Detection capabilities

Check the locations of actual sensor components for optimal installation

  • Temperature -40 ºC to + 85 ºC. Recommended to -20º C to +50 ºC due to primary battery specification. Accuracy ±0,3 ºC.
  • Humidity can be measured between 0 – 100 % RH. Accuracy ±5 %.
  • Accelerometer reports orientation or vibrations count in machine usage monitoring mode from 0 – 8G and 0 – 16G in high movement mode.
  • Barometric pressure can be measured between 300 – 1200 hPa. Absolute accuracy is ±1 hPa.Pressure sensor precision is ±0.005 hPa in high precision mode.
  • Ambient light sensing between 0 – 100 k lux. Light level measurement not calibrated. Only for indicative purposes.
  • Magneto-resistive sensor. Detects changes in a magnetic field from magnet or high DC current.

Default measurement and reporting

Event based reporting

  • Measures every 5 minutes:
    • Temperature when absolute change 0,5
    • Humidity when absolute change 2
    • Ambient light when absolute change 10000
    • Air pressure when absolute change 20
    • x, y, z-axis gravity
    • Count of changes in magnetic switch

Time based reporting:

  • Reports all measurement values every 1 hour

Machine usage mode:

  • Measurement frequency: 50Hz
  • Reporting interval: 1 minute – Only reports measurement periods where activity was detected
  • Detected vibration range: 128mG – 8G/16G
  • Battery life up to 5 years

Radio connectivity: Wirepas Mesh

Other default settings

  • Battery reporting interval 6 hours
  • Sensor is in routing mode

Changing the default settings

The following parameters are configurable remotely over Thingsee Operations Cloud

  • Measurement interval
  • Reporting interval
  • Event based reporting thresholds
  • Mesh network node role configuration
    • Routing
    • Non-routing
  • Enable/disable machine-usage-monitoring mode

Installation instructions

Remove battery security tab to power ON the device. The LED will flash once (red) when the device boots up.
