The LogTag TRIX-8/TRIX-16 is a versatile, wide-range, multi-trip temperature recorder, capable of reading up to 8,000 recordings with temperature levels ranging from -40°C to 85°C (-40°F to 185°F). The TRIX-8/TRIX-16 features a real-time clock, which provides data and time stamps for each temperature reading, enclosed in a robust and durable polycarbonate case.

When temperature-sensitive products have been exposed to unacceptable packaging conditions, the unit can alert the user if any temperature breach has happened by a visual indicator on the front. Users can retrieve and download data using the LogTag Interface and LogTag Analyser software. These accessories allow the LogTag TRIX-8/16 to be set up quickly for recording conditions, including:

  • Delayed start time
  • Sampling interval
  • Number of readings
  • Continuous or fixed number of readings
  • Defined conditions to activate the ‘alert’ red light indicator

These downloaded data also provide facilities for charting, zooming, listing data statistics, and exporting the data to other applications such as Excel. The LogTag TRIX-8/16 complies with the relevant international standards for temperature monitoring devices such as FCC, CE, C-TICK, TÜV, EN12830, WHO PQS, and RoHS. Use the data logger with ice gel packs and thermal insulator bags for cold chain packaging.
