Inertia over temperature and humidity monitoring in buildings storing goods is not uncommon, particularly if the customer takes responsibility for their own temperature or humidity sensitive cargo. However, a family of wireless or standalone temperature and humidity data loggers offer enormous benefits for relatively little investment. Such a backup system, proactively set up by the owner of the warehouse or storage unit, will deliver basic but essential quality control benefits and open doors in an extremely competitive and fluid marketplace, where discerning customers look increasingly for high quality warehousing and high standards of service.
Data logging is not the same as a new lighting system or state of the art roof where the benefits are clearly visible. However, being able to offer the customer, a regulator or a quality official a set of neatly presented data on the temperature and humidity of your building is professional and satisfying, as well as obligatory in meeting quality standards or other specialist regulations for some businesses. Knowing your building, having pride in your storage offering and setting up a basic temperature monitoring system is caring for the quality of the stock and adding value to the customer.
The Tinytag brand of data loggers by Gemini Data Loggers Ltd are commented on by customers as being easy to use, stable and reliable, cost effective and built to withstand any accidental rough handling. Conventional standalone temperature and humidity data loggers are a cost efficient way to monitor a few suspected hot or cold spots on a small site. If 20 or more points would benefit from being monitored, then intelligent wireless
The advantages encompass an easy, do-it-yourself set up, avoiding the costly involvement of technical help. Self-configuration becomes possible, due to the mesh network where all radio loggers communicate with each other. The need for manual download is eliminated altogether as the wireless option offers remote and fast access to information at any time via the internal network or Internet. Remote alarm signalling, via e-mail or SMS, can warn the user of problems even if no one is on the site and means that fast, corrective action can be taken.
The wireless data logging system consists of a receiver which is connected to a PC and a number of self contained, battery-powered radio loggers arranged in a mesh formation that is self-healing, so that if a temporary interruption to the radio signal is experienced, such as a fork lift truck obstruction, the real time data hops to another logger within range, or stores it until the obstruction clears. Monitoring warehouse temperature and humidity saves time and money and helps sell a warehouse solution.
