Wireless Sensor System Provides Web-Based Monitoring
Newport Engineering unveils its new zSeries wireless sensor system, offering Web-based monitoring of temperature, humidity, and barometric pressure in critical applications. The compact wireless “end devices” can mount discretely on the wall of clean rooms, laboratories, or any remote facility.
The end devices on the wireless zSeries sensor systems are able to transmit up to 300 feet (without obstructions) to a “coordinator” connected directly to an Ethernet network and the Internet. Compliant with IEEE 802.15.4 operating at 2.4GHz, the system enables users to monitor conditions over an Ethernet network or Internet without special software.
The device can trigger an alarm if variables go above or below a set point that the user determines. The alarms can be sent by email to a single user or to a group distribution list, including text messages to Internet-enabled cell phones and PDAs.
