The LB-535 thermo hygrometer is a wireless relative humidity and temperature recorder. It is powered from an external exchangeable battery or, optionally, from an external power unit. For the temperature measurement, the wireless thermo hygrometer uses a Pt-1000 thermistor, and a capacitive sensor for the measurement of humidity. The measurement results are displayed on a LCD display.
The LB-535 wireless recorder is equipped with a large memory for storing measurements, which — for example, for the LB-535T thermometer, with the recording interval set to 18 minutes — is sufficient to record entries for more than a one year recording session. The data are stored in the memory and “overwritten”, which means that when the memory is full, the oldest recordings are deleted.
Communication with the wireless thermo hygrometer is via radio waves over the publicly available 433 MHz band. The LB-536 interface (or the LB-499-EL-WAVE radio module installed inside the LB-480 hub/recorder or the LB-490) is an intermediary in data exchange between the LBX software and the wireless thermo hygrometers — the LB-535 recorders. The LB-480 hub/recorder or the LB-490 with a radio module allow for integration of the LB-535 thermo hygrometers/recorders with the Ethernet network, which provides excellent flexibility of the system structure. Each LB-535 wireless temperature and humidity recorder may also function as a radio signal transmitter (then the recorder needs to be powered from a power supply network) thereby effectively increasing its range, making it possible to use the system in challenging conditions — e.g. inside multi-storey buildings. The number of wireless recorders operating in one system is practically unlimited. All temperature and humidity recorders in the system operate in one channel, and are periodically queried thanks to unique addresses. There is the possibility of changing the radio channel of wireless thermo hygrometers, in order to avoid operating over a band that is occupied by another radio device operating locally. The wireless recorder, by default, is equipped with an antenna with an SMA connection. This makes it possible to use an antenna connected with the instrument via a coaxial cable and to locate the antenna freely in relation to the location of the recorder.
The instrument may be optionally used in the LB-535T version, designed solely for temperature measurement and recording, preformed with a built-in or an external temperature sensor, in compliance with the technical ranges defined in the “Extensions” section, and in the LB-535TI version, equipped with a pyrometer temperature sensor.
Each wireless thermo hygrometer (thermometer), as per order, may feature an individual calibration certificate issued by LAB-EL Calibration laboratory, the calibration certificate issued by the Central Office of Measures in Warsaw or by the Military Metrology Centre in Warsaw.
The LB-535, LB-535T and LB-535TI recorders are designed for controlling and documenting the course of technological processes in production facilities and warehouses — especially for pharmaceutical, medical and food industries. It is especially useful in meeting the requirements for ISO and HACCP production quality control in food and pharmaceutical industries. It may be used for monitoring temperature in distribution centres and growing cellars. The LB-535 recorder/thermometer ensures that the safety requirements are met for the storage of vaccines, medicines and other products sensitive to temperature in State Sanitary Inspection facilities, outpatient clinics, hospitals and pharmacies.

By special order, the following set-ups are available:
Remark (*1): The given measurement range may be additionally limited by the parameters of the external
Remark (*2): The battery is not subject to warranty.
Remark (*3): The instrument is by default calibrated with the use of the standard resistor.
The given measurement uncertainty stems from the use of a class B thermistor in the temperature sensor. In the case of wider measurement ranges, the measurement uncertainty may be corrected through an individual calibration of the thermometer via a concrete probe. Individual calibration is available as an option, which should be indicated in the order or ordered independently as a service. The service will be performed after submission of the instrument to LAB-EL Calibration Laboratory.
