RefTek RT 130 Datalogger

The RT130 is a 3 or 6 channel high resolution datalogger. It is low power and highly configurable for a wide range of applications and sensors. It is housed in a plastic clamshell-style enclosure which is nearly waterproof and has internal data storage in the form of two compact flash cards. The RT130 can simultaneously record to the CF cards and transmit data in near-realtime using either ethernet or serial based telemetry. It has built-in sensor controls, scheduled mass recentering, and calibration functions. The RT130 is programmed with a PalmOS program called PFC-130 via the serial port.
