Here's a little more in depth look into the Bosch Data Logger # TDL110 (Digi-Key part # 1723-1001-ND).
Let's tackle this question first: Why would I want a data logger? If your shipment needs to be cared for in specific ways (let's say a handful of laptops that shouldn't be dropped or maybe a shipment of food that needs to remain frozen and not allowed to thaw) then this data log device is an excellent way to maintain transparency and security within the supply chain channel. The long life time of the battery and the robust IP54 case packaging means this can be used time and time again.
Length of black base: 4 1/16" (metric: 10.2cm)
Width of black base 3 11/16" (metric: 9.37 cm)
Height: approx. 1 1/8" (metric: 2.86 cm)
Holes in the black plastic appear to accommodate a #10 or M5 screw size.
Label on the underside of the logger will contain part number and ID number as well as certifications for this device.
Utilizing the App:
You will need to download the Bosch Data Logger app for your mobile device:
For tutorials on how to utilize the data logger and app, I recommend reviewing the web videos (these are also available on the Digi-Key page for this module):
While testing out this device, I set parameters to state that anything higher than a 21 degree C temperature is a violation. I set the datalogger next to my cubicle heater to see if this would spike a violation. Measurements are taken every ten minutes and the measurements are recorded into an excel worksheet that can be emailed to the address of your choosing:
