New monitoring system for museums, archives, galleries and libraries

Monitoring system testo 160

For many museum visitors, the indoor climate is not noticeable as long as they feel comfortable, but for the great works of art, the right climate is a matter of long-term survival.

The testo 160 monitoring system will help you to manage prevention, to keep the artwork free of mold, discoloration, corrosion, delamination, cracking, or physical distortion.  The system easily blends in with the museum surrounding and delivers necessary data streams and alerts.

Your challenge


Works of art are very sensitive to fluctuations in the ambient conditions in the rooms in which they are exhibited or stored.

  • Monitor indoor climate, light exposure, and air quality where they have an influence on the condition of the artwork
  • Have the documentation of the indoor climate, and light exposure throughout the year
  • Be alerted to sudden climate changes so the corrective action can be taken
