Standard Loggers

SHM's Standard Logger Range provides robust, reliable, cost-effective data logging for pulse-output meters. 

The DL4 provides 4 independent pulse-counting channels with a capacity of 6000 readings each.

The UL8 provides 8 universal channels with a capacity of 3000 readings each.  Universal channels can log analog quantities, eg. temperature, as well as pulse counts.

The UL24 provides 8 universal channels with a capacity of 6000 readings each and 16 pulse-counting channels with a capacity of 3000 readings each.

These data loggers are fully configurable via SHM's software utilities pack.

For monitoring water meters in meter pits or other hard-to-get-at meters, we can supply an RF Pulse Bridge.

  • Pulse logging
  • Analogue/Temperature logging
  • Channel Alarms
  • Connect any pulse output sensor for monitoring electricity, fluid flow, steam, heat, gas, oil, etc.
  • Extensive networking capabilities: RS485, telephone etc.
  • Dial in or dial out connections
  • Variable logging to one-minute intervals
  • Multi level security features
  • Fully configurable
  • Comprehensive software utilities
  • DL4, UL8  and UL24 loggers can be networked together in any combination.

Communications

SHM's Standard Loggers support a comprehensive range of communications options. Clusters of loggers can be networked together using RS485.

The logger communication protocol is designed to be efficient and minimize communications costs. To further reduce costs, we have various ways of sharing a telephone line or modem with another device.

  • Telephone modem (internal or external)
  • Ethernet - An Ethernet Gateway Unit (EGU) allows a cluster of loggers to be interrogated via the Internet (TCP/IP)
  • Integral Ethernet Interface allows loggers (except DL4)  to be connected to any TCP/IP network (no need to use an EGU).

Software

SHM provide simple software utilities to configure and read data from the loggers, for example, UCOMM, UREAD and UCSV.

We also have our own easy-to-use Energy Monitoring Software specifically for SHM loggers.  XLeMs produces Reports and Charts in the form of Microsoft Excel workbooks.

For large-scale or multi-vendor Energy Monitoring Systems we recommend Reality from Stark Software International, which is fully compatible with all SHM loggers.
