GL980 Data Logger

Quick Overview

The GL980 is an 8 channel standalone data logger suitable for voltage and true RMS measurement. Analogue inputs are also suitable for use with K, J, E, T, R, S, B, N and W Type Thermocouples, 0-500V or Humidity (via B-530 sensor). The GL980 comes with a wide 7" wide TFT colour LCD with waveform or digital options. Internal RAM allows for up to 4 million readings per channel and SD card slot allows for up to 4GB memory cards. Built-in USB port allows data transfer to a PC or laptop and Ethernet port allows for connection to a LAN. The GL980 also allows FTP server functions and NTP synchronization with the Ethernet or WLAN ports. Emails may also be sent to send information when alarms occur, or alerts for power, comms or memory issues.
