MLV is designed to remove much of the manual labour associated with logger and environment validation. Key points are:
·Any mix of Temprecord logger variants or firmware revisions may be used, including Mon-T loggers.
·The loggers do not all need to be logging data with the same sample period.
·The loggers do not all need to be started together. MLV automatically time-aligns individual data files and any associated reference data.
·The loggers need not be stopped before data analysis can take place.
·Data from any arbitrary group of loggers can be processed.
·MLV does not require physical access to the loggers for analysis, only to the data files produced from them.
·No manual logging or retrieval of Hart reference data is required. MLV can log the meter output continuously and save the logged temperatures to a file.
·A reference is not required - the loggers can be checked against a constant value, against their collective mean, or against another single Temprecord logged data file.
·It is not necessary to interact with MLV between runs.
·Data analysis is more or less completely automatic.
·MLV incorporates a powerful project-based system that enables the user to save and quickly return to previous validation setups, and to quickly change settings and regenerate reports.
·Reports and plots are highly configurable.
·Optional username and password access control system
