This is a small printing thermometer for delivery vans which can be used during transportation or similar circumstances to take a print out of recorded data of temperature.
As an example for transportation of medicine in a van, the driver can keep our iLog series of data logger inside the van. Upon delivery of the items, the driver can issue a print out of the entire recorded data to the customer without need of any computer.
