Smart thermometer for logging and capturing temperature data
Lascar Electronics’ EL-EnviroPad-TC is a handheld smart thermometer designed to take and records temperature readings via its attached thermocouple probe. Its three modes—data logging, spot measurement, and checklist—makes it useful for immediate, short- and long-term temperature monitoring. Its large full color touchscreen display and clear menu-based instructions for use in each mode make the EL-EnviroPad-TC easy to navigate. Supplied with a handheld 316 stainless steel K-Type probe, the unit has an integrated mini thermocouple connector in its base.
In its data logging mode, the EL-EnviroPad-TC can take temperature readings at predetermined intervals. All data logging parameters are set using the EL-EnviroPad’s touchscreen interface, with settings such like sample rate and high and low alarms. Once collected, data can be viewed on-screen as a graph or downloaded to a PC for further analysis.
In spot measurement mode, the EL-EnviroPad-TC can be used as a thermometer to manually capture temperature readings displayed on screen. Over 65,000 spot measurements can be recorded in each file.
The checklist function allows users to create a customized list of measurement items using free PC software. Features include minimum and maximum temperatures, pass/fail criteria, and the attachment of comments to individual readings on the EL-EnviroPad-TC. All tabular data can be downloaded and displayed in the software and exported in .pdf or .csv format.
