Lascar Electronics has launched its next generation USB data logging line, the EL-GFX series. The EL-GFX units are standalone temperature and humidity data loggers featuring a high-contrast graphic LCD displaying real-time analysis of readings either as a data summary (showing highest and lowest readings, last log and alarm conditions) or as a trend graph that updates as new data is added. Each unit in the range is capable of storing over 250,000 readings per channel and can be powered by battery or from a wall socket. They come supplied with a magnetic clip - allowing wall or refrigerator mounting - and a waterproof USB connector cover, and can all be configured using Lascar’s free EL-WIN-USB software.
The EL-GFX series includes three different models. The EL-GFX-1 is a temperature only USB data logger with a measurement range of -30 to +80°C (-22 to +176°F) at resolution of 0.1°C/°F. The EL-GFX-2 measures temperature and humidity readings over a -30 to +80°C (-22 to +176°F) and 0 to 100%RH range at a resolution of 0.1°C/°F and 0.1%RH. Lastly, the EL-GFX-DTC is a dual channel thermocouple logger measuring and storing readings from two J, K, or T-type inputs at a resolution of 0.1°C/°F. Two K-type probes are supplied with the units as standard with a 0 to +400°C (+32 to +752°F) range. All three models are supplied with Lascar’s free, downloadable configuration software, EL-WIN-USB, allowing the user to name the unit, select °C or °F measurement, set high and low alarms and determine logger start time. Multiple data logging sessions can be stored on the device ready for upload to a PC via micro USB cable at a later date.
