Tinytag stand-alone loggers and Radio systems offer temperature monitoring for the compost industry.
Stringent regulations such as BSI PAS 100: 2005 require compost processes temperatures to be monitored and recorded accurately, and incorrect temperature can delay or even destroy the process. Analysed data from Tinytag data loggers enables continual monitoring of the composting process, allowing timely adjustments to be made to ensure that the right temperature and therefore optimum productivity levels are maintained. Conventional stand-alone loggers, and radio data logging systems are available, both of which are able to measure the temperature of compost at the surface and the core.
For smaller compost sites where relatively few points need monitoring, stand-alone Tinytag data loggers are a cost-effective solution. Loggers are available with a custom-designed probe if required. The battery powered loggers in this range are very robust and reliable; they are able to store vast amounts of information automatically and using Tinytag Explorer software the data is converted into graphs and tables of readings that can be archived or easily exported to other applications.
- Cost-effective solution for smaller sites
- Accurate recording of the compost process for validation
- Robust, reliable and compact devices
For larger compost sites where manually collecting data from multiple loggers is labour intensive, and when it may be preferable to view live rather than historical data, integrated radio logging systems are the solution. 'Real time’ information from multiple points across a site is sent direct to the Tinytag Explorer data logging software, allowing corrective action to be taken if the temperature is out of the desired range. The Tinytag self-configuring ‘mesh’ network enables loggers up to 200 metres apart to communicate with each other as well as a central receiver, ensuring no loss of data if direct contact with the receiver is blocked. The system enables live data to be reviewed from the comfort of the user’s own desk: data collated by the base station can be presented in various convenient formats, including directly as raw data in csv files or using the Modbus protocol. Accessing the loggers via the internet or an internal network connection can also be provided, allowing monitoring of multiple sites.
- Straightforward remote monitoring of large or multiple sites (hundreds of points)
- ‘Real time’ temperature monitoring enabling immediate corrective action to be taken
- Flexible and easy to set up
