Kinnerton Confectionary in Fakenham, Norfolk (UK), with production lines producing millions of Easter eggs, chocolate lollipops, truffles, and chocolate cartoon characters for its own label and other household brands. Critical to all their chocolate products was the cooling process operating in the ‘cooling tunnel’, inside of which a delicate balance was maintained between the temperature, relative humidity (RH) and the airflow. To give their chocolate the right gloss and a maximum shelf life, CAS DataLogger had to determine the monitoring system that would ensure the cooling profile for each product was maintained. This often proved difficult when technicians had to account for the ambient outside temperature and relative humidity, both of which could change several times during the day from April to the end of September as the local weather fluctuated violently. An effective data logging solution was needed to address these vital concerns. Continue Reading…
Temperature Data Loggers
CAS DataLoggers introduced a flexible data monitoring system to a rice miller and food processing company that had recently installed a new production line. This line produced various cooked rice products in reheatable and microwaveable polymer sachets. Consequently the data logging system was utilized to monitor the retort cooking and sterilization temperatures as well as the accumulated Fo value (expressing the heating time required for disinfection) during production of its various pouched rice products. The added capability to download the results was also necessary both for analysis and quality purposes. Internal calculation and real-time data collection were crucial customer needs. To learn more …
CAS DataLoggers and Lascar Electronics have partnered to announce the release of the new EL-USB-1-LCD Temperature Data Logger with LCD. This standalone data logger measures and stores up to 16,378 temperature readings over a -35 to +80°C (-31 to +176°F) measurement range. Continue Reading…
The Delphin 64KTM was developed to provide a multi-channel solution for temperature measurement using thermocouples. It provides 64 differential inputs with 110V isolation and galvanic separation prevent measurement errors from ground loops and a 24 bit sigma-delta A/D converter. The Cold Junction reference temperature is measured using a class A, 4-wire RTD enabling an absolute accuracy of 0.2°. Other features include:
- Industrial grade 19″ rack enclosure
- Support for E,J,K,L,N,S,R,T,U thermocouples
- 24 Bit measurement resolution
- 1 GB Internal memory
- Ethernet, Modbus, Profibus interfaces
- Up to 1 GB of local memory
- Expandable to >1000 channels
Typical users are R&D groups and laboratories who need to acquire highly precise temperature measurements. Traditional areas of use are test stations for gas turbines or boilers but the system is also suitable for temperature measurement in ovens, furnaces, heating chambers, temperature controlled enclosures and manufacturing or processing equipment.
The 64KTM is equipped with internal memory for up to 128 million data records. The memory’s independent data recording capability provides data security for long-term measurement runs. Individual channels can be set up with limit values enabling monitoring and alarm functions and calculations including moving averages. The basis version if the 64KTM is set up for 64 channel operation and the modular design enables several units to be connected so that several thousand channels can be processed.

We offer a selection of turn-key temperature recorders that are supplied the with sensors either built into the logger or with an external temperature probe. They provide a complete solution to your temperature data logging needs. There are models with built in USB or Ethernet interfaces. We also offer wireless data loggers that can be used with several versions of base stations to monitor and retrieve the data without having to make a physical connection to the data logger. Several models also provide limit checking with alarms and notification of out of range temperatures.
These device offer a very cost effective solution to basic temperature recording needs. Typically, the operate over a more limited temperature range than Thermocouple or RTD data loggers and provide lower accuracy. However, they are ideal for simple temperature monitoring in refrigerators, freezers, warehouses, and storage areas. Click the following link to go the Temperature Recorder Product Page.
