Data Logger
Two product families. One goal: data logging in the vehicle

Data Logging Solutions: GL Logger or Smart Logger?

Your use case decides which product family is best suited to your task in the vehicle. Both families are designed for the robust usage in vehicles. Find all information here to make your decision easier.

What is a GL Logger?

GL Loggers are a family of robust standalone data loggers, with a very simple to use, template based configuration tool. Their main application is the use in vehicles, for quality assurance or to search for sporadic errors. GL Loggers have a focus on recording communication on vehicle networks. The recordings can be enhanced by using vehicle diagnostics or CCP/XCP. Environmental data, from analog measurement to context cameras, as well as the position through GPS can be acquired through a variety of accessories.  Power consumption is lower and boot times shorter, by orders of magnitude, than with PC based loggers.

What is a Smart Logger?

Smart Logger is the combination of measurement software (CANape log or vMeasure exp) and an industrial computer platform. This gives you universal access to measurement data coupled with the simplicity of a data logger. Install the data logger in the vehicle, connect all sensors, buses, ECUs, cameras and much more to the data logger. Connect your laptop via Ethernet, load an existing measurement configuration onto the data logger or use the software interface for configuration. In logger-only mode, a web-based GUI is all the driver needs to interact with and monitor the data logger.
