Description

The TandD MCR-4TC is a four channel battery operated temperature data logger designed to measure a wide range of temperatures using a thermocouple sensor. Up to 4 units can be coupled together making it possible to measure and record up to 16 channels.

Users can easily switch the LCD display between real-time measurement and the trend graph display.

Using a USB connection, recorded data can be sent directly to a PC, or a SD card (not supplied) can be used. Data can also be viewed and checked on the handy LCD display.

The MCR-4TC is convenient for recording temperatures in pipes and ducts, cooking equipment such as fryers and ovens, and recording boiler temperatures. Also great for management of refrigerated and frozen goods, or temperature testing of the electronic substrates.

DimensionsH 120 mm x W 75 mm x D 32 mm

    • *1 : MCR-4TC has superior noise filter, but the measurement may sometimes fluctuate due to strong noise. Especially when the recording interval is set to 200 ms or less, the filtering becomes weaker and hence the fluctuation may become greater.
    • *2 : If the logging capacity is not filled at the end of one recording session, the logger can record up to 30 times.
    • *3 : Group Recording may not be started depending on the recording or measurement interval specifications of the connected Master unit.
    • *4 : Please check the Functions for information on memory cards whose operation has been confirmed.
    • *5 : Battery life varies depending upon the ambient temperature, the recording interval, the number of measurement channels, and the frequency of data export to a memory card.
