3. Introduction  

3B NETlog™ is a multimedia data acquisition 
and evaluation system for current and voltage 
measurements and for measurements using 
sensors. The system can be used with or with-
out being connected to a computer. With the 
accompanying 3B NETlab™ software, meas-
urements can be conducted with arbitrarily 
chosen parameters as well as in prepared 
experiments. The prepared experiments take 
the user through an interactive experimental 
environment where the measurement parame-
ters have already been defined. When used-
within a network, the teacher and students can 
mutually monitor their results. 
The Ethernet port allows the 3B NETlog™ unit 
to be directly connected to a local network, so 
that data can be sent to any computer in the 
network for evaluation. In order to use the unit 
with Ethernet an intranet in the same sub-
network must be in place. 
Without being connected to a computer, the 
3B NETlog™ device can be used as a digital 
multimeter for current and voltage measure-
ments. Combined with different sensors, the 
3B NETlog™ equipment can also be used as a 
handheld unit with automatic sensor recogni-
tion.
