Data and System Specifications:
Power Requirements: 12 VDC +/- 10%
Power Sources: Internal battery pack 12VDC and 120 VAC to 12 VDC power module
Outputs: RS-232 for radio transceiver, RS-232 for dial-up modem (radio & modem share common RS-232 port), RS-232 to remote display
Flexible averaging periods: 1, 5, 15, or 60 minute
Auto-programming: plug in a sensor and the Automet identifies the sensor type, determines its range and writes the programming to record the sensor data.
