†Specified range is narrower than nominal range due to precision calibration process. Using TidbiT Temp loggers in wet environments (>90% RH) over 86°F (30°C) for extended periods of more than 8 weeks cumulative may lead to premature failure. For applications over 30°C use the HOBO® Water Temp Pro v2.

Optical Interface for data transferThe HOBO Water Temp Pro v2 is durable with 12-bit resolution. Complete with a precision sensor for ±0.2°C accuracy, this logger measures temperatures between -40°C and 70°C (-40°F to 158°F) in air and up to 50°C (122°F) in water. Its waterproof, streamlined case allows for extended deployment in fresh or salt water. Moreover, the Water Temp Pro v2’s optical USB interface makes it possible  to offload data even while the logger is wet or underwater. A solar radiation shield is required to obtain accurate air temperature measurements in sunlight (RS1 Solar Radiation Shield, assembly required; or M-RSA pre-assembled Solar Radiation Shield).

A miniature, waterproof one-channel temperature data logger, this model is value-priced for short-term shipping applications or long-term deployment. Data logger alarm LEDs flash if temperatures have exceeded user-set levels and delay options, and provide visible verification that temperatures have been within the desired range throughout deployment. This 64K model stores approximately 52K of 10-bit temperature readings. For accurate temperature measurement in sunlight a solar radiation shield is required (RS1 Solar Radiation Shield, assembly required; M-RSA pre-assembled Solar Radiation Shield).
