CALSoft Software

The CALSoft™ software was designed by TechniCAL specifically for Process Authorities in the retorted canned foods industry. CALSoft works with our CALPlex datalogger to collect heat penetration or temperature distribution test data. CALSoft uses the Ball Formula for establishing thermal process scheudles and evaluating process deviations.

Real Time Data Collection

Real Time Data Collection

CALSoft communicates directly with the CALPlex datalogger so that you can collect up to 32 channels of data. Using CALSoft's collect module, you can see your temperatures and accumulated lethality values in real-time during the test. View the data using optional layouts such as spreadsheet, bar graph, or time/temperature graph.

Import Data

If you use wireless dataloggers or a different wired datalogger system, you can import those files directly into CALSoft. Export your data to an Excel of CSV format, then simply import or cut-and-paste your data into CALSoft. Once your data is converted to CALSoft format, it can be further evaluated using the powerful tools in CALSoft.
