Datataker DT85 Stand Alone Data Logger

Quick Overview

The Datataker DT85 Series 4 data loggers are a standalone data logger with 16-48 analogue inputs (up to 32 isolated inputs), 12 digital I/Os and 2 serial ports. CEM-20 modules allow the analogue inputs to increase to up to 960 channels. Internal memory for up to 10 million readings, expandable via USB port (approx 90,000 readings per MB. Serial, USB and Ethernet ports available on the DT85 allowing SDI-12, Modbus (Slave and Master), TCP/IP, FTP, HTTP, XML, SMTP or NTP comms. Programmable using internal web server and web browser or command interface window. Dimensions 300 x 137 x 65mm, weight 2.5Kg.

The Smarter Solution

The dataTaker DT85 is a smart data logger that provides an extensive array of features that allow it to be used across a wide variety of applications. The DT85 is a robust, stand alone, low power data logger featuring USB memory stick support, 18 bit resolution, extensive communications capabilities and built-in display. The Datataker DT85’s Dual Channel concept allows up to 32 isolated or 48 common referenced analog inputs to be used in many combinations.

With support for multiple SDI-12 sensor networks, Modbus for SCADA systems, FTP and Web interface, 12V regulated output to power sensors, the DT85 is ready to be rolled out into environmental, industrial and many other types of monitoring projects.

Versatile Measurement

Analog and digital channels, high-speed counter inputs, phase encoder inputs and programmable serial sensor channels allow the DT85 to easily connect to most sensors and data measurement sources. Temperature, voltage, current, 4-20mA loops, resistance, bridges, strain gauges, frequency, digital, serial and calculated measurements can all be scaled, logged and returned in engineering units or within statistical reporting. Group sampling, logging, alarm and control tasks within schedules to suit your requirements. Smart sensors, GPS, PLCs and other intelligent devices are supported via 2 serial sensor ports (RS232 or RS422/485).

Manage a variety of sensors or devices using the Sensor Power options via dedicated power output, digital outputs or the latching relay configurations.

Superior Data Storage and Communications

The standard unit is able to store up to 10 million data points, allowing you to, log as much or as little as you need with independent control of schedule size and mode. Overwrite or stop logging once allocated memory is full. Archive data on alarm event, copy to USB memory or transfer via FTP, the choice is yours.

Communications features include RS232 with modem support, USB, Ethernet and USB memory stick ports. Connect to the DT85 locally, remotely or over the Internet. The web interface allows users to configure the DT85, access logged data and see current measurements as mimics or in a list using a web browser. FTP provides data to your office over the internet or mobile phone network, without the need for polling or specific host software.

dEX 2.0 Data Logger SoftwaredEX Desktop Download

dEX 2.0 is the latest update of the software platform for series 3 & 4 Datataker data loggers. It allows you to configure your sensors easily and manage you logger network in real time. You can edit your code manually to a connected logger or in offline mode, or you can use the intuitive interface to quickly add new loggers or sensors. You can also see your data in real time by setting up mimics. dEX comes in a range of applications so no matter where you are you can see your data and manage your loggers.

Core enhancements

  • A single, centralised page for accessing and managing multiple registered loggers on the network
  • Interoperability: Cross platform (Windows, Linux and macOS)
  • Integration with existing configuration
  • Template creation: Allows you to distribute configuration to multiple loggers
  • Improved mimics for data visualization from single or multiple loggers
  • Hardware simulation

dEX Desktop software can be downloaded by clicking the icon on the right. All of the data loggers main features are accessable through this program, including channel setup, mimic screens and data download.

The software is available as an AIR File and you will need to install Abode Air to install the file. For more information, Click Here.


dEX Datataker Configuration Software

Browser-based Solution

dEX comes pre-installed on every logger in the DT80 range. The software loads in your web browser so there is no need to install cumbersome applications on your computer. Being browser-based, dEX will work on all major operating systems including Windows, Mac and Linux.

Configuration Editor

The configuration editor allows you to view, edit and save logger configurations in an easy-to-use Windows Explorer style user interface. The configuration tree view allows definition of measurement schedules and measurements. Wiring diagrams show available wiring configurations for each sensor type. Configuration can be stored and retrieved on either the logger or a local computer.

Mimics and Charts

Mimics are organised into panels which can be modified to highlight custom alarm conditions or data grouping. Mimics include dials, bar graphs, thermometers, etc. Real-time chart recorder mimic allows you to view trends and historical data over a custom time/date range. Up to 16 mimics can be displayed on up to 5 mimic pages.

System Design

Our experienced engineers can work with you from the start of your project, right to the end by supplying you a pre-wired, out of the box and ready to use system.  We have extensive experience in supplying Datataker data loggers in small to large enclosures, fixed or portable, with pre-wired connectors, terminals and labelling.
