Hibernating Your LogTag

When you are not using your LogTag, it’s a great idea to place it into hibernation.

Hibernation is basically just switching the LogTag off. This will save the battery life. Otherwise, the LogTag will keep taking readings and saving them to memory.

LogTag-Hibernate
Choose Hibernate from the LogTag menu

To begin, place the LogTag in the Reader (or insert it into a USB port if it is a USB model).

Download the readings normally.

Note: All readings will be lost when the LogTag is placed into hibernation.

Go to the LogTag menu and choose Hibernate.

LogTag-Hibernate

A warning screen will appear reminding you that all stored readings will be erased.

Hit the Continue button to proceed.

You LogTag will be hibernated and you will see a tick next to it in the LogTag list.

Waking up a hibernated LogTag

When hibernating, the LogTag will not respond to pushing the Start button.

To wake it up, place it back in the Reader. Choose Configure from the LogTag menu or press the blue LogTag icon.

The configuration screen will appear as normal.

Hit Next and the configuration will be copied to the LogTag.

You will be returned to the LogTag list page and get a confirmation message saying “The LogTag(s) below are now ready to start/be started”

Remove the LogTag from the Reader and start it by pressing and holding the Start button for 1 second. The Red and Green alert lights will flash to show you that the LogTag has started.
