Viewing archived results on the display

In the latest free firmware update of the DL7 data logger, we have added the option of viewing archived data directly on the display of the device.

  • The results are displayed as a graph
  • Up to six channels can be displayed on one graph at the same time
  • Depending on the archiving frequency, a different time interval is displayed, for example the measurement results from the last shift (8 hours)
  • The interface enables viewing the entire archive saved in the device memory
  • To display the date and value of a specific record, you can use the available cursor

Please contact us for a free firmware update.



The use of the DL2/DL7 data logger and sensors for temperature measurement enables monitoring operation of the refrigeratorAdvanced recording of process values with CRC control of archive files and use of alarm functions can be a confirmation of the conditions in which products were stored. Using the optional battery supply module (PS_BATT), device operation during power outage is possible and archiving continuity is ensured. Additional device functions, i.e. email notifications, backup (battery supply), assigning alarms to relay outputs and math channels enable creating a customized measuring system.

Automatic Web server refresh

In the latest firmware version of DL2 and DL7 data loggers and FP4 flow totalizer we added automatic Web server refresh. We encourage you to update firmware in your device.

Due to this change, the user will be able to view the current values without interfering with the web server.

Please contact us for a free firmware update.


Longer battery operating time and increased number of available measurement inputs

Using a double battery pack, the DL7 recorder in a  in the shockproof case  can work without external power for up to 48 hours ( depending on the number and types of installed I/O modules  and the power consumption of the connected sensors or transducers).Additionally, it is possible to install other M12 sockets. This solution allows you to configure the data logger in a in the shockproof case  with up to 36 analog inputs.


HART module in DL2/DL7 data logger

DL2 and DL7 data logger are extend with new IN1HRT module, which enable communication with devices equipped with HART protocole. DL2 data logger allowes to read up to 30 measurement, DL7 up to 100 measurement. Transducers can be connect via multidrop mode (maximum 15 devices connect to one module).

Flow recording in an open channel using the Parshall flume according to iso 9826

The use of the DL2/DL7 data logger, Parshall flume and ultrasonic probe enables measurement of volumetric flow in an open channel. The datalogger calculates the flow based on the height of the medium (measured by the probe) and entered math formula. The data recorded by the DL2/DL7 data logger enable analysis of the system operation and are a confirmation of the operating conditions. In application note is a description of using the DL2 data logger to calculate and monitor flow in an open channel.

Bolier power limitation control

To fulfilment the requirements of the European Parliament directive on the limitation of emissions of some pollutants into the air from medium combustion plants, it may be necessary to limit the boiler power. The use of the FP-30×1(N) flow computer, measuring sensors and relays can switch off the boiler after exceeding the indicated value of the selected process value, in particular power. The FP-30×1(N) device enables advanced recording and analysis of measurement results, which can be used to confirm the operating conditions of the system. The flow computer is an independent measuring unit that can cooperate with the supervising system. The device is equipped with relay outputs, which enables the implementation of several-stage warning before exceeding selected alarm levels or the realization of a simple control system.

Use of the FP-30×1(N) flow computer in the application with using glycol

Using FP-30×1(N) flow computer it is possible to compute flow and energy for liquids other than water. In such system, values are based on density and enthalpy user tables. The manufacturers of liquids based on glycol for heating/cooling applications usually do not supply detailed specification on density and enthalpy depending on temperature.

PS_BATT module as a backup power supply in the DL2/Dl7 data logger

The PS_BATT battery module enables backup power supply of the DL2/DL7 data logger in the event of a power outage. The described application enables uninterrupted device operating and ensures the continuity of the archiving process. The module can also be installed in a portable case dedicated to the DL7 data logger (device operation in on-off mode).

New functions in DL2 and DL7 data loggers and FP4 flow totalizer

In the latest version DL2 and DL7 the TREND function has been extended from 6 minutes to 1 hour. This allows user to analyse measurements on the device screen over a longer period of time without need data transfer to the computer system.

In DL2, DL7 and FP4 new function allows to adjust the real-time clock. With this function, time is counted with greater precision for logging process values.

Please contact us for a free firmware update.


DL7 data logger in the shockproof case

DL7 Case KIT enables operating the DL7 data logger using storage batteries (from 3 to 12 hours, depending on the number and types of installed I/O modules) or operating the DL7 device using delivered external power supply unit and standby supplying in the event of voltage break (backup). The device enables supplying sensors or transducers connected to the recorder with using an external battery.



Email notifications

E-mail notifications on DL2, DL7, DL7L recorders and FP4 counter

New feature, new possibilities:
– an e-mail message when an alarm occurs,
– notifications can be sent even to 5 recipients at the same time,
– cyclical report with sumator values ​​in daily, weekly or monthly mode,,
– regular access to the value of the adders without the necessity of additional access to the device,
– the possibility of immediate reaction in case of any problems with measurements.
