Temperature data logging using 9936A LogWare III

LogWare III is a client/server application that can be used enterprise-wide for environmental data logging and monitoring.  It records, retrieves, and analyzes temperature and relative humidity data. LogWare III can be installed in either a client/server, multi-user environment or on a single PC as a stand-alone system.

LogWare III is designed to acquire environmental condition data from the Model 1620/1620A "DewK" Thermo-Hygrometer using either RS-232 or TCP/IP (Ethernet) communications. Optionally, the software also supports wireless communications using the IEEE 802.15.4 wireless communication protocol.

New features in version 3.0 

  • Greatly improved performance for database transactions, such as committing downloaded/imported data or querying logged data
  • Option to run LogWare III Client application as a service – does not require user to be logged in
  • Improved and simplified e-mail setup and event configuration
  • Improved e-mail delivery system
  • Option to have graph background color change based on current alarm states for better visual management
  • Option to set alarm warning threshold values allows users to be warned before an alarm is tripped
  • Option to delay of out-of-tolerance alarm indications and e-mails to prevent single OOT readings from tripping alarms
  • Option to perform dew point calculations and display dew point value and statistics
  • Option to sync logger’s internal data logging settings with Real-Time Log Session settings
  • Capability of applying a single location to all readings when importing data
  • Capability of downloading logged data without having to terminate Real-Time Log Session

 

LogWare III performs remote environmental condition monitoring and data logging, and logs a virtually unlimited number of concurrent log sessions into a central database. That means data from many DewKs can be managed in real time via Ethernet, RS-232, or wireless connections.

Data may be logged from one or both of a DewK’s sensors, providing up to two temperature and relative humidity inputs for each DewK

LogWare III allows you to customize your graph trace color, alarms, and statistics as you go. You can start/stop log sessions from your computer. LogWare III supports “hot-swapping," which allows you to remove and replace sensors without shutting down the log session. LogWare III also supports security features such as passwords for individual users or groups/teams, a built-in administrator account, pre-defined user groups, and customizable permissions to ensure the integrity of all stored data.

Customizable e-mail settings allow you to send e-mails to designated recipients, including cell phones and PDA’s, when a log session begins, ends, or is aborted; when the DewK’s battery is low; when a sensor calibration is due; or when a temperature/humidity alarm is exceeded.

Data stored on the DewK can be imported into the software, which is a handy feature when power outages disable the network, or when you are unable to physically connect a DewK to the PC or to the network.

Are you ready for a deep dive into your data? Historical environmental data can be viewed by sensor (model/serial number) location or log session and displayed in a spreadsheet-style grid. Logged data can also be exported to HTML, RTF or ASCII text for use in your analytical software, or simply print historical data and graphs.

Customizable graphs in LogWare III with zooming capability are an easy way to analyze your data history, and data points that need to be explained can be highlighted, annotated, and referred to later. LogWare III statistics include min, max, spread, average, and standard deviation functions, and printed reports keep track of the percentage of temperature and humidity measurements that were found to be out of tolerance.

LogWare’s temperature data logging features

  • Data from many DewKs can be logged in real time via Ethernet, RS-232, or wireless connections
