Abstract

Museum showcases are systems that ensure the protection of artifacts, sometimes of inestimable value. When the museum showcase is subject to significant environmental fluctuations, it can have disastrous consequences for works of art. Using simple electronic components, easy-to-use measuring equipment was developed to collect data on relative humidity and temperature.
