Working with LogMan II
About LogMan II
LogMan II is an application running on a handheld computer. LogMan II is designed to retrieve
log files from reefer containers and transfer them to a computer for analysis with LogView.
LogMan II can also be used to
setup controller data such as container ID, date, and time, etc.,
calibrate cargo probes, and
update controller firmware.
Please distinguish between the LogMan and the LogMan II, the ladder being the newest
generation. If you are still using the old version LogMan, you should consider upgrading to
LogMan II, as this is the only version being upgraded for newest controller versions etc. Only

Logs
Log Types
LogView displays container data in four types of logs: temperature logs, event logs, pre-trip
inspection (PTI) logs, and comment logs.
Though the logs are similar for all controller types, differences do exist. Sensor labels, event
texts and codes, PTI reports, and header information may vary from controller to controller.
Another difference is that there is an extra step involved in opening uP-x logs. But in LogView
the information is presented as similarly as possible.
Most of the data analysis and reporting tasks are performed in the log windows. It is in log
windows that you view container data, open graphs, and generate reports.

Reports
About reports
Reports are a special form of the logs that are formatted for printing. Once created, reports can
be printed or saved as files for later printing, archival, and distribution.
Reports can be generated from each type of log: temperature, event, PTI, and comment. There
is a “Cold Treatment” report that gives a summary of the number of hours a cargo has been
below a range of temperatures, and a “Smart Merge” report can be created that combines
temperature and event records in a single report.
The LogView user settings allow you to design reports to suit your needs. It is a good idea to
review the user settings before creating reports.
Creating a Temperature Log Report
Temperature reports contain sensor data. You can specify the range of dates and the types of
data to include.
Step
Action
1 Open the temperature log for the desired container.
2 If desired, limit the range of data included in the report by selecting it in the Data
tab or filtering dates in the Settings tab. See Selecting Data for Reports 34 .
3 Select Tool > Page Header to select or deselect the page header option. When
checked, LogView prints the information in the Header tab at the top of each page
in the report.
4 Select File > Print from the temperature log menu. The report opens in the Print
Preview dialog.
Creating an Event Log Report
Event reports list events recorded by the datalogger in chronological order. They can be filtered
to include only specified events.
Step
Action
1 Open the logs for the desired container.
2 Click the title bar of the Event Log, or select Window > Event from the
Temperature Log menu.
3 To filter the report to include only specific events, for example events related to
defrost cycles, you must make the NUM field visible and apply a filter to the event
log. See Applying an event filter 19 .

Organizing Container Data
Recommended file location
Note: Saving files in the root directory of your hard disk is not recommended because the root
directory contains critical system files, and placing all files in one directory makes them difficult
to find.
It is recommended that you create a “My Containers” folder for all container data and place this
folder in your “My Documents” folder. See A suggested folder structure 41 .
Risk of overwriting files
Log files are typically assigned a file name based on the container’s ID. If a container log file is
stored on your computer, it may be overwritten by a second log file from the same container if
placed in the same folder.
It is your responsibility to save log files in a safe archive storage location.
A suggested folder structure
A chronological folder system is a convenient way to organize container data. The suggested
folder structure has a “My Containers” folder with sub-directories (folders) for each year. Each
year folder has numbered folders for each month. Log files are saved in the month folders.
© 2016 Emerson Climate Technologies - Transportation Solutions ApS
42
Operating LogView
With this structure
All logs are in a common folder, which helps when using the search function.
You do not have to think about where to place new files.
Folders are listed in chronological order.
It is easy to identify obsolete files that can be deleted.
You will not accidentally overwrite earlier files from the same container.
If you have multiple files from the same container, it is easy to identify which one is the
latest.
Creating the suggested folders
To create the suggested folder structure, follow these steps.
Step
Action
1 Select the drive where your My Documents folder is located, usually C:, from the
Select Archive Drive dropdown list.
2 Open (double-click) your My Documents folder in Select Archive Path list box.
3 Drag the
icon to the Select Archive File list box.
4 Enter “My Containers” in the New Directory dialog and click OK.
5 The My Containers folder appears in the Select Archive Path list box. Doubleclick it.
6 Again, drag the
icon to the Select Archive File list box. Name the new
directory for the year and click OK.
7 The folder appears under My Containers. Double-click the year folder to open it.
8 Drag the
icon to the Select Archive File list box. Name the new directory “01January” or something similar. (Numbering the month folders forces LogView to
display them in order.) Click OK.
9 Repeat step 8 for each month.
6.2
Working with Archive Files
About archive files
In LogView, an archive file is a file that contains log data that LogView cannot read directly.
Archive files can come from proprietary data retrieval tools, REFCON, and data compression
software such as WinZip. Files from these applications must be converted to LogView format.
Logs retrieved using the LogMan II, the LogMan or the Dru2 software are in LogView format and

are ready for viewing; no conversion is necessary. Logs retrieved using Thermo King
Smartsponge are in archive format when they come from µP-series controllers, and in LogView
format when they come from MP-series controllers.
Archive file types supported by LogView
LogView supports six file formats: it’s own plus five types of archive files. The formats are listed
below along with the associated controller types and retrieval tools. For a list of supported
