      Velleman 4 chnl USB data logger

      Overall: 4 out of 5

      Unit is easy to setup and use. Software interface is very basic and leaves a little to be desired. I needed a way to log temperature data over a 12 hour period, this seemed like the right item/price to do it, and it does. The charting capabilites fall short of my expectations as you do not have a lot of control of how the data is plotted. Long logging sessions do not plot while being collected, the data is stored and can be "opened" post collection. The limitation is in how much data can be displayed at one time. You cannot change the time "scale" for the chart, which I would like to do. The data is stored in a simple text file (*.txt) format so I suppose I can use excel to chart long sessions. I would prefer an option to time stamp the data using the PC clock instead of simply plotting the number of seconds since logging was started. Barring these software short commings, this unit is impressive and with simple external circuits, can be used to monitor almost anything. I am using it to monitor temperature of my solar hot water panels (chnl 1), heat exchanger (chnl 2) and room temperature (chnl 3). Thermistors, a simple voltage regulator circuit and biasing resistors are all that was needed. Since my needed are to show relative values, I was not concerned with accuracy and did not check that specifically, but can say that the voltages shown by the logger matched the cheap DMM that I use. I will be purchasing at least one more to monitor my furnace ( room temp, furnace temp, run time).....
