Bluetooth Temperature Logger Protects Magna Carta

Market: Building Performance
Organization: Salisbury Cathedral, Britain
Challenge: Protecting and preserving historic document on display
Originally issued by England’s King John in June 1215 to prevent civil war between the king and his barons, the Magna Carta is a world-famous symbol of justice, fairness, and human rights. Having inspired and encouraged movements for freedom and constitutional government for hundreds of years, the four remaining copies have been awarded ‘Memory of the World’ status by the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).

The best-surviving copy of the Magna Carta, currently on exhibition in Britain’s Salisbury Cathedral to commemorate the document’s 800-year anniversary, is stored in a glass display case along with an Onset HOBO MX1101 Bluetooth Temperature/Relative Humidity data logger.

“Preserving the text is of paramount importance,” said Emily Naish, Archivist at Salisbury Cathedral. “Excessive humidity can cause parchment to buckle as it tries to revert to its natural shape. The parchment can expand while the ink remains static, causing ink to lift from the text. As the room in which the Magna Carta is displayed has large glass windows, it is prone to these kinds of damaging fluctuations in humidity.”

Because the display case is sealed and protected by alarm systems, there was no way to constantly monitor temperature and humidity without going through the time-consuming and complicated process of switching off the alarms and accessing the case.

To address this issue, the Cathedral’s exhibition team installed the HOBO MX1101 data logger, purchased through Onset’s UK distributor, Tempcon Instrumentation Limited. The self-contained wireless data logger, which works with Onset’s free HOBOmobile™ app for logger setup and data management, enables staff to use a smart phone or tablet to access the environmental data at any time from a distance up to 100 feet, without having to open the display case – making the HOBO MX1101 the perfect choice for use in the restricted-access conditions of the Cathedral.

“The HOBO MX1101 is an ideal solution for us to protect such an important historical artifact as the Magna Carta,” said Naish. “It’s great that I can check the current conditions at a glance, and have the ability to access historical data without interfering with the exhibit.”

What’s a datalogger?

In today’s data-driven world of satellite uplinks, wireless networks, and the Internet, it is common to hear the terms “data logging” and “data loggers” and not really have a firm grasp of what they are.

Most people have a vague idea that data logging involves electronically collecting information about the status of something in the environment, such as temperature, relative humidity, or energy use.

They’re right, but that’s just a small view of what data logging is. In the fields of building performance and environmental research, everyone seems to be using data loggers. But what are they, and why are they useful?

Onset/Hobo the world’s leading manufacturer of dataloggers, has prepared this primer to the world of dataloggers, giving you a straight forward overview of this fascinating area of measurement science!

Instructors: Bill Spohn & Rhett Major

more info contact:

4 BPI CEU’s have been approved for this course.

The course will cover methods to test residential AC systems for their relative efficiency (both unit and total system efficiency) with out the need to attach pressure gauges to the refrigerant lines.

Using simple techniques, and some more complex, with a variety of tools, we will explore the options of testing system airflow, total external static pressure, and dry bulb and wet bulb temperature changes to determine if air conditioners are operating within normal parameters, or should be referred for service.

The course will include both classroom training on the basics of the refrigeration cycle, airflow testing methods, and Enthalpy change, and will include hands on testing of an air conditioning system to measure airflow, and both sensible and latent heat change.

Written Handouts from Tru Tech Tools(AC Performance worksheet, Enthalpy Tables, etc.), will help provide the basis for our testing.

FEES: DEAWP current members:$195.00,   Non-member:$245.00 (Ask about membership options)
