Start Delay

Program Menu > Start Delay

The start delay determines how long after the logger is started before the first sample is actually taken.  The primary reason for the start delay is to allow for situations where the logger is started at room temperature, and then later placed in a controlled environment.


Enter the time you wish to elapse between starting of the Temprecord and the taking of the first sample.  This is normally set at manufacture to one minute, but you can alter it to any value between 10 seconds and 24 hours.


Temprecord has an internal time resolution of 2 seconds.  This means that whatever value you enter will be rounded to the nearest multiple of 2 seconds. The time is specified in hours, minutes, and seconds.


When you have entered all the data you wish to alter, click on 'OK' to update the parameters and exit the form.


Click on 'Apply' instead if you want to update the data in the logger, but not exit the form. This can be useful where you have several loggers to set up, each with the same or similar parameters.


Once the logger has been started, you cannot alter the user data, password, sample period or start delay.  Check that these are correct before you start the logger.


The start delay is set from the options default value whenever a logger is reused.  You can still alter the start delay before starting the logger however


When a MultiTrip or Scientific Temprecord logger is re-used, the sample period that was in effect for the previous use is retained.  If you require a different sample period, this should be programmed after the logger has been re-used.
