Our team at Global Sensors offers a wide range of temperature and humidity sensors, monitors, and loggers to help you ensure that your products arrive at their destination in good condition. Two of the products we offer are the LogTag 2-Channel Utred30-16 and Utrel30-16 dual-channel 30-day display loggers. In this article, we’ll go over the capabilities of these temperature monitors to help you decide if they are right for you.
First, we’ll cover the specifications that both models have in common:
- Both the Utred and Utrel temperature monitors can take and store up to 32,000 temperature readings.
- They both allow you to reset the minimum and maximum temperature readings at any time.
- Each model has an audible alarm and LED visual signals to alert you to temperature spikes.
- Both allow you to view the alarm status for the past 30 days at a glance.
- They both have six configurable alarms for each channel.
- Finally, both allow you to configure their sampling interval—you can choose one as short as 30 seconds or as long as 18 hours.
Next, we’ll focus on their differences:
- The main difference between these two temperature monitors is the range of temperatures each was designed for. The Utred30-16 has a range of -40 to 99 C (-40 to 210 F), while the Utrel30-16 has a range of -90 to 40 C (-130 to 104 F).
- Each model also has slight differences in accuracy across its temperature range. The Utred is most accurate– within 0.5 C (0.9 F) between temperatures of -20 to 40 C (-4 to 104 F). The Utrel, on the other hand, is most accurate (also within 0.5 C or 0.9 F) between temperatures of -20 and 10 C (-4 and 50 F).
