Pico Technology

has announced the immediate availability of the HumidiProbe, a combined environmental probe, analogue-to-digital converter and data logger.

HumidiProbe plugs in to the USB port to give instant, highly accurate measurements of temperature and humidity. Up to 4 HumidiProbes can be connected to one PC, allowing accurate simultaneous monitoring of the temperature and humidity in multiple locations.

HumidiProbe can measure temperatures over the range 0 degrees C to +70 degrees C with an accuracy of +/-0.5 degrees C, a resolution of 0.01 degrees C and a response time of 5 to 30 seconds.

It measures relative humidity over the range 0% to 100% with an accuracy of +/-2%, a resolution of 0.03% and a response time of four seconds. The conversion time for both sensors is two seconds. HumidiProbe is compatible with all USB 1.1 and USB 2.0 ports, making port selection and configuration automatic and reliable. There is no need for batteries or a separate power supply, as the probe takes its power from the USB port.

HumidiProbe is supplied with PicoLog software, which is a program used to collect, display and analyse data. Measurements can be viewed in graph, spreadsheet and text formats, saved to a file or replayed for off-line analysis.

In addition, software alarms can be configured to give a warning when either temperature or humidity measurements go out of a specified range. Free updates to the software are available on the company’s website.

HumidiProbe is available immediately direct from Pico Technology or one of its authorised distributors at a cost of £149 + VAT.
