Data loggers have been part of all recording requirements. From the discovery of gravity to the invention of the internal combustion engine, we have always relied on recorded data. We require such data to create new technologies and find ways to improve existing technologies. In such a scenario, it is not surprising that modern technologies rely on a wide variety of electronic devices for data logging purposes. Any electronic recorder is called a data logger as explained below.
What is a Data Logger?
A data logger is an instrument equipped with a sensor, an electronic chip, and internal memory. This combined instrument will record data at regular intervals for detailed analysis in the future. The sensor measures the physical phenomena or the source of data. The data collected by the sensor is converted into electronic signals by the chip, which then proceeds to store the information in its internal memory. A data interface mechanism allows
access to the logged data for analysis and interpretation.
A data logger is a versatile device that can be used for a wide range of reasons. From assessing the amount of sunlight or rain received by a city or region to the average temperature of the cold storage vehicle throughout its journey across the country. There are many applications from hobbies to research. A data logger facilitates automatic collection of data at periodic intervals without any reliability or performance issues. Two commonly-used data loggers are devices that measure and log temperature and humidity.
Different Types of Data Logger
Climate Data Logger
This is a Climate Data Logger with a sensor system which is externally expandable. An expandable data logger means, it can expand its functions by adding additional accessories into the main device. We can fit the DL200P Climate Data Logger with two TS910 contact temperature sensors, and with two electrode pairs for measuring resistance dampness.
Humidity Data Logger
Humidity loggers are for recording humidity. Generally, the humidity data loggers will be combined with temperature recording. For this reason, we term them as temperature and humidity data loggers. There are models with internal and external sensors.
We can see the current readings on the screen along with certain other critical parameters.

Multi-channel recorders and data loggers by Graphtec
Graphtec, Japan manufactures a wide variety of advanced data loggers. Some of these models can take inputs of up to 200 channels.The data loggers come with large LCD displays capable of displaying graphs of the input terminals.
Vacker Dubai is authorized distributor for all instrumentation products manufactured by Graphtec, Japan.
Pressure Data Logger
The DL200D temperature, humidity and pressure data logger is the complete indoor climate station.
By collecting air temperature, humidity and air pressure values, this device provides a complete data recording. It has a combination of real-time data display, detection as well as logging of measured values over a long period of time.

Temperature Data Loggers
Temperature data loggers are for recording temperature for any sort of applications. For various types of applications, the temperature needs to be recorded across the entire range of -200°C to 1350°C.We supply numerous types of data loggers for these applications. All types of electronic recorders are known as data loggers.

Temperature, Humidity and CO2 Logger
Indoor air and ventilation quality are important for experts in the field of ventilation, heating and air conditioning. Also, architects and industry engineers need an automatic recording
device to measure the long-term indoor air and ventilation quality. The best option for a multifunctional device is our BZ30 CO₂ Data Logger.

Vibration data loggers
Vibration data loggers are for the recording of vibration during transportation of sensitive equipment. While
transporting medical equipment, transformer, electrical panels etc. it is important to avoid sudden vibrations. Also for structures and buildings, vibration is recorded for analysis. These are also known as Impact Recorder since it is recording the impact. For all these purposes, vibration data loggers are used.
Single use USB data logger
Single use data logger or disposable data loggers are for recording temperature data only once. After one use, we cannot reuse the same. While transporting medicine, fruits, vegetables etc, the shipper can keep these data loggers inside the consignment. The receiver can check the data of this logger before accepting the consignment.
