Measurement data memory for 16 000 temperature readings, approx. 500 days of battery life
High data integrity, even with an empty battery
Waterproof according to IP 65, HACCP-compliant and certified according to EN 12830
Data analysis: three possible software versions to choose from, basic software available as a free download
If your professional work involves food or pharmaceutical products, you know that the storage temperature of your goods should not exceed specific limit values under any circumstances. The testo 174T mini temperature data logger helps you comply with the specified temperature ranges. It records the temperature values reliably and thus ensures uninterrupted measurement data recording and documentation.
This is what the testo 174T mini temperature data logger offers
You can save up to 16 000 readings with the testo 174T temperature data logger securely. Because measurement data you have saved will not be lost even when the battery is empty or being replaced. This means a high level of data security is guaranteed. You can easily and quickly read the current temperature measuring value on its large display, along with any possible violations of limit values. The integrated NTC sensor stands for a high level of accuracy. Its large measuring range, from -30 to +70 °C, and its compact design make the testo 174T temperature data logger a competent support for virtually every kind of temperature recording.
The testo 174T mini temperature data logger meets the requirements of EN 12830 and is HACCP-compliant, as well as having international HACCP certification, which means it is ideally suited for measurements in the food industry (e.g. for storage temperature measurement). Particularly practical: the data logger has water spray and jet protection according to IP 65. This enables it to be left in the measuring location even when warehouses are being cleaned. The temperature data logger is also suitable for temperature control in refrigerators or cold stores, because it can be used at temperatures down to -30 °C.
Programming and analysis with the mini temperature data logger
You can choose between three software versions for programming and reading your data logger and for analyzing the measurement data on the PC:
- ComSoft Basic software – available as a free download – for fast programming of the temperature data logger and easy data analysis
- ComSoft Professional software – can also be ordered as an option – offers a variety of possibilities for detailed analysis of temperature readings
- ComSoft CFR 21 Part 11 software – can also be ordered as an option – the best solution for special requirements according to CFR 21 Part 11 in the pharmaceutical sector
You need a USB interface for programming and reading the mini temperature data logger.
Attention: Please download the newest software version before using the USB interface for the first time. The software can be found in the download area.

Monitoring and documentation of the temperature in cold rooms
Many foods and drugs have to be stored within a specific cold temperature range. This can be done in individual cooled store rooms, but also in specialised cold stores or cold warehouses with high-rack facilities. The temperature must be continuously documented in all these cold storage facilities, because strict rules apply to quality management in both the food and drugs industries.
Data loggers are usually installed at the so-called critical control points (CCPs) of the cold room, in order to identify any possible temperature deviations and to introduce appropriate countermeasures. Critical points are for instance doors or passages through to other temperature areas within a warehouse.
Monitoring and documentation of transport temperature
For all goods which react sensitively to temperature fluctuations or have to be stored within a predefined temperature range, uninterrupted measurement data recording and documentation play a major role.
Incorrect temperature conditions during transport can lead to major losses of quality, including the total loss of value of the products that require monitoring.
Using a data logger, shipments can be checked for compliance with the specified temperature ranges and the data can then be read, analysed and archived by means of special software.
Monitoring the temperature in deep-freeze rooms for food
There are many facilities where (deep) frozen foods need to be stored. These range from individual deep-freeze rooms at small food producers (e.g. butcher's shops), restaurants and supermarkets, via deep-freeze rooms in the food processing industry, right through to specialized refrigerated warehouses/high-bay deep-freeze warehouses. In all of these facilities, the temperature has to be documented continuously. Only temperature recording devices that comply with EN 12830 are allowed to be used in Europe.
Data loggers are typically used to measure the air temperature in storage facilities of this kind. The measuring instrument is positioned in the deep-freeze room, where possible at critical locations, such as doors or refrigeration units, where it records temperature data at specified intervals (typically: every 15 minutes). The recorded data can subsequently be analyzed and archived using special software.
