The RTR-500DC is a user-friendly wireless communication Data Collector designed for hand-held portability.

By carrying out wireless communication with Data Loggers, it is possible to start and stop recording and collect data from loggers placed in remote locations without having to manually gather them. The collected data can then be easily displayed in graph form in the LCD display of the RTR-500DC, enabling the immediate on-the-spot checking of data.
On-site Graph Display
The data collected to the RTR-500DC can be immediately viewed in graph form on the spot without the need for a computer.
A graph is displayed for each channel of data. It is possible to view, for example, four channels of data measured and recorded by the RTR-574 by pressing the Operation Dial to switch the channel for viewing.
A simple yet functional graph of the RTR-500DC enables you to check the judgement result weather the set Upper/Lower Limit has been exceeded or not, check the highest and lowest readings, as well as zoom in and out.
Monitoring for Warning and Current Readings
Using the monitoring function, the RTR-500DC carries out wireless communication at a set interval with the registered Data Loggers (Remote Units) to monitor Current Readings and Remote Unit Status. The RTR-500DC also monitors for warnings in Data Loggers for which the Upper / Lower Limit settings have been made via the supplied software.
Managing Remote Units in Groups with One RTR-500DC Unit
An RTR-500DC can manage a large number of Remote Units. When registering multiple Remote Units, they can be divided into Groups by location or measurement item, each of which can then be assigned a communication frequency channel. The maximum number of Groups which can be registered in one RTR-500DC Unit is 7 (seven). Within each group the maximum number of Remote Units which can be registered is 32 (If using RTR-505 or RTR-574 or RTR-576 the max is 16).

It didn't work

Hi Vincent, Please confirm that you have purchased the correct sensor for your base station. It's also possible that the base station is defective. Please contact us for assistance.
Great unit for the price.

Easy to set up and use, easy to see from a distance. A great unit for the price, I will buy another to replace another old one.

I did submit a very positive review. But this rating software keeps prompting me as though you aren't getting it. Must hang up. Sorry.

Better than original

Easy to install. Works well, totally satisfied !
