The ZL6 Basic data logger requires little setup. Just plug sensors in and the logger starts storing hourly averages of sensor readings. Bluetooth makes it easy to check the settings ensuring everything is just right. It connects up to six METER sensors, so you can monitor different parameters, such as weather, soil moisture, and soil water potential, all at the same time, giving you deeper insight.
The ZL6 Basic is a no-frills, self-contained data logger built to power, read, and log data from six plug and play sensors, which means no programming is necessary. With the ZL6 Basic data logger, you download data via Bluetooth to an app on your smartphone where it can be uploaded to the cloud. Or you can download data via USB. It works best for researchers who have no cell coverage or don’t need continuous data visualization.

Data—there when you need it
User-driven data storage on the cloud allows you to share data with everyone on the project. No more trying to chase down the person who downloaded the data on an unknown hard drive. For automatic data transfer to the cloud, use the ZL6 data logger.
Uncomplicated. Almost unbreakable. And unbelievable.
We engineered the ZL6 Basic data logger to be extremely robust and low maintenance, so you can almost forget about your data logger completely. It’s powered by six alkaline batteries that last up to two years (1 year with ATMOS 41). An IP56-rated enclosure designed for shedding rain makes sure water doesn’t get in. And we’ve added fully round clasps and hinges that won’t break. Cable-free Bluetooth connect makes bringing your computer to the field an unhappy memory. Add on an optional cable security kit to ensure sensor cables don’t get yanked out.
