CHAPTER 2
PRODUCT FEATURES
Throughout the content of this user manual, the Simple Logger® II may be
referred to as the “SLII”.
2.1Description
The Simple Logger® II Bluetooth Series of loggers are four channel
recording devices powered by alkaline batteries.
Frequency tracking is performed such that 64 samples over one line cycle
are taken. Frequency tracking is performed around the nominal frequency
of 50/60Hz. Harmonic measurements are calculated from these 64
samples (harmonics are only available from the Data Logger Control
Panel within the DataView® software).
The Simple Logger® II records at a rate of up to eight times per second.
Samples are taken at a user defined storage rate. This means that the
input(s) are ignored between measurement intervals.
The SLII’s battery operation allows operation without the need for external
power. A series of front panel LEDs provide a quick status of the logger’s
state, memory usage and low battery indication.
The main advantage of the logger is its ability to perform a variety of
recording tasks with easy and intuitive setup from a computer using
DataView® software, Bluetooth communication and long battery life.
Analog information on the input is sampled and converted to a digital
value. This digital signal is processed and stored along with scale and
time information. An integrated Bluetooth module provides for the transfer
of data from the instrument’s internal memory to the computer for analysis.

OPERATION
3.1
LED Control Operation and Status Indication
The ON/SLEEP state of the SLII can be determined by pressing the
CONTROL button for less than 0.5 seconds. If the instrument is ON, the
status of the instrument will be shown by the LEDs. If the instrument is in
the SLEEP mode, all the status LEDs will light until the CONTROL button
is released. Once released, the status indication resumes.
Control of the instrument is performed by pressing and holding the
CONTROL button until the control LED corresponding to the desired
operation lights. Releasing the CONTROL button when the desired control
LED is illuminated results in the corresponding operation being performed.
When pressing the CONTROL button each LED will light in sequence.
Continuing to press the CONTROL button will result in all LEDs being
off after the last LED lights. If you continue to hold the CONTROL
button down, the sequence will repeat with the first LED. Releasing the
CONTROL button after the last LED turns off and before the first LED turns
on will result in no action being taken by the instrument. This provides a
mechanism to cancel (or ignore) the button press.
The Instrument will turn ON from the SLEEP mode if a recording is scheduled to start.

Simple Logger® II (Bluetooth Edition) Series
Overload occurs when any input is 10% above its input range. When the
battery voltage goes below 1.7 volt the instrument will shut down (terminating and saving the recording, if it is recording).
•
SLEEP mode: The instrument enters the low power state if the button
is not pressed for one minute. It will remain in this state until either
the button is pressed or the internal clock reaches the start time for a
scheduled recording.
•
RECORD mode: The instrument enters the low power state between
sample sets. The slower the storage rate, the greater the portion of
time the instrument is in the low power state. Thus, the slower the
storage rate, the longer the instrument can record.
3.2
Connecting the Simple Logger® II to a Computer
INSTALL DATAVIEW® BEFORE CONNECTING TO THE COMPUTER.
The SLII comes with both USB and Bluetooth connectivity.
The USB connector is located underneath the battery cover and is used
for firmware updates and may not be used for realtime measurements

