TEMPer USB Thermometer

TEMPer USB Thermometer (Image courtesy USBFever.com) By Andrew Liszewski

There are already USB GPS devices for tracking where you’ve been but here’s another device that will instead keep track of what the temperature was, if for some reason you need to know.

It’s capable of measuring a range from -20°C to 100°C or from -4°F to 212°F and the samples can be logged in a preset time interval from every second to every 12 hours. The data is recorded in a bundled simple spreadsheet application but it can easily be copied into Word, Excel or whatever database software you happen to prefer.

The TEMPer is available from USBFever for only $19.99.

    This is actually useful for folks who run remote datacenters and need to know if the heat’s building up. Environmental monitors usually cost a lot more than $20, so this migt be worthwhile.

    Why do they advertise the size of USB devices by showing them next to coins? Is there anybody who doesn’t know how big a male USB connector is?

  • Nabil

    The width of the plug is the same Mike (standard), however the back end always varies depending on the applications. Some sticks are longer and wider beyond the plug, so it helps to reference the actual size in most cases.

    I bought 2 of this devices. One of them already broken at delivery. The other works fine. The device driver works. In my case i want to use the system on a small system with low power consumption. So the dot.net framework was not so fine. Although the software is very awfull. No logging into file, no saving from propertys. And (it was a german dot.net and a german windows XP) half of the template is out of the window. And you cann´t change the windows size. I can not belive, that a company designs such a good device (if it works) and deliver it with such bad software.

    Hi Olaf,
    i wrote my own tool for the usb temper called utac. It’s also a .net application, but maybe this works better for you.

    Just take a look at: http://blog.n4rf.net/solutions/utac

    Hello Bof,
    I downloaded the software already. I´m gonna investigate in the near future. From your description, i guess, the software will be much better for my problem.

    I´m also looking forward to the next versions.
