Product Description

For areas such as schools and offices, the testo 160 IAQ Wi-Fi data logger is a necessary tool for monitoring and recording indoor air quality.  The quality of indoor air has a major influence on people's health and productivity.  High CO2 levels in indoor air can lead to fatigue and a lack of concentration.  The testo 160 IAQ Wi-Fi data logger helps optimize indoor air quality by providing reliable records and air quality warnings.

Monitoring temperature, humidity, CO2, and atmospheric pressure with the testo 160 IAQ Wi-Fi data logger
The easy to use testo 160 IAQ Wi-Fi data logger is ideal for monitoring indoor air quality.  Using internal sensors for temperature, humidity, CO2, and atmospheric pressure, the testo 160 IAQ accurately determines the air conditions of a monitored area.
The logger data is accessible at any time from any browser enabled device, such as a smart phone, tablet, or a PC or Mac.

The testo 160 IAQ Wi-Fi data logger – unobtrusive and easy to hide
The testo 160 IAQ logger was made small, about 3.3 x 4.6 x 1.26 inches. To make it easy to conceal, an optional paintable deco cover is available to help the logger blend in with its surroundings.

A perfect network appliance – uses an existing Wi-Fi network to send data to the testo Cloud
The testo Cloud is a central data repository for all of your testo 160 data loggers.  On your testo Cloud account, you can configure data loggers and set alarm points, designate authorized users, and set recipients for alarms and monitoring reports.
To start, register at www.museum.saveris.net to gain access to your account.  To register you can use a browser, or our Saveris 2 phone app for iOS or Android.
Depending on your needs, you can select between the free Basic or subscription based Advanced functionalities as needed, to create 10 user accounts, or add text messaging of alarms, for example.
 
Additional functionality of the testo 160 IAQ Wi-Fi data logger
The logger comes with a large internal memory for 40,000 measurement values to protect your data, in case of a blackout or Wi-Fi network issues.  The logger housing has IP20 moisture protection, and uses readily available, standard alkaline batteries.  The batteries are monitored, and should last for about 12 months.   The logger can also be powered by an external USB power supply, and in such a case, the batteries will be used only during a loss of power.

Monitoring the microclimate in a display cabinet

Reliable monitoring of ambient conditions in a display cabinet plays a decisive role in early warnings of potential problems.  An unstable microclimate in a display cabinet can result in artwork damage.  A Wi-Fi data logger from the testo 160 family will detect when preset alarm points are crossed, and it will send notifications.  This small Wi-Fi data logger can also be placed inside the base of a display cabinet, with a small external probe hidden in proximity to the displayed object.

Checking and documenting ambient conditions in an exhibit room

Paintings, sculptures, and other displayed items may be damaged by an unsuitable exhibit room climate.  Microcracks and fissures, which gradually grow larger, are the consequences of an unsuitable or highly fluctuating ambient climate.  With the testo 160 series Wi-Fi data loggers, you can always monitor the key parameters of temperature and relative humidity.  As loan items are often exhibited, loan agreements often require documentation of an exhibit’s ambient environment.  The testo Cloud data storage can allow lenders to view current climate conditions at any time.  Testo 160 loggers can be paired with optional paintable covers, to allow for concealment within an exhibit space.

Good ambient conditions inside a storage depot

Museums generally only exhibit a small portion of their objects.  As the majority of a museum's inventory is in storage, reliable monitoring of ambient storage conditions is important, as well.  Constant and suitable ambient conditions are important for slowing the natural aging processes of museum objects.  A Wi-Fi data logger from the testo 160 series helps you monitor and collect data, and document the storage conditions of your collections.
