There are a series of straightforward steps to ensure you select
the correct Tinytag for your application:
What do you need to measure?
First and foremost, which environmental parameter/s do you need
to measure? - temperature/humidity/power usage/CO2 etc. Dual
channel loggers monitoring both temperature and RH are available if
What ranges need to be monitored?
Loggers differ in their monitoring capabilities, so make sure
the logger's range fits the conditions experienced in your
Which environment/conditions will your logger be exposed
Choose the correct unit for the conditions. Tinytags are
available in a choice of enclosures, from basic devices for indoor
building monitoring, to robust, dustproof and waterproof units
designed to withstand the harshest industrial processes and for use
Do you need a logger with a probe?
Data loggers with probes are available to monitor applications
experiencing extremes (both low and high) of temperature, or to
reach awkward places such as pipework that a logger cannot reach.
The thermocouple data logger is also popular for many process and
industrial applications, as a fast-response, low-cost solution.
Do you need remote access to your data?
Consider radio or LAN data loggers which
collect data automatically for immediate viewing by any permitted
user in a LAN, or remotely over the internet. With no need to
manually download data, they are ideal for monitoring in larger
premises or those with many monitoring points, both indoors and
