What is a Data Logger ?

Temperature Recorder

For the pharmaceutical industry, “data logger” is widely used to designate a device used for monitoring thermo-sensitive pharma products during transport and / or temporary storage.

Battery-powered, formerly mechanical, the data logger is today an electronic device that can be programmed to record individual values over periods of a few hours to several months.

Mostly used to monitor the temperature conditions, according to the versions, it can also measure the relative humidity and thus ensure that the pharma products have not suffered any degradation during the transport phase.

Data Logger Management

There are today a multitude of brands and models of data loggers. Most of the time, the data logger is usually a connectable device that must be plug to a computer to extract the data. This implies in the first place to have the data logger to have the data.

For users, given the complexity of logistics flows, it is frequent to manage several types of recorders at the same time in a total absence of common standards. Quite often, reading requires a specific cable or software and the use of USB removable media like low cost models represents a real danger for users IT infrastructure that brings the complexity to a higher level.

The management of this organization requires costly human resources whose lack of efficiency is often deplored. Therefore the system is constrained by the heaviness and complexity of the tasks to be performed.

Contactless Monitoring

Driven by the digital revolution and the amount of digital data to manage, it becomes essential to automate the collection, processing of data and alerts.

The so-called near field technology (NFC) now opens up concrete opportunities that can significantly improve the operational efficiency of our cold chain monitoring processes.

Indeed, the innovative Sensolabo® NFC secures and accelerates this process.  Data extraction, transmission, cloud storage and geolocation is made within fractions of a second only…And the sender is alerted at the same time !

Data loggers – Why Should You Change for NFC ?

NFC is Easy to Use

Above all, an NFC data logger is very easy to use. It does not require any user training and does not require a cable or computer to be read.

In a single gesture and without contact, it is now possible to read, send and store temperature data instantly.

3 billion reading possibilities

You just need an NFC Smartphone and approach it to the data logger so that it starts automatically! It works with Android phone and Iphone (from 7 or higher)

You are never short of solutions, there are more than 3 billion compatible smartphones in the world.

The list of NFC Smartphones


Technological, Practical and Affordable

An NFC data logger is more than just a robust and affordable temperature recorder, it gives you access to premium features like geolocation at each reading.

Data loggers USB - Quels Risques pour votre Entreprise ?

USB Data loggers – What Risks for your Company ?

USB Data loggers : An Important Risk

According to the Allianz 2017 risk barometer, companies cite cybers incidents as the third most important danger and these fears are justified when speaking about USB data loggers !

Among the most important risks, the infestation by the USB removable supports represents a real and serious threat. The situation is to the point that, gradually, USB storage media are banned by companies concerned about their safety.


The End of USB Data loggers

Hardware manufacturers themselves remove gradualy the traditional USB 2.0 plugs from their computers.

As an example, Apple have already removed USB plugs from some of their models.

The IT security policies of many companies now force to return all removable media such as USB dataloggers to their owners…



The USB hacking technique is one of the most effective. According to Wikileaks, the CIA itself has developed a hacking technique based on removable storage media…  A mechanism that has already been exploited by Stuxnet, the malware that infected the centrifuges of the uranium enrichment program of Iran.

Do the USB security risks and the emergence of new modes of communication (NFC, Bluetooth) are pushing the traditional USB dataloggers towards the exit?


Let’s discover our range of NFC dataloggers

What is NFC?

Near Field Communication (NFC) is a short-range contactless communication technology.

The Near Field Communication is implemented on standard on almost all smartphones and it is estimated that there will be nearly 3 billions units in the world by the end of 2023.
