-80°C Temperature Data Logger with External Thermistor Probe

Industry Leading Temperature Data Logger for Use in Dry Ice Cold Chain Distribution Applications

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX66960 is a temperature data logger that is ideally suited to monitor and log the ambient temperature of enclosures that use dry ice as a coolant. It consists of a precision logging module with a thermistor-based temperature probe that is permanently attached. In the application the temperature probe is inserted into the dry ice cooled area of a container and the logger module is placed in a container location isolated from the -78.5°C extremes created by the dry ice. An attached USB cable and connector provide the PC connection for setup of a logging mission and download of mission data.
