Are tempmate.®-M1 loggers IATA compatible, meaning they can be used in aeroplanes?
Yes, tempmate.®-M1 reusable data loggers use a 3V lithium battery as their power source, which in accordance with IATA regulations, can also be used in aircraft. When dispatching, please attach the following documents to your consignment:
How accurate is the built-in real-time clock (RTC)?
The real-time clock runs from when it was produced. Due to technical factors, there may be a deviation of ±2 minutes after 5 months/±4 minutes after 10 months.
How long does the battery last?
In continuous operation, each battery lasts for about half a year. Battery life depends on the measurement interval and also on storage and usage conditions. The battery can be replaced by the customer.
Are the tempmate.®-M1 loggers validated?
Yes, and with each delivery, you receive a validation certificate free of charge. See sample certificate
Is it possible to analyse tempmate.®-M1 loggers with software and to export the data?
The tempmate.®is optionally compatible with the tempbase.®-D software. This software can manage all the measurement data and export it as a PDF or CSV file. The tempbase.®-D software is available as a free download, either here or in the software download box to the right.
What does the analysis look like in the PDF report?
The temperature profile is presented as a graphic, and all individual measurement values are shown in table form. What’s more, additional statistical information (for example serial number) is also included. See sample PDF report
Why can’t I open the PDF report?
You need Adobe Acrobat, version 9.0 or above, to be able to open the PDF. The latest respective version can be downloaded here: www.get.adobe.com/reader
Is the PDF report protected against manipulation?
Just as is the case with other electronic documents, it is possible to manipulate PDF files. However, even after the data has been analysed, the original data remains stored on the tempmate.®-M1 logger, so that it can always be downloaded again and compared to the questionable PDF report. Therefore, it is important that the loggers are saved until any such queries have been completely clarified.
Will the temperature also be monitored between the measurement intervals?
The temperature will also be recorded between the measurement intervals, and in each case, an average value will be determined. In the event of a significant temperature fluctuation of ±2°C, this will be recorded accordingly.
What time is shown for the analysis?
The tempmate.®-M1 data loggers have an integrated real-time clock (RTC). This is set to GMT±0 before leaving the factory, and is therefore used for the tempmate.®-M1’s PDF analysis.
If the tempmate.®-M1 data loggers are however used with the optional tempbase.®-D software, the software converts the reports to the system time set locally on the computer.
