TerraLoggerMS provides a complete data logging system for the Bartington MS-2 and MS-3 magnetic susceptibility meters and includes everything needed to start collecting data in the field. The system consists of both the hardware and the software to store measurements straight to files using any of the MS meters and sensors.


  • Specifically designed for use with the MS-2 & -3 meters
  • Supports the MS2D, MS2K and MS2H sensors.
  • 7 logging modes covering Positioned (grid), Timed (downhole) and GPS modes
  • Generates TerraSurveyor Files.
  • Rugged Android based handheld computer.
  • Complete kit. It includes all hardware and software including shoulder bag, transport case, batteries and cables.



TerraLoggerMS opens up a new field of use for MS-2 and MS-3 users. Long recognized as an outstanding laboratory instrument, the MS-2 and MS-3 magnetic susceptibility meters have however been difficult to use in the field. This kit provides everything needed to transport and use the meters in most environments.

The datalogger’s internal GPS allows accurate positioning of  very large, low resolution, area surveys. If available, high accuracy GPS data from an external source can also be used to position recorded data.

Data is saved as TerraSurveyor or TerraSurveyor3D compatible files. No need to export or import the data, just share the data between the datalogger and your PC and open it. Data can also be saved in simple XYZ format for use with other programs.

Components in Transport Case



The TerraLoggerMS software has been designed for simple field use with large buttons, audible indications of all operations and clear, function driven operation. The layout has been designed for single handed operation (either left or right) with > 95% of in-survey operations achievable with just one thumb.

It can be used with all MS2/3 sensors though it is primarily intended for the MS2D field survey and MS2H downhole probes.

The system currently supports 7 different modes for collecting data with these probes using combinations of Grid, GPS and Timed interval to position the data.

Mode grid and interval parameters can be user set and saved as templates for repeated use. The modes can be easily extended to cover other collection methods once identified.

User named ‘Site’ folders can be created on the datalogger to support multiple survey locations. Grid, Composite or Core files are automatically numbered within these folders.

Survey files can be transferred to a PC using any Android ‘Share’ method (e.g. Bluetooth, Dropbox, Email, etc.)
