The Orbit 360 is an evolution on our already proven logger technology. Beside it being easier than ever to configure and install, it brings several new significant features for more flexibility and for even further enhanced reliability.
The Orbit 360 includes a new Ethernet port and is now fully compatible with RS-485 smart sensors. Additionally, it includes expanded redundant memory, fail-safe power plug and a new powerful internal lithium backup battery that, in combination with the new “smart power management”, ensures “emergency” autonomy for up to 100 days.*
Reliability and usability are key elements for a successful measurement campaign. Which is why we are bringing a greatly improved version of our desktop management software together with a significantly improved approach for setting up your fleet of data loggers.
The new Orbit 360 is designed for the industry professionals who is looking for a “top of the class” data logger specifically intended for wind & solar resource assessment.
The technology in use combined with our expertise in advanced technical support, as well as our comprehensive understanding of anemometry makes for a compelling product offering and a segment leading solution for our international customers.
Integrated Modbus TCP
Direct Modbus communication port with ability for remote configuration of Modbus settings. No need for external converter for SCADA communication.
Expanded Backup Memory
Data is stored on an extractable SD memory card (20 years data capacity). In case of emergency, an internal backup memory allows the Orbit 360 to keep storing data for about 100 more days.
More Sensor Channels
New serial sensor integration through 3 integrated RS-485 buses.
Internal High Capacity Backup Battery
New user replaceable internal lithium battery, enabling stand-alone operations for up to 100 days in case the external power supply fails or is disconnected.*
Alarms and Automated Triggers
We have added a powerful new alarm feature in Atlas and Orbit 360, allowing users to setup level-based alarms, as well as “differential” triggers based upon the different between two logger channels and independent hysteresis settings. You can even set up automated actions based on the created alarms (e.g. activate the ventilation unit of a pyranometer, or the heating of an anemometer)
Smart Power Management
In combination with the internal backup battery, the Smart Power Management enables extremely low power consumption leading to an extended period of standalone “emergency” operation. Before going into emergency ultra low power mode, the user is notified by means of preprogrammed messages.
Smart Sensor Compatible
You can now connect up to 24 smart sensors directly to the data logger (e.g. Hukseflux SR30, Geovane, Thies First Class Advanced X, Dust IQ Kipp & Zonen, etc.)
Complete External Redesign
Redesigned logger enclosure. Industrial grade keypad. Brighter LEDs. New separate fail-safe power plug.
*The real consumption of the system depends to a large extent on the sensors connected to the logger, which have very different consumptions depending on their specifications. When estimating the autonomy of the batteries, the consumption of the sensors must be taken into account. If there are or may be low battery problems, it is highly recommended to use the modem on/off management and, in critical cases, to disable all digital channels.
