Temperature Loggers


Temperature Loggers

The iMind Temperature loggers distributed by Cambridge Microprocessor Systems make recording temperature changes over time a breeze.

The device is easily programmed by plugging the iMind Logger into a PC adapter and programming it with the click of the mouse. Programming sets the device clock to the PC clock, sets the recording interval and starts the processor. Once programmed the device is placed where you would like to monitor and the iMind Logger does the rest.

It does not require external power and can operate over the industrial temperature range of -40 to +85. Each logged temperature reading is stored along with a time/date stamp. Up to 2048 readings can be logged at a time with a timing interval of between 60 seconds and 4 hours depending on your requirements.

The low cost Starter Pack comes with everything that you need to get started - iMind Logger, USB PC Adapter, software CD etc. Additional Loggers can be ordered so that you can monitor temperatures in more than one place at a time.

To read the logged data from the device simply plug it back into the PC reader and the data can be downloaded with the click of the mouse. Once on the PC the data can be viewed and reports produced.

This product is used widely by restaurants, temperature controlled transport, pharmacies and surgeries to ensure that items are stored or transported in the correct environment. It has also found uses within the Heating and Ventilation industries and chemical processing.
