The new LogMessage 5000 Data Logger offers cost-effective solutions for a wide range of data acquisition projects. The LM5000 enables data acquisition from 16 differential analog inputs with galvanic isolation of up to 650 V dc. This system is part of the upgraded LogMessage 1000-9000 series replacing the bestselling LogMessage x00 line. Offering secure data acquisition via universal inputs with stand alone capability, this new series is ideal for a wide range of industrial applications including PC-independent measurement and testing, product testing, laboratory, R&D, temperature data acquisition, fault diagnostics at machines/plants, GPS data logging/remote monitoring and many more.
The LM5000 is a high-speed datalogger with sampling rates of up to 80 measurements per second and an intuitive function for users to configure inputs, save data, and display data as trends. Analog inputs can be separately configured, and any type of thermocouple can be used for temperature measurement. Equipped with linearization curves, all thermocouple types has pre-installed reference points so that any thermocouple can be connected and used immediately, giving users a quick start to their projects.
New improvements to the series include four serial interfaces, up to 16 GB of local memory, an Ethernet interface, and extensive functionality. These devices are precision instruments that feature universal sensor connection, which can be switched via software to function with any type of sensor. Pt100 and Pt1000 sensors can be fed directly from the device via a 4-wire connection. Analog inputs can be used to also measure mA or mV signals. Scaling is performed immediately according to the required measurement unit.
Additionally, data can be transferred online to a PC via the LogMessage 5000 LAN interface. The LAN interface is galvanically isolated just as the power supply and all other interfaces—by up to 1000 V dc. LogMessage devices are fully protected against earth loops enabling measurements from non-isolated sources. All analog inputs can function as differential inputs.
The LogMessage 5000 is equipped with a standard data storage capacity of up to 250 million measurement records (expandable to 1 billion).
