A data logger is an electronic device designed to automatically monitor and record environmental conditions such as temperature, humidity, and more. Generally, they are compact portable devices that contain a sensor and internal memory to record & store monitored data. Once the information is stored in the data logger it can be transferred to a computer for analysis and used for regulatory compliance, research, quality control, and validation.
There is a wide range of data loggers that can measure various physical characteristics and parameters such as temperature, humidity, voltage, pressure, light sensitivity, current, and many more. Digital data loggers allow for efficient and accurate measurement and documentation without the need for constant manual human observation.
A range of industries worldwide benefits from their functionality daily. Some of these industries include:
One of the most common and widely-used applications of data loggers is for environmental monitoring in both medical and research laboratories. From proper sterilisation of medical equipment to temperature monitoring during the manufacture, storage, and transportation of medical samples, drugs, and vaccines, temperature data loggers are used every step of the way in this industry. Data logging solutions help ensure that products stay effective and safe for consumers to use.
