Wireless sensors

October 1, 2008





Newport’s wiSeries wireless sensors provide Web-based monitoring of temperature, humidity and barometric pressure. Capable of transmitting over 1,000 meters outdoors without obstructions, its radio is a high-power IEEE 802.15.4-compliant transmitter operating at 2.4GHz. The coordinator/receiver connects directly to an Ethernet network or the Internet and serves active Web pages to display and chart data. Designed for demanding industrial applications and harsh outdoor environments, the sensors’ electronics are protected in a weatherproof, polycarbonate NEMA 4/IP65-rated housing. The sensors come in battery-operated and AC models.
