There are some things that most people are consistently concerned with monitoring – the weather, time, date, current temperature, and so forth. You would be hard-pressed to find a home without some sort of temperature and humidity monitor in use, even if it is just the HVAC thermostat. What you might not realize is that there are many industries which are not only curious about temperature and humidity, their success depends on keeping them monitored. Here are a few industries in which a temperature and humidity monitor would be an absolute necessity.
- Data Center– The server room of a data center must be protected from extreme heat and both too little and too much humidity. Using a temperature and humidity monitor provides instant notification if something goes wrong so that it can be resolved before equipment damage results.
- Pharmaceutical– The vast majority of medications and vaccines must be kept within an optimal temperature range to remain effective. From the production of the pharmaceuticals through shipping to pharmacies and distribution to the end consumer, there must be a cold chain in place to ensure temperatures and humidity levels are monitored and kept at optimal levels.
- Livestock Agriculture– Livestock is a huge industry in this country. Swine, cattle, poultry, and other livestock can be lost if environmental conditions are not monitored and kept within healthy ranges. A temperature and humidity monitor is often used to keep an eye on conditions of the livestock, as well as for the equipment needed to keep them healthy and productive.
- Greenhouse Agriculture– Plants are just as susceptible to temperature and humidity fluctuations as livestock. If a heater or fan fails, an entire greenhouse full of crops could be lost if a temperature and humidity monitor did not instantly alert someone in charge.
These are just a few of the industries that commonly use a temperature and humidity monitor. If your business can be adversely affected by high or low temperatures or humidity that is outside a certain range, you should give us a call at Global Sensors to learn how we can help you have peace of mind with a reliable and accurate temperature and humidity monitor.
