Tinytag data loggers have been designed to monitor changes in relative humidity and temperature

Valence House Museum tells the history of London’s Borough of Barking and Dagenham.

It comprises 13 galleries, which each feature display cases full of mixed-media objects.

To protect the historical pieces, 15 Tinytag Plus 2 and View 2 data loggers have been installed.

Monitoring fluctuations with Tinytags

By monitoring changes in relative humidity and temperature, the data loggers are able to help with the management of the objects’ preservation and conservation.

They are working to protect unglazed ceramics, 16th century wall paintings and textiles.

If relative humidity was to fluctuate, these items would be at risk of irreparable damage.

A Tinytag has also been tasked with monitoring the case which contains the Dagenham Idol, a wooden figurine that is approximately 4,000 years old.

In addition to this, the data loggers are being used to monitor the conditions in the museum’s mixed-media store and cataloguing spaces.

The relative humidity fluctuation is examined over a 24 hour period; the data recorded by the Tinytags is also downloaded on a monthly basis.
