New testo 160- Building Climate Monitoring System

Climate monitoring in museums


The monitoring system testo 160 measures, monitors and documents temperature, humidity, light intensity, UV radiation, CO2 concentration, atmospheric pressure, continuously, precisely and automatically. This serves ambient climate monitoring and  also preservation of valuable objects or systems.
The data loggers transfer the measurement values by wireless LAN to Testo Cloud. From there, they can be called up by PC/tablet/smartphone from any place with internet access. If individually defined upper or lower limit values are exceeded, an alarm is immediately provided by SMS and/or e-mail.

Unobtrusive and individual: The product design
The data loggers are specially designed such that they present themselves discreetly and inconspicuously. Thanks to the deco-cover, they also blend in with any surroundings. These optionally available housing covers can be individually painted or decorated. Just as the respective background requires.
