DAT instruments is always paying a lot of attention to Customer needs and many services have been developed in order to meet all kind of requests. These opportunities come along with all customization, as, according to different sensors, DAT instruments products can be used for jet grouting, cement injection, TAM grouting, drilling, DAC test, CFA, deep mixing, soil mixing, DSM, vibroflotation, diaphragm walls, hydromills, Lugeon and Lefranc tests.

For the Customer and with the Customer

DAT instruments, Amedeo Valoroso, datalogger, DAT OnLine

The first service has been the worldwide installation and after-sales service called DAT OnSite. “Thanks to this support all over the world”, says Amedeo Valoroso, CEO and founder of DAT instruments, “we can install our data loggers in field wherever it is and, at the same time, we carry out an ad hoc training to the staff working in this field”. However, not every field has same needs and same budget. For this reason, DAT instruments has developed two other services, innovative and (last but not least) cheaper. DAT WorkShop, says Valoroso, “is a service in our headquarters in the North of Italy. Using DAT WorkShop our Customer has at his disposal one of our technicians for a whole day. At the same time he has at his disposal demonstration instruments and software to be installed and used guided by the experience of one of our technician”. With this service, every operator can get all secrets about DAT instruments data loggers, see how they are thought and built, and check out the quality of installed components. Valoroso adds: “our attention to our Customer is complete with the innovative DAT OnLine. This is a training service via the Internet, in video conference or at the telephone. One of our technicians helps the Customer during installation and starting processes of the instrument, sending photos and detailed instruction of every component. A DAT instruments technician can install our Easy DAT software remotely, from our headquarter and make sure the training about using our software in the correct way. Using the DAT OnLine, every Customer can stay in his company saving money from travel expenses and working hours”.

In details

Let now see in details how the new DAT OnLine works. This installation and how-to-use course for both the data logger and the software – available for all DAT instruments Customers in Italy and abroad, in Italian or in English – can be carried out in different ways: e-mail, phone, WhatsApp, Skype, Team Viewer. In addition to that, dates and hours are agreed following Customer needs. Any Customer can attend this course with one of high-qualified DAT instruments technician.

DAT instruments experience has demonstrated that, using remote assistance, it is possible to meet most of needs coming from field all over the world: from software assistance to equipment check. With the DAT OnLine service, customers have the possibility to be supported by DAT instruments technician even while checking sensors or electrical cables. If the company is using the new DAT WideLog it is also possible to have a remote assistance in order set it up.

If the Customer cannot do some tests, a DAT instruments technician is always at disposal, on demand, in order to go directly in field to carry out these tests and to show the process to the operator. For the International market, if there is the DAT instruments reseller, the dealer’s technician carries out the ‘on site’ process.

GeoFluid 2018 exhibition has just ended and it had been a very positive experience for DAT instruments. Many visitors had the chance to touch the Italian company data loggers and they could ask all possible questions to technical and commercial staff. The range of data loggers for jet grouting, drilling, dWalls, CFA, GIN, TAM grouting, DAC test, deep mixing, soil mixing, DSM, vibroflotation, hydromills, Lugeon test and mineral investigations has really interested visitors thanks to their versatility and product quality.

DAT instruments production starts from the cheapest but not of a lower quality data logger JET SDP. Two versions are available: JET SDP / IB and JET SDP / J. These displays are used during drilling and DAC test works. In the / IB version it is possible to watch real time parameters and to record them, while in the / J version, parameters can be displayed in order to correct in real time inclination, depth or translation rod. The JET SDP / IB or the JET SDP / J are not only allies to execute a perfect work but from the economical point of view too, it is possible to consider the limited budget but have a high quality product.

Top quality range product is the DAT WideLog. Designed and produced directly by DAT instruments, this innovative data logger has a colour monitor and touch screen. This is a very versatile product, extremely resistant and expandable. It lets show on the display many different parameters which are recorded too and that can then be analysed and printed once in office. The touch screen monitor can be used even wearing gloves, making the work of the operator easier in order to check every single detail. The large internal memory records several data, which will be transferred to any device (PC, smartphone, tablet) via a USB pen drive or via the Internet. This opportunity underlines the high quality and innovation level of DAT instruments products. The DAT WideLog has an Ethernet access and a WiFi antenna for Internet connection, making even easier data transfer while working. The DAT instruments data logger is very resistant and has been designed in order to work with brackish weather, extremely high or low temperatures, sand, water and in the most different climate and working conditions. However, DAT WideLog innovations are not finished. It is possible, just purchasing a proper sensor kit, to adapt this data logger to any kind of operation. With one data logger, it is possible to carry out different applications. Top quality and saving money. The system can be also remotely programmed and can be supported through remote-assistance/e-care by DAT instruments technicians for set ups, maintenance or creation of new customized functions. Input channels are not limited but can be extended via interface boards, manufactured by DAT instruments in order to add other parameters to the standard ones.

Between JET SDP and DAT WideLog there are all other DAT instruments data loggers, from JET 4000 AME to JET DSP 100, designed and realized to please every Customer. With such a wide range of quality, it is impossible not to find your instruments!

