Download and Archive Your Real-Time Data

CHESTERLAND OH - Using your Accsense real-time monitoring and alarm system, it's easy to access your critical data remotely from our cloud servers. To make it even easier, the Applications Specialists at CAS DataLoggers have put together a brief guide to show you how to download and archive your data from our Accsense servers for data organization and archiving purposes. We recommend that you do this periodically for effective recording and record-keeping. This data is conveniently stored in .CSV (comma separated value) format for use with Excel and other text editing programs so you can make copies and show proof of your temperature monitoring and alarming practices. Acccsense makes it all as simple as a mouse click - check out our new YouTube video detailing how.

A Note on Best Practices:

Accsense systems are capable of continually monitoring data at 2 different sample rates: the logging rate and the alarm check rate. The logging rate is the rate at which Accsense records data to the server, while the alarm check rate is the rate at which Accsense monitors the data for alarm purposes.

When users have already set the alarming sample rate, it is usually unnecessary to set the logging rate to a faster value, since Accsense will always monitor data at the check for alarm rate. In fact it's usually beneficial to set the alarm rate to sample several times an hour and then set a less frequent logging rate, for example once an hour. In the event of a power failure, Accsense will start logging at the alarm sample rate on its emergency buffer, so the buffer will fill up less quickly when users set the logging rate less frequently than the alarm rate.

Doing this also helps ensure that users see fewer gaps in their data in case of a power outage, as opposed to creating a very large number of recordings with a high logging rate. This will also help to prevent 'false positive' alarms which can occur during outages, so that users aren't called out of bed for a false alarm.

We also recommend that users periodically login to their Accsense account to check the system's data, especially if they have chosen to disable the automatic alarming functionality.

Accsense is already widely used in life sciences applications including biomedical, drug research, and pharmacies storing vaccines and other supplies. Accsense Product Manager Dana Kennedy comments, "Many of our customers have a few freezers or fridges they need to monitor, and Accsense is an extremely cost-effective way for them to get into Power Over Ethernet and wireless monitoring at a high level of functionality."
