RC5+ Temperature Data Logger User Manual


Can data be exported to Excel?

Yes, PDF report can be downloaded directly once the USB is plug into a computer. The Excel report can be downloaded via the free software.

Can RC-5+ be calibrated?

Yes, it has a calibration function in the software.

Does the RC-5+ have a calibration certificate included?

Yes, the certificate is included in the package.

Is a battery included?

Yes, it comes with a CR2450 lithium battery.

How long does the battery last while logging information and how many days on continue logging can it record?

The battery is replaceable and the life depends on the log interval and working environment. The log interval is adjustable from 10s-24 hours and the max capacity points are 32000.

What time period can you set the report to cover? I am trying to monitor the freezer settings over a 3 month period?

The logger can record 32000 data points. By determining the time between each reading you can figure out how many readings per day. With this amount you can figure out how many data points in 90 days. Example: If you take a reading every 5 minutes that means 12 per hour which is 288 a day. 90 times 288 gives you 25,920 data points for 90 days.

How do you change the date? The day is off by one day.

Change the timezone via the software.

Is the software compatible with Mac?

Yes, we have both Window and Mac versions.

How I can change to the logger to Celcius?

Download the Elitechlog software, use the menu option ‘parameters’ to adjust the unit of measurement.

My computer USB is not recognizing the device anymore. The screen is flashing “pdf.”

If the screen flashes “PDF“, it means that the logger is uploading the data to the computer. Just wait a few minutes and then you will see a new disk icon on your computer screen. If it still does not work, plug the logger into another USB port in your computer.
