CLEVELAND - Aug. 15, 2019 - PRLog -- Log it All with dataTaker!

Whether startups or large manufacturers, companies have come to rely on data logging for system validation and proof of scale for prototype devices. dataTaker Universal data loggers can record almost any measurement value, making them ideal for performance monitoring and device component monitoring. These versatile loggers accept connection from many different sensor types. Whether you need to record electrical, environmental, weather data or solar monitoring dataTaker will log it all!

Recording Data for Proof of Scale

Last year CAS DataLoggers provided the device and solar monitoring solution for Sulas Industries (, a solar energy startup that has patented an innovative passive solar tracking device that works without using any motors, gears or electronics. Sulas is using a dataTaker DT85 Universal Data Logger which has since been installed, configured and connected to a wide range of sensors.

Sulas Industries Founder Fin Doyle explains: "When you're planning a new process, you know you need to gather enough data–all the information benefits your company in a multitude of ways. We're using the dataTaker for our multi-value data collection and process validation."

The Sulas team is using three thermocouple temperature sensors measuring ambient air temperature and internal temperature, with another three sensors monitoring the hydraulic cylinder pressure in the device. Meanwhile a pyranometer measures solar radiation while an anemometer measures wind speed and direction. Additional tilt sensors track solar panel angle to the sun.

The dataTaker logger features a maximum of 48 universal analog sensor channels, recording the analog signals from all these sensors and automatically scaling the data into engineering units. The Sulas team has also configured their dataTaker to generate and send out a nightly report containing the last 24 hours of recorded data.
