Tempcon Instrumentation Ltd

Established in 1980 Tempcon Instrumentation Ltd specialises temperature probe manufacture and instrumentation for Measurement, Control and Data Logging of temperature, humidity, pressure, voltage, current, energy (kWhs), wind speed/direction, soil temperature, and most environmental conditions.

We offer an incredible range of Data Loggers, Chart Recorders, Digital Thermometers, Process Controllers, Signal Conditioners, Panel Indicators, Energy Loggers, Weather Stations, Thermocouples, Rtd's, PT100 Probes, and Thermistor Probes for use in environmental monitoring, manufacturing, food processing, logistics, and University research projects.

Digital Food Thermometers

Digital Food thermometers are used by over 80% of all food stores, and restaurants to measure food temperatures.

As instrumentation suppliers to well known high street food supermarket giants for over 20 years we know a thing or two about measuring food temperatures.

Our digital food thermometers are low-cost, easy to use, and are available with easily replaceable low cost probes.

Available as single thermometers with single probes to meet your requirements they are also available in easily recognisable 'food hygiene kits' with penetration (core temperature), air temperature, and between pack probes to suit the application.

If you are looking for even lower cost our range of fixed probe thermometers start at just a few Pounds.

If infrared thermometers, wireless, or data logging is called for - we have that too.

Food temperature has been our business for over 30 years!

HOBO Data Loggers

Tempcon are official long-term UK distributors of HOBO Data Loggers, Energy Loggers, and Weather Stations, 

All HOBO loggers sold in the UK are sourced via Tempcon. 

HOBO Data loggers are small, battery operated, and convenient to use. An extremely wide product range offers both wireless and conventional loggers for use in industry, environmental research, electrical energy monitoring, and food processing, food retail, and logistics.
Measurements include: Temperature, relative humidity, state, event, wind speed, wind direction, soil moisture, solar radiation, kWhrs, voltage, and current.

Miniature loggers, single channel, multi-channel, internal sensors, external sensors, waterproof for outside use, or dedicated underwater loggers for temperature, level and pressure - the product list is extensive. 

Outdoor use Weather Stations measure all of these parameters plus rain level, wind speed, wind direction, solar and soil conditions. 

Energy loggers monitor current and voltage levels and calculate kWhs in order to help with supply and load problems.

With very low prices no measurement or logging problem is too great or too small.

Dickson Chart Recorders

Dickson Means Data Measurement.

As Official distributors Tempcon offer the full range of 3”,4”,6” and 8” Circular Chart Recorders. Many Dickson Chart Recorders offer not only alarms and relays but precise digital displays for clear interpretation of measured values. Although paper recorders have many practical applications in industry and research many of the Dickson recorders are designed specifically for medical use such as Blood-Banks, Vaccine, or Tissure recording.

The NEW Touchscreen Recorder combines many of these features and applications in a large 'touchscreen' recorder measuring temperature and relative humidity with USB and FLASH card data download.

Dickson also offer a range of single, and multi-channel, data loggers with large clear displays recording temperature, relative humidity, or events.

 A unique and useful feature of many Dickson recorders, and loggers, is the ability to download measured data to a removable FLASH Card.

And if your looking for Dickson Paper Charts, we have them too!

Wireless Data Loggers

Tempcon offer a wide range of wireless data loggers  from Onset, Hanwell (IMC), Grant and Dyzle.

With a unique range of wireless data loggers measuring temperature, relative humidity, events, state, shock, voltage and current and the emphasise on wireless, Our dataloggers are particularly suitable for monitoring critical situations in museums, warehouses, transport, and warehouse storage conditions.


For the first time, the iSense range incorporates wireless GPRS technology that enables remote monitoring of diverse parameters on buildings, machinery, infrastructure or vehicles, even in locations that previously seemed inaccessible.

Monitor any parameter with iSense including; energy, temperature, humidity, pressure, structural stress etc..

Wireless Data Loggers

Energy Data Loggers

Energy Loggers monitor voltage and current load, then calculate kWh costs.
What is the cost of using an appliance? What are the costs of supplying my factory, hospital, museum, workshop with electricity? What are the load problems and where can I save money?

HOBO Wireless ZW Series Data Loggers, and H22 Energy Loggers record temperature, RH, kW, kWh AC current/voltage, 4-20mA, 0-2.5 VDC, carbon dioxide, gauge/differential pressure, water flow, and air flow/velocity via internal or external inputs.

HOBO Multi-Channel U30 Data Logging Systems monitor everything!

4 distinct loggers offer research grade measurements and USB, GSB Wireless, Wi-Fi Wireless, and Ethernet communication systems.

Chart Recorders

As distributors for Dickson, Eurotherm and JRI you can choose from a wide range of Chart Recorders:

6000 Series Chart Recorders fit a wide spectrum of applications and offer unrivalled input accuracy with a 125ms total sample rate for up to 48 input channels. Input channels are freely configurable to suit process requirements. The recorders have an intuitive, touch screen display to enable the operator to clearly view process data in varying formats.
6180A Recorders have onboard Flash data storage capability, Ethernet communication and choice of Compact Flash or SD Card. Data is stored in a tamper resistant binary format that can be used for secure, long term records of your process.

394 Circular Chart Recorders, with annotation, are clear leaders in chart technology. The 394 can monitor up to 6 simultaneous inputs and combines four colour printing with annotation to produce a clear and easy to read chart.
The recorder is fully configurable from the front panel or via the optional PC card reader.
Up to two independent controllers can be added enabling the 394 to control as well as record the process. Modbus communications make this instrument a very flexible component in a system or network solution.

Temperature Sensors

We offer a wide range of thermocouple, PT100/1000, and thermistor temperature sensors for many different applications in industry, environmental research, and food. 

Many parameters can affect the choice of sensor such as temperature, cable, sheath diameter, length, and hand-held or fixed installation.

Sensors are available in all the normal K,J,T,N,S,R thermocouple materials, Pt100 or Pt1000 platinum resistance, or thermistor bead.  Industrial probes with cable, threaded boss, or weatherproof head. Hand-held probes with choice of handle and coiled or normal cable. A range of plugs, sockets, and 2-wire transmitters complements the product range.

Tempcon Instrumentation can offer practical advice and, being temperature sensor manufacturers,  can build to meet your specific specification. A large selection of hand-held food probes can be supplied from stock.
