Vaisala introduces the newest addition to its line of data loggers for environmental monitoring, the Mid-Range (MR) logger.

As reliable as the Vaisala DL-series loggers used in GxP-regulated environments, the MR data loggers are designed for applications where speed and economy are critical, and regulatory scrutiny is less stringent.

Combined with the Vaisala viewLinc monitoring system (VvMS) the MR loggers allow users to create presentation quality reports that are automatically exported to PDF and spreadsheets.

Senior product manager Jon Aldous said: "We created this logger to provide an economical option for customers seeking the quality and reliability of a Vaisala device and the ease of use of the viewLinc software, but with simplified calibration and validation processes.

"These data loggers still have best features of our other loggers, continuous recording, dependable alarming, and easy reporting, but with accuracy appropriate to most industrial settings, rather than a very demanding environment, for example, a chamber that must be calibrated to ICH standards.

"Not all environments have the same regulatory focus. Now we can offer a flexible solution that includes the same great hardware and software, but with precision that matches the application."

Applications for the MR data logger range from drug discovery and early phase clinical trials, blood and tissue banks, hospitals and pharmacies, to semi-conductors and server rooms.

With a calibrated measurement range of -55 to 50°C, MR loggers are available in six models, including single channel temperature, two-channel temperature and contact input, four-channel with temperature and contacts, or two-channel temperature and humidity.

Designed to be easily deployable out of the box, MR data loggers have two options for scaled-down, efficient validation, which are the Express IQOQ and Rapid IQOQ.
