Panel Pilot is a simple, Windows-based software platform that allows users to configure and customize a range of Lascar-compatible colour displays. By connecting the display to the computer via USB cable, Panel Pilot allows users to choose a display type from a selection of analog, digital and bar graph styles, as well as display colours, any text labels and scaling if required. Once all display choices have been made using this simple click-through application, users can save the configuration and download it to the display. Panel Pilot is launched in conjunction with the first of Lascar’s compatible displays, SGD 24-M, a high contrast, 2.4-inch TFT colour display with touch screen, dual analog inputs, alarm outputs and SPI and I²C bus capabilities. The display includes an integrated bezel with a silicone seal designed for panel mounting.
The EL-USB-1-PRO is a high temperature USB data logger capable of measuring and recording over 32,000 temperature readings from -40 degrees F to +257 degrees F/-40 degrees C to +125 degrees C. Housed in a waterproof, stainless steel enclosure that protects the logger from corrosion, impact and moisture, the unit is rated to IP67 / NEMA 4X standards and can be used in extremely hostile environments. The EL-USB-1-PRO data logger has a replaceable lithium battery. Plug the logger directly into a USB port and use the EasyLog software to choose a logger name, set a sample rate, program high and low alarms, and select immediate or delayed logging start.
Lascar Electronics has extended its range of stand-alone USB data loggers with the introduction of the EL-USB-TC thermocouple data logger. Capable of accepting input from a J, K or T-Type thermocouple via a mini-thermocouple connector at the base of the unit, the EL-USB-TC can measure temperatures from -328°F to +2372° F / -200° to 1300° C depending on the type of sensor used. Each logger is supplied with free configuration software, a K-type probe and a 1/2AA lithium battery. Once the software is loaded on the host PC, plug the EL-USB-TC logger directly into the USB port to configure it. Choices include naming the unit, selecting the type of thermocouple being used, choosing a sample rate, setting high and low alarms and finally determining when the unit needs to start logging – immediately or a delayed start.
