What are state, event and pulse data loggers?
Pulse, event and state data loggers are often used in unison to record different stages of an action or event, such as monitoring how often and when a door opens and closes.
A state data logger monitors the duration of an event. For example, it will track the length of time a door was left open.
An event data logger monitors when an event happens. For example, it will track the exact time a door was opened and the exact time a door was closed.
A pulse data logger monitors how often an event happened in a certain amount of time. For instance, it can track how many times a door was opened or closed in one hour.
What industries use state, event and pulse data loggers?
State, event and pulse data loggers are often used in electric or water meters but can be used in a broad range of industries where detailed time stamps are required. This data can be recorded in elapsed or real time.
A state data logger can be used to detect the length of time a water pump or furnace is left on or off.
An event data logger can be used to monitor water tipping out of a rain gauge. For instance, data can be logged at the time the gauge tips over and the time it stops.
A pulse data logger is often used in pipelines, where the data logger is connected to the flow meter to measure the number of ‘pulses’ that take place within a certain time. This can help users to decipher whether there are too many or too little gallons flowing through the pipeline per minute.
