ThermoREC

What is ThermoREC?

This application enables the monitoring and graph display of temperature data recorded by the registered loggers.
The data displayed in Graph View is automatically uploaded to T&D WebStorage Service.
Compatible OS: Android 4.4 or later, iOS 10.0 or later

 Note

To upload data, it is necessary to have a T&D WebStorage Service User ID and make necessary settings in advance.
See [How to Use the T&D WebStorage Service]-[Initial Settings]

Registration Code Entry

When using the ThermoREC App for the first time, register devices by entering the registration code to enable communication via Bluetooth®.

Help - [TR4 FAQs] > Where can I find the registration code and serial number?

Initial Screen
  1. Upon startup, the app scans for available loggers in range and displays them in a list with the model and serial number.

  2. Select a device to open the registration code entry screen.
    In order to add the devices that do not appear in the list, tap [Add Manually] to open the serial number and registration code entry screen.

  3. Enter the required information (registration code/serial number) you can find on the supplied label, and tap [Apply] button.

  4. After registering the necessary devices, tap [ < Back] to go to the Top screen.

 IMPORTANT

If you change your smartphone/tablet, it is necessary to perform device registration again.

Adjustment

Allows you to make adjustments to measurements. (For details see: [Adjustment Examples])
1 Point Adjustment: Use this to adjust all measurements with the same offset.
2 Point Adjustment: Use this to adjust measurements in a wide range or when adjustment cannot be carried out using only one point.

Device Lock
When Device Lock is set to ON, the registration code is required at the time of communication in order to prevent the connection from unintended devices.

Time Period About 4 hours About 5 days About 11 days About 111 days About 1 year and 10 months

Adjustment Examples

After adjustment settings have been made to a logger, it will display and record only the post-adjusted readings.

1 Point Adjustment

This adjustment method changes only the intercept (b) where the slope (a) is considered to be the value of "one". For example, the Remote Unit is measuring 10.2°C, but the standard says the actual measurement should be 10°C. Enter 10.2 in the "Current Reading" box and 10 in the "Post-adjusted Reading" box. The conversion equation will be Y=X−0.2 and for all measurements an adjustment to the offset of −0.2 will be made.

2 Point Adjustment

The adjustment equation will be calculated from two points: the slope (a) and the intercept (b). For example, the Remote Unit is measuring 0.2°C and 9.6°C, but the standard says the actual measurements should be 0°C and 10°C. Enter 0.2 and 9.6 in the "Current Reading" boxes and 0 and 10 in the "Post-adjusted Reading" boxes. In this case the slope (a) is (10−0)/(9.6−0.2) = 1.06. The conversion equation is Y=1.06X−0.213 with the intercept being −0.213.

 IMPORTANT

When you are carrying out adjustment settings and formulating equations please take care with the settings and take personal responsibility for the process.

  • Making adjustment settings will not guarantee the improvement of measurement accuracy for the whole measurement range.
  • If you replace a sensor that was connected when making adjustment settings, it is necessary to re-make any desired settings to be written into the newly connected sensor.
  • By making new adjustment settings to an already adjusted device without first clicking the Initialize button, the new adjustment equation will be used to further adjust the previously adjusted result. Please be careful that in this case, the difference between the actual measurement (original value) and the post-adjusted value will be bigger than it should be.
    EX: When changing 0 to 0.1 (+0.1) in the first adjustment and 0 to 0.2 (+0.2) in the second adjustment, the difference will be 0.3 (0.1+0.2).
  • For 2 point Adjustment, it is important to make sure the points are not too close to each other. The probability of measurement errors will increase in other ranges outside of the two points. It is recommended to make the space between the two points 20% or more of the measurement range for the Remote Unit.
  • When carrying out adjustment to the slope, adjustments will become larger in areas outside of the 2 points which were entered.
