Industrologic, Inc., announces the release of their PDAS-LITE Data Logger.
The Industrologic PDAS-LITE is a ruggedized, self-contained microcontroller based data logger designed for parachute air drop testing, and having numerous other applications where a rugged and portable data logger is required.
It features 2 channels of 12 bit resolution 0 to 5 volt DC analog input and 1 logic level Event input, plus an alternate configuration to asynchronously record the serial data stream from the serial port at a selected baud rate.
The analog sample rate is selectable from 1 to 100 samples per second for 1 or 2 channels, and its 128K bytes of non-volatile memory can be used for storage of setup parameters, and for data from 2 analog channels and one logic level event signal for over 5 1/2 minutes at 100 HZ.
The PDAS-LITE unit can be powered by a common 9 volt alkaline battery or by external power through the power connector. Its front panel includes a battery power switch, a pushbutton start/stop recording switch, and an LED status indicator.
Included with the PDAS-LITE is software that runs on IBM PC equivalent computers that can use the unit's on-board menu to configure it for recording, as well as conveniently download the stored data, and graph the voltages for quick verification of collected data. Analog and Event data can be downloaded as "space delimited" ASCII text, suitable for importing into a variety of programs such as data analysis programs and spreadsheets, or in a binary format for faster downloading and conversion.
The PDAS-LITE is enclosed in a rugged ABS plastic enclosure which measures 4.4" by 2.6" by 1.1", and includes a battery compartment that can be accessed without opening the entire unit.
