What can I record with this datalogger?
Record up to a year’s worth of data about the temperature. This datalogger (161-357) can store 8,192 pieces of data and can be set to record from once per second to once per hour. Record experiments or set up a long term study into temperature changes. Detect temperatures from -20°C to 60°C with a resolution of 0.1°C for accurate and precise information. You can even use the temperate datalogger to record outside or underwater in a sealed container.

How does the datalogger work?
All the components for the datalogger are housed inside its plastic casing including the sensor, memory and battery - there’s no need for any wires or extra hardware. The device comes in the form of a USB stick so retrieving your data is as simple as plugging into your PC or laptop’s USB socket. There is free downloadable software available to program the data recorder which is simple and easy to do. You can optionally set up a start date and time to start recording and chose from looped recording which overwrites the oldest data first or single which records until it’s full then stops. The datalogger uses a CR1220 battery that can be replaced (See our range here) and is compatible with Windows Vista or later.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yes, you could build your own with an Adrinuo kit, but I decided to try them out with my kids + relations before getting complicated. Great for developing understanding of why data is useful. BTY we had them recording up to 90'C with no problems. Great educational product..
