The latest Hotbonder software release (Version 2.0) enabled a long anticipated feature. Data logging capability is now a standard feature of the Hotbonder at no additional cost. It is included in all new Hotbonders and upgrades to existing model 8024-2e machines.
The data-logger records temperatures from the existing Hotbonder thermocouples without having to run a cure. The data logging capability co-exists with the hotbonder in that you can perform a cure on one zone and data log on the other. Of course, you can use both zones at once for recording temperatures with up to 10 T/Cs per zone or even record one zone with up to 20 T/Cs. It is very flexible when it comes to configuration and it has the accuracy of the Hotbonder as it uses the same circuitry.
