Battery or mains operated and easily portable
Configuration and Metering by:
Panel controls and display
Locally connected PC using Darca Software
Remotely connected PC (using Darca Software) via GSM, landline or radio modem
Measure up to 124 analogue or digital channels, such as temperature, humidity, pressure, voltage, resistance, current or any other suitable sensor output

PC Card slot option provides extra memory
Readings can be scaled into appropriate units (e.g. m/sec, p.p.m.)
Low power consumption for long term unattended use or portable operation
Customised firmware for specialised requirements
LAN Network adaptor for Ethernet connection
Highly accurate: ±(0.1% of reading, +0.2% of range span)
12 bit resolution
Sensor power outputs
1 pulse count channel and 8 event/digital channels in addition to other inputs
External triggers can start and stop the logger
Rapid memory download at 38400 baud
Up to 99 logging "runs" may be stored
3 year guarantee
The basic Squirrel data logger is small and portable and consists of the CPU and battery pack. The CPU contains the processor, memory, power connector, display, RS232 serial connection, a pulse input, an 8 bit digital signal input and output connector.
Typically up to eight input modules can be connected to the CPU with the cumulative total of inputs typically limited to 124. A variable height case, modular in concept, optimises the case size for the number of boards installed. Versions in excess of the typical limits just mentioned can be considered. Please contact Eltek to discuss these.
We are continually developing new input modules to increase the scope of the Squirrel data logger range.
If you are unable to locate the model or module that meets your requirements then please contact us - remember we specialise in customisation and are therefore ideally resourced to design and manufacture combinations not readily available from other suppliers and possibly unique to your application.
The logger is fitted as standard with 250K of memory, backed up by a lithium battery, and at least 250,000 locations are available for data storage. Note that this refers to data storage, not bytes, as 2 bytes of conventional memory are used for every reading. Extra memory is available, modules for 520K, 1,040K and 2,080K readings are available
Serial data input
Many instruments are manufactured for instantaneous measurements (such as balances) and provide an RS232 output. This can be connected to the Squirrel data logger for recording. The Squirrel is equipped with two RS232 serial ports (part of the CPU) - one for the connection to the PC and the second for connection to devices providing an RS232 output. Refer to Omni Instruments for use of the second RS232 port as specific firmware will be required.
