Control Company Launches Dataloggers To Monitor Humidity

Devices feature digital data downloads

Webster, TX /PRNewswire/ - Control Company announced today the launch of two innovative data logging devices, Excursion-Trac™ and Memory-Loc™, that monitor humidity and temperature, critical for environments where there is a necessity to prevent and control corrosion, condensation, mold, warping, or other damage of materials. Humidity affects the properties of air and all materials that come into direct contact with air. Water vapor, a notable greenhouse gas, is highly significant regarding weather and climate. Measurement is especially important for products like foods, pharmaceuticals and chemicals.

Materials stored are vulnerable to damage from their specific environments. Environments such as data center operations or telecommunications are required to keep moisture levels stable and within appropriate ranges. Similarly, healthcare storage, equipment and processes can be negatively affected and result in damages should moisture levels fall or rise outside of the recommended range.

"Any facility—medical, agriculture or telecommunications‑ needs to protect equipment, materials and the like from environmental variations in temperature and humidity—without fail," stated Mike Blazes, CEO of Control Company. "There is no room for error. Our data logging products provide that level of insurance that any and all equipment or materials are preserved in the right temperature conditions for optimal use and safety."

Industry regulations call for storage areas to maintain 30 percent and 60 percent relative humidity. If moisture levels rise or fall outside of this range, sterility of any equipment stored can be compromised and not suited for patient usage. Traceable® Excursion-Trac™ Datalogger Hygrometer, monitors the environment's humidity levels, providing recorded data in a CSV format that can easily be transferred from the thermometer to any computer with use of a USB flash drive.

Both products feature data logging and monitoring capabilities with csv downloadable data. These devices fulfill CLIA requirements (https://www.cdc.gov/CLIA/Regulatory/default.aspx).

"Monitoring the temperature and humidity of a storage environment is a basic element in the overall preservation of materials. As with all of our products, our goal is to help professionals needing to monitor any environmental changes such as temperature or humidity," said Blazes. "The features we integrate into our data logging products provide that necessary added layer of insurance."
