The MadgeTech EggTemp-RH is specifically designed to measure and record the humidity and temperature of eggs during shipping, storage and incubation. The logger thermally responds to an environment the same way a real egg does, simulating the humidity and temperature experience of the actual product. The EggTemp-RH is ideal for applications involving egg shipment, egg storage or hatcheries.
The EggTemp-RH can measure relative humidity from 0 to 95% with up to ±2.0%RH accuracy, and temperatures from 0 to 60˚C with ±0.5˚C accuracy. The non-volatile memory can hold up to 32,767 readings and will retain data even if the battery becomes discharged. The reading rate is adjustable from 1 reading every 2 seconds up to 1 reading every 12 hours. All saved data is date and time stamped. Thye EggTemp-RH has a user replaceable battery that provides up to one year of life (typical, at a 15 minute reading rate).
The MadgeTedch EggTemp-RH includes a programmable temperature alarm with high and low limits selectable in software; when logged data reaches or exceeds either limit, the red LED blinks every three seconds.
The MadgeTedch EggTemp-RH requires the IFC202 interface package which includes software, a manual and an RS232 interface cable. MadgeTech's data logger software offers an easy way to analyze data. Data can be viewed in Celsius or Fahrenheit, and in graph, summary or data formats. For further analysis data can also be exported to Excel.

This product can be used in the following applications:
The Background: Our customer is a trucking company that specializes in transporting food products including eggs. Recently they have had a disagreement with an egg producer who thinks their eggs are spoiling faster due to the trucking company failing to maintain the proper temperature during transport. The trucking company seeks a way to continuously monitor the temperatures to which the eggs are exposed during the entire process of transporting them.
The Problem:* The eggs are moved from location to location during transport including loading docks and inside the refrigerated trailers. Monitoring all these locations isn’t entirely practical.
The Solution: The MadgeTech EggTemp-RH was designed for this exact application. The egg-shaped data loggers are meant to be placed in the cartoon with the eggs during transport. This allows simple and continuous monitoring of temperature and humidity conditions whether the eggs are sitting on a loading dock or inside a refrigerated trailer.
