Omega Engineering”s OM-CP-RFTC4000A is a portable, battery-powered, standalone, thermocouple-based temperature transmitter device. When enabled, the wireless transmitter will transmit readings back to the host computer where the data can be analyzed in real time. For added security the readings are logged to the device memory. A slide switch allows the transmitter to be turned on and off without affecting the operation of the device. Data is received at the PC using the device”s receiver that attaches directly to the serial port. Received data is time and date stamped and stored directly on the PC. Windows software converts the PC into a real-time strip chart recorder. Data can be printed in graphical or tabular format and can also be exported to a text or Microsoft Excel file.
