Newsletter // Issue 4 // August 2009 // 


We here at Star-Oddi proudly present our new look and would like to invite all of you to visit our new website. We decided to update our old look as we were planning the new website. We think that our new logo and overall appearance convays better what Star-Oddi is all about; innovative high quality products inspired by our customers in life sciences, designed and produced here in Iceland and delivered with personal service. Also with our new website ( we are aiming at serving all of our customer groups better than before. There are still some sections that are not perfect, but we are working on those! Enjoy!

'Choose by sensor' feature

You can find the new ‘Choose by sensor‘ feature on the ‘Products‘ page. Check the box of the sensor you are most interested in – you can only select one at a time – and the product list will narrow down to the recorders that have the requested sensor as the ‘main‘ sensor. For example, if you tick temperature you will see all the products that measure only temperature, by choosing conductivity, you will see all the conductivity loggers, even if they have other sensors too.

Online Support


Under Online Support you have the possibility to access different Star-Oddi related downloads.
In ‚Brochures‘ you can find our up-to-date leaflets and brochures as pdf files.
Also user‘s manuals (PDF) for the latest software releases can be viewed and downloaded from Star-Oddi website.

Most Importantly the latest software updates can be found on our page as before. SeaStar, FoodStar and Mercury updates are available for all our customers for free. We recommend to keep your software updated with the latest version.

At the new Star-Oddi website you will find an extensive Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) section with the most common questions and answers. We cover general questions such as the ordering process, sales and delivery policies, technical questions such as recalibration and e.g. further explanation of certain features. You can also find the FAQ sections with questions and answers directed to specialized fields useful.

New sensor icons

When we were working with the new Star-Oddi look we saw a need for better visual aids for our ever growing product family. We created new sensor icons to assist you in finding the products with the wanted sensor(s). The sensor icons are used in the website on individual product pages to indicate the sensors available and in the ‘Choose by sensor‘ feature.

'Comparison' feature

We added a comparison feature to to help you compare the products you are interested in. You can compare the most important technical specifications, such as sensors,  size, battery life and accuracies of up to three different products at the same time.

You can access this feature in the Products page in a section called ‘Compare products‘ or by browsing through the individual product profiles and selecting ‘ Compare products‘ under the product picture. After you have selected the loggers you are interested in click ‘Compare now‘ and a comparison table with the products of your choice opens. You can remove a product from the comparison by selecting ‘remove‘ below the picture and replace it with another product.
