Datapaq introduces a radio telemetry system that provides live temperature data transmission from inside industrial heating or cooling processes in all kinds of industries from batch cooking/ freezing in the food processing industry to vacuum furnace surveying in the aerospace industry to long duration firing processes in the ceramics industry with extremely high temperatures. Designed for use with the company's Q18 line of data loggers, the system comprises transmitters for installation inside the data logger, primary and secondary receivers, and the Insight analysis software.
The data loggers measure temperatures between -200°C and 1,370°C. These versatile units combine fast readings, a ±0.5 ºC accuracy, and a resolution of 0.1 °C. A large internal memory allows for the logging of up to 50,000 readings per channel ensuring no data is ever lost. Up to six dataloggers can simultaneously connect to one receiver providing the ability to measure from up to 72 thermocouples. The system enables continuous temperature monitoring and analysis.
