USRIC-8 Single-Use Data Logger


The USRIC-8 Single-Use Data Logger is a cost-effective solution for the measuring and recording of real-time temperature readings over a measurement range of -25°C to 60°C (-13°F to 140°F). It features a memory capacity to record up to 8,000 temperature readings and has a 6-month operating life. A red “ALERT” indicator provides an immediate indication – without access to a PC – if any readings are outside the limits specified when the unit was configured. A green “OK” indicator suggests that the temperature recorder is operating. Configuring the device is possible and can be easily achieved by plugging the USRIC-8 Temperature Recorder directly into the computer USB for a wide range of recording and alert conditions. No Interface Cradle is required as the temperature recorder has a built-in USB connector. Through the free LogTag Analyser software, users can download the recorded data in a fully detailed PDF report.


  • Sensor Measurement Range: -25°C to 60°C (-13°F to 140°F)
  • Operating Temperature Range: -25°C to 60°C (-13°F to 140°F)
  • Storage Temperature Range: 0°C to 40°C (32°F to 104°F)
  • Rated Temperature Reading Accuracy: Better than ±0.5°C (±0.9°F) for -5°C to 30°C (23°F to 86°F). ±0.8°C (±1.5°F) or better for measurements in other areas of rated range. Actual performance is typically much better than the rated values. Please see the Rated Absolute Accuracy chart below. Accuracy figures can be improved by recalibration.
  • Rated Temperature Reading Resolution: < 0.1°C/F. Please see the Rated Native Resolution chart below. LogTag Analyser® currently displays to one decimal place of °C or °F. The native resolution is what is stored in the LogTag®.
  • Sensor Reaction Time: Typically less than 5 minutes (T90) in moving air (1m/s)
  • Recording Capacity: 8,001 temperature readings, 26.6 days @ 5min logging, 80 days @ 15min logging
  • Sampling Interval Configurable: From 1 minute to 18 hours
  • Logging Start Options: Push-button start or specific date & time
  • Recording Indication: Flashing ‘OK’ indicator/flashing ‘ALERT’ indicator
  • Alarms 1 configurable upper and 1 configurable lower alarms
  • Download Time: Typically with full memory (8,001 readings) in less than 20 seconds from the time of insertion to availability of PDF report. Typically less than 10 seconds from the time of insertion to availability of LTD file in LogTag® Analyser (if configured).
  • Environmental: IEC 60529, IP64 with USB cap fitted
  • Power Source: 3V Li-Mg Battery
