DT Link Wireless Data Collection from Data Loggers

Category:

DT LINK is a wireless connection to RST DT Series Data Loggers for quick collection of sensor data. It is ideal for data loggers situated in ‘point-to-point’ and line of sight settings where access may be limited, hazardous or disruptive. DT LINK is an alternative to USB wired connections and offers low power consumption and long battery life.

I’m very happy with the quality of the instrumentation and technical support from RST, as always. They worked with us from the initial stages of the project to ensure that we were fully prepared and equipped to use the RSTAR network for the first time. They delivered everything within the tight project time frame to ensure that there were no delays on site, and the submersible tilt meters looked like new even after over twelve months of being submerged in Thames water!
