How to Perform Temperature Mapping Studies with a Monitoring System

Although viewLinc is a continuous monitoring system designed for GxP-regulated industries, it can also be used for temperature mapping studies in those same environments. However, you need to know a few procedural steps to perform mapping studies with viewLinc.

One of the main advantages of viewLinc as a continuous monitoring system is that it records data at the point of measurement (in each data logger’s memory) before sending the it to viewLinc’s server. The software repairs any interrupted network connection, so even if the connection is temporarily lost, data is securely stored in the loggers. When viewLinc automatically restores the network connection, data recorded by the loggers is backfilled to the viewLinc database. When using viewLinc for a mapping study, you take advantage of this backfill feature.

In this application note, we provide thirteen steps to mapping with viewLinc, as well as some special considerations on the software’s features and what reports to use for mapping studies and data analysis.

Temperature Buffers

Temperature sensors are often placed into a thermal buffer to ensure that normal fluctuations in temperature-controlled environments do not cause false alarms. 

In this application note, we discuss different types of thermal buffers, the utility of standardizing buffering material, and the option of using time-based buffers (alarm delays) in monitoring software to achieve the same effect – reducing nuisance alarms.
