Wireless Thermo Recorder RTR-51/RTR-52
1. Outline of System
4. About the LCD Display
This system makes use of the RTR-51/52 unit to measure and record temperature
data, which can then be downloaded via wireless transmission to our handheld RTR57C Data Collector Unit. The RTR-57C Unit can then be connected to your computer
for data analysis and management with our exclusive software.
Besides the collection of recorded data, it is possible to monitor current temperature
readings, start recording and check data anytime without physically collecting
the RTR-51/52 units. Communication between units can be done via optical
communication, as well as wireless communication.
■ Setting the Recording Conditions
The recording conditions include [Recording Mode], [Recording Interval], [Start
Recording Date and Time] and [Unit of Temperature]. Detailed instructions on
how to change these settings are provided in the User's Manual for either the
RTR-57C or TR-50C.
● Recording
■ Wireless Communication Function
Via special short wave radio communication recorded data can be downloaded
from an RTR-51/52 unit and saved to the RTR-57C Data Collector Unit. Recording
settings and recording start can also be controlled via wireless communication.
Wireless Communication can occur between an RTR-51/52 Unit and an
RTR-57C Unit within a range of up to about 330 ft [100 meters], if unobstructed

and direct.
Note: In order to collect data via wireless communication, it is necessary to
register via computer the RTR-51/52 unit as a Remote Unit in the RTR-57C
Unit you wish to use. For details about making these settings, please see the
Help Menu in [T&D Recorder for Windows] or the User's Manual for [T&D
Recorder for Windows].
Mode: Select from two types of Recording Mode
ONE-TIME MODE:When the data capacity of 16,000 readings is reached,
the LCD display will indicate [FULL] and recording will stop.
ENDLESS MODE: When the data capacity of 16,000 readings is reached,
the data will be erased in order from the oldest data first and recording will
*Below is an estimate of the amount of time it will take for the unit to
become [FULL] in the ONE-TIME MODE.
Calculation Example:
30sec (recording interval) x 16,000 readings (capacity limit) = 480,000
seconds = about 5 days and 13 hours.
Basic Functions of RTR-51/52
Wide Temperature Measurement Range
RTR-51 (Internal Sensor) can measure between –40 ℉ to 176 ℉
RTR-52 (External Sensor) with the included sensor, can measure from –76 ℉ to
311 ℉ .
■ Downloading Data = (Data Collection)
After downloading you can save the data into files and folders, create
graphs, make data tables, create text file format files for use with popular
spreadsheet software, and print graphs and tables.
■ Setting Upper and Lower Limits
By making upper and lower limit settings you can check your recorded data
as it is downloaded for data that exceeds the set limits.

3. Settings and Communication
2. Getting Started
To start and stop recording, make or change the various recording settings and/or collect data please see the
following instructions.
◆ Insert the batteries
1. Remove the screws and take off the back case.
For details about how to change settings and about communications please see the User's Manual that comes
with the RTR-57C or the TR-50C. You can also find detailed information in the User's Manual that accompanies
the software (Thermo Recorder for Windows) and in the Help Menu of the software.
◆ Using Wireless Communication with an RTR-57C Unit
2.Insert the battery in its tube and place in unit as in diagram.
By registering an RTR-51/52 unit as a Remote Unit of an RTR-57C, it is possible to carry out wireless data
communication (special short wave radio) allowing you to start and stop recording, make recording condition
settings and collect data without having to handle the RTR-51/52 units.
● If you are going to be using wireless communication
it is necessary to register the [Group Name] and
[Remote Unit Name] information in the RTR-57C
● Make sure no water or foreign objects get inside the case.
