Product Description

Monnit industrial wireless dry contact sensors can be used to detect contact between two wired contact points. This sensor can be used with an external mechanical switch or a contact plate to alert the user via SMS text and/or email when the contacts touch or a switch is triggered.

Monnit Industrial Sensors come in an IP65, NEMA 4X, CE rated, sealed, and weatherproof enclosure. They are powered by a single, replaceable, Industrial grade 3.6 V battery (included).

An optional solar powered version is also available. The solar powered version includes a Lithium Iron Phosphate rechargeable battery in conjunction with a solar power cell to keep the battery charged and at optimal capacity. If there is no light present at the solar cell, the battery alone could continue to power the sensor for up to 5 years.


Notes:  WARNING: Use caution when interfacing to Monnit and ALTA Dry Contact Sensors. Any external AC or DC Voltages WILL DAMAGE the electronics of the wireless sensor. Monnit is not responsible for troubleshooting, replacing or reimbursing damages incurred by disregarding this warning.

Product Features

  • Senses immediate contact between wires.
