UEG Data Loggers

Project scope

Data logging describes a process whereby information generated by a gas detection device is stored in a manner allowing for future retrieval and analysis. Data logger usage within the Australian Gas Supply industry has been growing exponentially over the last five years, with a vast array of instrument manufacturing companies entering the Australian market. With the operating platform for data recording technology being standardised across utilities, there is growing need for data loggers being appropriately qualified to install, disconnect and reconnect these systems. Rapid advancements in data logging technology, along with its versatility across a range of Gas Supply utilities, indicates a need for additional skills for gas technicians within the industry and this project will develop the requisite new Units of Competency.

With the operating platform for data recording technology being standardised across utilities, there is growing need to for data loggers being appropriately qualified to install, disconnect and reconnect these systems. The Gas IRC has proposed a project to develop new Units of Competency to install, operate, disconnect, and reconnect fixed and portable data logger systems for use by gas technicians.
