Timestrip is used for monitoring temperatures of products during distribution, whilst the Berlinger Fridge Tag 2 (USB) and the Fridge Tag (standard) are used for monitoring temperatures in vaccine fridges. The Berlinger Freeze Tag can be used both for distribution and stationery applications.
Timestrip products are also single-use, whilst the Fridge Tag (standard), the Fridge Tag 2 (USB) and the Freeze Tag are used on a continuous basis over their operating life of 3 years, 2 years or 5 years.
The recordings can be read in two ways:
The word LOC will be displayed on the screen during read-out either upon plugging into a PC or Mac via USB or when you are doing a manual read-out. During read-out the Fridge Tag will stop recording temperatures, so that no false readings occur.
If you are doing a manual read-out and have not pressed the READ button for the past 30 seconds, the word ‘LOC’ will be displayed indicating that in the next 10 minutes the Fridge Tag 2 (USB) will start recordings again. If you have finished with the read-out you may return your Fridge Tag 2 (USB) to the fridge. If you are still busy with the read-out, simply press the READ button again and continue with your read-out.
Because the Freeze Tag is active, it should be stored at temperatures above 4°C.
