demand a high analog channel count. Now CAS DataLoggers has the cost-effective solution for these test setups with the Series 3 dataTaker DT85 Data Logger. Read more on our Equipment Monitoring Applications Notes page.

Performance Verification for a Nursing Home’s Hot Water System

CAS DataLoggers
has provided the performance verification solution for an HVAC provider monitoring the efficiency of its solar collector water heating system installed in a nursing home. A 1,000-gallon heating tank heats up the water to 150°F to provide residents with enough hot water all day. This system saves the home considerable energy costs, and the HVAC company wanted a data logging system to show verification of savings to future customers.

Increasing Safety and Pumping Efficiency in a Crude Oil Refinery

dataTaker Automates Data Collection and Transfer
CHESTERLAND OH—March 5, 2013

thermocouple_loggerCAS DataLoggers recently provided the automated data logging solution for a crude oil refinery which wanted standalone systems for thermocouple measurement in a number of their observation wells. Management stressed that alarming features were important–sudden temperature spikes during crude extraction could cause a rupture, while sudden drops lowered pumping efficiency.

Improving Concrete Testing by Duplicating Real-World Conditions

A large manufacturing technology company contacted CAS DataLoggers after being asked to develop a method for testing the cure and strength of structural concrete in the field. Reproducing real-life curing conditions in a lab would enable the company to accurately estimate the concrete strength faster than possible under conventional methods. For this application, a monitoring and alarming data logger was needed, and remote data communication and transmission were must-have capabilities.

Determining Thermocouple Accuracy on a dataTaker Data Logger

The spec sheets for any of the dataTaker DT8X series of loggers do not contain direct accuracy information on temperature measurements by thermocouple. Instead it offers a voltage accuracy based on the full scale of the voltage being measured. The Applications Specialists at CAS DataLoggers have assembled this brief tech article to show you how to use the voltage output to determine thermocouple accuracy using these versatile universal data loggers.

Monitoring Temperature for Quality Control in Pet Food Production

To ensure that pet food production meets demanding FDA requirements, manufacturers must continually monitor the temperature of their extruding equipment for quality control purposes. A CAS DataLoggers customer was provided with dataTaker DT80 intelligent data loggers to record the data from multiple plants all from their single, corporate location.
