LogTag® TRIX-8 Temperature Recorder

LogTag® TRIX-8 is the same size as your credit card and still thin enough to be mailed 'letter rate' in the post. This means not too small to be too hard to find and fits into most packaging easily,
LogTag® TRIX-8 is equipped with a unique external temperature sensor arrangement providing fast reaction time to temperature change.

LogTag's Alert indicator provides warning if the monitored temperature has moved out of set limits. Comprehensive options allow customisation of alert settings to suit a particular application thereby minimising chance of a false alert. This insures the status of the shipment is directly linked to the alert indication.


Using the LogTag® Interface and the freely available companion software LogTag® Analyzer , the LogTag is easily set-up for recording conditions including delayed start, sampling interval, number of readings, continuous or fixed number of readings and configuration of conditions to activate the ALERT indicator.
Readings are downloaded using LogTag Analyzer which provides facilities for charting, zooming, listing data statistics and allows exporting the data to other applications such as Excel.

Alert indicator – indicates if readings are outside of preset limits
OK indicator indicates if still recording and if readings within configured limits
Inspection mark in log by push button
Push Button Logging start with optional delayed start or specific Time & Date start
Rapid Download! Takes only seconds to download recordings
‘Pre-Start’ logging - LogTag® can be configured to record even if it has not been started.
High performance at low cost
Credit card sized case – thin enough to be easily mailed “letter rate”.
Real time clock records time & temperature simultaneously
Easy to use LogTag Analyzer software that runs on any PC configures LogTag® for recording then downloads resulting data for analysis. Data can also be exported to fomats compatible with other applications such as Excel
Re-calibration to achieve higher accuracy possible
