4 Data Logger monitoring systems Tips in Line with Sustainability
1. Regularly check any wires and cables to ensure there is no damage, and that nothing has accidentally been unplugged, as these could cause incorrect readings.
2. Calibrate your device at least once a year to ensure the probe and monitor is working to full capacity. Equipment not running at its full potential has the effect of using more energy and costing more to run for the end user.
3. Most monitoring systems run on batteries, and it is important that when it is time to replace them, they are disposed of sustainably. You can return lead-acid batteries to a battery retailer or local household hazardous waste collection program; do not put lead-acid batteries in the trash or municipal recycling bins.
4. To get the best results from your monitors ensure you place it in the ideal location. For example, if monitoring room air quality the monitor should be placed in the breathing zone, a height range between 3 and 6 ft (0.9 and 1.8 m) above the floor. Placement in this zone will ensure that the device collects samples from air that building occupants are breathing.
