In what environment does this data logger operate?
This data logger operates in indoor, outdoor and underwater environments.
What measurements does this data logger support?
The MX2203 data logger supports the following measurements: Temperature and Water Temperature\
Temperature Sensor (MX2203)
MX2203: -20° to 70°C (-4° to 158°F) in air; -20° to 50°C (-4° to 122°F) in water
±0.25°C from -20° to 0°C (±.45°F from -4° to 32°F)
±0.2°C from 0° to 70°C (±0.36°F from 32° to 158°F)
<0.1°C (0.18°F) per year
MX2203: 17 minutes typical to 90% in air moving 1 m/s, unmounted;
7 minutes typical to 90% in stirred water, unmounted
1 mW (0 dBm)
Approximately 30.5 m (100 ft) line-of-sight
Wireless Data Standard
Bluetooth Smart (Bluetooth Low Energy, Bluetooth 4.0)
Logger Operating Range
-20° to 70°C (-4° to 158°F)
1 second to 18 hours
Buoyancy (Fresh Water)
MX2203: 3.1 g (0.11 oz) negative
MX2203: To 122 m (400 ft)
Water conductivity level of 100 µS/cm or greater necessary for reliable detection of water. Deionized water or water below 100 µS/cm may not be detected.
The water conductivity circuit may not reliably detect water that has frozen around the electrodes, i.e. below 0°C (32°F).
CR2477 3V lithium, user replaceable in MX2203, non-replaceable in MX2204
|3 years, typical at 25°C (77°F) with logging interval of 1 minute and Bluetooth Always On in software.|
5 years, typical at 25°C (77°F) with logging interval of 1 minute and Bluetooth Always Off or Bluetooth Off Water Detect in software.
Faster logging intervals and statistics sampling intervals, burst logging, remaining connected with the app, excessive downloads, and paging may impact battery life.
To ensure proper battery installation, see Battery Information for detailed instructions on replacing the battery in the MX2203 logger.
± 1 minute per month at 25°C (77°F)
