How long will the batteries last in the SQ2010 Logger?
With all channels logging, the following table can be used as a guide:-
|1 Second||3.5 days|
|15 Seconds||31 days|
|1 Minute||75 days|
|5 Minutes||82 days|
|15 Minutes||145 days|
These results were conducted with a new set of Duracell Procell manganese alkaline batteries at 25 C, temperatures below about 10 C or other batteries could change values drastically. These results assume that the 5V external power supply is not being used.
What happens when the batteries are exhausted?
It is not possible to arm the logger when below approximately 5.5 volts. If the unit was logging when the voltage dropped below this point, it will disarm automatically.
Can I power from external supply?
Yes, between 8-28Vdc only. Includes 12Vdc battery.
What happens if the external supply fails?
If the external power fails, batteries must be fitted to prevent loss of data. In the case of a power failure, the logger will switch to the battery supply and continue with no interruption.
How is the battery level displayed?
By the use of a "bar" multi-segment battery indicator on the logger display and, if required, the actual voltage is displayed in the appropriate screen both on the logger display and in SquirrelView.
Can the 2010 Logger be used on a vehicle?
The logger is designed to be powered from a 12V vehicle system directly, higher system voltages will require the use of a suitable convertor.
Can the Logger be powered by the USB port?
How do I power the GSM modem?
External supply voltage (if connected) is provided at the I/O socket. This is made available for powering external devices. The voltage is permanent and cannot be switched ON or OFF.
Can I power sensors from the logger?
Yes Via connection terminal EA external supply (as supplied into the DC power socket Max 100mA B 5V regulated output Max 50mA
Can the internal batteries be rechargeable?
No only C cell alkaline batteries should be used
