Summit LOGGER Instruction Sheet
Instruction Sheet
The USB Temperature Logger from Summit Accucold® is designed to record refrigerator or freezer temperatures to any USB
flash drive for display and analysis on a PC. Using NIST traceable probes, the Temperature Logger measures and saves the
temperature readings in 15-minute intervals. When ready to see the results, just plug the flash drive into your PC or Mac and
transfer the data to Microsoft Excel, where you can graph, chart or print the data in whatever format you require. A reusable
2GB flash drive with 6 months of storage capacity is included with the Summit Accucold® Temperature Logger.
You will need:
PC or Mac
accucold Flash drive &
Temperature logger
Initial Setup – Setting the time:
1. Insert the supplied flash drive into your computer.
2. Go to My Computer and locate the drive labeled Accucold.
3. Launch the Accucold program.
4. Select Open Drive to tell the program the location of the Accucold drive.
5. Select the Accucold drive from the drive list.
6. Once the drive is selected, click on the Set Time button

Using the Temperature Logger
Technical Data
Viewing the log files:
The accuracy of the Accucold® Temperature Logger is
as follows:
From -25°C to 8°C: 1C° (-13°F to 46.4°F: 1.8°F)
From -30°C to -25°C: 1.5C° (-22°F to -13°F: 2.7°F)
1. Stop recording by holding the white button down
for 1 second. The LED will flicker and then remain
on steady to indicate recording has stopped.
Important: To prevent loss of data, do not remove
drive without following this procedure.
2. It is now safe to remove the flash drive.
3. Insert the flash drive into your computer and
navigate to the drive labeled Accucold.
4. Open the file labeled #.csv (i.e., 0.csv or other)
in Excel or other CSV-compatible spreadsheet
Note: If you wish to continue recording data after viewing the
files, you can re-insert the flash drive into the Logger, but DO
NOT hold down the white button.
Charting the data in Excel:
Simply select all three columns (Date, Time, Temperature)
and use the Charting Wizard to create the graph of your
Clearing the flash drive:
If light is on steady
A steady light indicates that the device has stopped
recording. This can occur if the drive has run out of space or
if the drive is not fully reinserted after a drive removal. Make
sure that the drive is inserted all the way. It will take 20
seconds for the device to start recording again, indicated by
the light flashing every second.
If Time is wrong
Time may not have been set. If log time starts at 12:00
AM, January 1st, 2000, the time has not been set. See
Quickstart guide for time-setting instructions.
If Temperatures are wrong
Check connection to probe. Values under -100 degrees
or non-numerical values indicate that the probe is not
The flash drive supplied with the Temperature Logger has
enough memory to save 6 months of data. When the flash
drive is full, the light on the Logger will be on steady rather
than blinking. To clear the drive, remove it. (If the light on
the Logger is blinking, remember to hold the white button
down for 1 second until the light flickers and then is on
steady before removing the flash drive.) Insert the flash
drive into your computer, and either erase the drive or save
the data onto your hard drive (or elsewhere) if you wish to
preserve it.
If light is off
Battery replacement:
The battery needs to be replaced. (See Maintenance.)
To prevent data loss, change the battery in the Temperature
Logger at least once a year. You will need a 3-volt CR2032
coin cell. Remove the old battery and set the new one into
place, being sure that the polarity orientation is correct.
This can indicate a power loss to the data logger. Check
the connection at the rear of the unit. If it is connected,
then check the power to the refrigerator. The temperature
logger is powered from the unit itself, and if power is lost to
the unit, the temperature logger will also lose power. When
power is restored, the power loss event will be recorded and
you can determine how long power has been out.
If power is restored to unit but time reads
