Salt Lake City, Utah – July 3, 2018 – Monnit Corporation ( today announced new optimizations for ALTA industrial solar sensors. Monnit’s engineering team has designed in some new hardware improvements that allow ALTA Industrial sensors with the solar power option to work more efficiently when used under typical indoor lighting. Testing shows that indoor lighting present for 25% of the day yields 125% of the sensor’s required daily operating power at 10-minute heartbeats. The optimized solar cell hardware, coupled with the included rechargeable battery and ALTA’s recent firmware enhancements, allow for seemingly endless battery life (only limited by the degradation of the battery cell).

Features of the ALTA Industrial Wireless Sensors with Solar Power Option

  • 5VDC/30mA Solar Panel
  • 600mAh Rechargeable 3V Battery
  • Solar Efficiency Optimized for High and Low Light Operation
    (Outdoor or Indoor Use)

ALTA industrial sensors offer four times the wireless range (1,200+ feet, non-line-of-site) and much stronger battery life than traditional sensors (10+ years on a single 3VDC battery). ALTA products also use Monnit’s Encrypt-RF™ bank level security, featuring 256-bit exchange and AES-128 CTR for all data messages.

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 ALTA sensors, gateways and remote monitoring software, call (801) 561-5555 or visit

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
