581 Rapid Transfer Device

SKU: 581

Just plug it in! The 581 RTD automatically retrieves stored data from your Teledyne ISCO instruments

The 581 Rapid Transfer Device (RTD) is the convenient alternative to using laptop computers in the field. Unlike laptop computers, the 581 RTD requires little or no training, so it can be easily used by anyone on your staff. Simply plug the 581 RTD into the port on your ISCO instrument and your flow, rainfall, water quality, and sampling data are quickly transferred to the RTD. There are no additional cables to carry, and no buttons to push. Data transfer is completely automatic.

Back in the comfort of your office, you can quickly transfer the data from the RTD to your PC for display, storage or printout. Teledyne ISCO offers Flowlink® software​ for analyzing the data collected by your RTD.
