Hanwell’s little wonder could save precious artefacts from untold damage

Hanwell’s little wonder could save precious artefacts from untold damage


In high relative humidity conditions insects and moulds thrive and reproduce, metals corrode, dyes and textiles fade and deteriorate more quickly, organic materials such as wood and leather swell or change shape, and gelatine emulsions and adhesives become sticky.

Temperature and humidity levels need to be monitored in order to control these effects within an environment.

The RF Bug has been specifically designed with size in mind for museums and galleries to monitor temperature and humidity parameters within confined spaces either within cabinets or behind paintings.

Benefits:

  • Slimline casing for discrete monitoring
  • Provides ongoing record of Temperature and Relative Humidity
  • Identifies potential problem areas before permanent damage occurs
  • Real-time and historical analysis of data
  • Easy installation
  • Non-intrusive direct assessment of damage can be made
  • RFBug can be easily integrated into an existing  Hanwell system.

Product Information:

  • Hanwell Instruments have designed this product specifically to cater for the need for discrete monitoring with its slim line case. The case does not have an LCD display but transmits data directly to a local PC for collection and analysis, providing users with complete control without intrusion upon an exhibition.

This provides users with the tools to identify when temperature and humidity levels are unacceptable and attention is required.

The new RFBug is designed to fit in small areas where temperature and humidity control is required to be unobtrusive.

The RFBug can be easily integrated into an existing Hanwell system and monitored along-side other parameters including Dust and Light/UV.
