Using third-party PT100 and PT1000 probes with Tinytag data loggers
Tinytag data loggers can be used with third-party PT100 and PT1000 probes. Information on how to connect third-party probes to your Tinytag data logger can be found in this article.
We supply a range of PT100 and PT1000 probes for use with Tinytag data loggers, but third-party probes can be used with Tinytags if required.
We recommend the use of 3-wire, class A sensors.
2-wire and 4-wire sensors can be used, but accuracy is reduced when 2-wire sensors are used and Tinytag data loggers will not read the fourth wire of 4-wire sensors.
To connect your probe to a Tinytag data logger, you will need an ACS-9703 5-pin plug.
Please refer to the ACS-9703 datasheet attached to this page (below) for wiring instructions for 2, 3 and 4-wire PT100 and PT1000 sensors (see Connection Information 2).

Problems connecting to my data logger
Tinytag Explorer will automatically detect data loggers when they are started or downloaded. If you are having trouble connecting your data logger to the software, your logger's battery may have run flat, you may be running an older version of Tinytag Explorer or the USB cable/pad drivers may not have installed correctly.
