Product Innovation: MRL-6 – The Compact, New Data Logger
MRL-6 Datenlogger

Next generation of the SOMMER data loggers for hydrology and meteorology

Easy, convenient and quick. These are the preconditions for SOMMER to launch a new and low priced data logger for collecting, processing and storing various measurement data. The new data logger MRL-6 works very reliably and energy-saving in extreme environments. Moreover and due to its waterproof housing the MRL-6 is most suitable for data recording in the fields of environmental measurement technology and in remote areas without any infrastructure.

Advantages of the new MRL-6:

  • Reliable and energy-saving: optimised to collect monitoring data at remote measurement stations with no power supply.
  • Logger can be operated fully independently (with internal batteries or integrated solar charge regulator), no equipment cabinet required due to IP 67 rating.
  • Ideal integration and compatibility with complete SOMMER sensor family as well as third party sensors. Interfaces: SDI, Modbus, RS 485, analogue
  • Backlit display for easy handling (up to -20 °C)
  • Data readout with USB flash drive, Bluetooth-interface or RS-232
  • Minimum energy demand
  • Solid, compact and weatherproof aluminium housing
