Environmental Monitoring for Museums and Archives

Preserving exhibits from damage is undoubtedly the number one priority for museums. The importance of this is further increased because of the liability obligation towards owners of priceless artefacts and loaned exhibits. Since many of these are climate-sensitive, it is incredibly important to monitor environmental conditions such as air temperature and humidity. This is no easy feat however, because of seasonal climate fluctuations and factors like number of visitors etc. Therefore continuous indoor climate monitoring is a necessity.

Testo help museums ensure exhibits are properly maintained. Monitoring factors such as temperature, humidity, LUX, shock and air quality is key for preservation. Our museum climate monitoring solution will alert you on conditions leading to growth of mold or excessive dryness causing wood cracks or paper preservation issues. You will have a permanent record of storage or shipment conditions and easy access to your monitoring data. It also provides time logs at user-selected intervals with alarm settings if the pre-set points are crossed.
