In this article, you will learn the Temperature Data Logger definition and why these devices are important and necessary for thermal mapping and other validation studies in Puerto Rico. Moreover, you can learn how to get a Thermal Mapping Validation Template and Validation Management Software Application to handle your qualification activities fast and easily.
A Temperature data logger is a small and portable electronic device that automatically measure and record temperature readings (sometimes % relative humidity values) during a period of time.
It allows to monitor the environmental conditions and save it continuously without human intervention.
The temperature information is stored in the internal memory of the data logger. Then, the temperature information can be transferred or downloaded to a computer for analysis.
Most temperature data loggers are battery-powered for sampling and saving the data at a pre-determined lapse of time. (e.g., every 1 minute, 5 minutes, etc.) Temperature Data Logger definition
The temperature data logger (also datalogger or data recorder) is built with a digital microprocessor, internal memory for data storage, battery, and temperature sensor.
They make an interface with a computer using a software application and drivers to connect and download the collected data.
More advanced temperature data loggers may have a keypad, LCD display, and wireless connection.
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
One of our data logger experts can set up, configure and bring to you the data loggers ready to use and be installed to collect information from your thermal mapping study. At the end of your monitoring, you can send the data loggers back to us for data extraction, evaluation, and perform the statistical analysis and plotting with averages, maximums, and minimums.
