New WiFi monitoring system for museums, archives, galleries and libraries

Climate monitoring in museums

Each person has his/her own personal feel-good temperature – and most objects in museums and archives do too. But unlike us, paintings, sculptures or antique books cannot adapt, and always depend on establishment of the appropriate ambient climate.

The monitoring system testo 160 supports you in protecting works of art from mould, bleaching, corrosion or distortion, comprehensively and at the same time unobtrusively.
