E+E Elektronik of Austria recently launched industrial remote sensors that enable users to monitor humidity, temperature and CO2 via Web access. The EE240 sensors conform to IP65 and were designed for setup in outdoor and indoor areas.

Up to three intelligent probes can be connected to each transmitter, but each probe operates independently and can be hot swapped. Remote probes allow the sensing head to be placed at a distance of up to 10m away from the transmitter. These features make the E+E wireless sensors especially suited for industrial applications that require sensors to be routinely recalibrated without affecting network operation. The measured values can be read directly off the display on the transmitter or read remotely using a web browser from any PC in the company network.

The base station features a digital Ethernet interface for effective connection to the network and data analysis. The integrated web server allows you to easily and individually configure the wireless sensor network from any PC without installing any software. The base station comes with four analog outputs for connection to your system controller.

A mobile measuring system with up to 500 transmitter stations can be built without having to install any wiring. In addition to this high degree of flexibility, coded bidirectional communication ensures completely secure data transmission.

The E+E wireless sensors conform to protection class IP65, making them suitable for use under demanding operating conditions as well as in outdoor applications. Wireless routers are available to expand the network and range or to bypass obstacles.
