Monnit Introduces New Wireless Three Phase Current Meter

Salt Lake City, Utah – March 15, 2018 – Monnit Corporation (www.monnit.com) today, announced a new wireless three phase current meter to help companies better track and understand power usage. The ALTA Three Phase Current Meter measures RMS current (AC) by using three 150 Amp current transformers (CTs) that wrap around the wires of a three phase power system. The sensor reports Minimum RMS current, maximum RMS current, average RMS current, and duty cycle for each phase and the combined amp hours of all three phases to the iMonnit system. The iMonnit system is also capable of generating watt hour or kilowatt hour readings, based on user specified RMS voltage.

ALTA wireless three phase current meter

Features of the ALTA Three Phase Current Meter:

  • Measures amp hours, max RMS current, min RMS current, average RMS current, and duty cycle for each phase and combined amp hours from all three phases
  • Three 0-150 Amp current transducers
  • Industrial rated, waterproof sensor enclosure
  • Capable of generating Watt Hour or Kilowatt Hour readings using iMonnit
  • Data logging for accumulated amp hour readings
  • Can notify based on current levels
  • Simple and safe installation of current/power measurement hardware, no rewiring required

 

Monnit’s ALTA products offer four times the wireless range (1,000+ feet, non-line-of-site) and much stronger battery life than traditional sensors (10+ years on two AA batteries). ALTA products also use Monnit’s new Encrypt-RF™ bank level security, featuring 256-bit exchange and AES-128 CTR for all data messages.  Other features include; onboard memory for data logging if sensor is out-of-range, and over-the-air updates that allow products to be updated remotely if new fixes or features become available.

All of Monnit’s wireless sensors include free basic iMonnit online sensor monitoring with SMS text and email alerting.  For more information on Monnit’s sensors, gateways and remote monitoring software, call (801) 561-5555 or visit www.monnit.com.

Monnit also provides products to OEM’s and Reseller’s through the IoTvantage™ business partner program which allows for volume discounts and private branding of both the wireless hardware and online monitoring software. Learn more at www.monnit.com/partner.

Monnit Releases ALTA Serial MODBUS Gateway and ALTA Industrial Quad Temperature Sensor

Salt Lake City, Utah – March 7, 2018 – Monnit Corporation (www.monnit.com) today, announced the release of two new ALTA wireless devices; the ALTA Serial MODBUS Gateway and ALTA Industrial Quad Temperature Sensor.

Monnit's ALTA Serial MODBUS Gateway

The ALTA Serial MODBUS Gateway (SMG) acts as a data concentrator for Monnit’s ALTA long range wireless sensor networks. This device allows you to connect up to 50 wireless sensing devices, per gateway, to your existing serial MODBUS RS-232C and RS-485 sensing and control infrastructures.

Features of the ALTA Serial MODBUS Gateway:

  • Communicates with MODBUS RTU / ASCII Serial Protocols.
  • Supports RS-232C / RS-485 Interfacing.
  • Integrates into your existing backend monitoring systems.
  • NEMA 4X / IP66 Rated Enclosure.

Monnit's ALTA Industrial Wireless Quad Temperature Sensor

The ALTA Industrial Wireless Quad Temperature Sensor uses four individual sensor probes to measure and track temperatures with reliable accuracy. Perfect for monitoring a variety of temperature critical applications such as food coolers, HVAC systems and data centers.

Features of the ALTA Quad Temperature Sensor:

  • Four (4) independent temperature probes.
  • Probe temperature range of -40°C to +125°C (-40°F to +257°F).
  • Accurate to ± 1° C (± 1.8°F).
  • Increased accuracy by user calibration to ± 0.25° C (± 0.45° F).

All of Monnit’s ALTA Wireless Sensors include free basic iMonnit online sensor monitoring with SMS text and email alerting.  For more information on Monnit’s sensors, gateways and remote monitoring software, call (801) 561-5555 or visit www.monnit.com.

Monnit also provides products to OEM’s and Reseller’s through the IoTvantage™ business partner program which allows for volume discounts and private branding of both the wireless hardware and online monitoring software. Learn more at www.monnit.com/partner.

Which Monnit Software Platform is Right For You?

Monnit Software
In addition to the numerous wireless sensors, gateways and other devices offered by Monnit to connect your devices to the Internet of Things, Monnit also provides several software solutions to view all the data being collected. Gathering data is only half of the equation, the other half is a software solution for viewing and analyzing this information so you can optimize systems or respond to issues in a timely manner.

The most widely used software option is the iMonnit Online solution which is accessible by any internet enabled device through the Monnit web portal. iMonnit is a secure cloud-based monitoring and notification system dedicated to Monnit Wireless Sensors and Gateways. The system allows for complete configuration and customization at a sensor, local network, or client wide level. iMonnit allows for management of sensor data as well as the ability to setup alerts via SMS text or email to one or many people. iMonnit Basic is included for free with all wireless sensors, providing basic features for you to configure and monitor your sensors online. iMonnit Premiere allows for enhanced functionality of your wireless sensors and includes an advanced software feature set, all starting at a low annual cost of $39.00 a year. Some of the additional Premiere features include:

  • Unlimited user accounts for system configuration, monitoring and notifications
  • Sensor heartbeats (check-ins) down to 10 minutes
    • Timed sensors (i.e. temp) can be user set to check against alert thresholds up to 256 times between heartbeats
    • Triggered sensors (i.e. motion, door/window, etc.) record data as it happens, regardless of heartbeat
  • Advanced sensor configuration options
  • SMS text and email notifications sent from the system when sensor thresholds are exceeded
  • Unlimited data storage
  • Sensor Mapping Tool
  • iMonnit API commands for integrating into 3rd party applications

iMonnit Express PC Software is an alternative to online monitoring that runs as a standalone PC application without the need for an internet connection. This system is meant to provide a simple and effective way for customers to manage a smaller network of sensors using on-screen alerts and email notifications to remotely signal the user. iMonnit Express allows for the same basic sensor network configuration and customization as the online version and can be used with most Monnit wireless sensors and gateway products.

iMonnit Enterprise is available for large organizations with specific data usage requirements. It provides the same feature set as the iMonnit Premiere online system while allowing the organization to host and maintain their own sensor data, on their own server, behind a company firewall. iMonnit Enterprise also allows for a virtually unlimited number of sensors and gateways and sensor heartbeats down to 1 second (limitations are based on company’s server resources).

If you have your own software platform and would like to use Monnit wireless products, Monnit has a few options available. APIs/Webhooks can be used from within iMonnit to push sensor data to your software. If you want to completely integrate Monnit wireless sensor networks into your application, Monnit Mine enables true IoT functionality by enabling integration of Monnit wireless sensors networks with existing or custom software systems by providing a translation layer between the two.

Note: In order to use Monnit wireless sensors with iMonnit Express, iMonnit Enterprise or Monnit Mine,  wireless gateways will need to be unlocked, allowing them to be directed to your custom host or IP address.  iMonnit Enterprise, Premiere, and MINE can also be white-labeled to match your company’s branding and colors.
