Onset Introduces Intrinsically Safe Temperature Logger

StowAway-IS Temp data loggerThe StowAway-IS Temp data logger is rated intrinsically safe for recording temperatures in hazardous locations. Its small size, wide temperature range and splash-proof design make it ideal for deployment in harsh industrial environments.

The StowAway-IS Temp carries the Intrinsically Safe Rating for use in areas where there are potentially explosive concentrations of gas (Class I) or dust (Class 2), either continuously (Division I) or intermittently (Division 2). It specifically covers gases in groups A-G, and dusts in groups A-D, F & G. The StowAway-IS Temp has been tested to NEMA 6P (IP67), but is not intended for extended deployment in water or epoxy-permeating vapors.

Convenient Data Offload with Optic Shuttle The optional pocket-sized Optic Shuttle provides a convenient way to readout and relaunch the StowAway-IS Temp in the field. The Optic Shuttle with the StowAway-IS Coupler also allows for triggered start on location.  The StowAway-IS Temp will begin shipping in late September.
