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 […]

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 […]

Temperature Logger Comparison

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 […]

Common temperature logger mistakes 2

After common temperature logger mistake 1 of not being turned on, mistake number 2 is reported to us less, but more common… Common temperature logger mistakes: Sampling too slowly There are many users who set their sample rate to one sample every couple of hours. This is typically 4 hours for the Thermocron and even […]

Common temperature logger mistakes 3

After common temperature logger mistake 2 of sampling too quickly, mistake number 3 is the exact opposite. Common temperature logger mistakes: Sampling too quickly There are some users who sample as fast as possible. This is typically once a minute for Thermochron loggers and possibly even faster for Logtags. The likely cause For the sampling too slowly issue, […]

Tools for environmental monitoring

Why use tools for environmental monitoring? Today I had someone ask what tools for environmental monitoring we had. Instead of rattling of a list of equipment I decided to take a step back and consider what needs monitoring and then progress from there. In this particular case it was in regards to trying to decrease […]