DAT instruments, datalogger, produzione, scheda WideLog, Made in Italy

All DAT instruments products are completely thought, designed and realized in the headquarters in Cairate, Varese province, North of Italy. An almost craft industry which creates not only high quality products but even customized solutions that can be modified and repaired even after lots of years.

 

A data logger seen in detail

A data acquisition system thought and realized by DAT instruments is made of different parts, which communicate in order to measure, display and record different signals coming from proper sensors, called transducers. These electronic devices convert a mechanical or physic input value into an electric output that can be analogic o digit. The different kind of sensors are measuring depth, length, pressure, flow, quantity, load, weight, current, voltage, speed, acceleration, inclination, rotation, GPS coordinates, temperature, etc. A data logger measures and records different data and can have outputs in order to check other device such as valves, engines, lights, etc. Outputs activate according to special algorithms in function of signals measured in input.

Technology condensate

 It is easy to understand that each DAT instruments data logger is a technology condensate with many components. It has proper protection in order to prevent it to be damaged in case voltage or current values are increasing over max limits. In addition to that, all instruments are protected by ESD systems against static discharges and EMI systems against electromagnetic disturbance. The signal conditioners are devices which convert electric output coming from the analogic sensor (current, voltage) in another kind of signal (usually voltage or frequency) that meets the input requirements of the subsequent processing stage. While the analogue-digital converter converts the analogue signal of the sensor into a digital signal for the CPU, the heart of the datalogger, which is the central processing unit. In general, the CPU is a single microchip that deals with the interpretation of the input signals, the conversion of the data format into numbers or legible graphics, the communication with all peripherals, the sending of data to memory and display, the definition of output signals and communication with the computer.

Really important is the PSU too which ensures safety and reliable function but needs attention while projecting and selecting proper components such as transient filters, surge suppressors, inductors, capacitors and transformers. Fundamental even the non-volatile: data can be stored even without power supply. In addition to this, there is the clock, the display, the keyboard and the communication port (cabled or wireless) to download data to PC. We also underline how DAT instruments data loggers, according to the purchased sensor kit, can be used in many different applications such as: jet grouting, cement injections, TAM grouting, sleeved piles, drillings, DAC test, CFA, deep mixing, soil mixing, DSM, vibroflotation, dWalls, hydromills, Lugeon and Lefranc tests.

 

Amedeo Valoroso, DAT instruments, data logger, Made in Italy

DAT instruments style

“Every DAT instruments data logger”, Amedeo Valoroso, founder and owner of DAT instruments says, “comes from Customer need. It depends on which parameters must be recorded, which graphics must be displayed, how data are should be downloaded and processed. As we produce every part of it, we can change the standard product according to Customer need, changing or updating electronic boards or the software. I want to underline that the whole project is 100% Italian and 100% DAT instruments. Even components are almost all Italian, only a few of them are coming from other European Countries, but they are all tested in our lab. As everything is DAT instruments made, everything can be updated and repaired. Even after years all components are available”.

We notice the highest project attention also according to used materials, top quality, resistant and long lasting. Products such as JET 4000 AME and WideLog are made of stainless steel, they do not oxidize and they do not rust even if used in the most difficult field or condition. The JET WXYZ sensor for dWalls is made of stainless steel and delrin, an extremely resistant and lasting acetal resin. In addition to that, all sensors and all materials are selected according to their quality and strength.

It is fundamental the test phase during which all inputs and all outputs are tested. Using a simulator, all functions, which are going to be used in field, are tested. DAT instruments technical staff is going to record parameters on each channel getting the memory full and downloading data to PC in order to check that everything is correct and that the download in properly working.

DAT instruments Open Day, which occurred on June 8th in its headquarters in Cairate, north of Italy, has underlined the latest creations of DAT instruments in the data loggers and software world for drilling, special foundations and geotechnical tests. This event let the Italian firm show how these instruments can really help the operators. Not only recording but also many other different functions present in the new DAT instruments products such as DAT WideLog and Easy DAT.

Experience, evolution and concreteness

“DAT instruments has been active on the data logger and software for geotechnical and special foundations market for 17 years. We carried out many installations in Italy and worldwide, even in the most remote locations and in the most arduous fields. In these years we have always worked thinking about future and innovation: for example, the new DAT WideLog data logger can send data from field directly to office displaying in real time carried out works. During our Open Day we had a Facebook Live webstreaming as we are really interested in social media trends. In addition to that, we focused on product usability, as sometimes there is no power supply or no Internet connection when we are in field! We are at Customer disposal with spare parts, after sale service and updates always available, even for old instruments“. Amedeo Valoroso (DAT instruments founder and owner) speech is perfectly describing an up to date company that is always thinking about all needs of drilling fields. Needs that for DAT instruments become many opportunities to find solutions and to increase Customer service: from installation to technical assistance in field via telephone or via the Internet.

