Makers, developers and hobbyists that enjoy building projects for USB and PoE powered devices might be interested in a new specialised circuit testers created by Tekt Industries in the form of the Tektyte LogIT.
The Tektyte LogIT testing equipped consists of two unique circuit measurement tools that both display accurate readings of voltage, current, and power for your project. Watch the video after the jump to learn more about the LogIT project and see it in action.
While is use the Tektyte LogIT specialised circuit testers will also simultaneously log all measurement data directly to a MicroSD card and or PC for verification at a later date. Its creator s explain a little more about the device.
“Our motivation for creating the LogIT devices arose from the observation that in many cases a modern microcontroller based system such as a phone or an Arduino are powered by USB while connected to a PC that is also transferring data.
Looking more closely at the type of measurements made in product development and DIY experimentation, many of these measurements are made at low positive voltages and reasonably low current. Surprisingly there are very few metering tools that allow for a simple connection to the device being tested while still allowing data to pass through uninterrupted.
The LogIT devices are specifically designed to measure the low positive voltages of USB and Power over Ethernet (PoE) connected equipment with high accuracy.
The time between individual measurement data samples, collected inside the LogIT, can be measured at either standard or custom intervals ranging from a millisecond to hours.”
The Tektyte LogIT project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise $7,500 in pledges to make the jump from concept to production.
