Data logger essentials for building commissioning

A white paper explains that data loggers are powerful analysis tools and can be used to evaluate complex building relationships and solve control problems.


A white paper from Onset Computer Corp., Bourne, Mass., argues that data loggers are powerful analysis tools that can be used to evaluate complex building relationships and solve control problems.
Data loggers and the subsequent analysis of thousands of points of data can also be a huge waste of time if improperly applied, warns the author. There are standard procedures and techniques that can help assure that the data logging tools are used for maximum effectiveness.
This white paper focuses on stand-alone data loggers in conjunction with the logging capabilities of the building automation system in the context of use by a commissioning provider. It also provides tips and advice on specific procedures and techniques for use of data loggers to analyze building performance.
