Monnit has merged the Internet of Things with Power over Ethernet (PoE), bringing tremendous insight to smart buildings and modernized facilities with the new PoE•X Sensors.
PoE•X Sensors plug into a building’s PoE infrastructure and remotely monitor critical systems and/or infrastructure for hazards, such as water leaks. This data provides smart building operators with tremendous data to economize operation by conserving resources while enhancing comfort. If a monitored variable exceeds specified thresholds, a user is alerted via text, email, or call.
Monnit’s PoE•X Sensors use the same PoE cable to both receive power and transmit data. This two-in-one capability maximizes space utilization and addresses needs for a broad layout and high-density sensor networks, such as those needed for server rooms and data centers.
No PoE infrastructure in your building? Plug the PoE•X Sensors into your Ethernet network and then power the sensors with the optional AC power supply.
Plug the PoE•X Standard Temperature Sensor into your facility’s Power over Ethernet (PoE) network to accurately measure temperatures from -40°C to +125°C (-40°F to +257°F). With a precision thermistor, it’s accurate to ± 1°C (± 1.8°F) or ± 0.25°C (± 0.45°F) with your calibration.
Remotely monitor temperatures from -50°C (-58°F) up to +370°C (700°F) with the PoE•X High Temperature Sensor. It uses a glass-coated platinum resistance temperature detector (RTD) transducer and alerts you via text, email, or call when a preset temperature threshold is crossed.
Use the same Power over Ethernet (PoE) cable to power the PoE•X Low Temperature Sensor and transmit its data. The sensor can help you monitor ultralow freezer temperatures and other environments within temperatures from -200°C to 0°C/-328°F to 32°F at +/- 0.5°C accuracy.
Remotely monitor internal HVAC system temperature with the PoE•X Duct Temperature Sensor while maintaining a sealed environment. These sensors use a negative temperature coefficient (NTC)-type thermistor with a UL-listed plenum cable to measure temperatures from -40°C to 150°C/-40°F to 302°F.
The PoE•X Thermocouple Sensor has a hardwired connector to measure high-temperature applications from -100°C (-148°F) to 400°C (752°F). It’s ideal for monitoring temperatures for commercial ovens, industrial production processes, electric power generation, furnace performance, and more.
Monitor air moisture percentage and the temperature in any room or environment with the PoE•X Humidity Sensor. It measures the relative humidity (RH) with a +/- 3% accuracy (between 10–90% RH), temperature, and dew point in facilities like greenhouses, grow houses, and museums.
The PoE•X Water Detect Plus Sensor monitors the presence or non-presence of non-combustible liquids, mainly water, with a 3-foot probe-capped leaded wire in areas that may be prone to pooling or flooding from weather and plumbing leaks. The probe’s electrical circuit minimizes false alarms.
Run the PoE•X Water Rope Sensor’s conductive polymer rope along foundations, walkways, walls, pipes, and other water or liquid-prone areas. The sensor detects water intrusion, plumbing leaks, or pooling water via its 10-foot rope. You can add 10-foot extensions for up to 100-feet of detection.
The PoE•X Dry Contact Sensor detects if contact is made or broken between two wired points. It can monitor product volume, physical access, mechanical actuation, and equipment use. For example, the sensor can detect a valve’s turn, a generator powering up, and a tank’s propane level.
Ensure doors, windows, and lids are closed, and people follow lockup procedures with the PoE•X Open-Closed Sensor. Configure a switch and trigger magnet to report if a door is open or closed. It senses if a cooler or freezer door has been open for excessive time or a window opened after hours.
The PoE•X Motion Detection Sensor senses motion and movement using a passive infrared (PIR) element. You can be alerted to temperature changes by people or animals moving through the viewing area of up to 15 feet and 80 degrees. Increase security, coordinate occupancy, and protect assets.
