Data Loggers

What is Data Logging?

Data logging is the measuring and recording of physical or electrical parameters over a period of time. Data loggers are used in a variety of applications such as in-vehicle data logging, environmental monitoring, structural health monitoring, and machine condition monitoring. Common measurements include temperature, strain, voltage, current, pressure, force, and acceleration.
