Description

Monnit wireless light meters measure the intensity of light in lux (luminescence/unit area), from 0 – 1000 lux (indoor range). Perfect for light sensitive applications like museum and art gallery light monitoring. User customization allows you to set the frequency of readings and the ability to set thresholds for notifications and alerts by SMS text, email or voice call from the system.

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

  • Highly sensitive photodiode.
  • Good for light sensitive applications.

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