- Rugged and easy to use
- Records over 81,000 readings
- Accepts any 4-20 mA signal
|FR0000||GL500U-2-1 data logger, USB|
|Usually ships in 1-2 weeks|
The GL500-2-1 Data Logger features two analog channels and one pulse channel for recording data. The data logger records over 81,000 readings and has four unique recording options: fast (10 samples per second), programmable interval (1 second to multiple years), logarithmic, and exception. Start and stop alarm times can be programmed to synchronize multiple loggers, delay sampling until a preset time, or limit the number of recordings during a day. The GL500U-2-1 USB model is great for direct connection to a laptop or desktop PC.
The GL500-2-1 can monitor two 4-20mA sensors and features a scalable digital input that accepts switch closure signals and pulses from various external devices. The logger provides switched power to the sensors based on the programmable sample interval and sensor warm up time settings. Two- and three-wire sensors can be quickly connected to the datalogger’s internal terminal strip and calibrated via the included Global Logger II software.
The GL500-2-1 includes Global Logger II Windows software, which allow for easy setup, calibration, upload, and transfer to a spreadsheet program. NOTE: 64 bit operating systems are not currently supported.

If someone speaks to Jesse Ellis, Assistant Professor of Biology at Coe College and Director of the Wilderness Field Station, they might get interrupted; by a blue-headed vireo.
“Bird songs are a big part of data gathering for research here,” says Ellis. “We use automated recording units (ARUs) to record wilderness sounds, especially sounds made by birds and frogs.”
The Wilderness Field Station is a teaching-oriented facility. “In addition to our annual summer classes, we also conduct bird studies here including bird counts in transects, and researchers from other colleges come here to do multiple lake samplings,” Ellis adds.Read More
For most humans, mayflies seem like a nuisance, hovering over the waterways as we try to enjoy them. However, for anyone hoping to monitor the health of watersheds, mayflies are important aquatic species—and now, a digital version of the mayfly is helping some scientists keep an eye on the water. Research scientist Dr. Scott Ensign , who serves as Assistant Director of the Stroud Water Research Center , spoke to EM about how the digital mayfly technology developed.
“ Shannon Hicks is the engineer who started developing the Mayfly six or seven years ago,” explains Dr. Ensign.Read More
Time is of the essence when it comes to tracking algal blooms, and people everywhere are looking for solutions. In Florida, scientists from Florida Atlantic University Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute (HBOI) recently trialed a solar-powered, algae-tracking sail boat developed by Navocean , Inc. Dr. Jordon Beckler of Florida Atlantic University (FAU) directs HBOI's Geochemistry and Geochemical Sensing Lab and spoke to EM about the trials and the boat.
"This boat is so amazing when you see it in action," remarks Dr. Beckler. "Navocean originally contacted me a few years back about a demonstration when I was over at my previous institution in West Florida, and we brainstormed some scenarios for employing the boat for harmful algae bloom monitoring.Read More
