Museums that house important specimens, artifacts, and collections of works of art need to exercise extreme vigilance for each object’s protection and continued care. In the preservation of historical materials, sustaining a stable interior climate is necessary for proper maintenance.
Temperature and relative humidity (RH) typically need to be closely controlled and kept at suitable levels. Unfavourable environmental conditions can potentially harm artifacts and cause deterioration.
Onset HOBO data loggers can help curators and archivists maintain a suitable environment for artwork and culturally-significant pieces while helping to balance the preservation of these objects with occupant comfort.
The HOBO MX1104 multi-channel data logger measures and transmits temperature, relative humidity, and light intensity data wirelessly. It also includes an external analogue input to attach a variety of additional sensors.
