Description

Monnit wireless compass sensors use a highly sensitive 3 axis digital compass to return the orientation of the device in regards to magnetic north. Great for tracking directional behavior and positioning. User customization allows you to set alerts via SMS text or email if criteria are met or exceeded.

The standard version of this sensor is powered by two replaceable 1.5 V AA sized batteries (included with purchase). This sensor is also available with a line power option. The line powered version of this sensor has a barrel power connector allowing it to be powered by a standard 3.0 - 3.6 V power supply (Included with Line Power option upgrade). The line powered version also uses two standard 1.5 V AA batteries as backup for uninterrupted operation in the event of line power outage.

Power options must be selected at time of purchase, as the internal hardware of the sensor must be changed to support the selected power requirements.



Features

  • North and East Calibration
  • Uses 3-axis digital compass
  • Heading Offset (for true north)

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