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.
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. Choose from the following probes to suit your needs.
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. Choose from the following probes to suit your needs.
DMP5 for in-line measurement in high temperature applications <180 °C (356 °F), such as in industrial drying
DMP6 for in-line measurements in very high temperatures <350 °C (660 °F)
DMP7 for remote installations in tight spaces with measurement range to -70 °C (-94 °F). Application examples include semiconductor manufacturing equipment, industrial drying systems, compressed air systems, and dry rooms
DMP8 for pressurized pipelines <40 bars with measurement range to -70 °C (-94 °F). Typical applications include industrial drying, compressed air systems, and applications in the semiconductor industry
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.
Choose from the following probes to suit your needs:
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. Choose from the following probes to suit your needs:
The Moisture in Oil Probe uses the proven Vaisala HUMICAP® sensor that was developed for demanding moisture measurements.
This unique industrial device measures three parameters simultaneously: barometric pressure, humidity, and temperature and it incorporates Vaisala's proprietary, space-proof HUMICAP® and BAROCAP® technologies.
The Vaisala Polaris process refractometers combined with the Indigo520 for process refractometers offers compelling features for liquid concentration measurements and extend the process refractometer functionalities with data logging, wash control, trends, settings, measurement parameters, and more.
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.
Vaisala's Indigo80 Handheld Indicator is an industrial-grade portable meter designed for troubleshooting, calibrating, and adjusting Vaisala Indigo-compatible probes. Ideal for spot-checking sensor accuracy, as well as short-term data logging and process monitoring, the Indigo80 can communicate simultaneously with up to two Vaisala probes and transmitters to provide accurate measurements for a wide range of parameters.
Insight PC software gives quick access to the configurations and data of the Indigo-compatible measurement probes. The probes can be detached from the process and connected to a PC with an USB cable for set-up and field calibration. The software makes changing the settings and calibrating the device easy with intuitive graphical user interface; just launch the software and connect the USB cable. Up to six devices can be connected simultaneously.

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.
