The AC Voltage Detection Sensor notifies of the presence or absence of electricity. It is intended for use on devices using supply power from 24 - 500 VAC. Not intended for voltages higher than 500 VAC and also not intended for use with DC sources. Perfect for HVAC systems, sprinkler systems, sump pumps and any other type of electrical appliance monitoring. This sensor triggers on the state change from presence to absence of voltage and vice versa. The data is displayed as either "No Voltage" or "Voltage Detected".
ALTA sensors offer 3 to 4 times the range of standard sensor platforms, extending non-line-of-sight reach to an exceptional 1,200+ feet through walls (12-14 walls typical). Using Frequency-hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS) also allows ALTA sensors to have better interference immunity from other wireless devices.
Superior power management provides ALTA sensors with almost twice the battery life of Monnit’s standard wireless sensors.
Integrated on-board data storage allows ALTA sensors to store data messages if communication to a wireless gateway is disrupted (power outage, Internet outage, or out of range). Messages that can’t be delivered will be time-stamped and stored in memory (up to the last 512 messages) until communication with the gateway is restored, at which point the messages will all be transmitted.
Over-the-air updates allow ALTA products to be updated remotely if new fixes or features become available.
Monnit ALTA 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 8-10 years.
* Actual range may vary depending on environment.
** Battery life is determined by sensor reporting frequency and other variables.
