New Wireless Resistance Sensors – Now Available

Salt Lake City, Utah – October 22, 2014 – Monnit Corporation (www.monnit.com) today announced the release of a new low cost wireless resistance sensor available for commercial and light industrial applications. The new resistance sensor measures and outputs the resistance across a load. It can be connected to any kind of variable resistance device, such as a transducer or sensor that outputs voltage. If the device being measured is passive, the user must supply power to that device. To reduce error, a variable resistor configuration is implemented on the ADC to cover specific resistance ranges.

New Wireless Resistance Sensors by Monnit

Features of the new wireless resistance sensor:

  • Measures up to 145 KOhms.
  • Accurate to ± 1.5% (FS) with user calibration.
  • Interfaces with any variable resistance device.

More information can be found here.

Focused on simplicity, Monnit wireless sensors can be setup, gathering data and notifying users of concerns in just a few short minutes. The new sensors are available in standard coin cell and AA battery powered commercial formats, as well as in an industrial (weatherproof/dust proof) format. All of Monnit’s commercial and industrial sensors are available in global RF frequencies (900, 868 and 433 MHz) allowing them to be used globally.

Monnit’s wireless sensors are designed to detect and monitor functions that are critical to business or personal life, including; temperature, humidity, water, light, access, movement and much more.  Monnit’s wireless gateways transmit data between local sensor networks and the iMonnit online monitoring and notification system.  Monnit’s software allows for user customization and notification of events via email or text messages.

They are ideal for monitoring humidity within greenhouses, industrial spaces, museums, saunas and humidors. They can also be used for residential applications such as controlling mold, mildew or dust mites.

Monnit Wireless Humidity Sensors
-  Scientific grade sensor.
-  +/- 1.8% accuracy (between 10% - 90% RH).
-  0 to 100% RH operating range.

Focused on simplicity, Monnit wireless sensors can be setup, gathering data and notifying users of concerns in just a few short minutes. Monnit currently provides over 40 unique wireless sensor types for measuring temperature, humidity, door and window (open/close), motion, water, activity, dry contact and a variety of other conditions that are critical to businesses.

Monnit Releases Wireless Sensors’ Control Device

Monnit Wireless Control
Salt Lake City, UT – May 20, 2014 – Monnit Corporation (www.monnit.com), a leading provider of wireless monitoring and sensing solutions for commercial and industrial clients announced today the release of a much anticipated wireless control device. Perfect for retrofit applications, the Monnit Control device offers an easy and inexpensive way to add wireless control to a variety of commercial, industrial and consumer self-monitoring applications.

“The release of wireless control to our best-of-breed, self monitoring solutions is the first in a line of new products which round out the Monnit offering to address the gamut of needs for commercial and industrial monitoring. Monitoring is critical to business today and control is the obvious follow on to a need determined by a reliable, low cost monitoring solution.” said Brad Walters, CEO Monnit. “Intelligent control helps manage business processes, conserve energy and optimize operational efficiencies.”

The Monnit wireless control device provides two separate 10-amp or 30-amp relays (controls) that can be toggled on/off, at will, by either; a paired wireless sensor on the same network or directly by the user through the iMonnit.com web portal.

Each of the units two relays can be paired with any Monnit wireless sensor (currently over 40 types) to automatically activate the relay when the sensor detects user defined conditions. The user can set the default state of each relay to “on” or “off”, then set conditions that will cause the relay to switch. The control device will listen for messages from either the software or directly from the paired sensor (if in range) and check against the set conditions. If a sensor reading meets the set conditions, the control relay will automatically switch to the non-default state. When the sensor reports a reading that falls back outside the set conditions, the relay switches back to it’s default state. For example, if a water sensor detects water at a certain level in a sump pit, the relay will switch ON, activating the pump. When water is no longer detected, the relay will switch OFF, deactivating the pump motor.

In addition, the relays can also be directly switched on or off through the iMonnit software which is accessible from any web enabled device such as smart phones. These changes can also be defined as temporary, based on a set duration (example: turn the relay on for 10 minutes then switch off).

The new wireless control device is available from Monnit at www.monnit.com as well as available in a completely brandable version available through www.oemsensors.com. For more information visit http://www.monnit.com/Products/Accessories/Commercial-Control/.

Monnit Releases New Wi-Fi Analog Voltage Sensor

Monnit Wi-Fi Analog Voltage Sensor
Salt Lake City, Utah – April 29, 2014 – Monnit Corporation (www.monnit.com) today released a new Wi-Fi analog voltage sensor. The Wi-Fi analog voltage sensor is capable of measuring the voltage  off another device, battery, or sensor, up to 1.2 DCV by connecting the leads on the voltage sensor to the positive and ground terminals of the device being measured. Examples of interfacing devices include, but are not limited to: strain gauges, pressure transducers, RTDs, thermistors, thermocouples, piezo electric sensors, photoresistors, any kind of variable resistor or any kind of sensor that outputs a voltage, etc.

If the device being measured is passive, the user must supply their own excitation voltage, as the Monnit Wi-Fi analog voltage sensor is really just a “voltage observer”. This sensor cannot be used for AC voltage measurement.

Focused on simplicity, MoWi wireless sensors can be setup, gathering data and notifying users of concerns in just a few short minutes. This latest Wi-Fi sensor adds to the fifteen currently available MoWi (Monnit Wi-Fi) sensors that measure temperature, humidity, door and window (open/close), motion, water, activity, dry contact and a variety of other conditions that are critical to businesses. These sensors use an integrated, 2.4GHz - 802.11b/g, FCC/CE certified radio transmitter allowing them to communicate with new and existing Wi-Fi networks globally.

All Monnit wireless sensors include free basic iMonnit online sensor monitoring which aggregates sensor information and sends notifications via text or email if user defined conditions are met or exceeded.

Monnit also provides MoWi sensors to OEM’s and Reseller’s through OEMSensors.com, which allows for white labeling (private branding) of both the wireless sensor hardware and the online monitoring software.
