174T Starter Set Data Logger incl. Logger, USB cradle interface, wall mount plate & lock, calibration protocol. The mini data logger for temperature, testo 174T, is ideal for accompanying transports. Simply positioned close to the goods, e. g. in containers and refrigerated rooms, the data logger monitors temperature continuously, securely and unobtrusively. The free software ComSoft testo 174 allows fast programming of the data logger and easy analysis. High data integrity, even with empty battery Large measurement data memory Watertight in accordance with IP65 Compact and robust Conforms to EN12830 Issue of alarms via display Data transfer to the PC via USB interface Reliable temperature measurement for the monitoring of cold chains and sensitive goods during storage and transport Easy readout of data and transfer to a PC via Testo USB interface In order to operate you require the docking station (0572 0500). This is included in the price when purchasing a set.
Monitoring and documentation of the temperature in cold rooms
Many foods and drugs have to be stored within a specific cold temperature range. This can be done in individual cooled store rooms, but also in specialised cold stores or cold warehouses with high-rack facilities. The temperature must be continuously documented in all these cold storage facilities, because strict rules apply to quality management in both the food and drugs industries.
Data loggers are usually installed at the so-called critical control points (CCPs) of the cold room, in order to identify any possible temperature deviations and to introduce appropriate countermeasures. Critical points are for instance doors or passages through to other temperature areas within a warehouse.
Monitoring and documentation of transport temperature
For all goods which react sensitively to temperature fluctuations or have to be stored within a predefined temperature range, uninterrupted measurement data recording and documentation play a major role.
Incorrect temperature conditions during transport can lead to major losses of quality, including the total loss of value of the products that require monitoring.
Using a data logger, shipments can be checked for compliance with the specified temperature ranges and the data can then be read, analysed and archived by means of special software.
