It is expected that damage to these connectors will readily occur in the field, particulary to the "male" ends attached to the transducers. tii) Torn'Ds Data Logger. The standard package consists of inputs for a shaft encoder, rain gauge and trickle charge from a solar panel. The logger is based on a modular concept whereby various options may be attached readily by the inclusion of the appropriate "card". This concept is extended to the data storage "card" on a non-volitile EEPROM which can be rerr.oved for office interrogation when serviced. The four analogue inputs required for the pressure transducers for this project were therefore optioned by the appropriate card (at addi tional cosi:). relay activation. There is facility for modern attachment and The software is menu driven and communication is facilitated via the serial port of a computer. The versitility offered by this logger however, also creates complications in its use and set up procedures. A high degree of familiarity is required with the logger in selecting appropriate paths and options. The menu was developed for communication upgraded to computers. , .. i th small hand held computers and needs c,dvantage the full screen offered by to be laptop The connection with the transducers is via 10 pin military expensive should be specification "cannon" but can be obtained from plugs. These plugs are a number of sources. They adequate for all intended purposes. This logger meets test pumping requirements in terms of features and logging capabilities. However, the unit is large compa.red to the Mindata logger and intended for permanent installation. There is a potential for problems to develop "lith the "card rack" if transported frequently. Unlike the Hindata logger, there are no problems associated with complete power-down of the unit in terms of
