Data Trace Data Loggers by Mesalabs


A data logger is an electronic device used to record data over time in a particular position or placement. Data loggers are designed to measure a wide variety of conditions and processes and selecting a proper data logger for a particular process can become somewhat challenging. As data loggers have evolved over time, their design has become much more specialized and their construction much more robust and customized. Programmable data loggers can be used to gain a lot of information about a process. The user dictates the intervals in which a reading is logged and, as is the case with DataTrace, can even dictate how and when the logger communicates it data to the server/software. DataTrace data loggers can be extremely useful for identifying cold spots, establishing sterility assurance or validating new equipment or processes.

Temperature Data Loggers

Micropack III Temperature Data Logger                              

Wireless Temperature Monitoring

Adaptable to almost any situation, MPIII Temperature Loggers measure less than an inch (without probe or Thermal Pack). Their small size increases versatility and precision by allowing you to position loggers very near or inside monitored items. From chilling, freezing and room temperature to pasteurization, EtO sterilization and depyrogenation, MPIII Temp, HiTemp and HiTemp EXT loggers provide accurate data over a wide range with remarkable ease.

  • Wireless Temperature Data Loggers1
  • Field calibration/battery change
  • 16,000 NIST-traceable data points
  • FDA 21 CFR Part 11 Compliant
  • Intrinsically Safe
  • Wide range of internal monitoring accessories


Internal Temperature Monitoring for Sealed Containers

The Thermowell allows for addition/removal of the logger without breaking the seal! This logger is great for monitoring temperatures in a sealed container such as a can or bottle where it is critical that the seal not be broken during testing. The Thermowell can be welded directly into piping allowing the logger to be easily removed and replaced when desired without shutting down a process.Thermowell is a perfect fit for an SIP or CIP system at the typical monitor points. Made from the same durable materials you’ve come to expect from DataTrace, this MPIII logger is no different and has threads at the base of the probe to allow it to be easily attached and detached from the Thermowell at any time without breaking the seal!1

  • Ideal for Retort and Cooking Applications
  • Compatible with Vacuum Processes
  • Steam-In-Place (SIP)
  • Cleaning-In-Place (CIP)


MPRF Temperature Data Logger

Real-time Temperature Monitoring

To control product quality, you have to control the process. The best way to control the process is by monitoring real-time process data. DataTrace® MPRF Temperature data loggers deliver the data from chilling, freezing and room temperature to pasteurization, EO sterilization and depyrogenation. MPRF Temperature data loggers provide accurate data over a wide range with remarkable ease; from as low as -80ºC to +400ºC. This makes it easy to monitor processes across a wide spectrum of temperatures in a variety of different industries and products.1

  • Real-Time product/process monitoring
  • Ability to monitor 8,000 Data Points
  • FDA 21 CFR Part 11 Compliant
  • Accuracy over a wide temperature range




Pressure Data Loggers

Micropack III Pressure Data Loggers   

Wireless Pressure Monitoring

Controlling a manufacturing process requires accurate monitoring. And for that, your sensor must be close to the product being monitored, especially in food processing where one container is inside another. The ultra-small DataTrace® Micropack III (MPIII) Pressure Data Logger has a body measuring just 1.9 inches long. MPIII Pressure Data Loggers fit inside containers to get pressure readings from 0 PSIA (0 BAR) to 72.5 PSIA (5 BAR) with exceptional accuracy at temperatures up to 140°C (284°F). With their wide range and high precision, MPIII Pressure Data Loggers are not only well suited to canning and pouch processes, but an array of applications where pressure affects products and quality.1

  • Wireless Pressure Data Logger
  • Compact (1.9″ x 0.7″) Body
  • 16,000 NIST-traceable Data Points
  • FDA 21 CFR Part 11 Compliant
  • Intrinsically Safe


Humidity Data Loggers

Micropack III Humidity Data Logger

Wireless Humidity Monitoring

For processes that are sensitive to humidity, even small relative humidity (RH) changes can dramatically affect product production, storage and shipping – impacting everything from production time to product quality to cost. To achieve optimal conditions, you need precise humidity data. With the DataTrace® Micropack III (MPIII) Humidity Data Logger, you get it. The highly accurate MPIII Relative Humidity Data Logger monitors RH across the full range, from 0% to 100% at temperatures from 0°C (32°F) to 85°C (185°F).1

  • Wireless Relative Humidity Data Loggers
  • Accurate Across Full PH Range
  • 16,000 NIST-Traceable Data Points
  • FDA21 CFR Part 11 Compliant
  • Intrinsically Safe
