The McElroy DataLogger 6 offers expanded data collection capabilities and new features, and a free software update is now available.

Version 1.09 includes built-in options to record fusion information from manually operated machines. Pipe fusion operators can easily gather important elements that add to tracking and traceability efforts including operator, equipment, material, location, pictures, notes and fusion standards.

A new FusionGuide display makes it easier to interpret drag pressure. Along with bead size recognized by the operator, this pressure is the key to the correct heat soak. Users can zoom into multiple portions of the graph, which makes it easier to confirm that the fusion was done properly during each stage.

The DataLogger 6 can now capture weather conditions in the field that can affect the fusion process. The operator can easily input ambient temperature, pipe temperatures and basic weather conditions.

Another feature is the ability to retrieve joint reports that are stored in the McElroy Vault, no matter which specific DataLogger device uploaded them to the account. This provides users the flexibility to keep one device on the machine doing the work and a second to capture as-built notes, pictures and coordinates when pipe is pulled into place.