The Star

The Star of this Open Day has been the DAT WideLog, the latest creation of DAT instruments that is provided with a coloured touch screen monitor of 18,5” (41×23 cm) which shows many different graphics, numbers, gauges and everything is needed by the operator in order to drill or inject in the most precise manner as possible.

The full HD monitor is very resistant and can be used even while wearing gloves. It can display many different data at the same time with graphics that are the max, average and minimum value and pre-established value. The internal memory, almost infinite, records data that can be downloaded via USB pen drive or via Internet: DAT WideLog has both an Ethernet port and WiFi antenna. It is also possible to have a 3G-4G modem. While working, each drill data are transferred to the office in real time. Data can be displayed on any instrument such as PC, smartphone or tablet and files are compatible with Microsoft Excel and OpenOffice Calc. The new data logger can work even in field with saline soil, very high or very low temperatures, sand, water and in the worst adverse atmospheric conditions. The DAT WideLog is made of stainless steel and proper gaskets and IP68 connectors ensure water resistance. The DAT WideLog, according to different kit sensors, can be used in any application such as jet grouting, cement injections, TAM, drilling, DAC test, CFA, deep mixing, soil mixing, vibroflotation, dWalls, hydromill, Lugeon and Lefranc tests.

An unexpected world

During this Open Day many different questions to DAT instruments professionals have underlined that, for many drilling companies, the data logger world is something that must be discovered more and more. Instruments, software and technical support of DAT instruments are a real help for the company, the operator, the Client and the Supervisor. All these people have a real support from DAT instruments in order to make their work easier, more efficient, faster and certified. The possibility to certify the correct execution of a work is very important and it is demanded not only from Supervisors but from the company executing the work too in order to demonstrate that they work in a proper way. This is an additional card to play while contracting.

DAT instruments dataloggers for ageless equipment

DAT instruments dataloggers make the difference. No matter which is the brand of the drilling equipment, of the pump, of the hydromill, of the crane. No matter its dimensions, the date of manufacturing and the technology used. With a competitive price, even the oldest equipment can obtain new and modern functions.

A perfect interface

DAT instruments dataloggers for ageless equipment

Dataloggers produced by DAT instruments can be installed on equipment of any age and dimension. Usually used on equipment such as:

– piston pump, helicoidal gear pump and turbine pump for cement injections, sleeved grouting pipes, injections with packer (TAM grouting);
– gear pump for Lugeon test;
– crane with hydraulic or electric vibrator for vibroflotation;
– drilling machine for drilling or for DAC test, jet grouting, soil mixing, CFA;
– mechanical or hydraulic crane with grab for diaphragm wall (dWalls);
– hydromill.

The datalogger and the mechanical equipment are two independent systems, which are working in parallel. DAT instruments designs sensors in order to be able to interface with any equipment. For this reason, the datalogger matches the system and not the contrary. The brand too is not a fundamental factor. DAT instruments dataloggers can be adaptable to any kind of geotechnical equipment for soil consolidation or special foundation, of any model and of any brand.

 

Advantages

DAT instruments dataloggers for ageless equipment

Any equipment, even the oldest one, with a DAT instruments datalogger can obtain different kind of automatisms. An example of this has occurred in Turin (North of Italy) while building a new metro line. Datalogger has been installed on sleeved grouting pipes (TAM grouting) pumps letting executing four pipes at the same time. Another example has occurred in the Ivory Coast with CFA equipment.

For any kind of work

DAT instruments dataloggers for ageless equipment

With the DAT instruments datalogger it has been possible to control and establish the rod rise speed thanks to solenoid valves already present on the drilling equipment. In case of jet grouting it is possible to obtain perfect steps in time and centimetres. This is what happened in Turkey and in Singapore working with very old equipment.

These functionalities let the company be able to have detailed reports, in any kind of work, which can be directly given to the Construction Supervision. This means saving time and, therefore, saving money and knowing that a great job has been carried out.

In works such as sleeved grouting pipes, free injections, jet grouting or CFA, where automatisms are necessary, using a datalogger the operator only needs to set up pre-established parameters following the project lines. Everything else is carried out by the datalogger making the operator life easier. At the same time, the operator can always watch all parameters in real time through the datalogger display. In this way, even if there are no automatisms, the operator can regulate manually speed, pressure and everything else.

An equipment always ready to be used

Amedeo Valoroso, DAT instruments datalogger, Easy DAT

“Just installing a DAT instruments datalogger”, says Amedeo Valoroso, founder and owner of DAT instruments, “every equipment, even the oldest, can regain the same functions of a modern one. The datalogger records parameters and so it let certify the carried out work. In addition to that, on specific applications such as jet grouting and CFA, the datalogger let automate the process even using a very old drilling equipment. With a low cost, it is possible to obtain the best result”.

The new generation of DAT instruments touch screen dataloggers, such as the new DAT WideLog, display data and graphics directly on the wide and coloured monitor. In addition to that, it is possible to download and display, in real time, all the works and to export data to Microsoft Excel or Openoffice Calc. It is also possible to watch data online even on mobile devices such as tablet or smartphone.
