Cobalt 2 modules are available with a variety of different sensors to cover all your monitoring needs.

Cobalt 2 wireless temperature data loggers are easy to install and set up using the ThermoServer / ThermoClient software suite.

Modules collect data at programmable intervals, storing it first internally and then uploading readings and other information wirelessly to your ThermoServer computer .

Authorized users can access sensor readings at any time using the ThermoClient application for Windows.

Data can also be made available on smartphones and tablets by synchronizing with the OCEACloud platform (optional).

In case of excursions or technical issues, alerts are sent 24/7 via OCEASOFT’s robust alert platform  by e-mail, SMS/text message, or voice message.

Differential pressure sensor

Differential pressure data logger for measuring the relative pressure between two zones, one of which is considered the reference. The module is generally placed in the space where ambient pressure is considered as “normal”, and the tube on one of the module inputs measures the positive or negative pressure difference in another space. This enables you to monitor overpressure or underpressure conditions. The differential pressure sensor is particularly adapted for monitoring “clean” and “dirty” zones in laboratories.

Differential pressure range: -500 Pa to + 500 Pa (resolution 0.0625 Pa)

Complete compatibility: air, nitrogen; partial compatibility: O2

Supported overpressure: 1 bar
