Whilst swings in temperature and humidity in normal environments may not be significant, in a museum they can be catastrophic. Exposure to extremes of heat, cold, dryness or humidity can cause textiles, canvas, wood and other materials to quickly deteriorate. Factor in a display case and there may be multiple environments in just one room. To support the preservation of exhibits and archives, museums have long measured temperature and humidity with data loggers and chart recorders. But although accurate, some of these solutions are bulky and expensive.
Lascar's solution? The EasyLog family of temperature and humidity data loggers. An inexpensive series of standalone USB, WiFi and Bluetooth-enabled sensors allowing discrete temperature and humidity monitoring in museums - locally, remotely and instantly.
