Data Aquisition & Data Logging


Novus Fieldlogger


FieldLogger is a versatile, powerful  and yet cost effective data logger handling analog, digital and other types of variables with high resolution and speed.  It is a high performance and high connectivity device, yet easy to configure and operate.

It has 8 configurable analog inputs that can read thermocouples, Pt100, Pt1000, voltage and current signals. It also has 2 relay outputs and 8 digital ports individually configurable as inputs or outputs.

Up to 128 mathematical channels can be used to perform operations on the measured values. Up to 32 alarm events can be detected, allowing output activations, e-mails and SNMP traps sending.

Its RS485 interface can operate as a Modbus RTU master or slave. As a master, it can read and log up to 64 external channels. It has a 10/100 Mbps Ethernet interface that allows for access through a browser (HTTP), FTP (client and server), e-mails sending (SMTP), SNMP and Modbus TCP.

FieldLogger has one USB interface to be connected to a computer (for configuration, monitoring and data download) and another USB port for plugging a flash driver for  data retrieval. The 512k logging basic memory is used to store data  and it can be greatly expanded with an SD card.

An exclusive color HMI can be attached or remotely installed for local indication or configuration. A user friendly configurator software can be accessed by Ethernet, USB or RS485 and also  provides means for on-line monitoring, logged data downloading and exporting to spread sheets and other formats.

Remote Mounting Kit

The  FieldLogger's HMI (Human-Machine
Interface) can be assembled remotely to the
equipment, being connected to it via a cable. This kit
makes such operation easy, for it supplies all parts
necessary to attach the HMI to a panel, connecting it
to the FieldLogger to read the interested data.

data locally in up to 128 remote channels (registers) and can provide

precise localization via GPS. This data can be sent to NOVUS Cloud,

allowing it to be accessed at any time, from any place.

Novus LogBox Data Loggers


LogBox Wi-Fi

LogBox Wi-Fi is an IoT device with integrated data logger and Wi-Fi connectivity. It allows monitoring and recording of data remotely, in facilities with Wi-Fi infrastructure. The data can be accessed remotely, wirelessly and centralized through SCADA application, cloud dashboard or by NXperience software. Easy installation and accessibility are highlights of this device.

The device has three universal analog inputs and one digital input, that can operate as counter of pulses (flow sensor) or recorder of events (opening/closing doors).

LogBox Wi-Fi has MQTT protocol to publish data into IoT brokers, Cloud or SCADA system, as well as Modbus TCP protocol to operate as slave into SCADA systems. The device provides uninterrupted recording of data, even in failures of power supply or wireless link, due to its 2-year autonomy backup battery.

LogBox Wi-Fi can be used to comply with security requirements of FDA Regulation Title 21 CFR Part 11. 


LogBox 3G

LogBox 3G is an IoT device with integrated data logger and 3G / 2G connectivity which allows remote telemetry or mobile monitoring solution. Data can be accessed remotely and centralized via NXperience software for Windows or via NOVUS Cloud IoT platform. Moreover, NOVUS may provide access to LogBox 3G for SCADA system or proprietary application through specific communication driver, upon request. Secure, real-time information accessed quickly and easily.  

The device has two universal analog inputs that accept a wide range of sensors. It also has internal sensors for measuring temperature, battery voltage and external sources. In addition, LogBox 3G has SMS commands and alarm alerts.


LogBox BLE (Bluetooth)

LogBox BLE is a bluetooth data logger for up to three analog sensors and one digital.
The analog channels accept direct connection of thermocouple temperature sensors or Pt100 and sensors for any other quantities with signals in current or voltage. The digital channel could either record events with time stamp, such as opening a door or counting pulses from a flow sensor.

The logging interval of LogBox BLE is configurable, and the user can access the parameters using a desktop or notebook via USB interface  with the NXperience software or using Android smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth with NXperience BLE app into Android and iOS devices.
Both applications allow the configuration, download and analysis of the records; also they can be published into NOVUS Cloud, the cloud storage portal of NOVUS.

Since LogBox BLE is the first data logger of Connect family, it can be named as one of the best products on the market for applications that require accuracy in the recording of temperature data, such as laboratories, cold rooms, data centers, among others for requirements such as wireless technology recorder. 

Novus I/O Modules


Novus DigiRail NXProg I/O Module

The DigiRail NXProg brings Industry 4.0 to the DIN rail level. Its available standard I/O yields analog and digital processing signals, providing the means to apply this device as an extension I/O of standard automation systems or as a brain of your own customized application.

Arduino compatible, it allows the use of high level C/C++ programming language, which enables implementation of complex algorithms, like recursion logic, state machines, statistical analysis and mathematic equations. Therefore, this is a big advantage versus the difficult and old-style of the IEC mid-level programming found in most worldwide PLCs.

Fully prepared for harsh environments, the DigiRail NXProg demystifies the use of Arduino- compatible devices for industry, being the perfect merging of robustness and easy programming.

The RS485 and Ethernet interfaces grant the ability to communicate with other devices, respectively with Modbus RTU and Modbus TCP protocols. Flexible to implement custom or Arduino library protocols, this device enables the networked use of Industry 4.0 applications.

Novus DigiRail Signal Conditioner & Digital Transmitter

The DigiRail line of smart transmitters with Modbus RTU comunication interface provide a simple way for integrating analog or digital signals to supervisory systems. 

Featuring 1 or 2 universal analog input channels makes this device the most economical way to deliver analog inputs to PLC´s and SCADA systems. 

The input signals are isolated from power thus protecting  the electrical instruments by eliminating ground loop effects. This reduces substantially  the undesirable interferences and instabilities in sensor measurements. 


Novus DigiRail VA

The DigiRail-VA is the latest addition to the successful and cost effective DigiRail family.  Specifically designed for single phase AC power analysis applications, it is able to measure the most important AC signals and retransmit them in both analog and digital ways.


TxIsoLoop Loop Powered Current Isolator

Loop isolators provide signal protection by electrically isolating the input signal from the output.
TxIsoLoop-1 and TxIsoLoop-2 isolators simplify your application and avoid undesirable ground loops by providing single and dual loop galvanic isolation. The 0/4-20 mA input is measured and an identical isolated signal is reproduced at the output.  Power is drawn from the 0(4)-20 mA input loop, thus no auxiliary power or an external power supply is needed.
