Portable Temperature Data Logger

Log temperatures - and then graph them!

The Portable Temperature Logger is a single channel logging device that can record up to 52,000 measurement samples of temperature in user selectable intervals ranging from 1 second to 12 hours. The unit can then be connected to your computer via USB for retrieving and graphing the data using the included software.

In addition to recording samples at set intervals, the Portable Temperature Logger can also record events (such as low battery, button pushes, or connection to a PC). So, you can press the button on the front of the logger unit for one second and the unit will record "button down" and "button up" events. This is useful if you want to mark the datafile at a certain point in time, for later reference. The unit can be programmed to start at a specific time and date or via a manual push-button start.

This gadget is great for server rooms, wine cellars, mad scientist laboratories, caffeine storage facilities, or any location where temperature is an important consideration. It can also be used around the home to check for furnace short-cycling or programmable thermostat settings.
