Product Description

The testo 160 E belongs to the testo 160 data logger range, which was developed especially for the particular requirements in museums. Thanks to versatile options for combinations of integrated sensors and probes, any monitoring situation, from exhibitions and storage right through to transportation of collection items, is covered.
Operation and programming of the data logger is simple and carried out directly via the Testo Cloud.

Monitoring temperature, humidity, lux and UV radiation with WiFi data logger testo 160 E

The easy-to-use WiFi data logger testo 160 E adapts perfectly to your climate monitoring requirements. It offers 2 connection options for probes (please order separately) for temperature, humidity, lux or lux and UV radiation.

Measurement data is stored by the data logger via your WLAN directly to the Testo Cloud. If limit values are exceeded, you will be notified immediately by email or (optionally) SMS thanks to the alarm function. You can access all measuring values and analysis functions at any time and from anywhere with an internet-capable smartphone, tablet or PC.

The WiFi data logger testo 160 E – adaptable and discreet

The small dimensions of the testo 160 E (64 x 76 x 22 mm) and its simple design enable it to be positioned easily in an exhibition or display cabinet. In conjunction with the optionally available customisable deco-cover (see accessories), the data logger can be adapted to blend in with the surroundings and therefore remains inconspicuous. This means your exhibits will always be the focus.

Perfectly networked: with the WiFi data logger testo 160 E and the Testo Cloud

The Testo Cloud is the core operating element of the testo 160 data logger range. You can use the testo 160 E to store your measurement data in the Testo Cloud via an available WLAN. Here you can configure your WiFi data loggers, set limit value alarms and analyze your measurement data.

Installing the system is simple and can be carried out via a browser.

Depending on the desired range of functions, you have a choice between the free Basic and more extensive Advanced functionality for use of the Testo Cloud. You can use the Advanced functionality, for example, to create up to 10 users per account or set an SMS alarm if limit values are exceeded.

Areas of application for the WiFi data logger testo 160 E: museums, archives and storage depots

Reliably measure the temperature and humidity, lux and UV radiation in the display cabinet or exhibition room at all times. The WiFi data logger can be combined with separately available connectable probes to suit your monitoring requirements. The testo 160 E can be easily positioned even in small display cabinets, as it is ideal for installation in the cabinet base. The professional WiFi data logger testo 160 E is optimised for applications relating to the monitoring of ambient conditions in museums, galleries or other exhibition venues. It can be used to reliably protect your sensitive and valuable exhibits against damage.

Further advantages and functions of the WiFi data logger testo 160 E

The internal data store capacity of the WiFi data logger is 40,000 measuring values, and the housing is protected according to IP20. The standard batteries have a lifetime of 12 months and can be replaced at any time by users. Alternatively, the data logger can also be operated without batteries using a mains unit (please order separately) via the USB interface provided.

Monitoring the micro-climate in a display cabinet 

Reliable monitoring of ambient conditions in a display cabinet plays a decisive role in protecting valuable and sensitive exhibits. An unstable micro-climate in the display cabinet can result in damage to the objects. A WiFi data logger in the testo 160 range detects when limit values are critically exceeded and ensures the safety of your museum objects through its alarm function. This small WiFi data logger can also be placed discreetly in a display cabinet. 

Protecting museum objects through light and climate measurements 

Unsuitable light conditions, as well as the wrong indoor climate, pose a huge risk to exhibition objects. They accelerate natural ageing processes and cause irreparable micro-cracks and discolouration. Prevent exhibits from losing their value and preserve cultural heritage with a WiFi data logger from the testo 160 series. Use the WiFi data logger to monitor humidity and temperature, and check lux and UV radiation. In this way, you can protect your museum objects against climate-related damage and discolouration.
