he monitoring of environmental temperature is very important for many different applications. For cold food storage it is necessary to ensure that the product is always stored properly to maintain quality and for safety to prevent bacteria growth. The monitoring of temperature is critical through all stages in food distribution. This includes from the time it is packaged and stored to transportation to the local market or restaurant. The HI144-10 will help to be compliant in recording temperatures as part of a HACCP monitoring program.
For building maintenance these loggers can track the environmental temperatures of an office or warehouse to ensure that heating or air conditioning thermostats are programmed correctly and that the hot or cold air is distributed evenly.
Using the supplied PC software HI144-10 can be programmed to record the temperature in intervals from 1 minute to 24-hour can store up to 8,000 readings. The reading can be reviewed on a PC in both table and graphical formats. The graphing function allows the readings to be scaled for increased resolution and, if programmed, to see them in relation to the low and high alarms.
All of the programming is done through a USB docking cradle and PC software. The PC software offers graphical user interface for customizing the settings of the data logger. Once programmed the data logger can be set to start by using the PC, at a specific date/time, by push button start on the logger itself.
The HI144-10 is supplied with the HI144T-Logger, USB cradle, wall mount with lock and software. At a reduced cost, additional HI144 T-loggers can be ordered without the cradle and software. Each T-logger has its' own unique serial number to identify individual units.
