What measurements does this data logger support?

The MX2302A data logger supports the following measurements: Relative Humidity and Temperature


Temperature Sensor

Range     MX2301A and MX2305 internal sensors: -40 to 70°C (-40 to 158°F)

MX2302A external temperature sensor: -40 to 70°C (-40 to 158°F)

MX2303 and MX2304 external sensors: -40 to 100°C (-40 to 212°F), with tip and cable immersion in fresh water up to 50°C (122°F) for one year

Accuracy       ±0.25°C from -40 to 0°C (±0.45 from -40 to 32°F)

RH Sensor (MX2301A, MX2302A only)

Range     0 to 100% RH, -40° to 70°C (-40° to 158°F); exposure to conditions below -20°C (-4°F) or above 95% RH may temporarily increase the maximum RH sensor error by an additional 1%

Accuracy    ±2.5% from 10% to 90% (typical) to a maximum of ±3.5% including hysteresis at 25°C (77°F); below 10% RH and above 90% RH ±5% typical

Resolution     0.01%

Drift     <1% per year typical

Memory       128 KB (63,488 measurements, maximum)

Response Time: Temperature (typical, to 90% of change)     External sensor

Without Solar Radiation Shield     3 minutes, 45 seconds in air moving 1 m/sec

With RS1/M-RSA Solar Radiation Shield     7 minutes, 45 seconds in air moving 1 m/sec

With RS3-B Solar Radiation Shield      6 minutes, 30 seconds in air moving 1 m/sec

Response Time: RH (typical, to 90% of change)         External sensor

Without Solar Radiation Shield     15 seconds in air moving 1 m/sec

Transmission Range     Approximately 30.5 m (100 ft) line-of-sight

Wireless Data Standard     Bluetooth Smart (Bluetooth Low Energy, Bluetooth 4.0)

Logger Operating Range     -40° to 70°C (-40° to 158°F)

Logging Rate            1 second to 18 hours

Logging Modes     Fixed interval (normal, statistics) or burst

Memory Modes     Wrap when full or stop when full

Start Modes     Immediate, push button, date & time, or next interval

Stop Modes     When memory full, push button, date & time, or after a set logging period

Time Accuracy     ±1 minute per month 0° to 50°C (32° to 122°F)

Battery Type      2/3 AA 3.6 Volt lithium, user replaceable

Battery Life     2 years, typical with logging interval of 1 minute and Power Saving Mode disabled; 5 years, typical with logging interval of 1 minute and Power Saving Mode enabled. Faster logging intervals and statistics sampling intervals, burst logging, remaining connected with the app, excessive downloads, and paging may impact battery life.
