Tiny Transportation Loggers

Smart Storage Loggers

Senonics Minnow Logger Usage


Suppose for example you would like to transport some delicate or fragile cargo from one location to another.

By attaching or placing the logger in the cargo, a Minnow logger you can record temperature and humidity conditions during the journey.

At the destination you can then extract the logged data using a very simple PC application and see graphically or in raw data format the changes in environment over time.

The Minnow logger is the smallest logger in its class for measuring temperature and relative humidity. The device measures just 35mm x 60mm x 15mm.

The device also offers long battery life (up to 4 years) and logging storage of 65520 samples of both temperature and humidity.

Senonics Bluefin Logger Usage


The Bluefin logger is a portable wireless temperature and humidity logger.

The Bluefin logger can be connected either via a USB cable to a Windows or Mac PC or wirelessly using Bluetooth to your iPhone, iPad or iPadMini.

Both Windows, Mac and iPhone applications all offer a simple means of configuring the logger, data extraction and data viewing features.

The Bluefin logger is equipped with a rechargeable battery with 6 months before needing to be recharged.

The Bluefin logger is always connectable from your mobile device without needing any physical touching of the logger.

Sine & Quasi Inverter Chargers

Large Capacity 2 VDC SLA Batteries

The TrippLite Inverter Chargers

MasTec sold its first TrippLite inverter charger in 1993. It is still running.

If you want to make long battery backed up Power systems, say for IT systems, your Radio Station or maybe your Whole Office or Home, then MasTec can help.

We recommend TrippLite as the Inverter Charger for these types of systems. They are not optimal for Solar Alternative Power but they have the best price to performance ratio for Commercial, Residential or Industrial locations that normally are powered by AC Mains supplies.

TrippLite systems all have excellent overload characteristics for starting motors, pumps, refrig, microwaves etc

They have large chargers also for bringing back the battery bank quickly and safely when the mains returns.

MasTec also can provide those large SLA batteries for such a system. We recommend 2V cells in series to build the right size one string bank.

This is the most efficient and longest lasting battery configuration method.

We do not recommend Lthium battery banks yet as the prices are too high and there are issues that need addressing in this market. Lithium is impossible to recycle at present. On the other hand Lead Acid SLA batteries recycle easily.

An example - 2012SW Pure Sine Inverter/Charger

PowerVerter APS INT 2000W 12VDC 230V Inverter/Charger with Pure Sine Wave Output, Hardwired

Looking to reproduce wall power from a battery source without any power interference?

Are you using a vehicle battery or separate battery bank to supply power in remote locations or work environments where wall power / shore power is not available?

With reliable 230V AC power, Pure Sine Wave output and the ability to charge batteries, the Tripp Lite APSX2012SW is your answer.

12V DC or 230V AC input; 230V, 50 Hz output (hardwired)
2000 watts continuous output, 4000 watts peak output

Selectable 6/60 amp wet/dry cell battery charger

Pure sine wave output - Seamless transfer switching

Quiet, high efficiency operation, high surge capacity and low idle current
