Thermistor Probe Data Logger
Our standalone thermistor probe data logger with LCD records and displays over 32,000 temperature readings from the supplied thermistor probe. The PPL-USB-TP-LCD features an LCD and push-button which allow the user to cycle through the most recent, highest and lowest stored readings.
The EL-WIN-USB software enables quick configuration and data download via the USB port available to download for free. Supplied with thermistor probe and long-life lithium battery.
The temperature data logger is suitable for a wide variety of applications including food temperature storage and vaccine storage.
In addition to data loggers, Process Parameters offers an extensive range of custom-built temperature sensors (Thermocouples, Pt100’s) manufactured to your requirements. Also available are infrared sensors and Thermal Imaging Cameras.

What is a Thermistor Data Logger?
A thermistor data logger is a device used to measure and record temperature data over time. It consists of a thermistor, which is a type of temperature sensor, and a data logging system. Here’s how it works:
- Thermistor: A thermistor is a temperature-sensitive resistor that changes its electrical resistance in response to changes in temperature. The resistance of the thermistor decreases as the temperature increases and vice versa. This property is used to accurately measure temperature.
- Data Logging System: The data logging system consists of electronic components and a memory unit to record the temperature measurements from the thermistor. It may also include a display for real-time temperature monitoring and buttons for configuration.
- Data Storage: The data logger stores the temperature data at regular intervals, typically in a digital format. This data can be stored in onboard memory or transmitted wirelessly to a computer or cloud-based storage for analysis and further processing.
- Usage: Thermistor data loggers are widely used in various applications, including environmental monitoring, industrial processes, scientific experiments, and more. They provide a convenient way to collect temperature data over an extended period, which can be crucial for quality control, research, or compliance with temperature-related standards.
- Analysis: After data collection, the stored temperature data can be downloaded and analysed using software, which allows for the visualisation of temperature trends and the identification of any irregularities or anomalies.
A thermistor data logger is a useful tool for tracking and recording temperature changes over time, making it valuable in situations where temperature monitoring and data collection are important. For more information, read our in-depth guide about ‘what is a thermistor‘.
