Automatic Data Upload to the Cloud



This function enables TR-7wb/nw series loggers to automatically upload recorded data to "T&D WebStorage Service" where uploaded data is available for viewing and

settings can also be changed.

See reverse side.

The following procedure has been written assuming the use of "T&D WebStorage Service" with TR-7wb/nw series loggers. Please read the

to a smartphone or tablet via

"T&D WebStorage Service" License Agreement carefully before making settings. Making Auto-upload Settings indicates your acceptance of this Agreement.

• This procedure requires Internet access via wireless or wired LAN.

• When the storage period in "T&D WebStorage Service" is exceeded, old data will be

deleted. Please refer to "T&D WebStorage Service" License Agreement for the service

Ref: Auto-Upload Intervals & Corresponding Estimated Battery Life

In general, the shorter the upload interval, the shorter the battery life.







• All estimates are based on operations carried out with a new battery and are in no way

a guarantee of actual battery life.

• When Auto-upload is used frequently on TR-71wb/71nw, the measurement of the

internal sensor may rise by around 0.3°C.
