There are many applications where one needs to log voltage, temperature or power consumption. Examples of these are monitoring the power usage of an appliance such as a fridge or logging the current consumption of an electronic device over an extended period of time in order to calculate realistic battery lifetime. To fill this need K Measure added 2 data loggers to its range of data loggers:
The VA602-V1-A1 can measure, display and log DC voltage from 0 - 10V with an accuracy of 20mV and DC current from 0 - 24mA with an accuracy of 50uA.
The VA602-V2-A2 can measure, display and log AC voltage from 0 - 600V with an accuracy of 1V, and together with a current clamp, also AC current from 0 - 24mA with an accuracy of 1%.
Other features are a build-in battery that is charged via the USB port and enough memory and battery capacity to last 3 years (when recording a measurement every hour). The display can show the real-time, minimum or maximum values, they have configurable alarms and the alarms can be used to start recording. They also come with an IP45 rating, magnetic mounting and very easy-to-use software (can be set up in less than 5 minutes).
