Monnit Temperature Sensors
Top Industry with
25-Month NIST Certification

Eclipsing its former certification by a full year, Monnit’s wireless temperature sensors are now available with an industry-leading 25-month certification from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), an agency within the U.S. Commerce Department.

Several years in the making, this advancement is a tremendous asset for firms relying on Monnit’s wireless sensors as part of their temperature tracking, quality, and regulatory compliance initiatives. This new certification also underscores Monnit’s continuous commitment to offering the industry’s easiest-to-use (and most dependable) remote monitoring platform.
25-Month NIST Certificate

“Monnit provides set-it-and-forget-it solutions; now that the certification period is doubled, companies have more time to focus on business with fewer interruptions,” said Brad Walters, Monnit CEO.

Each sensor is sent to a licensed metrology lab where it receives a Traceable Calibration Certification that verifies the sensor’s compliance with ISO 17025 and ISO 9000 standards. The Traceable Certificate indicates that the sensor is traceable to standards outlined by the NIST (click here for a list of included information). When the certification has expired, customers may submit their sensors to Monnit for re-certification.

For superior flexibility, Monnit’s NIST-certified Wireless Temperature Sensors are available in Coin Cell Powered, AA Battery Powered, and Industrial models. Each lab-certified variant provides:

  • A NIST certificate
  • Accuracy to +/- 1°C (1.8°F)
  • Optional 3, 10, 25, 50 and 100-foot external probes
  • A probe temperature range of -40°C to +125°C (-40° to 257°F)
  • 1,200+ foot wireless range reaches through 12+ walls
  • Free basic iMonnit® online sensor monitoring that includes text and email alerts

Currently, NIST-certified temperature sensors are in stock and can be purchased directly from Based on demand, certified-product orders may take 2–3 weeks to ship.

Worried about employee safety or unnecessary inefficiencies? What about reducing inventory loss to bolster your bottom line? This is when having eyes everywhere can come in handy.

Damaged inventory and employee safety issues occur everywhere—from small business storage areas to million-square-foot warehouses. Monnit Wireless Sensors can help you identify issues in these facilities as part of the process to decrease or eliminate problems altogether.

Running a warehouse takes a lot of time and energy. Warehouse management is often faced with various challenges that many companies fail to confront fully. Having to locate thousands of products and ship to your customers within a timely manner is no small task. And this task becomes difficult for any team to handle when you add to it the challenges of preventing damage to stored inventory, preventing damage to the building infrastructure, and monitoring the performance and safety of the team and the facility. In the past, these obstacles were difficult to manage, but thanks to Monnit, you have more help.

Monnit enables warehouse managers to monitor and track various conditions related to their facility, equipment, and inventory. For a long time, available solutions were very limited, expensive and difficult to use. Monnit's affordable remote monitoring system makes it easy for owners and managers to keep track of their business from anywhere online or via mobile app and receive alerts the moment there is an issue via text, voice, email, or through an on-site alert system.

ALTA Wireless AC Current Meter

Current Meter Overview & Tips on Getting Started

Overview of current meter options

In April’s Tech Tip, we looked at Monnit’s line of voltage meters. This month, we’re highlighting options for monitoring current.

Monnit offers three ALTA AC Current Meter models: low-current (20 Amp), medium-current (150 Amp), and high-current (500-Amp). The devices measure the root mean squared (RMS) of an alternating current (AC)—AC is the type of electrical power supplied to businesses and residences through wall sockets.

Every AC current meter comes with a clip that goes around the hot wire of a two-wire AC system and measures current using a current transformer (CT). RMS current readings are then transmitted to iMonnit, where the data can be evaluated.

Tips on getting started using AC current meters on iMonnit

Registering your device Sensor Label

iMonnit’s new look makes registering your new devices easier than ever. Use the camera on your smartphone to scan the QR code on your sensor and gateway. If you do not have a camera on your phone, or the system is not accepting the QR code, you may enter the Device ID and Security Code manually.

Chart View Viewing device details

Meter readings and details can easily be viewed by navigating to your Current Meter in the Sensors page. The Details View will be the first page you see upon selecting the device. Selecting the History tab allows you to view the meter’s data history as time-stamped data.

Adjust settings

Chart View To edit the operational settings for a sensor, choose the Sensor option in the main navigation menu, then select the Settings tab to access the configuration page. The default heartbeat interval is 120 minutes. While the heartbeat interval can be decreased, one thing to keep in mind is the effect this will have on battery life. Finish by selecting the Save button. For a more comprehensive guide on how to use these devices, please see the corresponding User Guide:
