I would like to bring to your attention my recent endeavor with a
new type of Datalogger. Last fall the Cornell University Library
Department of Preservation and Conservation began to investigate the
feasibility and availability of a web based datalogger. When we
found that none were available, we began to look for possible
vendors who would be able to develop and build such a unit. After
much discussion, testing, etc. The unit is now a reality.  It is
called an ezLogger/TRH. We have received 5 units this past week for
installation here at Cornell, and would expect them to be "up and
running" by the end of the month. When installed they can be checked
from any remote computer via the Internet. While ours are not yet
installed, Pinnacle Technologies, the company who developed the
prototype for us, has a web site with an available unit for viewing
the bmp files (requires Internet Explorer):

If I can be of any further assistance, please feel free to contact
