Smartscan 8/16


8/16 Channel Universal Input Data Logger

SMARTSCAN is an advanced micro-controller based data acquisition system mainly designed for Industrial, Pharmaceutical & Laboratory use. The SMARTSCAN accepts 8 (or 16) channel universal analog inputs & 2 digital Inputs. The 16 character x 2 line alpha numeric LCD display with backlight gives easy man-machine interface and bright LED display gives clear indication of the process parameters along with set point values. In-built USB Host driver gives the flexibility to download the data on USB stick and offers the on-site program update facility to the system. Optional GSM/GPRS connectivity gives remote SMS alarm facility and data transfer by E-mail or FTP transfer on web server. The reliable firmware ensures accuracy in analog readings and assures perfect time latency in data logging.
