Temperature And Humidity Data Loggers
Improve Cold Chain Visibility
Monitoring time and temperature data of your perishable products during distribution and storage doesn’t have to be cumbersome, complicated or expensive.
With the Emerson family of GO Loggers, you’ll gain visibility into your shipments cold chain, so you can know what happens to your cargo when it is outside of your direct control. These insights allow you to uncover areas of improvement within your supply chain and pinpoint issues that impact food quality and safety decisions.
Emerson Data Loggers in New Zealand
Our Emerson temperature and humidity data loggers record measurements across the globe! With these cold-chain solutions, you will be able to monitor and record environmental parameters over a certain time period when your perishable goods are outside of your direct control. This allows conditions to be analysed, validated, measured and documented. Emerson data loggers contain a humidity sensor that receives cold-chain monitoring data and a computer chip or USB to store the information on so that you know what’s happening with your cargo while you’re not there.
Why would you use a data logger?
When you need to monitor the temperature or humidity levels of perishable goods such as food, medicine, logistics, blood, chemicals, electronics or industrial products in distribution or storage.
Data Logger Measurements
Different types of data logger measurements include light intensity, air temperature and humidity. These different measurements depending on the particular data logger. Data logger also helps in measuring differential pressure.
Choosing the Right Data Logger
There are a wide range of temperature and humidity data loggers available so it is important to know the key factors to look for while deciding on what data logger will work for your situation.
The first step in choosing a temperature or humidity data logger is deciding what parameters you need to measure. Whether it is to record temperature & humidity, CO2 or location, Precision Monitoring have a wide range of temperature and humidity data loggers to suit your requirements.
The next step in choosing your data logger is when and how you would like to download your data. If you are able to wait until the end of the trip to download the data, a generic data logger is a suitable option. If you would like your data in Real-Time while your product is in transit, you will be better suited to our range of Real-Time Temperature Trackers instead.
The traditional USB data loggers like the GO PDF Mini & Xpress PDF are universally accepted around the world. They can be plugged into any computer, and create a PDF & CSV file with no proprietary software. If you would like wireless access to your data, the GO NFC utilizes your smartphone as the reader, and allows for upload into the cloud, for centralized safekeeping of your records.
Single-use data loggers are ideal in export situations when you are sending products around the globe. Reusable data loggers are suitable for closed-loop logistic scenarios when you can recover the loggers and reuse them.
Other Important factors to consider:
At Precision Monitoring, we offer a wide range of temperature and humidity data loggers to ensure you can track your perishable cargo the correct way.
How to use a data logger?
Activate your data logger by pressing and holding the “Start” button located in the lower left-hand corner of the logger for a minimum of 2 seconds. The data logger’s LEDs will flash to indicate successful activation. Using the glue dot on the back of the logger, apply logger to the provided “Find It Sign” and pouch. Alternatively, apply the data logger directly to the product packaging. An LED will flash every four seconds to indicate active temperature or humidity readings.
Data logger Placement Scenarios
Pallet Level Placement
Many customers apply data loggers to the side of a pallet. Precision Monitoring provides signage and clear plastic pouching to facilitate locating data loggers on pallets. Many customers place several data loggers on different pallets within a load to record temperature within a wide range and perform temperature mapping. This promotes broader sampling and provides more detailed information on the recorded temperature fluctuations experienced within a container.
Carton Level Placement
Many customers with high-value products, where recording temperature specifications are critical, may choose to use data loggers on each individual carton inside a master case.
Product Level Placement
Data loggers are sealed in a plastic pouch and take surface level temperature readings of the object to which they are attached. They can be placed in or laid directly on top of the product for highly accurate temperature readings.
In order to facilitate finding data loggers, it is recommended that placement of the data logger is clearly flagged on the outside of the packaging. Precision Monitoring provides customers with “Find It” signs to make finding the data logger process easy.
Data storage is important, regardless of the application. Data storage is guaranteed even when the data logger has stopped recording. This ensures continued data analysis of either temperature or humidity levels in the future. Data in both the PDF file and the embedded CSV file (if generated) cannot be altered.
As an uneditable PDF, these files on the label are 21 CFR 11 compliant.
USB Temperature & Humidity Data Loggers
Data loggers with a USB feature work effectively in generating a PDF as soon as they are placed into a USB port on a device, giving you the data immediately.
Advantages of a USB temperature data logger:
Our Emerson USB data loggers include:
Wireless Temperature and Humidity Data Loggers
Wireless data loggers support the use of Android and iOS devices and eliminate the need for proprietary readers. This means your temperature & humidity data will be available immediately on scanning the logger via the mobile application, which you can download here.
Our Emerson wireless data loggers include:
View Your Records 24/7 with Cloud-Based Access
If you want access to historical temperature data, ensure you look into a temperature data logger that offers cloud-based access. This will allow you to view historical temperature records and data 24/7. At Precision Monitoring, the GO NFC temperature data logger offers cloud access as well as quick data downloads via mobile app or pad reader.
