Glimpse of the future

Crystal Ball

Let's take a look in our crystal ball to see what the future holds at Monnit?

The Monnit development team has been working on our new gas sensors. We are nearing completion of the first of these new gas sensors, a wireless CO sensor capable of running for years off a single coin cell battery. The wireless CO sensor will measure the amount of carbon monoxide in the surrounding air and alert you via SMS text or email if it detects an amount outside of your defined "safe" parameters. If you would like to learn more about this product or would like to be notified when it becomes available, please email us at sales@monnit.com.

Remote Monitoring for Business

Remotely Monitoring
Walk-In Cooler Temperatures

Maintaining an optimal temperature in your walk-in coolers is important for keeping your food or floral products fresh. If the temperature falls above or below the optimal range, costly spoilage can occur. Monnit has saved restaurants, food distributors and florists hundreds of thousands of dollars in spoilage when using our low-cost, wireless temperature sensors to monitor their walk-in coolers.

Using Monnit wireless sensors provides peace of mind when it comes to knowing if your coolers are working properly. We recommend using Monnit's wireless temperature sensors to monitor the operational temperatures of your walk-ins, as well as Monnit's affordable wireless open/closed sensors to alert you if a cooler door has not closed all the way.

Protect Your Walk-In Coolers and Contents with Monnit Wireless Sensors!

Tech Tip of the Month

Understanding and Using Monnit

Wireless Pulse Counters.

Monnit's single input pulse counters give you the choice of counting pulses or counting transitions.

When choosing to count pulses, the sensor will count every time the input voltage rises or falls (see figure 1 below).

When choosing to count transitions, the sensor will count every state change of the input signal. When the voltage goes up, the sensor counts, and when it falls, it counts again, giving you two counts for the transition (see figure 2 below).

If you had the exact same input on two pulse counters, the data if counting transitions would be twice that of the data counting pulses.
