Industrial data loggers & data storage

Data loggers and data storage from CSM are based on more than 20 years of experience in the design, development and production of devices for safe and reliable data recording on ATA Flash Cards.

They are characterized by their extreme robustness and long term availability and can be successfully used in many industrial applications. CSM data logger and data storage dispose over RS232, RS422/485 or CAN bus interfaces.

The often required operating temperatures from -40 °C to +85 °C (external devices) or else 0 °C to +65 °C (PCBs) in the industrial sector and in plant construction are standard, likewise the input voltage range from 8 V DC to 32 V DC that is common for these applications. Optional: 5 V DC.

The data management on the ATA Flash Cards takes place in MS-DOS format or in a CSM-specific data format. The exchange of data with laptops and PCs is possible either directly or can be easily accomplished by means of the read and write device OmniDrive from CSM.

CSM data logger and data storage are used for example in the following applications:

  • Accident data recorder/tachograph
  • Data logger for construction and agricultural machinery
  • Data recording device for patient data in medical technology
  • Verifiable-PTB (Federal German Metrology Institute) -approved alibi storage in weighing technology
  • Tamper-proof data storage for burglar alarms

Extensively documented Software Development Kits are available for the integration into the system environment.

DD-Logger

The DD-Logger is a data logging device that is designed to be connected to the RS232 interface. The data recording takes place without a specific data protocol.

The DD-Logger is suitable for the connection to measuring systems, controls, industrial vehicles, etc.

DOS-Drive

The DOS-Drive from CSM is a universal PC Card Drive designed to be connected to the

  • serial RS232-, RS422/485- or
  • CAN interface.

It entails a DOS FAT file system for simple data exchange over the ATA Flash Card with notebook and desktop PCs. The DOS drive is available for shipment as an external device, 3.5" and 19" rack mount version.

The DOS-Drive Mini is a PCB version of the DOS drive that is reduced in terms of its dimensions and deigned to be connected to the RS232 interface. Otherwise it exhibits all the functionality (including DOS Drive Protocol) of the external device. Optionally available is a second serial port and / or a CAN interface.

The DOS Drive Module is as a PCB version a universal application platform for use in serial devices. It disposes over 2 asynchronous serial ports, optional CAN and real-time clock.

The often required operating temperatures from -40 °C to +85 °C (external devices) or else 0 °C to +65 °C (PCBs) in the industrial sector and in plant construction are standard, likewise the input voltage range from 8 V DC to 32 V DC that is common for these applications. Optional: 5 V DC

Additional products: DOS Drive SDK (Software Development Kit with extensive documentation).

DOS-Drive Modul SDK

  • Software Development Kit with comprehensive documentation for DOS Drive Module

OmniScale

The OmniScale is a verifiable PTB (Federal German Metrology Institute) approved data storage device with a RS232 interface. It is mainly used as a substitute for an alibi printer.

It is suitable for connection to:

  • Scales
  • Metering and mixing equipment
  • Filling equipment
  • Gas station systems

The OmniScale provides a simple and robust alternative to conventional log printers. It omits the necessity for the endless search for data on the printout.

The data is written on a tamper-proof ATA flash card and can subsequently be easily evaluated, for example in EXCEL.

DataSafe

The DataSafe is a modern device for recording data with integrated data protection against manipulation.

The DataSafe can be used everywhere where there is a necessity for tamper-proof data storage with a RS232 interface for data and event registration.

Typical application areas are:

  • Intrusion detection systems
  • Fault annunciating systems
  • Fire protection detection systems
  • Access controls

The DataSafe is a modern and affordable alternative to the log printer in all security systems in which data and events have to be registered in a manner that is traceable and protected against manipulation.
