"The flexibility of the Ekahau RTLS solution is further underscored by the applications made possible with our new temperature and humidity sensing tags," said Arttu Huhtiniemi, vice president of Product Management at Ekahau. "Not only can our solutions enable the existing Wi-Fi network to do tracking of critical assets and people, we can further leverage an organization’s network infrastructure to ensure that proper temperature and humidity ranges are maintained with our wireless sensors. By improving the ROI of the Wi-Fi network and eliminating costly cabling requirements of wired applications, Ekahau’s temperature and humidity monitoring tags lower the cost of remote monitoring of environmentally sensitive areas."
Unlike competing solutions on the market, Ekahau’s two new temperature sensor tags – the TS1 and TS2 – have extended cable probes that can be installed inside the environment where temperature is being measured, such as a freezer or refrigerator. The TS1 tag has a single probe, while the TS2 is a dual-probe tag. Depending on the probe used, the tags’ temperature range is from -200 degrees to +150 degrees Celsius (-328 degrees to +302 degrees Fahrenheit).
The HS1 humidity sensor tag includes on-board sensors that measure relative humidity (RH) ranging up to 100 percent, and temperature ranges of -40 degrees to +85 degrees Celsius (-40 degrees to +185 degrees Fahrenheit).
The TS1, TS2 and HS1 tags all offer audible and visual alarm indicators on the tags themselves and allow for programmable alarm limits and local data logging. With continuous data logging, the measurement data will not be lost even in the event of a network outage. All the sensor tags also incorporate the ability for the sensors to receive acknowledgments from the Ekahau servers and a smart re-try capability in case of data transmission failures.