3.8
Data Storage
The logger captures Trend measurements. The following are definitions
of terms used in this section:
Input Channel: Source for the measurement channel of the instrument.
Measurement Channel: Measurement of input. This can be a simple
direct measurement, the result of complex mathematical operations on a
single or multiple input, or other channels.
Sample Rate: The rate at which the instrument measures inputs.
Storage Rate: The rate at which channel measurements are stored.
3.8.1 Trend Measurements
The logger stores the measurement of each of the inputs. In addition, the
user can define the storage rate, recording period and measurement
format using the Configure Instrument dialog box in the Data Logger
Control Panel software. Control Panel trend measurements are stored at
this fixed storage rate.
3.9
Logger Operation
When the instrument is in use, the following occurs (provided there is sufficient battery voltage and no data is stored in the instrument s memory):
•
The GREEN LED single-blinks every 5 seconds (STANDBY mode
is active and the logger is not recording).
•
The RED LED is OFF, indicating there is no data in memory.
•
The CONTROL button is used to Start/Stop a Recording Session.
•
If the CONTROL button is not pressed for a period of one minute,
the instrument will enter SLEEP mode and wait for either another
button press or the recording start time to arrive (if a recording is
scheduled). While in SLEEP mode, the LEDs will not blink.
•
A button press of 0.5 seconds will return the unit back to the
normal STANDBY mode.
Simple Logger® II (Bluetooth Edition) Series
3.9.1 Recording with Memory Cleared
When a recording starts, the logger will continue to record until one of the
following occurs:
•
The Session is complete.
•
The Memory is full and the recording mode is Start/Stop or Alarm.
•
The CONTROL button is pushed until the STOP (AMBER) LED
lights up and is released before the next LED lights.
•
The Stop Recording command from the Data Logger Control Panel
is sent to the unit.
•
The battery voltage falls below 1.7V.
3.9.2 Recording with a Partial or Full Memory
If the RED LED is double-blinking every 5 seconds, the memory is full and
must be erased before any further recording can be performed.
If the RED LED is single-blinking every 5 seconds prior to starting a New
Recording Session, the memory is partially full.
To save, clear or check memory availability, use the Data Logger
Control Panel software.
There may be instances where the GREEN LED is also double-blinking
every 5 seconds indicating that the logger is still recording. The user can
choose to stop the Recording Session and download the session and/or
erase the memory.
The logger memory cannot be erased while in the Record mode. The
recording must be stopped first.
3.9.3 Memory Filled During Recording Session (Start/Stop Mode)
If the logger is recording using the Start/Stop or Store on Alarm mode and
the memory is filled before the Recording Session has finished, the session will end.
The following happens after the CONTROL button is pushed for 0.5 seconds:
•
•
The GREEN LED single-blinks (standby mode).
The RED LED double-blinks (full memory).
At this time:
•
The memory can be downloaded and erased.
Simple Logger® II (Bluetooth Edition) Series
•
A new recording can be started or scheduled once memory is erased.
If in either the XRM or FIFO mode, the recording will continue even after
memory becomes full. Memory will be freed to make room for new samples.
The method of freeing memory will depend on the recording mode.
3.9.4 Battery Power Insufficient for a Full Recording Duration
If the battery voltage drops below 1.7V, the following will occur:
•
•
•
The Recording Session will terminate.
The Data will be saved.
The GREEN and RED LED will turn OFF.
The logger continues to record until the battery voltage drops below 1.7V.
Pressing the CONTROL button will have no effect. The battery voltage
may rise slightly after the unit turns itself off. In this event, the unit may turn
on momentarily as a result of a button press.
The batteries must be replaced before the recorded session(s) can be
downloaded from the instrument (refer to § 5.1).
Replacing the batteries while the unit is in SLEEP mode will not result in
the loss of data memory. The internal backup capacitor will maintain the
clock and memory while the batteries are being replaced. If the battery
level falls below the usable level or if the batteries have been removed
for an extended period of time, the clock time will be lost. However, the
recorded memory will be maintained.
3.9.5 Recording Session has Ended
The logger will be in STANDBY mode if one of the following occurs:
•
The session terminates due to recording end time being reached.
•
The recording in START/STOP or Store on Alarm mode fills the
memory.
•
The user terminates the session by pressing the CONTROL button
until the STOP (AMBER) LED lights up and releasing the button
before the next LED lights, or issues a Stop Recording command
from the Data Logger Control Panel.
The logger is now ready for a New Session or Download. Pressing the
CONTROL button until the START (GREEN) LED lights up and releasing
the button before the next LED lights, will start a New Session depending
on the available memory.
Simple Logger® II (Bluetooth Edition) Series
3.10 Reset Switch Operation
CAUTION: Risk of electric shock. Disconnect the unit from any input
source before opening the battery cover.
Resetting the instrument takes about 10 seconds, at which time the instrument will be non responsive.
The RESET button resets the CPU and is located under the battery cover.
To access it, remove the battery compartment cover. The reset button is
located on the exposed PCB (see § 2.2 for location).
It is recommended to only press the RESET switch when the logger stops
responding to a normal press button control when not connected to DataView®. It is not recommended to reset the instrument when the logger is
recording, downloading or being configured.
If the logger is not responding to a button press, make sure the unit has
sufficient battery power. If the battery voltage is below 1.7V, the unit will not
respond to a button press. In this condition, pressing the RESET button
will not restart the unit.
It is recommended to download any desired session and erase the memory
before starting a new recording.
The resumption of the logger operation in the above situations assumes
that the RESET button cleared the fault(s). The logger will not resume
normal operation if the fault condition still exists. The instrument will try
to recover normally. However, under certain conditions, the clock and
memory full state may reset, meaning that the memory is marked as full
and the clock date/time is lost.
Simple Logger® II (Bluetooth Edition) Series
3.11 Flash Upgrade Switches
CAUTION: Risk of electric shock. Disconnect the unit from any input
source before opening the battery cover.
The Flash Upgrade Switches are used to recover from a failed flash
upgrade.
To access them, remove the battery compartment cover. The Flash
Upgrade Switches are located on the exposed PCB (see § 2.2 for location).
All three switches should be turned to the ON position in order to flash
upgrade the instrument using the “Fail Safe” method of upgrade from
within the “SLIIFlashUp1xx” utility program.
All switches MUST be set to the OFF position once the upgrade has completed.
Failure to set the Flash Upgrade Switches OFF after the upgrade will prevent the instrument from operating properly and deplete the batteries.

*This unique recording mode provides the opportunity to continuously record over long periods of time by reducing the storage
resolution of the stored data and maintaining matching resolution for the newest data. Each time the memory fills up using
XRM™, every other of the oldest stored samples is discarded making room for newer samples. This process continues until the
recording is manually stopped.
**A memory backup capacitor provides backup power while batteries are being changed. This backup capacitor will maintain the
instrument for up to 10 sec. without batteries installed. After 10 seconds the date and time will need to be reset (data and configuration will be maintained). If the unit is connected to DataView® via a PC, the battery life is 100 hours regardless of the storage rate.
***Voltages beyond this range may damage the instrument.

APPENDIX A
TROUBLESHOOTING
Symptom: After being in a damp, cold environment, the logger does not
function.
Cause, Correction: Condensation may have formed inside the logger,
shorting out the circuitry and discharging the battery. Allow the circuit
board to dry thoroughly in a warm location.
Symptom: Simple Logger® II does not start recording.
Cause, Correction: Make sure battery power is present. Make sure
the PRESS button is pushed long enough to light the GREEN LED and
released before the next LED lights. Make sure the RED LED is not
double- blinking. If it is, memory is full and you need to erase the data (see
§ 3.7). Make sure the SLII is properly configured so that you have Storage
Rate, Recording Period and at least one Measurement Channel specified
Symptom: Cannot find the instrument when pairing the Bluetooth connection.
Cause, Correction: Make sure the Blue LED is single blinking, indicating
that the instrument Bluetooth module is active.
Symptom: Even though the pairing of the Bluetooth is established and
the LED indication is active, the instrument will not connect to the Data
Logger Control Panel.
Cause, Correction: Make sure the Low Battery LED is not blinking. If the
batteries are below 2.2V the instrument will have enough power to run the
circuit but not enough to maintain a stable connection. Replace the batteries.
