The front page example tells the truck base that: On April 6, 2009, at 9.02am, the truck was travelling at 79 km/h at 18˚ (NNE). At 8.59am (the last time the recorder transferred data to the Euroscan server) the main freezer temperature was -22.2˚C, the return air temperature on the freezer was -17.7˚C, the #3 product probe was measuring 0.6˚C, the #4 probe was measuring 0.0˚C and the #5 probe was measuring 3.0˚C. The digital reading of 0001 indicates that the truck’s rear door has not been properly closed.
