A novel instrument has been developed to monitor and record the ambient parameters such as temperature, atmospheric pressure and relative humidity. With this data logger continuous recording of temperature, atmospheric pressure, relative humidity and the time stamp can be done with a programmable sampling interval. The device is interfaced with computer by Lab-view software. This instrument is very cheap and these parameters are very essential for understanding the characteristics such as gain of gas filled detectors like Gas Electron Multiplier (GEM) and Multi Wire Proportional Counter (MWPC). In the second version, the data can be monitored remotely through Ethernet. In this article the details of the design, fabrication and operation processes of the device has been presented.
