Grant's high performance Squirrel data loggers now 'network ready' with built-in Ethernet

Grant Instruments' Squirrel SQ2020 and SQ2040 powerful and portable data loggers enhanced with built-in Ethernet to provide faster, more reliable system networking and remote data transmission

CAMBRIDGE, England, April 19, 2007 - Grant Instruments (www.grant.co.uk), a world renowned manufacturer and supplier of data acquisition, scientific and life sciences products, has enhanced its Squirrel SQ2020 and SQ2040 high performance portable data loggers with built-in Ethernet, at no extra cost to the customer. This enhancement provides users with an out-of-the-box 'network ready' data acquisition product boasting faster implementation, more reliable system networking and remote data transmission.

With twin processors, multiple 24-bit analogue-to-digital converters, 8 to 32 universal channels and 8 event inputs, plus USB and RS232 (Wi-Fi and GSM) connectivity, the Squirrel SQ2020 and SQ2040 ranges, provide the flexibility for use as portable, stand-alone loggers or as PC-linked data acquisition systems. Target applications include industrial testing and research, such as vehicle testing or engine monitoring, scientific and environmental research, and quality assurance.

The new Squirrel SQ2020 and SQ2040 high precision (0.05% of reading and 0.025% of range) data loggers can store up to 1.8 million readings in the onboard memory - additional storage is available via a removable Multimedia (MMC) or SD card. The units also feature up to 16 calculated/derived channels and 4 alarm outputs for triggering external devices. They are powered from internal cells, an external power supply or via USB connection.

Like all Squirrel loggers, the SQ2020 and SQ2040 series feature an intuitive graphical display and are very easy to configure, and connect to virtually any sensor input. The loggers are able to fulfil many data logging needs, including more demanding applications requiring up to 100 readings per second on 4 channels (Squirrel SQ2040-4F16).

SquirrelView set-up and download software for a PC is provided as part of the system to enable users to export stored data to a chosen PC based application. The Squirrel SQ2020 and SQ2040 are compatible with Grant's comprehensive range of temperature probes and with commercially available sensors for measuring a variety of physical parameters.

The Grant data acquisition product range extends from high specification, portable data logging systems (Squirrel family) through to fully integrated custom-configurable acquisition and control systems (dataTaker family). All products come with a comprehensive warranty. OEM versions of most products are available on request.
