The most basic definition of a temperature recorder is a device that reads and records the temperature of a specified object over a set period of time. These data recorders are used in a variety of industries, including food service, pharmaceutical, environmental, and logistics. Whatever the industry and application, a temperature recorder is utilized to measure the temperature of a specific object or objects.
Depending on the application, temperature recorders may be used to identify different types of data. Each recording is converted to degrees Celsius or Fahrenheit and stored until the user can read the data. Once a shipment has arrived at the proper facility, the temperature recorder can be removed from the packaging and plugged into a computer so that it can generate a readable document with all of the temperature data from transit. This is usually the primary information that anyone would need to determine if their products were maintained within the required temperature protocols.
There are a few other important things that a temperature recorder can do for the user. For example, some temperature recorders are equipped with an “in range” and “out of range” indicator light, which tells the user whether they are applying the temperature recorder within the appropriate limits for the device. Additionally, some temperature recorders may be used for multiple distributions, meaning they can generate different reports for each shipment.
