Wireless Transmitter Communicates With Existing Network
Vaisala has launched a new wireless version of its continuous monitoring system (CMS), which provides secure monitoring, alarming and reporting of temperature, relative humidity, CO2, differential pressure, contacts and other critical parameters in life-science applications.
The Vaisala HUMICAP wireless humidity and temperature transmitter HMT140 communicates directly with the user's existing network, so there is no need to purchase and install extra transmitters when installing a new sensor.
In addition, there is no need to install and maintain a dedicated network, which is a potential cost savings in initial outlay for this type of system. The on-board memory provides point-of-measurement recording by Vaisala's sensors, so data is protected from loss due to power failure or network downtime.
The HMT140 has a temperature operating range of -20 degrees Celsius to 60 degrees Celsius with display and -40 degrees Celsius to +60 degrees Celsius without display. The device can monitor up to two channels using either external or internal sensors. The transmitter has an IP65 rated enclosure making it suitable for cleanroom environments. Internal batteries come with a two-year life-span and the combined temperature/humidity sensor can be switched out to simplify calibration requirements.
This new transmitter is already available in North America and Europe and will be available globally in March 2013.
