MSR255 datalogger: Robust all-rounder with LCD screen

model with msr255

msr logo


Swiss technology company MSR Electronics GmbH introduces a logger with an LCD display into its universal range of mini dataloggers. The multifunctional MSR255 optionally measures temperature, humidity, pressure, light and 3-axis acceleration/attitude (incl. fast peak). It is equipped with an individually configurable 4-row backlit LCD display and the unit can be fitted with 4 analogue inputs.

5 sensors and 4 analogue inputs for greater flexibility

The full version of the MSR255 is equipped with four high-quality internal sensors that can be fitted optionally inside the case or connected externally using a cable. The available sensors are temperature, relative humidity, air pressure and light. In addition there is a sensitive sensor with fast peak function for measuring acceleration in all three axes. This allows the peak value to be recorded once a second, whilst making measurements of up to 1600 values per second per axis. The MSR 255 is therefore the ideal device for shock measurements. The additional four analogue inputs with alarm output and multiple output switching power supply turn the MSR255 into a universal datalogger for an almost unlimited range of applications. Its versatility makes this robust datalogger suitable for the most diverse documentation and monitoring tasks, for example in museums and galleries, the foodstuffs industry, facility management, the paper industry, the health sector and for scientific applications. Thanks to its large internal memory, which allows over two million measurement parameters to be stored, the unit is also eminently suitable for making long-term measurements.

Individually configurable display

The MSR255 has two operating keys. The easy-to-read backlit LCD display shows the current values of all measurement channels together with the battery status and further device information. The user may individually configure the four available views. Up to four display values can be defined for each of the views and users may select from all of the measurement channels, battery status, configurable limits and alarm values. The display has an energy-saving mode that is configurable using the PC software.

High-performance battery

The MSR mini datalogger range exhibits extremely low power consumption thanks to the use of high-quality sensors. This allows data to be recorded for periods of over a year. In order to provide for the additional power consumption of the display, the MSR255 has been fitted with a considerably higher battery capacity of 2300mAh. A permanent power supply can also be connected via a 6V socket. All data recorded using the MSR255 can be rapidly transferred to a PC or laptop via the USB interface. The user-friendly data acquisition and analysis software is provided to users free of charge.

External characteristics

Depending upon its configuration, the device in its anodised aluminium case weighs approx. 222g and will also be available in a sealed version in accordance with IP67. The dimensions are 78 x 62 x 38mm. Included with the unit is a snapper for easily fastening of the logger to a top-hat rail (TS 35).


The MSR255 datalogger is available from November 2010. The minilogger will be available in various versions. Under the name LOG-HC2, Rotronic Messgeräte GmbH will exclusively market a special version that is equipped with two inputs for connecting the company's own HygroClip2 probes for humidity and temperature measurements.
