Thermal Output of RuuviTag?

Hello, I’m new here, so I’m not sure if this is more appropriate in the hardware section.

TLDR: what is the thermal output of the RuuviTag?

I just bought a RuuviTag for a project of mine that will monitor the temperature of a cooler so I can determine how long it takes before the internal cooler temperature is above a certain limit. I am hoping for the most accurate readings, as the contents are temperature sensitive. I am trying to figure out if putting the sensor in the environment I am looking to measure will have an impact on the temperature of the environment. I would appreciate any input on this subject. Thank you!


Not completely understand what you mean. Do you mean how much RuuviTag is heating the location what you are planning to measure? Power consumption is ~30uA, so it really doesn’t have any measurable impact to the measurements.

Thank you for your quick response. Yes, that’s what I was wondering. Good to know that it doesn’t generate much heat!

Hi @toml,

Thanks for your message! This information might be also relevant depending what you are measuring.
