A data logger is a device that records data over time or in relation to a location either with a built in instrument or sensor or via external instruments and sensors. These days, data loggers can come in small, battery powered, portable, and equipped with a microprocessor, internal memory for data storage and sensors. Some data loggers interface with a personal computer, and use software to activate the data logger and view and analyse the collected data, while others have a local interface device (keypad, LCD) and can be used as a stand-alone device.
One of the primary benefits of using data loggers is the ability to automatically collect data on a 24-hour basis. Upon activation, data loggers are typically deployed and left unattended to measure and record information for the duration of the monitoring period. This allows for a comprehensive, accurate picture of the environmental conditions being monitored, such as air temperature and relative humidity.
