TEMPERATURE LOGGER
with built-in OHM tester and DataTrack software.

The DTL is a portable instrument that measures, stores, and prints out grain
temperatures. Each printout displays the company name, time, bin number,
cable number, TC number, and 4 sets of temperature readings with the
reading dates. The optional DTL DataTrack software running in Microsoft
Windows reads, stores, and analyzes data from the DTL.

The DTL is a portable unit that will measure, store and print out grain temperatures. Each printout will
display the bin number, cable number, TC number, and the last 4 temperature scans along with your
company name and the date and time. The printer output is through a standard parallel interface to full-
size paper and does not require a computer. The DTL DataTrack software runs in Microsoft Windows
and reads, stores and analyzes the reading from the DTL.
