Kipling 3 Enters Public Beta

Kipling received a version number increment to put it inline with our latest (windows only) version of Kipling that is released in our main installer and is considered to be in a public beta phase. This version of Kipling may have a few bugs, however it is a big improvement to the currently distributed version of Kipling and is recommended to almost all customers using a T7/T7-Pro.

More information about Kipling and how to get the latest version can be found on the Kipling Support page.

Developments in LabJack software

We are continually making improvements to our software and libraries - here are some highlights from the last few months:

LJM Library

Digit with replaceable CR1632 battery!

The popular Digit-(TL/THL) series loggers now has a replaceable CR1632 battery! Another key improvement is the addition of a clear plastic enclosure so that light readings can operate while inside. If customers prefer the rugged aluminum enclosure, it can be purchased as an add-on item. See the Digit-TL/TLH product page for more information.

1 Year in the pond - Digit-TL reliability test

When we first started selling Digit-TL devices, we decided to stow one outside under a rock, and another in the pond to see how they'd hold up. After 6 months we downloaded the results to verify operation, and everything looked good, so we threw them back out. Now, after a full year, they're still going strong. See the data and photos below.

Each day is a small spike, and the yearly trend is shown by the overall shape of the graph. The two curves on the graph demonstrate how the water acts as a thermal buffer by regulating fluctuations in daily temperature.  If you look carefully, you can tell when there is snow covering the Digit-TL on land, because the temperature fluctuation is minimal (like the Digit-TL in the water).

Bobcat & Tube

Great video filmed Sunday morning outside the kitchen of a LabJacker's house ... just about a mile from the LabJack office in Lakewood, CO.

A rabbit has been living in this tube (drain pipe) for the last couple weeks.  Sunday morning our local bobcat found it and spent a full hour trying to get at the rabbit before he finally gave up.



Custom PC Water Cooling

"Performance of the computer is somewhat secondary to the performance of my cooling system."

This Goliath PC cooling setup runs on a complex network of piping, refrigeration, water tanks, and wiring.  The chiller and chiller tank pumps are controlled by hand and the rest is controlled with the U3-LV's and DaqFactory.  It was designed and built by a customer in Ontario, Canada.  Expand the post for more information on the setup, and details on how it was built.

 

Digit-TL is now available

Have an urge to measure the temperature in your refrigerator, attic, or car?  The Digit-TL might be just what you need.  LabJack is proud to announce the arrival of a new family of data loggers, the Digit Series.  

Holiday TurDuckEn!

It's a Chicken inside of a Duck, inside of a Turkey! In terms of LabJack projects, this goes a bit off the beaten path.  One of our employees demonstrates his skills as a chef while also testing out a prototype of our new Digit series logging device.  Inspired by J. Kenji Lopez-Alt, from The Food Lab at Serious Eats.  The Food Lab is an intersection of science and food.  A great source for geeks who like to cook!
