The new infrared sensor with wireless transmitter features a remote IR sensor and radio wireless transmitter in a NEMA enclosure. The miniature sensor head is ideal for measuring temperatures from -18 to 538°C (0 to 1000°F) in confined, hard-to-reach places and harsh environments.
The wireless transmitter is mounted in a NEMA-4 (IP65) plastic enclosure. When activated the unit will transmit readings continuously at pre-set time interval that was programmed by the user during the initial setup.
Each unit measures and transmits: IR sensor reading, ambient temperature, RF signal strength and battery condition to the host and is displayed on the PC screen in real time using the provided software. When used with host receiver UWTC-REC1, data from up to 48 wireless transmitters can be received and displayed. Each unit includes free software that converts your PC into a strip chart recorder or data logger so readings can be saved and later printed or exported to a spread sheet file. When used with the UWTC-REC2, wireless data from one transmitter can be retransmitted by a wired connection as an analog voltage or current signal to interface with a controller, PLC or data acquisition board.
The UWTC-REC4 is a DIN rail mount wireless receiver that works with up to 48 wireless transmitters, and provides up to 4 analog outputs, that can be used for meters, recorders/data loggers, PLCs or other instrumentation.
Can the internal USB port be used for connection to a PC instead of using the wireless connection?

The UWIR-2-NEMA usb port is only for configuration and is designed for wireless transmission only to a receiver that is connected to USB port such as UWTC-REC1. You may want to consider a IR-USB which is direct connection to USB port. Here is a link for you to evaluate.
