Product Specs

The HH520 is a 4 channel handheld data logger/thermometer that accepts Types J, K, T and E thermocouples. Measurement settings and results are shown on the backlit LCD display. Data can be stored in the data logger and then downloaded to the computer or directly saved on the computer through the USB interface in real time. With the exclusive software, recording/ recalling of data and programming of logging parameters can be done directly through a PC. There is a save dialog window in the software where the data file name and file type to save can be selected. There are three types of file format that can be selected: binary file (*.ghf), text file(*.txt) and Excel® format file (*.csv). The .txt file format can be opened by the HH520 software and any other word processor program like Microsoft® Word or Notepad. The .csv file format can be opened by the HH520 software and also by Microsoft Excel.

The *.ghf file uses much less disk space to save the data than the other two file formats, but it can only be used in the HH520 software.

Measurement Range:
    J: -200 to 1000°C (-328 to 1832°F)
    K: -200 to 1372°C (-328 to 2501°F)
    T: -200 to 400°C (-328 to 752°F)
    E: -200 to 750°C (-328 to 1382°F)
Accuracy (Does Not Include Thermocouple Sensor Error): ±(0.1% rdg + 0.7°C)/±(0.1% rdg + 1.4°F) between 18 to 28°C (64 to 82°F); ±(0.4% rdg + 0.7°C)/±(0.4% rdg + 1.4°F) below -100°C (-148°F)
Resolution: 0.1°C <600°C (0.1°F <1000°F); 1.0°C ≥ 600°C (1.0°F ≥ 1000°F)
Temperature Coefficient: 0.01% of reading + 0.05°C per °C(<18 or >28°C)
Input Protection: 30 Vrms max
Sample Rate: 2 samples/sec
Power: Four 1.5 V “AAA” batteries (included); external power through USB interface
Battery Life: 100 hrs approx (alkaline batteries)
Operating Environment: 0 to 50°C (32 to 122°F); 10 to 90% RH non-condensing
Storage Environment: -20 to 60°C (-4 to 140°F); 10 to 75% RH
Dimensions: 187 H x 75 W x 29 mm D (7.36 x 2.95 x 1.14')
Weight: 290 g (10.2 oz)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Value and practical Value and practical. In stock and prompt delivery. Software may need one more option on grid layout: such as smaller checker board squares on the background to identify data point location. A longer USB cable would be better. On Windows XP, each time the logger is manually powered off and on again and then the hardware driver is automatically installed while USB was plugged in, but need to uninstall and install it again one more time to avoid installation issue. This would need to state in the manual.

Would the rated sampling rate (Sample Rate: 2 samples/sec = 2Hz) applied to all 4 channel at the same time? if less than all 4 is used, can I increase the sampling rate?

Asked by: AnhT
The channels would measure sequentially so using 1 channel will achieve the 2 Hz rate and if the other channels are measuring it would need to have all used channels completed before the next measurement is made on the first channel. There isn't any way to adjust the sampling rate.

How often does it require a calibration according to the manufacturer? Does it last for one year or more?

Asked by: Yigal
There is no defined time period how long a calibration will remain valid. It is recommended to do a re-calibration at least once per year.

What advantage does this new 4-channel unit have over the older OM-HL-EH-TC 8-channel ?? What makes it worth $50 more ??

Asked by: Silver Wizard
Thank you for your inquiry. Biggest advantage of the HH520 is the accuracy spec; HH520 Accuracy is specified for ambient temperatures between 18&deg;C (64&deg;F) and 28&deg;C (82&deg;F). The specifications do not include thermocouple sensor error. &plusmn; (0.1% of reading+0.7&deg;C) OM-HL-EH-TC &plusmn; ( 0.8 C + 0.2 % Reading ) Best regards RS

Hello, is the only way to record data from the logger through the SE520 software? I want to monitor the temperature and set alarms programmatically. Is there some kind of API?

Asked by: Vatsan
Omega provides the Software for the HH520 so customers can easily capture data then transfer and store. Omega does not have additional interfacing programs or is able to offer support for 3rd party Software or customer developed programs.
Answered by: Applications Engineer AB
Date published: 2020-06-28

Hello, I know that Omega does not offer any API to access the data in the logger apart from the software SE520. However, I saw some discussions online, where it seems like you sent the customer the specific protocols for their device. Could I get one?

Asked by: Vatsan
Thank you for your inquiry. E-mail temp@omega.com for protocols.
