Developers, makers and electronic enthusiasts searching for an open source WiFi data logger, may be interested in the aptly named OpenLogger by Digilent. OpenLogger has been specifically created to provide users with a portable, open source, low-cost, high-resolution data logger. Capable of capturing high-quality measurements without requiring expensive software or writing software from scratch. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more.
The development team explain more about the wireless capabilities of the OpenLogger. “Wi-Fi connectivity lets you remain electrically isolated from the device under test. It also lets you connect to a mobile platform, such as a car, where a cable connection is not an option. This combination of features makes OpenLogger a great choice for a wide range of applications.”
Example of wireless applications include :
– A mechanical engineer measuring the g-force on a mobile robot can take advantage of wireless connectivity and browser-based software to get up and running quickly, visualizing live data remotely.
– An electrical engineer measuring the hot spots on a circuit board can place temperature probes in eight different places on the board and log data to an SD card for accurate measurements over time.
– An electronics enthusiast at home can connect OpenLogger to a current probe and measure the power usage of each circuit in their house while keeping their PC electrically isolated from high currents and taking advantage of the embeddable nature of OpenLogger.
