Monnit Honored as 2024 IoT Sensor Company of the Year

IoT Breakthrough recently presented Monnit with its 2024 IoT Sensor Company of the Year Award. We won because of the combined strength of our innovative IoT platform, industry application versatility, and data accessibility.

As part of a leading market intelligence and recognition platform, IoT Breakthrough seeks to honor excellence in Internet of Things (IoT) technologies, services, companies, and products.

The judges’ review process required Monnit to answer how it breaks through the crowded IoT industry to create ideal solutions for our customer’s challenges.

The critical evaluation process and award are an independent, third-party validation of our mission to keep our valuable customers’ needs and experience at the forefront by providing a proven IoT platform.

A 2023 IoT Excellence Award Goes to Monnit

Monnit wins two IoT awards

Last year, our work and case study with Chicagoland’s Magnetic Inspection Laboratory (MIL) captured the attention of Technology Marketing Corporation (TMC), a global, integrated media company, and its partner, Crossfire Media.

So much so that they recently presented Monnit with their 2023 IoT Evolution IoT Excellence Award.

The MIL plant maintenance team has achieved greater readiness and efficiency by integrating a Monnit Manufacturing IoT Monitoring Solution featuring our ALTA® Sensors, Gateway, and iMonnit Software into its operations.

Monnit Receives European Cold Chain Standard EN12830 Certification

Monnit sensors are certified for Europe's EN12830

Our ALTA® Wireless Standard Enterprise and Industrial Temperature Sensors are certified for Europe's EN12830 cold chain traceability standard. Now, transporters and logistics managers of temperature-sensitive goods, primarily in the European food and pharmaceutical industries, can use our ALTA Standard Temperature Sensors to prove they officially comply with EN12830 regulations.

Maintaining temperatures in food and pharmaceutical cold chains is critical to prevent spoilage and meet safety regulations. Our data-logging ALTA Temperature Sensors are used by businesses worldwide to accurately record, verify, and validate temperature wherever their perishable goods go.

This 2018 European standard specifies technical and functional characteristics that our ALTA Standard Temperature Sensors with three-foot leads must meet to monitor and data log the condition of goods during transportation, storage, and distribution.

According to EN12830, these sensors primarily comply with the following:

  • Class 0.5 accuracy of +/- 0.5°C from -40°C to 50°C
  • Class 1.0 accuracy of +/- 1°C from 50.1°C to 85°C
  • Data-logging integrity, data traceability, and software data security specifications
  • Autonomous operation and independent power supply
  • Sensor housing durability and manufacturing requirements

The EN12830 certification is in addition to our National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) certification and Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) and Title 21 Code of Federal Regulations Part 11B compliance. Every ALTA Wireless Standard Enterprise and Industrial Temperature Sensor Monnit sells in the UK will have an EN12830 certificate and a NIST accuracy statement.
