Equalization Time

Is the duration that the sensor needs to adapt to the prevailing value. The inertia of the sensors plays a role here.


Degree Celsius is a unit of measurement for temperature named after Anders Celsius. The freezing or boiling point of water is used as a reference - rounded from 0 ° C and 100 ° C


A data logger is a mostly electronic device with one or more sensors for recording and storing mostly physical measured variables.


Fahrenheit is a unit of measure for temperature. named after the German physicist Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit.


Good Distribution Practice. It describes the recommended good distribution practice for human medicinal products to ensure quality and product safety


Good Manufacturing Practice. It describes the recommended manufacturing practice for human pharmaceuticals to ensure quality and product safety


IATA Dagerous Goods Regulations. The regulations describe the procedures for the transport and declaration of dangerous goods


An indicator shows the simple change in a state. It is the easiest way to visually indicate a change in condition, e.g. in the form of an exceedet temperature


Calibration is the comparison of measuring or test equipment with a reference. Sensors are sometimes subject to a drift which results in a deviation outside of the tolerance. This is checked by means of calibration.


Degree Kelvin is a unit of temperature named after Lord Kelvin. It starts at zero K. Absolute zero cannot assume any negative values.


The humidity indicates the percentage of water vapor in the air. Relative humidity is usually used for data loggers, as cold air can bind less water vapor than warm air before the water condenses


Mean Kinetic Temperature describes the overall effect of temperature fluctuations during the storage or transport of perishable goods.


Monitoring describes the systematic monitoring of values ​​in order to identify deviations at an early stage and initiate countermeasures.


QM is used as an abbreviation for "quality management". It describes functions and strategic measures to optimize processes and ensure maximum product and service quality


Quality assurance (QA) takes all measures and precautions to ensure maximum product quality and is part of the quality management system


A sensor is an electronic component used to record physical measured variables. The sensor is part of data loggers, for example. Its quality contributes significantly to the accuracy of the measurement data.

Supply Chain

The supply chain describes the course of a product from the extraction of the raw materials to the delivery of the finished product to the end consumer

Dew Point

The dew point is the temperature which must be fallen below at a certain humidity and constant pressure before water vapor can settle as condensate (dew / fog).


Temperature describes a state variable to describe physical states. It is usually given in the sizes ° C (degrees Celcius) or ° F (degrees Fahrenheit).

Temperature Datalogger

A temperature data logger records and saves temperature values ​​in a defined time interval. These can usually be read out and analyzed digitally. In the past, the measurement data were written on paper.


Describes a procedure for checking whether set goals or requirements are being met. For temperature data loggers, for example, whether the required accuracy corresponds to the given accuracy.
