Radio-Tech’s Ecosense is a battery powered, intelligent temperature and humidity sensor originally designed for the Energy Saving Trust to evaluate the insulation of new housing, although the sensors are suitable for all types of dwellings.
The sensor is available in three versions: internal, external (reading both temperature and humidity) and surface (reading only temperature conducted through a wall). The dual sense allows you to monitor temperature and humidity indoor or out as well as providing a solution for weather proof data collection.
The sensor chirps at regular intervals, typically every five minutes (unless a different specification is requested) and transmits the data to the RT:Wi5 data hub or Modbus receiver. This information is then sent directly to the relevant server.
Since Ecosense’s sensors are radio based and needs no connection to mains electric power, the sensors can be easily installed. The unit is powered by a lithium battery that lasts up to three years.
