Dual-Channel Thermistor Probe WiFi Temps Logger

For High-Accuracy Measurement

emperature_dataloggerCHESTERLAND OH, USA — Lascar has just introduced the EL-WiFi-DTP+ Thermistor Probe Data Logger for high-accuracy temperature measurement.

Featuring Wireless connectivity to PC via WiFi and an integrated display, these temperature dataloggers send data online to the FilesThruTheAir Cloud Storage Service.

Lascar’s new EL-WiFi-DTP+ data logger measures the temperature of the environment in which the two external probes are placed, recording temperature at a measurement range from -40 to +125 °C (-40 to +257 °F).

This high-accuracy sensor is typically accurate to ±0.2 °C (for the rnge: -15 °C to +80 °C). A calibration certificate is also available.

The unit is freestanding, but can be attached to a wall or surface using the bracket provided.
