Monnit Announces a 525 Percent Memory Increase for ALTA Wireless Sensors

wireless sensor memory increase

SALT LAKE CITY – Nov. 19, 2019 – Monnit Corporation ( announced ALTA® Sensors can now store 3,200 data points in case communication with the gateway is interrupted. Up from 512 data points, sensor memory now persists through power cycles—if internet connections or power falter, data remains preserved.

“This significant increase in capacity and the resulting impact for our customers underscores the dedication of Monnit engineers,” said Brad Walters, Monnit CEO. “These driven individuals have an innate desire to enhance our products constantly. Delivering more capacity at the same price ultimately means more peace of mind for our customers.”

With a two-hour heartbeat, ALTA Sensors can now store up to 266 days of data instead of 42. For a ten-minute heartbeat, the sensors can store 22 days of data vs. 3.5.

Which ALTA Sensors have the upgrade?

The upgraded capacity is available on all ALTA Sensors manufactured since August 2019. To bring the upgrade to sensors manufactured before August, Monnit is creating an over-the-air (OTA) toolkit. This toolkit will also allow customers to apply other OTA updates and upgrades as they become available—the expected launch for the OTA toolkit is Q1 2020.

Persistent Memory Protects Data

Increased capacity is only one aspect of the improvement. The persistence of the 3,200-message memory means that even if batteries are depleted during a communication outage, the sensor will transmit stored data points to the gateway once fresh batteries are installed—preventing any data loss.
