Select from six different types of systems
From high end precision data loggers to the well priced transit logger. From sterilization process monitoring to complex central, fail-safe monitoring systems. Measure temperature, humidity, pressure, light, acceleration or any other desired parameter. Choose between radio, LAN, W-LAN or PoE.

Typical applications:
Monitoring of sterilization processes in pharmaceutical and food industries. Central, fail-safe monitoring with alarm capability of such critical areas as pharmaceutical or aerospace industries. Cold-chain monitoring including dry-ice transport. General monitoring of warehouses, refrigeration and freezer units, incubators, climate chambers and others. Shock monitoring of expensive and sensitive goods. Vibration measurements and motion profiling of a variety of objects, robust long-term outdoor measurements, and much more.

Please do not hesitate to talk to us! We are happy to discuss your specific application with you and recommend a solution fit for purpose.
