What is a temperature data logger used for?
Temperature data loggers are used for temperature and humidity monitoring and are above all employed in the industrial sector, where temperature and humidity play a major role. In this respect, a distinction is made between single-use instruments and long-term monitoring instruments.
How is temperature monitored?
The three most common temperature sensors used with temperature monitoring systems are thermocouples, thermistors, and RTDs. Thermocouples are the most common temperature sensors. They have the widest measurement range and are typically the least expensive but also have limited accuracy — typically ±1-2 °F (±1 °C).
How does a data logger work?
A data logger works by automatically monitoring and recording specific environmental conditions and parameters via their sensor components, then storing the resulting data in their internal memory. They can be configured as either relatively simple single-channel devices or more complex multi-channel versions.
How does a temperature recorder work?
The bimetallic strip is usually made from steel and copper. Because these metals expand and contract at different rates. When one of these metals expand it curls tighter, when one contracts it uncurls slightly. When it curls or uncurls, the data is converted into electric signals, which record the temperature change.
How do I turn on HOBO data logger?
Press and hold the Start/Stop button for 3 seconds to launch the logger. The logger has been launched with a push button stop enabled; press and hold the Start/Stop button for 3 seconds to stop the logger.
How do you use a data logger?
How to set up a data logger
- Install Tinytag Explorer software on your PC.
- Connect the data logger or radio receiver to your PC using a USB cable, USB Inductive Pad or LAN (Ethernet) cable (depending on the logger).
- Click the ‘Launch’ button in Tinytag Explorer to start your data logger.
