GO Wireless Loggers are flat, compact in size and digitally record the time and temperature of a
perishable product’s environment during storage or in-transit. Easy to use in combination with the
AutoSense™ Gateway, loggers do not require ongoing calibration to maintain accuracy.

Loggers have the capability to measure ambient air temperature and are also equipped to take a
surface read of the object to which they are attached, providing a more accurate assessment of
actual product temperature. With preprogramming functionality, standard temperature range
specifications can be set for the most frequently shipped perishable items

2. Temperature Range – Preprogrammed temperature alert ranges are displayed. If no alerts are
    programed “Data Logger” is listed.
3. LEDs/Visual Indicators – A green LED will flash to indicate the logger is on and actively monitoring
   time and temperature. A amber LED will flash to indicate wireless transmission is off.
4. Start Button – Press and hold for a minimum of 3 seconds to activate; LEDs will flash in a sequence
   to indicate successful activation. Loggers should be activated when the product is ready to be

Note that each logger is sealed in a waterproof plastic pouch. Emerson GO Wireless Loggers can
be used in almost any environment, including fully emerged in liquid.


Operating Range

Specified operating range for GO Wireless Loggers is -20°C to 60°C (-4°F to 140°F).

Activating GO Wireless Loggers

• Activate the logger by pressing and holding the green “Press & Hold” button in the lower right-
    hand corner of the logger for 3 seconds; green and amber LEDs will flash in a sequence to indicate
    successful activation.
• Once the logger has been started: time and temperature recording will begin recording, wireless
    transmission will be enabled, and the green LED will flash every 4 seconds.
• Time and temperature recording cannot be disabled once started.
• Apply the logger to product or product packaging.


Logger Placement Scenarios

The form factor of the GO Wireless Logger promotes
its use in a variety of scenarios including at the pallet,
carton and product level.

Pallet Level - Many customers apply loggers to the side
of a pallet. Emerson provides signage and clear plastic
pouching to facilitate locating loggers on pallets at the
receiving end as depicted in the photo to the right.

Many customers place several GO Wireless Loggers on
different pallets within a load to perform temperature
mapping. This promotes broader sampling and
provides more detailed information on the temperature
fluctuations experienced within a container.

                                                       Carton Level - Many customers with high-value
                                                       product where temperature specifications are critical
                                                       may choose to use Emerson GO Wireless Loggers on
                                                       each individual carton inside a master case.

                                                       Product Level - Loggers are sealed in a plastic pouch
                                                       and take surface reads of the object to which they are
                                                       attached. They can be placed in or laid directly on top
                                                       of product for highly accurate temperature reads.

                                                       Logger temperature monitoring loggers, it is
                                                       recommended that placement of loggers be clearly
                                                       flagged on the outside of packaging. Emerson Cargo
                                                       Solutions provides customers with “Find It” signs
                                                       upon request. Certain sign models can also be used
                                                       as return mailers.
