Our data loggers fall into four general temperature categories:
  • General Purpose - Most of our loggers are considered general purpose and monitor within the -20 to 85°C temperature range.
  • -40 to 85°C
    • DS1921G
    • DS1922L
    • DS1925L
    • MaxiLog-RTD
    -29 to 72°C
    • 3C\TEMP-USB
    • 3C\TEMP-RH
  • High Range- The DS1922T-F5# (0 to 125°C) and DS1922E-F5# (15 to 140°C) loggers are tailored to high temperature monitoring applications.

  • Ultra-Low Range- The Ultra-Low MicroDL w/ Flat Flex Probe is tailored to low temperature monitoring applications and monitors temperatures down to -80°C (e.g. shipments containing dry ice, ultra-low freezers).

  • Precise Range- The DS1921H-F5# (15 to 46°C) and DS1921Z-F5# (-5 to 26°C) loggers monitor a smaller temperature range but offer better resolution than the general purpose DS1921G-F5#.

How many readings must the logger store?

The data loggers we offer fall into the following general capacity ranges: 2KB, 8KB, 32KB, 64KB, and 122KB.

Will the logger be submerged?

All of our temperature data loggers offer a minimum IP rating of IP54 (which means they are protected against water splashed from any direction).  However, applications which require submersion should use either a Thermochron iButton in combination with a DS9107+ Waterproof iButton Capsule, or one of our data loggers which feature a submersible stainless steel probe (MAXILOG-RTD or MicroDL w/ Stainless Steel Probe).   
Do you need visual indication of alarm status?

The MicroDL, MaxiLog, and 3C/TEMP loggers offer visual alarm notifications via their LCD displays.  Alarm indication is also available for the Thermochrons/Hygrochron loggers through the use of either the THDC 400 handheld data downloader or the Thermochron Ethernet Server, TC-SERVER-ENET.

Is Mac support required?

All of our products offer a Windows PC software option for temperature/humidity configuration and data retrieval. For individuals who wish to use other platforms, our TC-SERVER will allow web enabled devices to configure and collect Thermochron & Hygrochron data using a standard web browser. This extends device support to Macs, iPhones, iPads, Android powered devices, and many more!

Do you need ambient or internal temperature?

The vast majority of our temperature data loggers are designed to monitor ambient temperature; however, we offer three loggers with external probes which can be used for monitoring internal temperatures:
  • Maxilog-RTD - This food grade logger has a 5" stainless steel probe which is attached by a 20" cable. 
  • MicroDL w/ Stainless Steel Probe - These food grade loggers have either a 2.78" or a 6.02" length stainless steel probe attached directly to the back of the logger. 
  • Ultra-Low MicroDL w/ Flat Flex Probe - These ultra-low loggers monitor extremely cold environments, as low as -80°C. The LCD display is kept outside the ultra-low environment; while the RTD probe, located on the opposite end of a 20" long flat flexible cable, is kept inside the ultra-low environment.
