In this article, you will learn the Pros and Cons of the Temperature Dataloggers for thermal mapping and other validation studies in Puerto RicoIn addition, you can learn how to get a Thermal Mapping Validation Template and Validation Management Software Application to handle your qualification activities more efficiently.

The Top 3 Pros and Cons of the Temperature DataLoggers.

Pros of the Temperature Dataloggers.

1. Price. The low cost of the temperature data loggers allows the users to save time and money by launching and leaving a logger unattended to take time-stamped measurements, rather than having to be on-site themselves.

2. Project Duration. Since many temperature data loggers can be installed for monitoring at the same time, the project duration is reduced and enhanced the amount of data available for study and evaluation.

3. Extended Monitoring Periods. Data loggers can be deployed for prolonged periods of time because they use long battery life.

For long-term measurements of temperature, & relative humidity that extend over days, weeks, and months, data loggers are the best option as measuring instruments. Pros and Cons of the Temperature DataLoggers

Data loggers are low-cost and readily available for buying or leasing.

Cons of the Temperature Dataloggers.

  1. Typically, the temperature data loggers have a high failure rate. It means that they are not completely reliable and durable as hardwire sensors as the thermocouples or RTD’s, which are designed for hard work under rough environmental conditions.
  2. Temperature data loggers are not so useful for logging thermal conditions experienced in transit, as might be required when shipping perishable products. Pros and Cons of the Temperature DataLoggers
  3. Since they contain several electronic elements that need to operate within a working temperature range, data loggers are not suitable in very high or low-temperature environments out of their intended design.

CIQA can bring you validation services, as well as the rental of the data loggers to make the temperature and relative humidity monitoring.

Thermal studies require the use of very expensive validation instrumentation and equipment, which represent a high cost in many cases if the utilization of that equipment is very low. Pros and Cons of the Temperature DataLoggers

Since some companies do not have the internal personnel with the experience and knowledge to perform these studies, they contract third-party companies as CIQA Engineering to make that work. Thermal Mapping Outcomes

CIQA Engineering has the equipment and experienced professionals to perform the thermal mapping and qualifications. We can prepare the protocols, bring the measurement instruments for monitoring, make the analysis and reporting documents once the data is gathered. Pros and Cons of the Temperature DataLoggers

Recommendations to Avoid Mistakes Selecting Temperature Data Loggers.

We suggest evaluating all your requirements and needs to use temperature data loggers, but, also consider the frequency of use monthly, and how fast you need them on-site for your validation study.

So, you can determine if is better to buy or rent them based on the expertise and time availability of your employees to configure and prepare the trending graphs and summary statistical reports on time.

Before buy, consider the cost of the data loggers, but, also the cost of the calibration and its lead time.

Evaluate and compare the total costs and lead times, against the costs to rent data loggers already calibrated.

If you are NOT using temperature data loggers frequently, consider a fast CIQA rental of the calibrated data loggers required for the thermal study. Thermal Mapping Outcomes
