Viewing Details about Logger Configurations
Each logger configuration has its own page with details, including statistics, settings, graphs, and more. To view these additional details:
- Click Data and then Logger Configurations.
- Scroll through the table or enter search criteria to find a specific configuration.
- Click the link in the Logger Label column to view the configuration details page.
The Configuration Info section includes:
- Logger model type.
- User who configured it.
- Logger serial number.
- The passkey automatically assigned to the logger. Only administrators or those with the required privileges can view this information.
- The name or label entered for the logger.
- Trip information. Click Edit if you need to change the information entered in the trip information fields or click Add to enter information and then click Save. You can also import trip information from a spreadsheet if you need to fill in fields for numerous configurations. See Importing Trip Information for details. See also Setting up Trip Information Fields if you need to set up new fields.
- The date and time when the logger was configured, started, downloaded, and stopped (as applicable). Note: The start and stop date and time can change when segmentation is enabled (see more details in the Segmentation section below).
- A link to export the device report that was created when the logger was downloaded. This is the same report that is available in the InTemp app (see Working with InTemp App Reports), unless segmentation has been set up and enabled (see more details in the Segmentation section below). Click Export and then choose the time zone and file format for the report and whether you want to include alarm information or logged data. You can also create your own custom report if you need to further refine the content of this device report (see Building a Logger Report). Note that when you click Export, you can run a PDF, Excel, or VFC (CSV) report (the VFC option is only available when clicking Export). To return to the detailed configuration page, click Data and then Logger Configurations, find the configuration in the table, and click the link in the Logger Label column.
- A link to download the NIST certificate associated with the logger (if available).
The Configuration Statistics section shows the average, standard deviation, minimum, maximum, and mean kinetic temperature. It also shows the total logged data points for the configuration. This data is only available after the logger has been downloaded. Note: The statistics can change when segmentation is enabled (see more details in the Segmentation section below).
The General Settings section shows the logging interval and start logging settings used for the configuration.
The Alarm Settings section shows the high alarm, low alarm, MKT, and trip length alarm settings, including how many samples are required to trip the alarm (if applicable). This section is only available if alarms were set up.
The Graph section shows a plot of the logged data, including shading to indicate the alarm limits (red for high limits and blue for low limits). Hover over the plot line to see individual data point values with the date and time they were logged. You can also zoom in and out using the zoom control bar at the bottom of the graph. To return to the default view, click the Refresh Graph button. Note: When segmentation is enabled, gray shading and notes may appear on the graph (see more details in the Segmentation section below). The Refresh Graph button will return to the default view of the segmented graph.
Use segmentation for CX500, CX600, or CX700 series loggers if you need to isolate a portion of the data for the download in the graph and the exported report. For example, if a logger started logging before a shipment was sent and continued to run after the shipment was received, you can use segmentation to include the data only within the time frame when the shipment was actually in transit. This segmented time frame is then used in the detailed configuation page for that logger as well as in the Configurations table, searches, and reports. An annotation feature is also available to mark one or more points in the download for CX400, CX450, CX500, CX600, or CX700 loggers as needed (for example to add notes to a shipment). Note: Only administrators and users with required privileges can set up segmentation.
Important: If an alarm event for a CX500, CX600, or CX700 logger occurs outside the segmented time frame, and then the alarm either clears within the segmented time frame or never clears, then the details of that event will be available in the Configurations table, searches, and reports. However, if an alarm event for a CX500, CX600, or CX700 logger both trips and clears outside the segmented time frame, then the alarm event will not be available in the Configurations table, searches, and reports. In addition, if an alarm event for a CX500, CX600, or CX700 had tripped within the segmented time frame and then cleared outside that time frame, the alarm cleared event will not be in the Configurations table, searches, or reports. It will appear as though the alarm never cleared.
To set up segmentation and annotations:
- Click Enable Segmentation. Note: Segmentation is only available for CX500, CX600, and CX700 loggers that have stopped logging. Segmentation is not available for CX400 and CX450 loggers, but click Enable Annotation and skip to step 4 if you want to add an annotation.
- Click Start Point and then click the point on the graph where you want segmentation to begin, or enter a specific date and time for the start point. Type a note related to the start point.
- Click Stop Point and then click the point on the graph where you want segmentation to end, or enter a specific date and time for the end point. Type a note related to the end point.
- Click Annotation and then click a point on the graph where you want to mark an event, or enter a specific date and time for the annotation. Type a note related to the annotation. Click to add additional annotations.
- Click Save. The portions of the graph before the start point date/time and after the stop point date/time are shaded gray on the graph. Any notes associated with the start and end points and annotations will be marked on the graph as shown in the following example.
The start and stop date listed in the Configuration Info section change to those selected in the Segmentation Settings, as applicable. The statistics are also recalculated based on the revised total data points remaining in the segmented data.
If you click Export, the generated report will be based on the segmented data instead of all data logged. In single logger PDF and Excel reports, the segmentation start, segmentation stop, and any annotations are reported in the Audit Report Table. The data points listed will begin at the segmentation start and stop times as applicable. Any annotations are listed as an event with the corresponding data point. In multi-device reports, a note will appear at the top of the PDF or Excel report to indicate the report includes segmented data.
To edit segmentation settings, repeat the steps above, making changes as necessary before clicking Save. To remove segmentation, click for Start Point and Stop Point and click Save.
To show or hide segmentation settings, click Enable or Disable Segmentation.
