DATAssure™ combined temperature and level sensor released
Since its introduction in 2017 the DATAssure™ wireless and monitoring system has proven itself as the ‘go to’ monitoring system for laboratories around the world.

The easy to use and intuitive system provides a wide array of different sensors, many of which are designed by Planer for use within our customers’ specific applications, and has become a huge success.

One of the specialised probes that had previously been available on the DATAcentre system (the predecessor to DATAssure) was the combined temperature and level sensor for liquid nitrogen sample storage dewars - unique to the Planer system.

We are pleased to announce that the combined temperature and level sensor is now available for the DATAssure system, both 433MHz and 2.4GHz versions.

Part numbers for the new sensors can be found in the table below.

Description Part Number Detailed Description
Temperature & Level
Dewar - up to 50 litres
GDDA-TL-DEWAR-433 Premium combined temperature and level sensor for 433 MHZ DATAssure systems, formable to dewar shape to ensure no interference when entering or exiting samples
Temperature & Level
Dewar - up to 50 litres
GDDA-TL-DEWAR-2400 Premium combined temperature and level sensor for 2.4GHz DATAssure systems, formable to dewar shape to ensure no interference when entering or exiting samples


Range of "standard" sensors now available
Many of the premium sensor solutions, like the temperature level sensor, Planer has developed are bespoke sensors designed to provide the optimal solution to monitoring a specific parameter or a specific piece of equipment.

However we are frequently asked for more cost effective solutions. Therefore, we are also pleased to announce that as well as the premium sensor we already provide, we are adding a new range of standard sensors which will give more cost effective, although not optimal, solutions to monitoring requirements.

Details for all the new sensors can be found in the table below:

Description Part Number Detailed Description
For 433 MHz Systems    
Temperature - Benchtop Incubator - Standard GDDA-T-BT-BAS433 Standard solution provides a flat ribbon cable sensor which can be stuck down inside the chamber and the cable ran out through the chamber seal. Requires one per chamber
Temperature - Dewar - Straight Sensor - Standard GDDA-T-DEWSTR-BAS433 Standard solution incorporating stiff 370mm temperature sensor which can be inserted through the dewar lid to monitor the temperature inside the dewar chamber (requires hole to be drilled through dewar lid for installation)
Temperature - Dewar - Curved Sensor - Standard GDDA-T-DEWCUR-BAS433 Standard solution incorporating flexible formable 1500mm temperature sensor which can be inserted through the dewar lid to monitor the temperature inside the dewar chamber (requires modification to dewar lid for installation)
Temperature - Fridge -45 to +45 - Standard GDDA-TEMP-45-BAS433 Standard solution using NTC 5K sensor with round artic grade cable which will need to be inserted around the door seal. Will measure down to -45 °C.
Temperature - minus 40 Freezer - Standard GDDA-TEMP-50-BAS433 Standard solution using NTC 5K sensor with round artic grade cable which will need to be inserted around the door seal. Will measure down to -50 °C.
Temperature - minus 80 Freezer - Standard GDDA-TEMP-100-BAS433 Standard solution using PT1000 sensor with round artic grade cable which will need to be inserted around the door seal. Will measure down to -100 °C.
For 2.4 GHz Systems
