Can I change the battery of the tempmate.®-S1?
No! The tempmate.®-S1 is a single-use data logger. Once stopped you cannot reuse the logger.
Do I need the software to use the tempmate.®-S1?
No! You just need the software if you want to reprogram the logger (and only if the logger have not been started yet)
Why does the report show in the temperature field the keyword “USB”?
This happens if you have started the logger and then plugged the logger into a computer. The report will show the keyword “USB” as long as it is plugged in the computer.
What is the difference between the tempmate.®-S1 and tempmate.®-M1?
The tempmate.®-S1 is a single-use datalogger whereas the tempmate.®-M1 is a multiuse datalogger. That means once the tempmate.®-S1 is stopped you cannot restart the logger. But with the Mark function, you can set a mark point and use the tempmate.®-S1 for multiple means of transport.
What is the difference between the tempmate.®-S1 and tempmate.®-i1?
The tempmate.®-S1 is a datalogger whereas the tempmate.®-i1 is an indicator. That means that the tempmate.-S1 do store the data for further analysis and to create the PDF or CSV Report.
What time is shown for the analysis?
The tempmate.®-S1 data loggers have an integrated real-time clock (RTC). This is set to GMT±0 before leaving the factory, and is therefore used for the tempmate.®-S1’s PDF analysis. The starting time is therefore documented with to-the-second accuracy, and the stop time always corresponds to the last measurement interval when it was stopped.
Will the temperature also be monitored between the measurement intervals?
The temperature will also be recorded between the measurement intervals, and in each case, an average value will be determined. In the event of significant temperature fluctuation of ±2°C, this will be recorded accordingly.
Is the PDF report protected against manipulation?
Just as is the case with other electronic documents, it is possible to manipulate PDF files. However, even after the data has been analysed, the original data remains stored on the tempmate.®-S1 logger, so that it can always be downloaded again and compared to the questionable PDF report. Therefore, it is important that the loggers are saved until any such queries have been completely clarified.
Why can’t I open the PDF report?
You need Adobe Acrobat, version 9.0 or above, to be able to open the PDF. The latest respective version can be downloaded here: www.get.adobe.com/reader
What does the analysis look like in the PDF report?
The temperature profile is presented as a graphic, and all individual measurement values are shown in table form. What’s more, additional statistical information (for example serial number) is also included.
Is it possible to analyse tempmate.®-S1 loggers with software and to export the data?
The tempmate.®-S1 is optionally compatible with the tempbase.®-D software. This software can manage all the measurement data and export it as a PDF or CSV file. The tempbase.®-D software is available as a free download, either here or in the software download box.
Are the tempmate.®-S1 loggers validated?
Yes, and with each delivery, you receive a validation certificate free of charge.
What is the loggers’ service life/storage life?
From leaving the factory, each logger with an ideal storage conditions (+15°C to +23°C / 45% to 75% rF) has a life of at least 1 year, maximum 24 months. The respective best before date is printed on the reverse of the logger and should always be kept in consideration.
How accurate is the built-in real-time clock (RTC)?
The real-time clock runs from when it was produced. Due to technical factors, there may be a deviation of ±2 minutes after 5 months/±4 minutes after 10 months.
Are tempmate.®-S1 loggers IATA compatible, meaning they can be used in aeroplanes?
Yes, to the latest IATA Guidelines, our tempmate.®-S1 Single-Use data loggers do not need to be declared.
