myPCLab from Novus is one of the best ways to simply record temperature data direct to your computer.  This unique product measures two temperatures, and sends them by USB to a file on your computer. And it is inexpensive ($ 199).  It also has a digital input for information like door open, or machine running.  Free software is included.My PC Lab


myPCLab is a very compact Data Acquisition tool which connects to a PC via a USB port.  It monitors two universal input analog variables (like temperature) along with one digital input. From hobbyists to scientists, from simple technical tasks to complex engineering activities, myPCLab can be an invaluable tool for on-line monitoring and data logging in school, laboratory research, machine data recording and industrial understanding.


myPCLab comes with intuitive, easy-to-ause Windows software which plots and records data, shows gauges, bar graphs and digital readouts.


The USB port is accessed as a virtual serial port which also makes myPCLab compatible with SCADA software with a Modbus RTU driver or with any program with ASCII serial communication. A.I.S. can help by developing software solutions for convenient data collection and analysis. Multiple units of myPCLab can be connected to the same computer.  myPCLab comes complete with everything you need to get the job done.
