Monnit wireless voltage meters are capable of measuring the voltage off another device, battery, or sensor. This sensor is capable of measuring voltage up to 5 VDC by connecting the leads on the sensor to the positive and ground terminals of the device being measured.
Examples of interfacing devices include, but are not limited to: Strain Gauge, Pressure Transducer, RTD, Thermistor, or Thermocouple, Piezo Electric sensors, Photoresistor, Industrial Accelerometer, any kind of variable resistor, 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 sensor is really just a “voltage observer”. Cannot be used for AC voltage measurement.
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.
WARNING: Use caution when interfacing to the Monnit Wireless Voltage Meter.Negative voltages, any kind of AC Voltages, or DC Voltage exceeding 10V WILL DAMAGE the electronics of the Monnit Wireless Sensor. Monnit is not responsible for troubleshooting, replacing or reimbursing damages incurred by disregarding this warning.
* Actual range may vary depending on environment.
** Battery life is determined by sensor reporting frequency and other variables.
