Barometric Pressure & Temp Virtual Chart Recorder
Product Announcement from Newport Electronics, Inc.
The NEWPORT® iBTX-SD transmitter lets users view virtual charts and record Barometric Pressure and Temperature over an Ethernet network or the Internet with no special software-just a Web browser.
The device can trigger an alarm if the barometric pressure or temperature goes above or below a set point that the user determines. The alarms can be sent by email to a single user or to a group distribution list, including text messages to cell phones and PDA's.
The iBTX-SD comes complete with a removable 2 GB SD Flash Memory card that can store up to seven years of readings taken at ten second intervals. The data is recorded on widely available SD (Secure Digital) flash cards. The format is a simple text file that is easily imported to spread sheets and other programs. It can be read directly on a PC or MAC with a USB card reader. You can also download the data remotely over an Ethernet network or the Internet.
