2. Applications and Safety Regulations
2.1 Operating Temperatures
- The loggers can be used in the temperature range between -35° and +55°C. However, it becomes
increasingly difficult to read the display when the temperature falls below -20°C.
- Battery self-discharging increases at temperatures exceeding 45°C and continuous operation at tem- peratures above 45°C can reduce the serviceable life by approx. 1/3.
- Lithium battery passivation, due to long-term use at temperatures above 40°C, can result in temporary read problems (self-discharge protection). This can be rectified by repeated evaluation.
- Long-term use at low temperatures down to -40°C does not present any problems, but may reduce the quality of the display.
- We can not guarantee that the logger will always function properly if it is implemented at temperatures below -40°C. Experience has shown that the battery freezes at approx. -50°C, that it is no longer possible toperform measurements and that the timer tracking function can be temporarily interrupted. To make furtheroperation possible, the logger must be reprogrammed when room temperature is reestablished.
- Temperatures exceeding 55°C can result in permanent discoloration of the display.
- Temperatures exceeding 70°C can result in deformation of the housing.
- A gas explosion can occur at the lithium battery if temperatures exceeding 100°C are reached.
2.2 Exceptional Environmental Conditions
Pay attention to the following when loggers are used under exceptional environmental conditions:
- UV rays diminish the stability of the housing
- IR radiation (warmth) and superheated steam can result in deformation of the housing
- A vent hole into the battery cover (Ø 2mm) should be drilled at negative pressures of <0.4 bar abs.
- There is a risk that the battery may explode if the logger is used in conjunction with microwaves
2.3 Precautionary Measures for Handling Units with Lithium Batteries
- Do not short-circuit batteries: Danger of explosions
- Do not throw units which contain batteries into fire: Danger of explosions
- Do not subject the batteries to mechanical stress and do not dismantle them. The leaking battery fluid
is highly corrosive and lithium can generate severe heat when it comes into contact with moisture or itcan ignite fire.
- Do not heat up battery-driven units to temperatures exceeding 100°C: Danger of explosions- Avoid violent knocks and blows- Follow the manufacturer's specifications for battery storage- Return the batteries to the supplier for correct waste disposal 2.4 Serviceable Life
Battery life-span at a log interval of 1 minute 1.5 - 2 years.
Battery life-span at a log interval of 1 minute 12 - 18 month.
A second rH/T probe leads to enhanced battery consumption.
Battery life-span 12 - 18 month, depending on measurement interval and resolution This indicator (see page 13) is going to be switched on at the time the battery life ends.
Please change the battery according to the procedure described in chapter2.8 at your next possibility.

2.5 Power-save Mode
The ECOLOG logger have a power-save mode, which switches off the display. As a result, measurements
are only made during the defined log interval. A rotating element located in the display for measured values
indicates that the datalogger is still functioning correctly during the recording process.
The elproLOG Software - Extended Setup - Display mode / Powersave is responsible for switching this
mode on and off.
The measured value display at dataloggers which have a key pad can be switched on temporarily for testingpurposes.
2.6 Alarm Processing
In power-save mode, alarm processing is executed either at 1 minute cycles if the
recording interval exceeds 1 minute or at the recording interval for shorter intervals.
If the logger is in stop-mode, then the alarm contact want be opperated anymore.

2.7 Display at ECOLOG TP2 & TP4-L
The measured value display is updated at 4 second cycles, always with the low resolution of measured values.
Only measured values logged during the recording interval can also be logged with function: „High Resolution".
The reason for this is the higher current consumption resulting from function: „High Resolution".
2.8 Maintenance
To ensure proper functioning of the logger the following steps should be part of a periodical maintenance
- Calibration check, for detailed information see also data sheet ECOLOG D-EZ-2001E
- Readout of the data logger and saving the file; Check of the alarm function if used
- Battery replacement (Part No 2820, set of 2, storage time 5 years; Lithium 3.6V, 1900mAh,
An energy consumption count monitors the life-span of the logger battery. For this reason, only
the specific battery recommended by the manufacturer should be used in the logger. Do not remove
the battery from the logger during non-working periods. The use of other batteries or the removal
of battery will produce incorrect status information at the battery indicator.
You must reset the battery change time (elproLOG Software - Extended Setup -
Programming of battery changetime.) after you have replaced the battery, otherwise
the energy counter will not function correctly!

Getting StartedECOLOG 4. Definition of Alarm Parameters
The dataloggers ECOLOG have an alarm indication feature and all models except the TN2 are also
equipped with an alarm contact. The alarm parameters are defined in the „Setup of Alarm Parame-
ters" window.
- Alarmindication
The alarm indication is independent of the sensor number, but all sensors that may cause an alarm have to be selected in the measurement function. The alarm indication has to be reset manually. It is possibleto reset the alarm indication by the PC software, the keyboard or the alarm reset connector.
In case of an alarm indication, the alarm contact is closed (except for a TN2). The alarm contact isindependent of the sensor number, but all sensors that may cause an alarm have to be selected in themeasurement function.
- Hysteresis is used for controlling external processes (P-Controller) only.
Set to 0 for alarm function with time delay
- Example: a) Alarmfunction with time delay: Hysteresis = 0°C

b) Controlfunction for P-Controller: Hysteresis = 1°C
Overstepping the limit value Over/Understepping the limit valueMeasurement values within the limits Understepping the limit value By activating this check box, the alarm function is switched on, see also chapter 2.6.
Data entry field for lower and uper limit values.
The switching hysteresis is used to avoid uncontrolled on/off switching of the contact. Tomove the contact, the measurement value has to differ from the limit value by the valuedefined in this field.
Alarm Delay Time
- normal
To close the alarm contact, the duration of a measurement value, outside the limit values,
has to be longer than the delay time defined in the "normal" data entry field.
- defrost on
If the "check defrost" function is selected and the defrost contact D1 is closed, then the
duration of a measurement value, outside the limit values, has to be longer than the delay
time defined in the "defrost on" data entry field.
Alarm Output
- no selection
This mode is used for all applications where the alarm contact is used to control any
external devices like a flash light or a telephon dailling unit.
The contact will be closed as long as a limit value is exeded.
- using CRA bracket
This mode is used in combination with a 280x-CRA bracket only.
- self-sustaining
This mode is used for all applications where the alarm contact is used to control any
external devices like a flash light or a telephon dailling unit.
The contact will be closed till the alarm is reseted by the user.
Close / Download / Print Status
These buttons are used to program the logger, to printout the current status of thelogger and to close the „Setup of Alarm Parameters" window.

RAM IMG-BMP destroyed
This error message is visible in the logger status information, line: Module time. The reason for such an
error message might be, a battery replacement where the battery change time has not been set. (see also
chapter 2.7 Maintenance).
Please do not calibrate with 2 connected rH/T sensorsFor sensor exchange, the corresponding humidity channel (Channel 2 or 4) has toshow n.c. on the display at least twice before the new sensor is connected to thelogger! Please take care about the sensor position before connecting it. There is noforce on the sensor needed to plug it on. See also the printing on the casing of the logger(TH1 only) Digital Inputs In some of the documents the digital inputs are labelled with DigitIn. The same digital
inputs are labelled in the elproLOG software with D only.
ECOLOG data loggers require an evaluation software of version 3.20 or higher.
For more product information please see elproLOG CD-ROM.
All ECOLOG data loggers are
available with EEx Zone 1 approval.
For applications in hazardous areas the ELPRO documentation D-EZ-7003Ba
has to be taken into consideration!
