What is a data logger?
A Datalogger (also called a temperature recorder) is an electronic device that records temperature data over time or according to its location. It intercepts its data either with an integrated instrument or via external sensors.
Temperature recording thermometers are increasingly based on a digital processor (or computer). They are usually small, battery powered, portable and equipped with a microprocessor, internal memory for storage of sensor data.
Some Dataloggers interface with a computer and use software to activate it, as well as to display and analyze the data collected. While others have a local interface device (keyboard, LCD screen) and can be used as a stand-alone device.
One of the main advantages of using Dataloggers is the ability to automatically collect data 24 hours a day.
Upon activation, temperature loggers are typically deployed and left unattended to measure and record information for the duration of the monitoring period. This allows to have a complete and precise picture of the monitored environmental conditions.
Recording thermometers are ideal for the following applications:
- The transport of goods
- Building temperature control (heating, ventilation and air conditioning)
- Food control
- Vaccine storage in medical establishments
How to access the data recorded by the Data logger?
You have different ways of viewing your saved data depending on the device you select.
In fact, some devices give you direct access to your data either through their displays or through a printing system.
On the other hand, it is also possible to transfer the data intercepted by your temperature logger. Either with a wired system or with a wireless connection. So you can extract your data on your computer, tablet and mobile phone. (Depending on the model chosen) You just need to download the appropriate software.
