Data loggers, in most cases, are easy to deploy and can be used as standalone
devices without a computer. More importantly, the measurement accuracy offered by today’s most advanced data loggers rivals the performance of many higher priced, computer-based data acquisition systems.
However, not all temperature data loggers are created equal and with so many choices available today, it can be challenging to know which one is right for your application.
Here are 5 things to consider when choosing a Temperature Data Logger:
1. Know your accuracy requirements
Accuracy specifications vary widely among different types of data loggers and a good understanding of specific accuracy requirements will help you avoid paying for accuracy you might not need.
2. Anticipate your data access needs
Do you need short or long-term trend logging with manual offload? Or maybe you need wireless real time data to be accessible from anywhere anytime.
3. Look for time-saving features
Time is money, so you’ll want to make sure the temperature data logger you select has a feature set that will make the process of field deployment simple and reliable for you.
4. Don’t overlook the software
The software should enable you to quickly and easily perform tasks such as configuring parameters, starting the data logger and offloading data with point and-click simplicity.
5. Consider power requirements
As a general rule of thumb, make sure the data logger you select has a battery life of at least one year at the logging rate you need. Also, replaceable batteries can be more convenient too.
