ALMEMO® precision measuring instrument and data logger, up to 90 measuring inputs. Comprehensive functions covering all application areas. Tablet control via app.
Solving complex measuring tasks using the ALMEMO® 500
The increasing digitization and networking changes the entire chain of production. This also applies to measuring instruments that must be able to integrate themselves into existing networks – Keyword Industry 4.0. Our new web-based technology positions us future-proof for the era of increasing networking. Our customer receives a scalable system for recording numerous measuring points with maximum precision. The device can be controlled via tablet and state-of-the-art interfaces such as USB. A web service makes the measurement data accessible anywhere and anytime. The new networking features are perfect for e.g. monitoring climate or production processes. It is possible to access all networking features and measured value enquiries via tablet app or – as usual with Ahlborn devices – via PC using the WinControl software.
Modern control via app and web service
The user operates the ALMEMO® 500 via an included 8-inch tablet and a preinstalled app. An integrated web service enables access to the data logger. However, the app not only visualizes the measurement data. The software also allows the user to configure the entire data logger as well as all attached sensors conveniently on the tablet. It is possible to export data to Excel as well. This is useful in case the measurement data shall be further processed in Excel or other programs. Thanks to the web service it is possible for several users to simultaneously log into the device e.g. from different locations in case of decentralized measured value monitoring. An intelligent permission management ensures that measurements are not accidentally changed. A Wi-Fi hotspot integrated in the data logger is responsible for the connection between the tablet and the data logger. In the standard configuration this is set up as an access point, which provides the user with a secure Wi-Fi network. Alternatively, the data logger can also connect to an existing network as client. This is enabled by a special client mode in the measuring instrument that allows the user to access the data logger via a company network or an external VPN connection. A configuration website integrated in the data logger allows the user to configure the Wi-Fi hotspot, e.g network settings or encryption, in just a few steps. This works similar to the configuration of a router. The ALMEMO® 500 enables the user to view historical measurement sequences saved on the measurement data storage using the app. The measurement sequences can be loaded offline as well as during measurement operations.
Monitor up to 90 measuring inputs in fail-safe operation
Ahlborn features the ALMEMO® 500 standard version with 20 galvanically isolated measuring input sockets. Depending on the housing width, the device can be augmented to up to 90 measuring input sockets by inserting further plug-in cards. For thermocouple measurements, the data logger features internal cold junction compensation. Optionally available battery compartments enable fail-safe longterm measurements. Operated with batteries, the ALMEMO® 500 can be used as a mobile device as well.
Store 600 million measured values internally
A 4GB SD memory card is integrated in the data memory of the ALMEMO® 500. Depending on the measurement resolution, this card is sufficient for up to 600 million measured values. For long-term measurements, it is possible to configure the data memory as a ring memory. In case the memory is not sufficient, the user can plug in additional memory in form of an USB flash drive or an USB hard disk via the USB port. The ALMEMO® 500 will then save all measurement data to the external medium.
Networking thanks to state-of-the-art interfaces
It is possible to link several ALMEMO® 500 devices via the USB interfaces or via the integrated access point, using either Wi-Fi or LAN network. The user operates all devices via the ALMEMO® 500 app. Additionally, the measured values can also be queried and displayed using the measured value acquisition software WinControl.
Depending on the use: desktop housing or rack housing
Ahlborn features the ALMEMO® 500 with a desktop housing of type TG6 and TG8. The side frames are manufactured using two-component injection molding (2-shot-molding). The device can be carried on stable aluminum handles. Rubberized components prevent the ALMEMO® 500 from slipping. Thanks to the particular form of the side frames, the housings are stackable. Apart from the desktop housing, Ahlborn features an additional device version in the classic 19-inch rack housing suitable for cabinet solutions.
