Are Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Ethernet-equipped ELITEpro XC/SP instruments compatible with ELOG 11?
No, ELITEpro XC/SP instruments with additional communications options are not compatible with ELOG 11. They must be used with ELOG 12 or newer. However, “older” ELITEpro SP instruments without additional communication options are also compatible with ELOG 12. Contact DENT support to obtain ELOG software that is compatible with your meter.
Does the ELITEpro XC/SP have an internal battery?
The ELITEpro XC does have an internal battery, but it is only for powering the logger’s internal clock–it does not power the ELITEpro XC. The ELITEpro XC is line powered, but maybe also be powered from a USB connection (during meter configuration) or from a wall transformer (sold seperately). Request a quote on a wall transformer here.

What is the typical lifespan of the clock battery?
The typical battery life is 10 years. The battery is not user replaceable. Contact us for replacement information.
What type of antenna is available with the Wi-Fi option?
ELITEpro XC loggers that are equipped with a Wi-Fi package contain an internal antenna. An external antenna is optional (and can be ordered in addition to the internal antenna–that is, a logger with external antenna will also have an internal antenna). You may toggle between using the internal and external antenna (if it is available on your logger) by checking or unchecking the Use External Antenna checkbox in ELOG.
Which CTs can I use with my ELITEpro XC/SP?
The ELITEpro XC is compatible with any split-core, clamp-on, or flexible RoCoil current transformers found on the DENT website. Any CTs that are compatible with the legacy ELITEpro instrument are also compatible with the ELITEpro XC.
