Announcing the Release of our New Handy Wireless Data Collector RTR-500DC!

Date Issued: February 15, 2011

T&D is proud to announce the release of our new RTR-500DC (US FCC approved model) in February 2011.

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 recorded 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 continually-changing data.
(EU model will be available in late March 2011)
