iMonnit HX: Faster Sensor
Data Reporting

The new iMonnit® HX platform allows sensors to report data as quickly as every minute. Previously, Monnit Wireless Sensors could only be configured for heartbeat intervals of 10 minutes or greater in the iMonnit Premiere software.

iMonnit HX enables Monnit Wireless Sensors to have up to 1,440 heartbeats per day for a near-continual flow of valuable data, which is ideal for mission-critical operations.

  • Faster data reporting yields insight on valuable metrics, such as critical temperatures or machine bearing performance, to optimize operations and processes.

Manufacturers can use iMonnit HX to alleviate costly repairs or economize operations by better regulating heavy machine usage. Smaller operations, such as pharmacies, can use one-minute heartbeats to closely monitor substances vulnerable to spoilage through exposure to minute temperature variations.

iMonnit HX offers users the choice of three pre-paid sensor heartbeat transmission tiers of 250,000, 1.3 million, or 5.5 million credits. Credits are only utilized when faster heartbeats are necessary.

iMonnit HX Features
  • User-selectable heartbeat interval from 1–9 minutes
  • Per-sensor selection function—designate which sensor(s) within a network get quicker heartbeats
  • Compatible with every Monnit wireless sensor type
  • Easy-to-use online calculator to determine the ideal tier
  • Configurable low-credit alerts
  • Conveniently purchase credits in the iMonnit portal

Always-on Wireless Tilt Detection Sensor

The ​ ALTA® Wireless Tilt Detection Sensor tracks the position (pitch) of mission-critical machinery, access barriers, and heavy equipment arms. If the sensor detects an abnormal position caused by unauthorized access or a stuck mechanism, supervisors are instantly alerted via text, email, or call.

Monnit’s Tilt Detection Sensor automatically reports, in degrees, when moved beyond configured angles. With a measurement accuracy of 0.5°, the sensor can identify if a boom arm is breached or a safeguard has failed.

  • The USA-made sensor can also be configured to monitor the raise/lower time of machinery such as an arm or bay door, enabling users to identify seizing hydraulics or motors.

Applications include commercial parking gates, railroad safety systems, oil rig mechanisms, and farming equipment. Initial users have reported that the Tilt Detection Sensor helped protect people and assets by identifying ailing equipment.

As an “always watching” device, the battery-powered Tilt Detection Sensor eliminates wiring into existing power systems for a fast,15-minute install and greater reliability. The sensor has a battery life of 4+ years (2 AA batteries).

Additional Features

  • Wireless range: 1,200+ feet non-line-of-sight (through 12+ walls)
  • Security: Encrypt-RF® bank-level security on all wireless transmissions
  • Measurement range: 0–180°

Sump pump with ALTA Advanced Vibration Meter (non-leaded)

Sump Pump and Pit Monitoring

The right sump setup is just the start—ensure proper operation with Monnit Wireless Sensors.

Spring thaw and upcoming April showers turn basements and crawl spaces into major facility maintenance concerns. Is your sump pump ready for seeping snowmelt and rising groundwater?

Pump motors burn out. Pump triggers stick.
How will you know if there is an issue before it's too late?

Monnit Wireless Sensors economically monitor sump pit water levels and pump operation. With the award-winning Advanced Vibration Meter, you can identify abnormal pump operation and fix it before failure. Monnit’s sensors will alert you immediately via text, email, or call if water levels are too high or when the pump motor turns on or off (based on user-defined configuration).

With Monnit’s reliable remote monitoring solutions, always know:

 Sump pit water levels  Water Detection Sensor alerts you if water rises beyond your preset level.
 Sump pump power status  Voltage Detection Sensor triggers an alert if electricity is absent—ideal for hard-to-access pumps.
 Machine health & proper operation  Advanced Vibration Meter identifies and notifies you if excessive vibration is present, which may point to degrading components. You can also track when the pump runs and for how long.

All Monnit Wireless Sensors come with free basic online monitoring, allowing you to view sensor information anytime from anywhere.

Stay on top of meltwater to prevent costly issues.
