The Starmon mini records water
temperature at a user defined interval
and stores the data in its internal
memory. The recorder is supported
by the Communication Cable and
the SeaStar software. Every Starmon
recorder is calibrated in a stable, high
accuracy temperature bath and has
its individual calibration constants
stored in its memory. Every Starmon
recorder is delivered with a calibration
certificate. Starmon mini is available in
plastic (400m depth range) or titanium
(11,000m depth range) housing.
Using Starmon mini is simple and
easy. The end cap of the housing
is removed and the recorder is
connected to a PC computer with
the Communication Cable, either to
a 9 pin RS232C serial port or USB.
The user can connect to the recorder
through the SeaStar software and
define the sampling interval and start
time of recordings.
After the recorder has
been started, cable is
unplugged, end cap
is screwed firmly on and recorder
is ready for deployment. After the
measuring period, data is uploaded
from the recorder into a PC computer
using the Communication Cable and
SeaStar software. In SeaStar the
data is shown in graphic and tabular
form along with date and time of each
measurement. Data can be imported
into other data processing software.

The Starmon mini is designed for
use in oceans, rivers and lakes and
has a reputation of being a reliable
instrument in demanding environments.
Starmon mini is mainly used for
researches within the fields of marine
biology, oceanography, hydrology,
aquaculture, oil & gas, geology,
geothermal and boreholes.
A stainless steel housing can be
provided for the Starmon mini. The
housing can be used to protect the
recorder from harsh conditions or to
better attach the recorder to moorings,
deployment lines and other underwater
gear. Star-Oddi also offers a battery
replacement kit.
