Monnit Monthly Newsletter - September 2019


See Facility Failures
Coming a Mile Away

What do boiler rooms, elevator shafts, and electrical panels have in common? Failure is no stranger to these areas. As your facility adjusts to the changing seasons, make keeping an eye on your building as easy as checking a text. Monitoring with Monnit allows you to see concerning patterns up to three months before failure takes its toll. Monnit can even help you with HVAC monitoring—please see the Application section.

G-Force Gets Real

Real-time response is here

The ALTA® G-Force Max/Avg. Sensor (ALTA GMA) features a groundbreaking ability to deliver real-time G-force alerts with details that aid analysis. It is now available and ready to help you with your security, machine health, or manufacturing needs.

Because of battery constraints, real-time response has been a goal that was just out of reach. The ALTA GMA overcomes this obstacle with clever engineering, giving you the best of both worlds: outstanding battery life, and true real-time response.

Imagine getting more than an alert that a fence is moving—the real-time data enables you to determine whether it is swaying with the wind, vibrating as someone climbs it, or falling as something levels it.

The ALTA G-Force Max/Avg. Sensor (ALTA GMA) is a turnkey solution that uses an accelerometer to determine which axis the force is on, as well as the maximum/average movement force.

Diverse Applications
The ALTA GMA provides detailed tracking for a wide range of industrial applications. Monitoring for unauthorized access, physical barrier integrity, unusual motor shake, wind turbine abnormalities and, assembly line irregularities are just some of the application possibilities for this broad-spectrum vibration meter.

Advanced Features

  • Instant G-force detection alerts with details for quickly assessing a situation
  • Three resolution modes: 2G, 4G, 8G
  • Four data rates: 6Hz, 12Hz, 50Hz, 100Hz
  • A high pass filter is available in all resolution modes and data rates (to remove gravity)
  • Provides the following for 3 axes (X, Y, and Z):
  • Raw, full-spectrum G-force maximum
  • Raw, full-spectrum G-force average
  • Magnitude maximum
  • Magnitude average
  • Sensor orientation status for excellent real-time awareness

The ALTA G-Force Max/Avg. Sensor is available in both AA and Industrial configurations. Discover more here.

Analyze G-force anywhere you need to with the ALTA G-Force Max/Avg. Sensor!

Remote HVAC Monitoring

Avoid downtime (& get real peace of mind)

Are you monitoring your heating and cooling systems to ensure efficient operation? What about identifying opportunities to preempt failure? Predictive maintenance can go a long way toward keeping occupants comfy and maintaining your reputation.

Do you know how often your HVAC system is running and if it is running within its correct specifications? If left unchecked, deviations can cause expensive repairs and downtime.

Using Monnit Wireless Sensors to test and remotely monitor your HVAC systems allows you to reduce utility cost by maintaining efficiency. You will also be empowered to schedule timely maintenance—mechanical failures can be a thing of the past. With the monitoring capabilities of Monnit Sensors, you can monitor every crucial component of your system and detect issues before they become costly. Keep your HVAC at peak with:

   Quad Temperature Sensors Monitor multiple temperature points in HVAC units
   Duct Temperature Sensors Monitor temperatures inside ventilation ducts
   Accelerometers Monitor HVAC motor and pump vibration levels
   Voltage Meters Monitor voltage to equipment and machinery

All Monnit Wireless Sensors come with free basic online monitoring, allowing you to view sensor information anytime from anywhere. Receive instant notifications via text or email if a user-defined sensor condition is met or exceeded.

Detect HVAC issues before costly failures occur: Learn more about wireless sensor solutions for heating and cooling system monitoring.
