ZL6 Pro Data-logger

Everything included, and more

If time is a luxury you don't have, and labor is at a premium, you'll love the new world-class ZL6 Pro. The ZL6 Pro logger is an all-in-one package for people who want state-of-the-art, cloud-based data delivery without spending much time and effort on it. It puts data collection and management on auto-pilot, so you can focus on what you love. How? It's got everything the ZL6 logger offers, plus, we've added things like automated 15-minute real-time data uploads, automatic cloud backup, free install kit, 3 years of free yearly tune-ups, an increased 3-year warranty and free ZENTRA Cloud for up to 4 years. Plus, the Zl6 Pro data logger is simple to install, uber-robust and comes with Bluetooth® configuration, GPS, firmware-over-the-air updates, and integrated metadata, all which automate, simplify and speed up the process of data collection, management and sharing.

Automate your life

The ZL6 Pro data logger uses ZENTRA Cloud to automatically deliver near-real-time data wherever and whenever you need it, every 15 minutes (more often than the ZL6). Accessing data on ZENTRA Cloud speeds up your analysis by enabling you to correlate event factors, see important trends, or discover problems almost instantly, from the comfort of your own desk. This means your grad students can spend less time downloading data in the field, and more time generating research papers.

Plus, data are incredibly easy to distribute and share. Simply enter an email and send an invitation. Your collaborators can instantly see what you see. The ZL6 Pro and ZENTRA Cloud allow you and others to review data the way you want, whether it's in map format, short graphs, a list, or downloading to data-analysis packages. Not only that, the ZL6 Pro package comes with a free 3+ year subscription, so you don't have to worry about renewals. Cloud data backup is now automatic so you don't ever have to think about it.

Do almost nothing. See almost everything.

With the ZL6 Pro, almost everything about data collection and management is automated, so you and your team can focus on data. Not distractions. Plus, free yearly tune-ups for 3 years and an increased 3-year warranty mean you no longer have to worry about upkeep. Together, the ZL6 Pro and ZENTRA Cloud make it easy to connect all the critical tools you need to understand the soil-plant-atmosphere continuum, so you can analyze your data faster, and at a much deeper level. Get near-instant data anytime, anywhere, in any form that you need it, so you'll never miss another important data insight.
