The USB-5100 Series consists of the following multi-channel data loggers:

The USB-5104 logs data from up to four thermocouple (TC) sensors, and includes an internal 12-bit, 10K thermistor to record ambient temperature.

This TC data logger supports any combination of standard-type TC sensors (sold separately) on its four, 20-bit channels.

The USB-5106 logs data from up to four 16-bit analog channels and accepts input from temperature, 4-20 mA, and voltage input sensors.

Both devices have 4 MB of memory – the USB-5104 can store up to 1.6 million measurements, and the USB-5106 can store up to 1.9 million measurements.

All USB-5100 Series loggers support software-selectable burst logging, enabling the logger to record data at a different intervals based on user-specified conditions

Users can easily configure logger sampling intervals (one second to over 18 hours), high/low alarms for each type of data being logged using the USB-5100 Series Data Logger software.

Burst logging can also be configured through software, allowing the logger to vary sampling intervals based on changing sensor conditions.

The built-in LCD screen displays the sensor reading, logging status, battery use, and memory consumption in between readouts.

All USB-5100 Series devices are powered by two AAA batteries (standard included; rechargeable supported).

Sensor Input
USB-5104: The USB-5104 provides four high-accuracy TC input channels that support J, K, T, E, R, S, B, or N type TC sensors. Each channel can be individually configured based on the connected TC type.

The USB-5104 also includes an internal 10K thermistor to record ambient temperature and to provide cold-junction compensation of the TC output.

USB-5106: The USB-5106 provides four high-accuracy analog input channels that support temperature, current, and voltage inputs.

Device Buttons
USB-5100 Series devices provide two software-configurable buttons on the device for users to manually control logging and data display.

Start/Stop button: Depending on the software configuration, users can:

press this button for three seconds to start/resume logging, or to stop logging

press this button for one second to record an internal event or to turn on the LCD screen

Alarm/Stats button: Depending on the software configuration, users can:

press the button to clear a tripped alarm

press this button to switch between statistics, alarm readings, and the current sensor reading (and the internal temperature reading, if supported)

The LCD screen on USB-5100 Series data loggers displays information on readings, alarms, statistics, memory, and battery power.

Included Software
USB-5100 Series Software USB-5100 Series Software is used to acquire and read data from USB-5100 Series data loggers. Deployment options are user-configurable. The logger stores the data for upload to a computer through USB when the acquisition is complete. Users can plot, filter, and export the data.
