Currently the MM7000 uses barcodes to identify a location or product which enables the thermometer to record not only the accurate temperature, time and date of the measurement but also the unique identity of whatever has been measured. Up to 1,000 measurements can be recorded, stored and downloaded to a PDA or computer, using the instrument’s Bluetooth capability.
The radical change which has been introduced is a feature which assigns alarm values to a barcode. The MM7000 uses these to give a visual warning of a Low or High alarm for a specific barcode. Once programmed every time the MM7000 scans the barcode an alarm indication will be shown on the display.
The new alarms can be user-set to reflect whichever critical temperature range the customer chooses. Each barcode includes a unique alpha/numeric code which represents the pre-set temperature range including the high and low alarm values. If these alarm values are exceeded the user will be alerted and can take corrective action.
Useful in all industries
The new user-set alarm functionality is useful in a wide variety of engineering and processing applications, wherever temperature must be monitored, including manufacturing, food processing, distribution and storage as well as legionella control and risk prevention.
TM Electronics MD, Tom Sensier, says: “TME’s new-look MM7000 Bluetooth logging thermometer with user-set alarms is a low-cost, convenient way for anyone working in process, engineering control management to streamline temperature checks.”
