Good morning everyone,
i'm looking for some useful advices in here, and i'm hoping you all can help me out on this one.
The Problem/ Setup:
I need to measure and log the Temperatures of a steel pipe.
I need at least 8 channels for the measuring, better 12 to 16.
The ambient temperature in the area around the pipe - where the recorder has to be - is about 40°C - 45°C (104°F - 113°F). Thinking of this the logger has to be an autonomic one without a pc. (at least for the time it is logging).
Logging Interval should be about 10 days, with a rate of 1S/min or 0,1S/min (= 1S/10 min).
So his memeory capacity should at least be
6 * 24 * 10 = 1440 * 8 channels = 11520 S
60 * 24 * 10 = 14400 * 12 channels =172800 S
The used sensors are thermoelements type k with a range from -50 … +400°C
At the end of the 10 days logging i need to drop the files on my notebook and analyse them. (the best way would be usb)
The software shown for the PicoLog 1216 should make my job a lot easier
I need following logs: time + date and the temperature of each sensor.
at the moment i see following options (correct me pls if i'm wrong):
- tc-08 ; but this one has only 8 channels, and i dont know if its a standalone
- ADC-20 and ADC-24 // PicoLog 1000 ; i dont know if its a standalone, but it has 16 channels (i can connect all grounds so i have single ended sensors)
I hope someone can help me, because as a student i have to admit its a tricky topic
Have a nice day everyone!
(sorry if my english isn't that perfect)
