EM60 Data Logger

The METER EM60 Data Logger improves on the EM50 series of dataloggers; adding another sensor port, automatic sensor recognition, and GPS capabilities.

Measures up more than ever before

Because the EM60 is plug and play, it’s a lot easier to use. Especially since it self-recognizes what’s plugged into each port, creating an even more integrated system that does everything for you. Since this data logger is fully automated, it saves you time. Because it’s simple to set up, it saves you leg work.

High-tech that takes no time at all

We updated the EM60 with the goal of speeding up data collection. We added GPS so it automatically keeps track of where data is collected. Integrated barometric pressure and temperature eliminate the need to install extra sensors.

Setup made simple

With the EM60, you just tell the data logger how often to read. It collects and stores data at a selected interval, and because everything is plug and play there’s less wiring and programming to worry about, making measurements extremely easy to take.

Outlasts in addition to outperforming

The best data logger is the consistent kind. We’ve added significant improvements like an integrated solar charging panel, so there’s hardly any power maintenance required. The EM60 uses rechargeable nickel-metal hydride (NiMH) batteries and a built-in solar panel for extended deployments. Pull the battery tab to power on the logger and the NiMH batteries will charge automatically. Unlike our standard Em50 and Em50G, these self-contained data-loggers are built to power, read, and log data from six sensors. The logger case is rated NEMA 4, IP55 for long-term outdoor use.

The data logger that goes the distance

Rely on the EM60 for an advanced combination of simple setup capabilities and a durable design that will save you time and reduce your workload and worry.
