e018 DA18K

Multifunction datalogger with WinCE embedded

DA18K has been carefully designed for environmental and meteo-hydrological monitoring systems. Sensors, analyzers, chemical-physical probes, and many others can be easily connected to DA18K by means of a wide variety of analogic and digital communication interfaces. Futhermore, the datalogger is equipped with serial and LAN ports that allow to interconnect communication systems such as radio-modems in free or licensed band (UHF, VHF, HF, SRD, ...), GPRS modem, UMTS, LTE, router, satellite equipment (Iridium, Inmarsat, Meteosat, Goes, ..), and wired lines for remote connection.
DA18K is a forefront datalogger with very low power consumption, produced in Italy, and equipped with Modbus RTU communication protocol and Windows CE operating system. It is an extremely precise, robust and highly durable device, and it is suitable to be installed at any latitude, longitude and weather condition, from -40 °C to +80 °C, in every environment from the dry African deserts for example, to the wet and rainy Amazon Forest. The device is supplied with the DAK configuration wizard software, but it has been possible also to program customized applications using available open libraries, functions and / or specific procedures for the interoperability with third-party systems.
The large number of interface ports makes DA18K a very flexible and modular datalogger, suitable for the inter-connection of any sort of monitoring sensors, communication systems, or high-level interfaces (for example: PLC, PC).

DA18K Data Logger advantages
  • High modularity: easy to configure for each specific application; management of a large number of instruments (analysers, sensors, etc.) and elaborations.
  • Automatic stand-by system for energy saving.
  • Windows CE® embedded Operating System: it ensures compatibility with most widespread network standards (TCP/IP, FTP, SMTP, POP3, HTTP, etc.) and interfaces (Ethernet, USB, ecc.).
  • High flexibility of interconnection with sensors through RS485, RS232, SDI-12, 1-Wire, CAN-Bus.
  • Development environment: Visual Studio (Visual C++).
  • Remote control (firmware and configuration upgrading).
  • Wide data storage and capacity.
