The most common question caused by thermal latency… “Why doesn’t the logger show the same temperature as the fridge?” There are a number of reasons why two temperature monitoring devices (like a logger and a fridge thermometer) will disagree. In this post I want to just focus on temperature latency. In laymen’s terms, temperature latency […]
I was recently asked to make a daily min/max graph. I questioned the wisdom of this and showed how it was built on old compromises that don’t need to exist anymore. It’s time to move on.
Twenty years ago we had domestic fridges with min/max thermometers and had to daily downloads to ensure they weren’t freezing. Now we have vaccine fridges and temperature loggers, and we are still downloading daily. Why?
This quick and simple video explains what the sample rate is and provides advice on how to work out what it should be for your application. If you would like more advice please contact us directly.
This is the transcript for one of our new training videos. This short video will take you through how to program a temperature logger using the eTemperature software. When eTemperature is running you will see the message “Waiting” at the top. When you plug a Thermochron into the reader you will see this message change […]
I thought it would be easy to come up with a new product name. But with the wireless loggers rapidly approaching final release, choosing a new product name is becoming more urgent. Here’s the dilemma. The name has to meet the following criteria: It must be easy to remember. When someone mentions it to someone […]
This is the transcript for one of our new training videos: This short video will take you through how to save results from a Thermochron temperature logger using the eTemperature software. When eTemperature is running you will see the message “Waiting” at the top. When you plug a Thermochron into the reader you will see […]
One of the critical settings when programming a Thermochron logger is the sample rate. The sample rate is how often the unit will record the date/time and temperature. The faster it samples, the faster it will consume its memory. That is why below the sample rate is a display of how long the memory will […]
If the logger is not stopped before reaching the end of its memory it will do one of two things: Stop logging Rollover to the start and start recording over the existing data, from the oldest reading first. Putting it another way, it will contain either: The first 2,000 readings, or The most recent 2,000 […]
This temperature logger comparison will cover the similarities and key differences between the Logtag Temperature Logger and Thermochron Temperature Loggers. Selecting the best temperature logger is much like selecting the best car – it all comes down what features you really care about. The similarities Fundamentally the Logtags and Thermochrons are the same. They both […]
