Guest We need a device to be used in daily rounds to track equipment information like pressure, temperature, oil level, date and time of reading, etc…. There are less than 100 pieces of equipment with no more than 10 data points each recorded 3 times/day. All the information needs to be uploaded and saved at one user station.

In the case of basic data collection which will then be batch dumped to a PC I would suggest the Honeywell SP5500 Optimus. This is a very easy to use and set-up unit which can collect multiple fields of data. All the fields are customized to whatever labeling you may need and all the data is stored into a comma delineated text file. This file is batch dumped to a PC when you sync the unit which can then be imported into any database application.
