Axiom Datalogger Features
- We eliminate the need to hook laptops up to the datalogger since the software is embedded right into the datalogger.
- The Axiom integrates a waterproof, industrial-grade, and daylight-readable, color touch screen which allows the user to configure, troubleshoot and work through the onboard UI.
- Create graphs of any parameter from any range of dates to spot data anomalies.
- View and export data in tabular format.
- Install new programs, firmware and operating system updates easily via any standard USB flash memory stick.
- Large internal memory capacity can store upwards of 10 years of data (assuming 8 sensors sampling once per hour).
- A virtually unlimited library of configurations can be stored, uploaded, downloaded and selected via the touchscreen, ideal for large network operators maintaining an inventory of spare equipment.
- Allows virtually unlimited expandability—up to 62 digital sensors. Calibration coefficients are not required.
- Can also be expanded with multiple analog sensors via optional SDI-AM analog interface module (optional).
We use military-style bayonet connectors for attaching external devices to our dataloggers. The watertight, corrosion-resistant, positive-locking connection increases reliability by eliminating a potential failure point.
- The color-coded, single-port design makes connecting sensors during installation and maintenance dead simple and fast.
- All FTS sensors include bayonet connectors, and they can be added to any of your current SDI-12 sensors, power sources and rain gauges.
Axiom integrates an optional power manager and a solar charge regulator which is sealed inside the waterproof case. This reduces the chance of a problem with the power system—a common source of problems— and minimizes your time spent repairing damaged power systems.
- The Axiom is constantly aware of parameters like solar voltage and current, battery voltage and current, battery and internal ambient temperature, and can transmit this information via any telemetry method. This allows the datalogger to provide a complete picture of power conditions for diagnosing power issues remotely, eliminating unnecessary site visits.
- At the site, this information is readily available as a graph on the integrated touchscreen with one click. Find out quickly when the problem occurred by viewing the log of data graphically.
- The integrated power manager adds an additional layer of intelligence to the Axiom by allowing the datalogger to directly control the charge rate of the battery based on temperature to ensure the battery life as long as possible.
The industry-leading G6 GOES transmitter—the same equipment that is a standard for all North American fire weather stations—is available as an integrated option in the Axiom. Extremely low power consumption and accurate time keeping enables reliable hourly data for up to 28 days even without a GPS fix. For added reliability and 2-way remote management of the station, Cellular and/or Iridium satellite telemetry can be easily added with Ubicom.
Because reliability is paramount and any downtime means lost data and increased liability, the Axiom is engineered for long-term durability in the harshest environments.
- Three levels of lightning protection. We have 35 years of experience building equipment for the most extreme lightning strike locations.
- The entire unit is IP67 even the touchscreen is fully watertight.
- The military-style bayonet connectors are positive-locking, waterproof, color-coded, cadmium-plated and corrosion resistant.
The Axiom’s waterproof SDI-12 ports are each on a separate, electrically isolated SDI bus, and each can supply up to 500mA to sensors.
If one port becomes disabled because of one of the sensors that is attached to it, the other sensors on the other ports will continue to function. More independent SDI-12 ports means you can reduce the risk of failure by spreading out the sensors among more ports.
Each SDI-12 port is independent of the other and as such the datalogger can drive multiple sets of sensors without having to wait for the first to respond before polling the second, and so on.
