Internet-supported wireless battery health sensors released by Utah-based Monnit Corporation
(Salt Lake City, Utah, USA.) – Monnit Corporation has released a new wireless battery health sensor. This is a DC analogue voltage meter designed to measure battery voltage at specified intervals and to wirelessly send the voltage readings to iMonnit, the online sensor monitoring system.
Monnit wireless battery health sensors can be used for monitoring battery levels in various applications such as boats, recreational vehicles (RVs), service vehicles, cars, all-terrain vehicles (ATVs), and motorcycles. Monnit’s wireless sensor platform and online monitoring software aim to provide an affordable, simple-to-setup, feature-rich solution that is ideal for both commercial and industrial applications.
Brad Walters, CEO of Monnit Corporation, said: “Monnit has received numerous requests for a wireless battery level sensor that works with our online sensor monitoring system. These customers want to receive alerts if a battery’s voltage reaches a certain level. If you couple this sensor with our low-cost cellular gateway, you have a great remote monitoring solution. For example, you can know if the battery in your boat will allow it to start before you get to the marina, and if not, take a spare battery with you. It’s a great solution that is the best value for knowing when a remote battery needs attention.”
Features of the battery health sensor:
- Small size (only 1 inch x 1 inch)
- Ultra-low power (at 1 hour heartbeat, sensor will last approximately 2 year)
- Voltage measurement range of 0-48 VDC
- ± 0.025 VDC Resolution
- Operating temperature range of -20 to 50°C (0 – 35°C recommended)
Monnit wireless battery health sensors compliment Monnit’s existing line of wireless sensors which are designed to detect and monitor conditions that are critical to business. Monnit’s wireless sensors communicate with iMonnit, the online data monitoring system, which aggregates sensor information and sends notifications via text or email if user-defined conditions are met or exceeded.
Monnit’s other sensors include: temperature, humidity, motion, water, door / window, light, vibration and voltage sensors.
Monnit also provides wireless sensors to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and reseller’s through OEMSensors.com, which allows for white labelling (private branding) of both the wireless sensor hardware and the online monitoring software.
