Gemini Data Loggers has launched a Tinytag thermocouple data logger which provides monitoring for a broad spectrum of temperature ranges.
The TGU-4550 Tinytag Ultra 2 thermocouple data logger supports the most popular thermocouples types – K, J, T and N – providing monitoring for temperature ranges from -200°C to 1350°C, depending on the type being used.
This makes it suitable for the accurate monitoring standards demanded by the food processing industry, to the extremes of temperature experienced in hot industrial processes such as smelting, right through to conditions experienced in freezers.
Thermocouples are available either as bare wire, offering lower cost and faster response times, or built into probes designed for specific uses depending on their type of construction or insulation material used. The logger also has a built-in temperature channel allowing the particular process and the ambient air temperature to be monitored simultaneously.
The thermocouple logger incorporates a connection that supports both standard and miniature thermocouple plugs. The unit features burn out response – the option to configure the logger to drive readings either low or high in the event of thermocouple failure, making it obvious to the user that a problem has occurred.
The compact, stand-alone logger has a battery that lasts for over a year and is compatible with the Tinytag Explorer software. Data is downloaded to a PC via a USB connection where the software clearly presents the data as graphs and tables.
A starter pack including the logger, USB connection and the Tinytag Explorer software is available.
