MilkSure continuously takes snapshots of the operational data and records the following:
- Date and Time
- Milk-in temperature
- Vat temperature
- Milking start and finish times¹.
¹ Requires external auxiliary input.
MilkSure records when external input indicates when milking has commenced or a temperature changes more than 1 degree C.
If there is no change, MilkSure will record once every 15 minutes.
Data is recorded on a USB memory stick plugged in to the front of the MilkSure unit – If the USB memory stick has been removed, the data will be recorded to the internal memory*.
The data is stored in a .CSV file, which is readily viewable as text or opened by any Spread-Sheet app such as Microsoft Excel. Records are appended chronologically with the newest records at the bottom of the file.
*The backlog of data is automatically moved to the USB memory stick, from the internal memory, as soon as the USB is plugged in again. Because there is a limit to the internal memory (at most 2 weeks worth of recording) – it is important the USB device is plugged back in to the front of the MilkSure unit as soon as possible to prevent possible loss of data.
