E-Control Systems, a provider of wireless temperature monitoring solutions, has introduced a new line of Wi-Fi temperature monitoring sensors for foodservice, life science, biomedical and healthcare industries.
The new line of temperature monitoring sensors offers monitoring solutions at a cost lower than that of existing systems. It is a perfect match to E-Control Systems’ wireless sensor portfolio called IntelliSensor.
The power source of the Wi-Fi IntelliSensor line of sensors is batteries. The sensor works as per the industry specification 802.11 b/g network and can store data for a period of more than 24 hours. This data-logging characteristic of the sensor eliminates data loss due to temporary network connectivity delays or problems.
The Wi-Fi IntelliSensor line wirelessly transfers information via the current Wi-Fi network of customers to FusionLive, an enterprise server software that stores data in a SQL compliant database. The easily configurable sensors can be used to monitor wide range of temperatures, differential pressure, humidity, power interruption, compressor run-time, refrigerant leaks and opening or closing of doors.
E-Control Systems’ Vice President, Terry Fischer stated that the new Wi-Fi sensor series can be easily installed by the IT department, as it enables customers to use their current Wi-Fi network infrastructure. The novel sensor line improves the cost efficiency of the company’s IntelliSense solution, as it completely avoids the requirement of network cables, he said. It utilizes a high-powered RF radio for a powerful wireless connectivity and is comparable with Zigbee IntelliSensor product series of the company in terms of function, fit and form, he added.
