Choosing an interchangeable sensor system for your data logger
When choosing your data logger(s), it is important to consider an interchangeable sensor option. The TrackSense® Pro loggers with interchangeable sensors allows you to expand the flexibility of your measuring equipment, by increasing the number of sensor and parameter options available per logger.
These loggers can have the sensors safely removed and replaced by another sensor in order to access hard-to-reach areas or measure different parameters. This in turn reduces the down time of processes when sensors require calibration, allows on-site changes and grants access to real time data communication via a SKY module, which can be attached between the logger and interchangeable sensor.
How to choose the right wireless data logger for your application(s)
There are many factors to consider when choosing a data logging system. At Ellab, we provide data loggers especially developed for validation processes, providing highly accurate measurements and a solid design. Loggers with sensor interchangeability, are also an incorporated part of our product range, both in terms of switching the parameter and the design of the sensor, where we offer internal, rigid and flexible sensors.
There are, however, still some questions that need to be answered in order to find the perfect wireless data logger solution for your specific process:
- What type of application do you work with?
- What does the environment look like - any hard to reach areas?
- How many measuring points are required?
- What is the maximum and minimum temperature of the application?
- Which parameter(s) need to be measured?
- Is there a need for multi-channel wireless data loggers?
- Is a data logger with a flexible sensor required?
- What should the frequency of readings be?
- Is real-time data required?
General purpose of using wireless data loggers
Wireless data loggers are electronic devices used for monitoring and controlling thermal validation processes in industries that require regulatory compliance and process control, such as the food, pharmaceutical and medical industries. The wireless data loggers ensure that the correct parametric conditions are met throughout the different steps in the manufacturing process, which is vital for both the quality of the product and the safety of the consumer. The purpose of using wireless data loggers depends on the industry and application, where they are used to control and approve products and processes through monitoring and validation procedures. This is done by measuring various parameters such as, temperature, pressure, vacuum, relative humidity, conductivity and Co2.
Complying with regulations
The use of wireless data loggers incorporates quality and safety into the various applications, which is of paramount importance in order for industries to comply with regulations set by authorities such as the FDA, ISO9001, GAMP, etc. These regulations require that proper documentation is provided, which can be acquired through a compatible and validated software, where the data is used to produce compliance reports.
Advantages of using wireless data loggers
Wireless data loggers are easy to use and highly reliable as they are designed to withstand harsh environmental conditions, while remaining accurate. They come in different shapes and sizes, of which the smaller versions are typically used for internal mounting in product containers, such as cans or pouches. Flexible sensor(s), made of PTFE or stainless steel, are typically used in hard to reach areas, keeping the whole process area under tight control. Data Loggers with flexible sensors can therefore be a great advantage in these scenarios.
Advantages for the food industry
For the food industry, data logging assists in reducing bacterial growth, through well monitored and highly controlled heating and cooling process, thereby avoiding potential food poisoning. Wireless Data loggers also help to avoid over-cooking products, which ensures that the products are at the maximum quality, by limiting the loss of vitamins and minerals.
Advantages for the pharmaceutical industry
In the pharmaceutical industry, highly controlling the production processes and storage environments, ensures the quality and viability of the products. Furthermore, optimizing processes and improving efficiency, both in terms of saving energy and production costs, as well as limiting machinery/batch failures, are all great advantages of using wireless data loggers.
Advantages for the medical industry and hospitals
For applications in the medical industry and hospitals, wireless data loggers are used to disinfect and clean instruments to avoid bacterial infections.
