Hi, Thank you for your questions. The ADC-11 does normally only measure voltage in the range 0-2.5volts. However, there are different number of specials, but if you went for the ADC-11 special that can measure -2.5 to +2.5 volts then in the QBasic example you would need to change the ADC count to vo...

Hi, Thank you for your email. Unfortunately, having a cable of 150 metres of PT100 cable might increase the noise sufficiently to give inaccurate temperature readings. A possible solution to this would be to use the Enviromon system with the EL041 and thermocouples. The EL041 can be placed closer to...

Hi, Thank you for your post. It is possible to measure 4-20mA with our equipment. This can be achieved by using a shunt resistor between gnd and channel. The software can the use scaling files to convert it to a pressure unit. I would recommend that you look at the ADC-11/12, this is an 11 channel u...

Hi, Thank you for your request. A possible solution would be to use a frequency to voltage converter, with the EL037, as most flow meters us frequency to give the flow rate. However, the Enviormon System records a sample every minute so it probably, would not be suitable for fast changes is flow, bu...

Hi, Thank you for your post. I believe that the units you would need to measure 2 x temperature, humidity, light and door is the TH-03 and RH-02. The TH-03 has three channels and therefore you can use this for one temperature, light and door switch. To get the other temperature and humidity this wil...
