Monnit Pressure Sensors

We are pleased to release new wireless pressure sensors. The new pressure sensors can measure pressurized gas, liquid or vapor from 0-300 PSIG using a 5 volt pressure transducer.

Application of the Month

Sump Pump Monitoring

Monitoring Sump Pumps and Pits for Proper Operation.

Basement water problems can be caused by a multitude of issues ranging from high ground-water tables to thawing snow leaking through windows or the foundation. When these problems arise, it is common to have a sump pump and pit installed in a home or facility to remove water as it accumulates. However, pump motors can burn out and pump triggers can stick. How do you know if there is an issue with your
pump before it's to late?

Monnit provides a cost effective way to monitor the water level in a sump pit as well as sump pump operation. By using Monnit wireless sensor at the sump pit, you can be notified immediately via email or text message if water levels are too high in the sump pit, and when the pump motor turns on or off.

Monnit provides a low-cost, reliable, wireless monitoring solution that allows you to track and receive alerts for the following types of applications:

Water Detection Sensors Detect and notify if water in sump pit is above a set level.
Voltage Detection Sensors Monitor when pump motors turn on or off.

All Monnit wireless sensors come with free basic online monitoring, allowing you to view sensor information anytime from anywhere. Receive instant notifications via email or SMS text if a set sensor condition is met or exceeded.
