Whilst data loggers require minimal interaction, certain processes are repeated time and time again. Luckily, many data logging manufacturers have found a way to overcome this. Manufacturers such as LogTag and Tempsen supply data loggers that give you the option to apply profiles, which come with a range of benefits to help your facility run smoothly.
A data logger profile is where a user can set up the particular programming information that would otherwise be applied to data loggers repetitively on a daily basis. Once it has been created, a user can simply select the desired profile and the data logger will know exactly what needs to be monitored.
Most profile compatible data loggers send the same instructions. When the profile is applied, it will start data monitoring when an action is performed (pressing a start button), record at an interval that spans the duration of the exercise/shipment, then trigger an alert when a user defined temperature is breached.
There are a range of benefits of creating data logger profiles, such as:
The biggest benefit of creating data logger profiles is that it is a huge time-saver. Rather than applying the same setting to your data logger over and over, a profile means that all the configurations are ready and waiting.
Profiles are particularly useful when managing a fleet of data loggers to perform a variety of validation tasks. This includes periodically thermal mapping fridges, freezers and room temperatures. For seamless environmental monitoring, create temperature data logger profiles with the appropriate configuration details for a fridge, freezer and a room and apply the appropriate profile when required.
Data logging profiles are most commonly used by companies undertaking large temperature verification studies for shipments of food and medical products. Having validated profiles always ensures the correct data is recorded and that products are checked against the correct user-defined alarms.
Data logger profiles are a great way of organising your reports, making data analysis much easier. This is because users can analyse the clear configurations of each data logger, making it easy to compare and determine the results.
