Omega Introduces OM-CP-CRYO-TEMP Ultra-Low Temperature Data Logger
The OM-CP-CRYO-TEMP ultra-low temperature data logger from Omega reportedly records temperatures as low as -86°C (-122°F). The OM-CP-CRYO-TEMP can be used in a broad line of applications including monitoring blood plasma, vaccines, pharmaceuticals and frozen foods. The stand-alone device does not require any additional probes. The enclosure is designed with a handle for easy attachment and is IP65 splash resistant.
It utilizes a USB docking station to communicate with a personal computer or laptop. The OM-CP-CRYO-TEMP provides date and time stamped temperature readings. The user can view the data in graphical or tabular form. High and low alarm limits and high and low warning limits can be programmed; the user sets the alarm limits. Warning limits alert the user when the temperature is nearing a high or low alarm limit, so that proper action can be taken to ensure product integrity.
The OM-CP-CRYO-TEMP is equipped with three LEDs. The green LED blinks every 15 seconds while the recorder is logging data. The yellow LED blinks every three seconds when the temperature has breached the warning limits. The red LED blinks every three seconds when the temperature alarm limits have been exceeded.
