The New York State Office of Cultural Education, which includes the
State Archives, Library, and Museum, is considering replacement of
its datalogger system, used in both on and off site storage areas as
well as exhibition spaces. We presently have hardwired (plug-in,
electrical-powered units) Pinnacle loggers and wireless
(stand-alone, battery-powered units) Smart Readers.

Priorities for a new system are: alarms which activate when set
points are exceeded; availability of both hardwired and wireless
models; and availability of contract maintenance and training from
the vendor.

Our research indicates that T&D and Veriteq are likely candidates.
Have any readers had experience with these companies? Do readers
have any other recommendations to make?

Our research also indicates that newer technologies such as Ethernet
and radio frequency transmissions may have applications to this
issue. Have any readers experienced incompatibilities with multiple
electronic systems functioning in the same institutional space?
