A small, powerful and colourful climate sensor has been introduced by Molex subsidiary Sensorcon, which can provide workers in sensitive or harsh environments a clear understanding of environmental conditions.
The Climate Logger is offered in three different models which can measure light, temperature, pressure and humidity across a wide spectrum of facilities—from pharmaceutical plants and other manufacturing facilities to oil refineries and agricultural fields. It attaches magnetically to any metal surface and can immediately begin collecting data, which then can be uploaded to Microsoft Windows Vista, 7, 8, or 10 via a USB connection. Free software is available to import and graph the data to the Windows program.
“Due to growing industry demands and increasing climate changes, our engineers have developed a tool that is designed with next-generation technology that allows companies to capture valuable information needed to efficiently and cost-effectively assess their environmental needs,” said Calen Dembitsky, marketing manager, Sensorcon, a Molex Company. “We are committed to supplying the tools to finding the valuable data companies need to move forward.”
The specifications of the Climate Logger sensors include:
The Climate Logger’s other, visible, feature is that it is available in seven bright colours - green, blue, white, yellow, pink, black and orange. This makes the Logger easy to spot when the data needs to be retrieved or the sensor needs to be moved to another location.
