The Data Logger is also suitable for other field and laboratory measurements. The TORRENS Data Logger is Australian designed and manufactured. Features of this device include: :1: Up to 24 Recording Channels. * 4 Recording modes: - Event - Periodic - Significant Event - Regression Line. * Up to 24 Input Transducers. * Wide range of scale factors and offsets for transducer calibration - range +j- 99999.9999. * '. Programmable outputs for driving other equipment e.g. water samplers, pumps or control valves. * Data Storage Modules may be EPROM 0[' RAM. * On board AjD converter enables data logger battery voltage to be accurately measured locally or remotely. :, Solar powered with battery back up. IP56 or Optional IP67 Environmental enclosure. Military Specified Environmental connectors as standard, other customer specified connectors available upon request I Menu driven prompts from data logger - no cryptic code to progra~ and retrieve data. I Data Storage formaL directly supported by HVDSYS software . The basic unit is an investment in productivity. * Modem interface option permits: _ Remote interrogation via Field Test Unit or computer _ Voice synthesis reporting of rainfall, rainfall rate, water level, battery voltage and three user chosen transducers - Auto dial out on the following conditions:(al channel point logged to Data Storage Module (bi channel data going outside a Hi-La range _ 6 character password can be programmed for modem security access _ Dial out times can be limited to certain hours _ Control code commands for polling systems. * 16 bit resolution four channel analog card option. * Satellite interface option enables use of the ARGOS Satellite System. Systems Design Services Designed the TORRENS Data Logger to meet the <;urrent and future requirements of Water Resources measurement. We offer a complete system from Data Loggers, Transducers, Data Retrieval and Data Editing to final analysis stage. The Data Logger already supports a wide range of transducers. I f howeve:~ your requi rements demand a di fferent transducer type, in most cases Systems Design Services can adapt their general interface to suit.
