Thermomètre vs enregistreur

THE professional thermometers are particularly powerful tools when it comes to measuring temperature over high measurement ranges and with great precision (in degrees Celsius or Fahrenheit). But not only, if the taking temperature is in fact the primary use of a thermometer, today there are multifunction thermometers; USB or Bluetooth recording thermometers, for example, allow the  memorization of different data (humidity, ambient temperature, atmospheric pressure, etc.) and their transcription on LCD screen. Measuring devices that delight scientists and other engineers. Our temperature sensor experts return with you to these highly technological measuring instruments that are recording thermometers, and reveal all their secrets to you… 

What is a recording thermometer used for? 💡

The first answer to this question would obviously be "To save…"so, yes. But not only that! Strategically speaking, the recording thermometer - whether we are talking about a barometer, a digital or digital thermometer or even a hygrometer - also meets various major professional objectives in industry, in laboratories or in meteorological stations. Record data and allowing their consultation throughout the world via the Internet means offering a strong capacity for analysis, reflection and decision-making to committees and other project managers. In the same way, certain scientists, meteorologists or factory production managers will be able to plan major interventions, significant investments or security measures, based on the data collected thanks to recording thermometers.

So yes, a recording thermometer is used to record, but not only!

How do these kinds of measuring devices work? 🔎

With recording thermometers you can monitor the temperature economically. In fact, the power supply is by battery. In addition, they remotely record the temperature of devices and buildings, with or without a probe. Each recorder transmits the collected data to a WiFi router, itself connected to the Internet, accessible and viewable from a laptop, smartphone or tablet anywhere in the world.

They can also connect to a PC via USB wire, Bluetooth or Wi-Fi to display data in different forms. Whether through graphs, tables or summaries. The information can then be analyzed by zooming in, saving it as a file. Or by exporting them to other software depending on your needs and the usefulness of the data collected.

The recorders, at programmable intervals, will proceed totemperature recording on different measuring ranges depending on their capabilities. Some software also offers a password-protected calibration adjustment feature. This gives you the opportunity to check the calibration of the recorders and make minor adjustments if necessary.

THE recording thermometers Typically incorporate a red and green LED, the flashing green LED indicates the logger is active/logging and the flashing red LED indicates your custom alarms have been exceeded.

The recording thermometer without display

This recorder without display, if it does not offer you direct visual feedback of the temperatures recorded via an external LCD screen, measure temperature, which is then stored in the microprocessor to be transferred for further analysis later.

The main advantages of this recording thermometer: it is simple and inexpensive!

The recording thermometer with display

This recorder with display integrated uses the latest electronic technologies. These data loggers are housed in waterproof and ergonomic cases specially designed to protect the LCD screen on which the recorded data is visible automatically. It works the same way as its cousin above. The only difference is that you can consult the collected temperatures in real time.

To conclude, the main advantage of this recording thermometer: the immediate analysis of temperature measurements!

Other types of thermometers 🌡

Of course, you will find on the market, different types of thermometers useful in many other areas of activity. Do not hesitate to look at the different types of measuring devices on the Thermomé Mag’:
