General Description
Data transfer to PC
Battery Replacement
HI144 is a temperature data logger with internal NTC sensor
able to memorizes 8000 logs. The user can program the device
or download the logged data through the HI144002 USB
communication cradle.
The main features of HI144 temperature logger include:
• Up to 8000 logged samples
• Selectable logging interval, from 1 minute to 24 hours
• Selectable measurement unit, °C or °F
• Programmable high and low alarms
• Logger password
• Logging through PC Start, Button Start or Data/Time Start
• Non-volatile logging parameters and data storage
• Storage and display of minimum or maximum measured values
• Battery level indicator on display
• IP65 protection
To download logged data, remove the logger from its installation
and place it on HI144002 communication cradle connected to
your PC through a USB port.
Each time the battery is installed, the logger enters reset status
and displays the “PC” message.
The memory content can then be downloaded from the instrument to the PC using the Windows® compatible application
software offered by Hanna Instruments.
This software allows you to use the powerful capabilities of most
spread sheet programs (e.g. Excel©, Lotus 1-2-3©) and to make
any elaboration available (e.g. graphics, statistic analysis, etc.).
The user-friendly online help and clear messages will support
you throughout.
During data transfer the yellow LED on the cradle blinks to
indicate that the communication is active. Do not remove
the logger while the LED is blinking.
Then it starts to calculate remaining battery life and displays
current battery level through a 4-tag indicator.
When the last tag (empty battery) starts blinking, the battery
level is below 5%. It is recommended to change the battery
with a new one.
Battery replacement must only take place in a safe area and
using the appropriate battery type (CR2032 3V lithium battery).
Note: It is recommended to use a new battery for
replacement, otherwise the battery level indication may
not be reliable.
