CAS DataLoggersIf you are new to data logging, you might be asking yourself "Why should I buy a data logger instead of another way to collect data?" True, a data logger is only one of the many different options available to record electrical or physical data, but CAS DataLoggers has identified 10 reasons businesses and organizations should strongly consider using data loggers:

  1. Automatically collect data without human error or reminders
  2. Minimize manual measurement errors using high-accuracy technology
  3. Significantly reduce labor costs and time wasted on manual methods
  4. Cost-effective, affordable devices given all their features and savings
  5. Automatically generate alarms whenever conditions suddenly go out of specification
  6. Keep permanent electronic records for regulatory compliance and legal proof
  7. More dependable operation than a PC running MS Windows
  8. Analyze data more easily using convenient programs like Excel
  9. Battery-powered solutions for monitoring remote sites or critical applications
  10. Decrease response times and potentially prevent disasters by making data available to many different users.
