Posted on November 14, 2008

Webster Instruments has launched a new handheld hydraulic data logger for testing and diagnosing hydraulic systems. The new model HPM540 is applicable for portable diagnostic applications in mobile, industrial and agricultural machinery, as well as installation on hydraulic test benches.

The HPM540 handheld data-logger with USB connectivity is designed to provide superior user flexibility, Webster said, by allowing connection of up to four sensors and monitoring or data logging direct to laptop any combination of flow, pressure, temperature, speed and analog inputs.

The data-logger also features high-speed data logging of up to 2000 points/sec and a sampling rate of up to 0.25 ms, which is applicable for capturing pressure spikes, and offers data logging by time interval, on event, or on user input.

The rechargeable battery-powered HPM540 features sensor recognition which automatically recognizes which SR series sensor is connected and automatically scales the input as well as engineering units. Or, the HPM540 can feed in other analog signals 4-20mA and 0-5V.

Accessories include a range of pressure transducers and flow meters as well as temperature and speed sensors. In addition other unique sensors as well as d.c. current or voltage can be connected with the optional external signal modules.

The HPM540 is the latest addition to the Webster SR family of products and comes with free Windows compatible HPMComm analysis software, USB cable and universal AC battery charger.
