OMEGA USB Loggers vs Eupry
We have put together this comparison to help you find the right equipment whether you work in a laboratory, pharmacy, transport company or within the food sector.
The products we have compared with Eupry’s data loggers in this post are USB loggers from OMEGA. The company is based in the US and is specialised in sensors for a wide variety of uses, such as temperature, pressure, force, pH levels, humidity, air quality, voltage etc.
So, what are the differences between OMEGA USB loggers and a WiFi data logger from Eupry? There are some similarities, but as this article will show, there are a number of key areas where there are major differences.
- Eupry provides free annual calibration by providing an instant device replacement.
- Eupry’s WiFi temperature data logger sends alarms via SMS and email when temperature limits are exceeded.
- Monitor data easily from an app or web browser with Eupry.
- Eupry’s subscription plan provide an ongoing and proactive support.
- Eupry’s wireless data logger automatically sends data to servers which prevents loss of data.
- With Eupry, a single click can change the settings on all your data loggers at once, saving countless hours.
- If you have a small setup and it is not important that temperatures are sometimes exceeded, you should go for a USB data logger from OMEGA
- If you have other needs than temperature logging, you should go for a USB data logger from OMEGA.
Like any machinery, regular inspections are crucial to ensure temperature loggers accuracy and reliability. The majority of data loggers on the market do not include a calibration service, meaning customers each year have to use their supplier or a third party to ensure that their devices are calibrated.
In cases where users forget or simply miss the annual calibration deadline, there is a risk of reduction in accuracy and reliability, or more crucial deviations from the quality system. For companies working within food or pharmaceutical industries this could potentially lead to non-compliances with GDP (Good Distribution Practices).
A standard calibration of a USB datalogger will typically cost 70-90€ per unit. This is an annual spend that is often overlooked when different solutions are compared. The process can take up to 4-8 days during which customers have to arrange alternative solutions, e.g. by having spare data loggers in place.
Eupry relies on a subscription-based concept where Eupry replace data loggers with new, calibrated loggers once a year. This annual service is included in the premium and standard subscription fee. At the standard subscription it is limited to three dataloggers per year.
Furthermore, Eupry’s data loggers are calibrated in a state-of-the art calibration laboratory using systematic and validated procedures. The laboratory is accredited according to the internationally recognized ISO / IEC 17025 standard for calibration laboratories, which is recognized by almost all european countries. Eupry can guarantee highly accurate calibrations, as well as an exceptional level of expertise which is ensured by regular inspections performed by the approved accreditation body, DANAK.
