Wireless sensor system provides web-based monitoring
The zSeries by Newport provides Web-based monitoring for temperature, humidity, and barometric pressure in critical applications and can transmit up to 300 ft.
The Newport zSeries wireless sensor system provides Web-based monitoring of Temperature, Humidity, and Barometric Pressure in critical applications. The compact wireless “End Devices” mount discretely on the wall in clean rooms, laboratories, and any remote facility.
The End Devices transmit up to 300 feet (without obstructions) to a “Coordinator” connected directly to an Ethernet network and the Internet. The wireless system complies with IEEE 802.15.4 operating at 2.4GHz.
With the zSeries system users can monitor and record Temperature, Relative Humidity, and Barometric Pressure over an Ethernet network or the Internet with no special software—just a Web browser.
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 PDA’s.
