Monnit Now Includes a Signal Booster with All 3G Gateways

Monnit 3G Gateways with Free 3G Signal Booster

 

SALT LAKE CITYJuly 16, 2019 — Monnit Corporation (monnit.com) today announced they are now shipping their 3G Cellular Gateways with an included 3G Cellular Signal Booster. The booster—which normally retails for $179 USD—will also be made available free of charge to current gateway users who have experienced less-than-ideal signal strength because of their deployment location.

“We are always looking for ways to improve the Monnit customer experience,” said Brad Walters, Monnit CEO. “Global demand for IoT solutions is outpacing the evolution of cellular networks so we have decided to include a signal booster with each 3G Cellular Gateway purchase. This will not only improve the data transfer experience for customers who are underserved by their current network, but also customers on the outskirts of tower range.”

Each of Monnit’s 3G Cellular Gateways also has a fail-over function allowing the gateway to operate on a 2G network when necessary—providing an additional connection safeguard for those with challenging cellular network circumstances.

No additional action is required to receive a free booster when placing a new order for one of Monnit’s 3G Gateways. If you are a customer experiencing less-than-stellar signal with an existing 3G gateway, please contact Monnit at 801-561-5555 to receive a free booster.

Monnit Releases New ALTA Advanced Vibration Meter

Monnit ALTA Advanced Vibration Meter

 

SALT LAKE CITYJuly 10, 2019 — Monnit Corporation (monnit.com) today announced the launch of the ALTA® Advanced Vibration Meter. The wireless meter features a configurable frequency measurement range from 0.4 Hz to 4800 Hz (24 RPM to 288,000 RPM). This vast range enables the sensor to do everything from identifying abnormal vibrations in high-RPM machines to tracking seismic impact on bridges and buildings.

“For the past ten years, Monnit has strived to anticipate our customers’ future IoT needs,” said Brad Walters, Monnit CEO. “The ALTA Advanced Vibration Meter is one of the most exciting devices we have launched—the applications are numerous and the precision of the data points produced helps organizations take preemptive action and gather valuable data for operational and end-of-life analysis.”

The ALTA Advanced Vibration Meter (ALTA AVM) is a turnkey solution that uses an accelerometer to track vibration and frequency on three axes. The US-manufactured sensor captures data for vibration frequency and velocity, displacement or acceleration. The meter also has the ability to report duty cycle as well as temperature, providing more key metrics to protect important assets and operations.

Advanced Applications
Uniquely capable, the ALTA AVM provides granular tracking for a wide range of industrial applications and civil infrastructure. The application possibilities run the gamut from monitoring the performance of motors and smart materials in cutting-edge manufacturing facilities to monitoring the vibrations caused by the subtle sway of a bridge.

Advanced Features

  • Simplified machine health monitoring
    • Low crest factor values indicate smooth vibration and good motor health
    • High values indicate the presence of potentially damaging harmonics or jarring forces
  • Configurable frequency range (examples)
    • As low as 25 SPS (0.6Hz to 9.375Hz)
    • As high as 12,800 SPS (300Hz to 4800Hz)
  • Adjustable reading intervals
  • Custom Rectangular, Hanning, or Flat Top window filters for enhanced data analysis
  • Temperature monitoring reporting in Celsius or Fahrenheit

Monnit Launches Waterproof Water Detection Puck Sensor

Monnit ALTA Water Puck Sensor

 

SALT LAKE CITYJuly 10, 2019 – Monnit Corporation (monnit.com) announced today the release of a fully enclosed, waterproof Wireless Water Detection Puck Sensor. The sealed puck gives users complete freedom to deploy wherever they need to detect water breaches.

The new puck type sensor is specifically designed to respond to the increasing demand for a convenient way to monitor for water intrusion in crawl spaces, sub-floor areas, basements, elevator shafts or anywhere water damage is a threat to valuable materials, machinery or electronics. The ALTA Wireless Water Detection Puck Sensor detects when water is present by completing the circuit between two probe points on the bottom of the puck sensor. The integrated magnetic power switch enables users to turn off the sensor when not in use, conserving battery life. The versatile sensor can be set to detect either the presence or non-presence of water.

When water is present, the sensor will immediately trigger a text, email or call alert—based on user-defined settings. The data is also stored in the iMonnit online system and can be reviewed and exported as a datasheet or graph.

ALTA Wireless Water Detection Puck Sensor Features:

  • Fully waterproof
  • Immediately detects presence or non-presence of water
  • Magnetic power switch conserves battery when the sensor is not in use
  • Free iMonnit basic online wireless sensor monitoring and notification system to configure sensors, view data and set text and email alerts

Monnit’s ALTA products offer exceptional wireless range (1,200+ feet through 12+ walls) and much stronger battery life than traditional sensors (12+ years). 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 online sensor monitoring with text and email alerting. For more information on Monnit’s ALTA sensors, gateways and remote monitoring software, call (801) 561-5555 or visit monnit.com/alta.

Monnit also provides products to OEMs and resellers 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 monnit.com/partner.
