The Series IDL Temperature/Process Data Loggers provide an accurate record of temperature or process signals, depending on the model chosen. The compact logger can store over 16,000 records and uses an infrared
transfer dock with a RS232 Serial interface for fast downloads. The Series
IDL logger has a user selectable sample rate and features programmable
high and low alarms that are indicated with an LED and an audible alarm.
SOFTWARE INSTALLATION
1. Ensure that no applications are running.
2. Insert the installation CD and select the install option from the menu.
3. Follow the onscreen instructions.
4. Restart the computer. A new icon will be placed on the desktop.
5. After installing the software, connect the logger.
6. The first time you open the software, you will be prompted to enter a
password. The password will only be used if you decide to use the
security functions. Enter and take note of the password.
SOFTWARE FEATURES
• Graphing of downloaded data
• Zooming function
• Temperature in °F or °C

Data is then presented graphically. At this stage, data can be saved to the
computer.

ALARMS
Within the Issue WIndow, click the Alarm/LED Blink tab to enter the high and
low Alarm Set Points. The high and low Alarm Delays state how long the logger has to be in an alarm state before it is registered as an alarm.
-
The alarms are armed the first time the temperature is in a non-alarm range.
However, if Delayed Start is enabled, then the alarms are armed as soon as
it starts logging on the specified date and time.
CONFIGURATION
The first time the software is opened a password will need to be entered.
Once a password has been entered, the Configuration window will come up.
After the initial launch of the software, whenever a new type of data logger
is connected to the PC, the correct data logger will have to be selected from
the Configuration window. From the Options menu, select Configuration to
bring up the Configuration window.
In the Graph tab, choose the desired temperature units and other graph
options.
In the Device tab, select the correct logger by clicking the button displaying
the device icon matching the logger you are using.
Set up the logger by connecting the infrared dock to your PC and placing
the logger facedown on the dock.
From the Logger Operations menu, select Issue Logger to bring up the Issue
Window. Enter the relevant parameters into the operating software such as
sample rate, alarm parameters, etc.
LOGGER NAMING/LABELING
Within the Issue Window, click the Manifest Text tab. The User Manifest is a
label for the logger that takes up to 450 characters and can be changed every
time the logger is set.
The Owner Manifest is set the first time the logger is set.
MAINTENANCE
Upon final installation of the Series IDL Data Logger, no routine maintenance
is required.
Battery life is shortened by fast logging and use of the visual and audible
alarm indications. To preserve battery life, it is recommended to use the
longest practical sampling rate, and when the logger is not in use to set the
sampling rate to the longest option.
A periodic check of the system calibration is recommended. The Series IDL
is not field serviceable and should be returned if repair is needed (field repair
should not be attempted and may void warranty). Be sure to include a brief
description of the problem plus any relevant application notes. Contact customer service to receive a return goods authorization number before shipping.
NOTICE
Issuing the parameters erases all data currently stored in the logger.
INITIAL SETTING
The first time a logger is set, you will be prompted to enter an Owners Manifest
and a Passcode. This is the only time you will be asked for this information
and it cannot subsequently be changed.
Owners Manifest is a label for the logger normally used to record details of
the owner and/or details related to the logger such as date purchased, shipment, application, etc.
If the default Passcode is changed, and if it is lost, not even the factory can
retrieve it. If this happens then the logger cannot be issued ever again. It is
recommended that the Passcode NOT be changed.
