Pt100, Pt500 & Pt1000 Logger

Qs_rbbr.gif (1971 bytes)

The Pt-LCD is a handheld, high resolution (16 bit)
temperature datalogger with a liquid crystal display.
The logger connects to an external RTD probe and also has an internal thermister sensor. The logger accepts Pt-100, Pt-500 and Pt-1000 probes. The display shows the RTD temperature, logger internal temperature, battery voltage, logger and alarm status. This logger is designed for indoor use (IP 40) but can be supplied with a TruTrack Seahorse Logger Enclosure for outdoor use.

Liquid Crystal Display Operation

 The Pt-LCD displays logger status and alarm status continuously and can be set to show the RTD temperature, the internal logger temperature, the battery voltage and the number of logged samples.

Logger status is shown as:
If the logger is waiting for Start on Trigger it can be started in the field from the Menu provided on the display.
If an Alarm has been triggered the display will show:

If both Alarms are triggered “Alarm” will be displayed
continuously and “
1” and “2” will flash consecutively.

 Low Batt will be displayed if the internal batteries requires

Pt-LCD Menu Options

Pressing the Enter button on the front panel of the Pt-LCD
activates the Menu Display. The
Down Arrow can then be used to scroll down through the various Menu Options. When the required menu option is displayed, press Enter to select this option. Menu Options on the Pt-LCD are:

The display will update at 1 second intervals for 1 minute after any button is pushed. It will then slow down to 10 second display updates (this is a power saving feature).
