Information

Product Description

Please Note: This data logger requires a LogTag USB cradle and a LogTag external temperature probe.

The TREX-8 is a cost-effective temperature data logger is ideal for measuring several data ranges due to the variety of temperature sensors available. It features the industries best download time with up to 3 years battery life, ‘OK’ and ‘ALERT’ indicators with high and low customisable alarms. Choose from 10 PTFE external sensor probe options to record up to 8,000 temperature readings and extract or analyse data with ease using the LogTag USB cradle and data logger software.

Guidance for using the TREX-8 for vaccine temperature monitoring

Dampen temperature response times with the thermal dampener, a clean and adaptable alternative to traditional Glycol buffers. Following the guidance of the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention, LogTag created the probe dampener to help in simulating the temperature of vaccine stored within fridges. Buffering the temperature readings helps to avoid collecting transient temperature spikes caused by opening and shutting doors and the oscillation of fans inside fridges used to control temperature.  The dampener, when used in conjunction with standard operating  procedures outlined in the CDC guidance document will help with vaccine storage routines an minimise alarms and impact on product quality.

TREX-8 features

The TREX-8, used in conjunction with a temperature sensor is suited to applications requiring high quality, low cost measurement of air, liquids, tight spaces or surfaces temperature over the range -40 to +99°C.

The LogTag TREX-8 temperature data logger offers faster configuration and download speeds than direct USB equivalents along with user defined ‘batch profile’ configurations that incorporate recording intervals and alarm thresholds.
