Understanding thermal latency and using the capsule

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 […]

Why would you want a daily min/max graph?

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.

Have we lost our way with vaccine monitoring?

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?

Data logger sample rate explained

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.

Training video: Setting up temperature loggers using eTemperature

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 […]

Choosing a new product name

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 […]

Training video: Saving results

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 […]

eTemperature Configuration – Sample Rate

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 […]

Humidity Loggers

The Logtag and Thermochron range of humidity loggers have now been reduced in price. For less than $100 you can now log both temperature and humidity. They both offer simultaneous temperature and humidity readings but are aimed at slightly different markets: The LogTag humidity logger is ideal for when you require a visual alarm indicator […]

eTemperature Configuration – Allow rollover

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 […]
