With more memory than the original StowAway TidbiT logger, the rugged TidbiT v2 Temp Logger is waterproof to 300 m (1000 ft) and is equipped with an optic interface for data offload in the field.
The tiny TidbiT v2 Temp Logger has 12-bit resolution and a precision sensor for ±0.2°C accuracy over a wide temperature range. This new v2 version has more memory than the original StowAway TidbiT logger and communicates through a convenient Optic USB Base Station or HOBO Waterproof Shuttle. The rugged TidbiT v2 Temp Logger is waterproof to 300 m (1000 ft) and is equipped with an optic interface for data offload in the field, even when the logger is wet.
Note: The v2 (orange) TidbiT replaces the v1 Tidbit which was yellow. The v1 Tidbit is still available as a special order. The Optic Shuttle DTA128B is no longer available.

NOTE: Using TidbiT v2 Temp loggers in wet environments (>90% RH) over 30°C for extended periods of more than 8 weeks cumulative may lead to premature failure. For applications over 30°C, use the HOBO Water Temp Pro v2 data logger. For Onset's lowest cost underwater temperature monitoring solutions, see the HOBO Pendant Temp data logger. For depths greater than 300 m see the HOBO Stainless Temp data logger.
HOBOware software and an Optic USB Base Station with Coupler are required for operation of the TidbiT v2. The HOBO Waterproof Shuttle can also be used as a base station.
* Not for prolonged exposure to chlorinated water.
** The HOBO Waterproof Shuttle can also be used as a base station.
