Wireless sensors have a range of up to 300 feet
Sensaphone featured its first remote monitoring system fully equipped with wireless sensing capabilities during WEFTEC.08. The Sensaphone 2800 helps water and wastewater facility operators deal with remote monitoring challenges without the hassles of wiring. It monitors operating conditions such as temperature, power supply, alarms, excess humidity, water on the floor and intrusion.
The monitoring system is a stand-alone remote monitor and alarm notification system requiring no monthly fees. With four wireless and eight total external inputs, it helps protect equipment and facilities by alerting owners, facility managers, building supervisors and others to changes in critical environmental conditions.
The wireless sensors have a range of up to 300 feet, and an added repeater can extend the distance up to one mile.
