The TruPoint Logger is designed to be placed on the ware to travel through the E-coat bath (and be removed before the curing ovens). It has a small LiPo battery that must be charged up before it is used.
Check Battery Condition/Wake Logger Up
Hold the unit horizontal with the Blue cap on the left and display screen facing upwards. Rotate the unit towards you 90 degrees and then back to horizontal. The unit should now be awake.
If the unit does not wake up or you shows the Low Battery display, remove the blue cap and charge the battery with the AC wall charger & micro USB cable. Allow 90 minutes to fully charge. You should see the Battery Ok display now.
Getting ready to Run
If there is data from a previous run, this data will be shown twice. The first tilt is the same as to wake up (the screen will change to a “Tilt x 1” icon - this way you will know that the first tilt is successful), the second tilt is upright 90 degrees with the blue cap facing upward then brought back to horizontal. You have 2 seconds to make the second tilt. Connect USB cable or press MCLR button to ‘Un Arm’ the unit.
A good location for the unit is on the front bumper support (so the blue cap is pointing in the direction of travel) for a car body on a convoy conveyor & Ro-Dip conveyor systems. For a Hoist system the unit can be placed just about anywhere and in orientation.
Making the Data Run
The unit will not turn off unless it runs Low Batt or the USB cable is connected. Place on a flat portion of the ware, away from a hole.
After the Run
Remove the logger before the cure ovens and hold steady until you are ready to review data. Good idea is to place the magnet on a steel surface and then review the data with holding it in your hand. If you hold in in your hand you may inadvertently Arm the unit and then the run data will be erased since the unit thinks you want to make another data run.
Ready To Arm
Viewing the Data
Wake the unit to show the data in the following sequence: Temp, DC V, AC V, # Seconds recorded; and # of Volts x Seconds.
After the Run
Clean the unit with IPA only. Make sure to clean the magnet and the brass tip before the next run.

How to Perform 9V Battery Test
Arm the unit. Take the 9V battery and battery cable leads, connect the side of the leads to the top of the battery. Please note touching both cable leads will short 9V battery. Observe the polarity. Next attach the black lead to the magnet. Then attach the red lead to the brass sensor tip for approximately 10 seconds. The logging icon will appear. Disconnect leads and display icons will scroll through.
Performing 9V battery test with the anodic model is similiar to cathodic with the exception that cable leads are reversed. Black lead will attach to brass sensor tip with red lead being grounded on magnet. Logging icon will appear and data will commence logging. Disconnecting leads will display results. Please note touching both cable leads together will short the 9V battery.
