Novus Fieldlogger

FieldLogger is a versatile, powerful and yet cost effective data logger handling analog, digital and other types of variables with high resolution and speed. It is a high performance and high connectivity equipment and yet easy to configure and operate. It has 8 configurable analog inputs that can read thermocouples, Pt100, Pt1000, voltage and current signals. It also has 2 relay outputs and 8 digital ports individually configurable as inputs or outputs. Up to 128 mathematical channels can be used to perform operations on the measured values. Up to 32 alarm events can be detected, allowing output activations, e-mails and SNMP traps sending. Its RS485 interface can operate as a Modbus RTU master or slave. As a master, it can read and log up to 64 external channels. It has a 10/100 Mbps Ethernet interface that allows for access through a browser (HTTP), FTP (client and server), e-mails sending (SMTP), SNMP and Modbus TCP. FieldLogger has one USB interface to be connected to a computer (for configuration, monitoring and data download) and another USB port for plugging a flash drive for data retrieval. The 512k logging basic memory is used to store data and it can be greatly expanded with an SD card. An exclusive colour HMI can be attached or remotely installed for local indication or configuration. User-friendly configurator software can be accessed by Ethernet, USB or RS485 and also provides means for on-line monitoring, logged data downloading and exporting to spreadsheets and other formats.


The FieldLogger’s HMI (Human-Machine Interface) can be assembled remotely to the equipment, being connected to it via a cable. This kit makes such operation easy, for it supplies all parts necessary to attach the HMI to a panel, connecting it to the FieldLogger to read the interested data.

Data Sheet
