Growing Trends in Data Logging Capabilities
Recently the market has seen an increased interest in smaller models of battery-powered data loggers featuring wireless communications interfaces. These convenient systems rely on proprietary wireless protocols to provide the best mix of range and battery life, often lasting a full year or more. Data can be sent to a handheld receiver, PC or a network-connected collector.
Another rising trend is the market's move toward building more functionality and intelligence into network-connected data loggers. The newest models of dataloggers offer built-in Ethernet interfaces for easy integration into the network along with FTP and web servers for enhanced communication.
This white paper discusses how advanced, new dataloggers are increasing communications options.
