Back of a Saga logger with CMS serial ID number
Serial ID

Each serial ID starts with "CMS" (Controlant identifier) followed by "30", which is used to identify Saga loggers. The last six characters are based on the hexadecimal numeral system that uses decimal numbers (0–9) and six letters: A, B, C, D, E, and F. The numbering happens in sequential order; the first device of each type is given a start number, and the numbering continues for the next in ascending numerical order.

Start button

Stop button

There are two buttons on the device located under the display. The device only acknowledges a button press after you hold the button for 5-8 seconds. This delay is to prevent accidental button pressing during a shipment.

Tip

We recommend pushing the button for 5-8 seconds.

The action is invalid (i.e., it does not get registered in the SCM system) if you keep pressing the start button or the stop button for more than 12 seconds (more than 20 seconds on firmware 2.5.0 and higher) or less than 3 seconds.

Start or stop a shipment using the buttons
  1. Press and hold the start button/stop button for 5-8 seconds to activate/deactivate the device.

  2. The shipment LED controlant saga logger shipment ledlights up when the device registers the button press as valid and remains on for 3 seconds. The lit-up LED light means that you can release the button.

Tip

We recommend pushing the button for 5-8 seconds.

The action is invalid (i.e., it does not get registered in the SCM system) if you keep pressing the start button or the stop button for more than 12 seconds (more than 20 seconds on firmware 2.5.0 and higher) or less than 3 seconds.

Caution

You should only press the start button or the stop button once every 60 seconds. If you press the buttons more than once within a minute, only the first button press is valid (i.e., the LED will not turn on for 3 seconds).

The device wakes up when you press a button

When you press a button, the device wakes up. It attempts to connect to the Controlant cloud-enabled Supply Chain Monitoring (SCM) system.

You can only trigger a "button press" wake-up once every 30 minutes.

The Saga logger has two LED indicators on the right side of the display.

The behavior of the shipment LED and the alarm LED depends on the shipment status. These LEDs react to a press of the start button or the stop button.
