The OM-CP-ETR101A-KIT comes assembled and includes a data logger, temperature sensor (thermocouple Type K), waterproof NEMA 4 (IP65) enclosure suitable for outdoor use, USB interface cable, and software. Setup is fast and easy.
The OM-CP-ETR101A-KIT is suitable for a wide range of outdoor applications including profiling the exhaust gas temperature of tractor trailers, buses and trucks. Simply mount the enclosure containing the data logger to the vehicle and insert the included type K thermocouple probe into the vehicle exhaust pipe using a compression fitting. The data logger can then record a complete exhaust gas temperature profile that can be used in the selection of the correct diesel particulate filter (DPF) for the vehicle.
Using the included software, the logger is programmed to record for a set period. Data is stored in the data logger, and is downloadable at any time via a pc or laptop computer.
The storage medium is non-volatile solid state memory, providing maximum data security even if the battery becomes discharged. Its small size allows it to fit almost anywhere. Data retrieval is simple. Plug it into an available USB port and the easy to use Windows® software does the rest. The software converts your PC into a real time strip chart recorder. Data can be printed in tabular format and can also be exported to a text or Microsoft Excel® file.

250,000 readings in multiple start/stop mode or trigger setting mode
Wrap Around: Yes
• Immediate start
• Delay start up to 18 months
• Multiple pushbutton start/stop
Multiple Start/Stop Mode: Start and stop the device multiple times
without having to download data or communicate with a PC
Multiple Start/Stop Mode Activation:
To Start the Device:
Press and hold the pushbutton for 5 seconds, the green LED will flash during this time.
The device has started logging.
To Stop the Device:
Press and hold the pushbutton for 5 seconds, the red LED will flash during this time.
The device has stopped logging.
Real Time Recording: The device may be used with PC to monitor and record data in real-time
Alarm: Programmable high and low limits; alarm is activated when temperature
reaches or exceeds set limits
Alarm Delay: A cumulative alarm delay may be set in which the device will activate that alarm
(via LED) only when the device has recorded a user specified time duration of data
Trigger Settings: High and low limits may be set for the thermocouple channel. Once data meets or exceeds sets limits, the device will record to memory. Bi-level start and stop triggers can also be programmed. Users can specify the number or readings to take after the device triggers.
Green LED Blinks: 10 second rate to indicate logging 15 second rate to indicate delay start mode
Red LED Blinks: 10 second rate to indicate low battery and/or full memory 1 second rate to indicate an alarm condition
Password Protection: An optional password may be programmed into the device to restrict access to configuration options. Data may be read out without the password.
Battery Type: 3.6V lithium battery (included); user replaceable
