This single-use in-transit data logger is accepted by most receivers and is the ideal cold chain management tool for tracking temperature during transportation of perishable products. It can be used on all outbound loads, so suppliers are able to consolidate their temperature recorders to one model. Using the FlashLink VU In-Transit Logger means there is no need to stock various brands in the shipping office, making inventory management easy, and eliminating the problem of running out of any one particular type of logger for a specific receiver.

This logger is designed for use on shipments of products requiring preconfigured alarm settings to alert receivers with a flashing red LED when temperature during transit has gone above 36°F/2°C or below 28°F/-2°C. Mounted on a bright green shipping card, it is easy for receivers to locate the logger upon arrival, which helps to expedite the process of downloading trip information. Our patented Shadow Log™ feature guarantees data, even if the shipper forgets to start the unit. The loggers are downloaded using free FlashLink Data Manager software, and reports are saved in PDF format to email and archive for record keeping, traceability and to help comply with HACCP and FSMA (Food Safety Modernization Act) requirements.

FlashLink Data Manager is a simple program used to create a locked PDF file with data downloaded from any FlashLink data logger. Once installed on a Windows PC, the program runs automatically when a data logger is connected via the USB adapter. The PDF is then created, saved, and displayed on screen automatically. These PDF files can easily be archived and emailed.

Connecting a FlashLink 8-pin data logger to a USB port requires the use of the DeltaTrak 8-pin to USB adapter.
