  • The testo 174T mini temperature data logger has a large display and alarm indication that makes it ideal for the continuous monitoring of storage temperature. This temperature measurement logger is long lasting for continuous use and has a high accuracy. The 174T mini temperature measurement logger kit includes a USB interface for data transfer and has free software available as a download for easy data anlysis.
    **CFR 21 Part 11 compliant**
    • Professional software with Excel export function for programming the logger and data analysis.

    The testo 174T is an ideal data logger for the continuous monitoring of temperatures. Because storage temperatures should never exceed specific limit values, the 174T records the temperatures values and alerts when thresholds have been exceeded.

    • High accuracy NTC thermistor sensor for reliable data
    • Easy to read large display that shows current reading and exceeded measurement limits
    • IP65 proection class
    • HACCP compliant
    • Free data logger software available for download

    Please note: One USB interface for data transfer can be used for multiple instruments.

    Monitoring and documentation of the temperature in cold rooms

    Many foods and drugs have to be stored within a specific cold temperature range. This can be done in individual cooled store rooms, but also in specialised cold stores or cold warehouses with high-rack facilities. The temperature must be continuously documented in all these cold storage facilities, because strict rules apply to quality management in both the food and drugs industries.

    Data loggers are usually installed at the so-called critical control points (CCPs) of the cold room, in order to identify any possible temperature deviations and to introduce appropriate countermeasures. Critical points are for instance doors or passages through to other temperature areas within a warehouse.

    Temperature monitoring in deep-freeze rooms for foods

    There are a huge number of facilities where (deep-)frozen food has to be stored. These range from individual deep-freeze rooms on small food producers' sites (e.g. butchers), at restaurants and supermarkets, via deep-freeze rooms in the food industry, through to specialised cold stores / deep-freeze warehouses with high-rack facilities. The temperature must be continuously documented in all these facilities. In Europe, only temperature loggers may be used in this process which are approved according to EN 12830.

    Typically, data loggers are used to measure the air temperature in storage facilities of this kind. The measuring instrument is installed in the deep-freeze room – as far as possible at critical points such as doors or cooling plants – and records the temperature data at defined intervals (typically: 15 minutes).
    The recorded data can then be analysed and archived using special software.

    Monitoring and documentation of transport temperature

    For all goods which react sensitively to temperature fluctuations or have to be stored within a predefined temperature range, uninterrupted measurement data recording and documentation play a major role.
    Incorrect temperature conditions during transport can lead to major losses of quality, including the total loss of value of the products that require monitoring.
    Using a data logger, shipments can be checked for compliance with the specified temperature ranges and the data can then be read, analysed and archived by means of special software.
