You need to configure the Logtag Temperature Logger before using it. This will tell it how often you want it to record the temperature and what the alarm limits are.

You need to do this when you first receive the logger. Before you run the software, plug the Logtag cradle into the USB port of your computer.

Run the Logtag Analyser software. You will see the following screen appear:

Plug the Logtag into the cradle.

If the Logtag Wizard does not automatically start then press the Logtag Wizard button just below the “File” menu.

You will see this screen appear:

– Wait for you to press the “Start/Mark” button to begin Logging.

Place the Logger in the fridge (or where ever you want to log) and press the “Start/Mark” button.
