The Vaisala Indigo family is a customizable instrument platform designed to improve process measurements. The Indigo family's key feature is modularity. It contains a selection of transmitters, interchangeable smart probes that measure various parameters, and software for easy interfacing and monitoring of data. Choose any probe and connect it with any of the transmitters, or integrate the probes into other systems. The Indigo platform is built on top of Vaisala’s self-produced, core sensor technologies.
Whether you measure humidity, temperature, dew point, moisture in oil, carbon dioxide, barometric pressure, or vaporized hydrogen peroxide, the accuracy and long-term stability of Indigo-compatible probes are in the class of their own. The probes deliver repeatable measurement with high resolution, providing you with data that you can rely on, which helps you to make better decisions – over the long term.
Indigo transmitters are host devices for Vaisala Indigo-compatible, stand-alone smart probes. The local display in the transmitter is useful, when something isn’t clear or there’s a problem, or when performing maintenance work in the field. Also, data from probes is shown on the transmitter display, allowing users to view what is going on. All the Indigo probes can be connected to any of the Indigo transmitters and changed on without interrupting the process, which reduces downtime. Choose from the following transmitters to suit your needs
The Indigo-compatible humidity probes are based on Vaisala’s proprietary HUMICAP® technology recognized for its excellent long-term stability, sensor heating for condensing environments and full recovery from condensation, insensitivity to dust and most chemicals, and chemical purge option.
The Indigo-compatible dew point probes are based on Vaisala’s DRYCAP® technology whose unrivalled performance is based on the capacitive thin-film polymer sensor and the auto-calibration function. Probes with the DRYCAP sensor deliver accurate measurements in the long term, dramatically reducing the need for maintenance.
Indigo-compatible carbon dioxide (CO2) probes are based on Vaisala’s unique CARBOCAP® technology that enables exceptional stability. They are ideal for applications such as incubators, greenhouses, fruit and vegetable storage and cargo, animal shelters and demand-controlled ventilation.
Indigo-compatible vaporized hydrogen peroxide probes feature Vaisala’s unique PEROXCAP® technology. which enables accurate and repeatable measurement of the bio-decontamination cycle with one single probe.
The Moisture in Oil Probe uses the proven Vaisala HUMICAP® sensor that was developed for demanding moisture measurements.
Vaisala’s proprietary BAROCAP® micromechanical sensor uses dimensional changes in its silicon membrane to measure pressure.

Vaisala HUMICAP® Humidity and Temperature Probe HMP1 is designed for measuring ambient measurement in indoor spaces.
Vaisala HUMICAP® Humidity and Temperature Probe HMP3 is a general-purpose probe designed for processes with moderate humidity and temperature levels.
Smart and robust. That’s Vaisala MMP8. Powered by the Vaisala HUMICAP® sensor technology, it has become a virtual standard in its field.
Vaisala HUMICAP® Humidity and Temperature Probe HMP4 is designed for high-pressure applications such as compressed air systems in maritime, breathing air, and industrial applications, where measurement performance and chemical tolerance are essential.
Vaisala HUMICAP® Humidity and Temperature Probe HMP5 is designed for high temperature applications such as baking ovens, pasta dryers, ceramics and industrial drying kilns where measurement performance and chemical tolerance are essential.
Vaisala Insight PC Software gives quick access to the configurations and data of the Indigo family measurement probes and other supported Vaisala devices. Download latest software and firmware versions.
There are many probe options to choose from measuring several parameters: humidity, temperature, dew point, CO2, moisture in oil, and vaporized hydrogen peroxide. The probes can be attached to Indigo500 or Indigo200 series transmitter. When is a probe sufficient on its own – and when do you need both a probe and a transmitter?
Digital communication may sound complicated, expensive, and difficult to implement. Join this webinar where our experts will give an introduction to the Modbus protocol, including the benefits compared to analog outputs.
As one of the world’s leading suppliers of high quality malt products, Viking Malt has investigated the advantages of continuous humidity monitoring inside the malting process at its facility using Vaisala’s Indigo520 and HMP7 and TMP1 probes.
Van Veldhuijzen-Boxmeer Disinfection Services has been providing sterilization and bio-decontamination services since 1990. Their services include microbiological analysis of surfaces, air and water. Common applications serviced include Biosafety level 3 laboratories, animal housing, cleanrooms, and safety cabinet air handling units.
Isolava began a project to optimize the drying process, led by Project Engineer Peter Vaneyghen. The first step was to install humidity sensors in the dryer in order to get a better understanding of the dynamics of the drying process. The consumption of natural gas alone has decreased by some 20% and the annual savings across all ten dryers add up to hundreds of thousands of euros.
Learn about the benefits of using two probes measuring either the same parameter or two different ones.
In this free webinar we share the key success factors for maintaining world-class measurement performance for your instruments.
Supermarkets all over Australia and New Zealand are benefiting from advanced carbon dioxide monitors as new natural refrigeration systems are installed in the fight against climate change. Woolworths, and its cold chain partner Emerson, therefore needed an accurate, reliable CO2 monitor that could fulfill this vital role as the Group expands the use of natural refrigerants in its stores.
