Wireless Thermocouple Sensor

ALTA Wireless Thermocouple Sensor

The ALTA Wireless Thermocouple Sensor is available with a hardwired thermocouple or K-type connector to support various thermocouple types and ranges. The hardwired thermocouple option measures temperatures up to 400°C (752°F). The K-type connector with Probe includes a needle probe that measures temperatures up to 400°C (752°F).  Users have the ability to set the frequency of readings, set thresholds for alerts and to send alerts via SMS text and/or emails. Sensor conditions and readings are transmitted and displayed to a web and mobile accessible Dashboard via Cellular or Ethernet Gateways.

 

Product Features

 

  • Superior Range: ALTA sensors offer 3 to 4 times the range of standard sensor platforms, extending non-line-of-sight reach to an exceptional 1,200+ feet through walls (12-14 walls typical).
  • Long Battery Life:  Power management provides ALTA sensors with almost twice the battery life of Monnit’s standard wireless sensors.
    • Coin cell sensors typically last 3+ years.
    • AA and Industrial sensors typically last up to 12+ years.
  • Secure Wireless Communications: ALTA products employ Monnit's new Encrypt-RF® Security (256-bit Diffie Hellman key exchange and AES-128 CBC encryption for all sensor data messages), so security is maintained at all communication points from sensor to gateway, gateway to software, then back again.
  • Data backup:  Integrated on-board data storage allows ALTA sensors to store data messages if communication to a wireless gateway is disrupted (power outage, Internet outage, or out of range). Messages that can’t be delivered will be time-stamped and stored in memory (up to the last 512 messages) until communication with the gateway is restored, at which point the messages will all be transmitted.
  • Over-the-air updates allow ALTA products to be updated remotely if new fixes or features become available.

  * Actual range may vary depending on environment.
** Battery life is determined by sensor reporting frequency and other variables.
