  • Determining the Right Cable Length and Output for a Sensor

    If you’re monitoring a bridge or automating a machine, a high precision sensor is a great solution, but it’s no good if the output signal can’t reach the data logger. Depending on what you need to measure and what environment you’re in, determining how long your cable must run can be crucial. High precision sensors offer three common output types: analog, digital and ...

  • Cable shovel health and longevity and operator efficiency in oil sands excavation

    Cable shovel excavation in the Athabasca oil sands formation is carried out with little or no pre-fragmentation. The stress loading of a shovel's front-end assembly must continually be monitored and managed to prevent fatigue failure. In this paper, the authors advance the reliability of the cable shovel boom through dynamic and stress modelling using rigid and flexible multi-body dynamics theory ...

  • Can I monitor multiple points on one datalogger?

    Yes – using the Ebro EBI-310 USB datalogger you can monitor up to 3 points with one unit. The logger has a built in sensor, but by adding an adapter and external probes the one unit can monitor the temperature of up to 3 locations. This could mean monitoring the laboratory room temperature, ...

  • Protecting Remote Monitoring Sites from Lightning Damage

    Protecting monitoring sites from lightning damage is an important consideration for equipment and stations that are deployed in areas that are prone to lightning strikes. Lightning that does not directly strike a site may still cause damage by traveling through the ground and into buried sensors or cable. Proper planning for such events can help reduce the risk of lost data or expensive ...
