Tinytag temperature data loggers come in a number of different case styles with different features to suit a variety of applications. They range from basic loggers designed to record temperature in product shipments or within buildings, to robust, waterproof devices that can be used for outdoor environmental monitoring including underwater, and in industrial applications. Data loggers with displays can also be supplied, and specialist ATEX validated units for recording conditions in intrinsically safe areas are also available. Where data loggers cannot be placed directly into an application, a wide variety of probes are available to withstand extremes of temperature such as those in ovens and cryogenic monitoring, and specific conditions such as pipework temperatures or compost. Whatever your application, location or the environmental conditions, Tinytag data loggers will provide the solution.

TINYTAG DATA LOGGERS – AL THIKA PACKAGING LLC
Al Thika Packaging is the exclusive distributor of Tinytag company in the Middle East. Since 1994 till now Al Thika has been providing Gemini datalogger for robust environmental monitoring solutions for food, non-food & beverages industries in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, Fujairah, Ras Al Khaimah, Ajman, Umm Al Quwain, Al Ain – UAE, Saudi Arabia, Muscat, Oman, Kuwait, Bahrain and the many other Gulf countries.
The underwater data loggers record seawater temperature data for a variety of scientific research studies in UK waters and further afield.
Tritonia Scientific Ltd. provides specialist diving support for underwater scientific research projects, either university-based programmes or in support of government agency science. Tritonia has used Aquatic 2 Tinytag data loggers for many years, using divers to deploy and retrieve these loggers as it removes the need for buoyed lines rising to the surface which could be pulled up or run over by mistake.
The recorded data has been used in numerous studies across a number of scientific disciplines. Aquatic temperature data is important for understanding how ecosystems function and the long-term consequences of anthropogenic drivers, for example, the steady rise in greenhouse gas emissions, and dynamic changes in temperatures. The monitoring takes place over a number of time phases and at different depths depending on the nature of the study, but some of the studies are now yielding long-term time series of over 20 years.
Typically the data loggers are used to verify seawater temperature proxies. An example of this is the long-lived molluscArctica islandica which is used by scientists to generate time-series using their growth rings. Tritonia’s temperature datasets can be used to match the modern growth rings against known temperatures. Another use is to deploy the loggers over a latitudinal range to generate temperature profiles against which scientists can compare the growth rates of subtidal kelp species in order to predict what the future impacts may be of warmer seas around the UK.
The data loggers monitor the changes in seawater temperatures at different depths, typically 10, 20 and 30 metres. Monitoring intervals on the long-term time series are set to either 10 or 12 minutes. Most of the data loggers used on the long-term monitoring have been deployed off the west coast of Scotland, but they have also been used on short-term experiments in the tropics and in both Polar Regions. The loggers are deployed in pairs just in case of any losses or failures.
Martin Sayer is Tritonia’s Managing Director and has used Tinytags since the mid-1990s when they were the first product that provided the capability of long-term temperature monitoring at low costs. He comments, “We have simply stayed with the product because of its reliability. The latest versions are easy to use and are very resistant to being used in such a challenging environment. They provide a reliable and cost-effective way of generating high quality subtidal temperature datasets.”
