HOBO Pendant® Temperature/Light 8K Data Logger

SKU: UA-002-08


This HOBO Pendant® data logger is a miniature, waterproof two-channel temperature and relative light level data logger. The 8K model comes at a great value and is suitable for indoor, outdoor, and underwater applications. This logger holds approximately 6.5K of 10-bit readings. Use a solar radiation shield for accurate temperature measurement in sunlight.See RS1 Solar Radiation Shield (assembly required) and M-RSA (pre-assembled) Solar Radiation Shield. Note that using a solar radiation shield prevents the use of the light senso

Highlighted Features

  • Low-cost temperature with alarm indication or light intensity
  • Waterproof housing for wet or underwater use
  • Data readout in less than 30 seconds via fast Optic USB interface
