ECOTECH released the Congrego ® data logger in 2018, a game changer for the environmental monitoring industry. With Congrego ® Lite, ECOTECH has included the same superior technology in a more compact, portable unit with a significantly lower price tag.

One year after the release of ECOTECH’s ground-breaking Congrego® data logger, ECOTECH adds Congrego® Lite to its suite of data logging instruments – offering customers a choice between the full-function capabilities of the original and the new, lower priced compact unit.
Congrego® Lite is the ideal solution for smaller meteorological stations, dust monitoring sites and other applications where there isn’t a need for a large number of channels or calibrations. It is also the perfect data logger for tunnels where multiple units can be easily installed to give better spatial resolution and accurate air quality data along the entire tunnel length.
Congrego® Lite has been specially designed for smaller applications with a reduced number of channels (15). It is 30 per cent smaller and requires less power usage than the original Congrego®.
Congrego® Lite offers the same simple set-up and easy installation with an intuitive and customisable user interface. It fulfils the “traceability of records” requirement of ISO 17025; allows for local or remote control of monitoring instruments; has automated alarms and alerts; works with or without an internet connection, and integrates seamlessly with ECOTECH AirodisTM data collection, validation & reporting software.
“We wanted to give our customers with smaller scale applications or monitoring stations access to the same advanced technology but at a much lower price” said Grant Kassell, ECOTECH Research & Development Manager.
“They now have the option of the full-form Congrego® or the more compact Congrego® Lite. No matter which system they choose their environmental data will always be accessible, accurate and secure at all times,” he added.
Like all ECOTECH products and services, Congrego® Lite is backed by a fully accredited, expert technical support team.
