Wireless solutions: introducing MCC’s WiFi-502, WLS series

 

The WiFi-502 is the perfect solution for wireless data acquisition for a variety of temperature and humidity monitoring applications. From Measurement Computing Corporation (MCC) (Norton, MA), the WiFi-502 is 802.11b compliant and has an on screen data display which simultaneously saves data directly to a PC.

Available from Adept Scientific (Letchworth, Herts), the rechargeable WiFi-502 measures the temperature and humidity of the environment in which it is situated. Data is transmitted wirelessly via a WiFi network to a PC and viewed using the software included. During configuration the sensor will search for an existing wireless network while physically connected to the PC. It can then be placed anywhere within range of the network. If the sensor temporarily loses connectivity with the network, it will log readings until it is able to communicate again with the PC application (max 60 days at 10 second sample interval). The range of the sensor can be increased by using WiFi extenders.

This WiFi-502 is a low powered battery device, which, when configured using typical sampling periods (eg once every 60 seconds) the sensor will operate for over one year. The battery can then be recharged via a PC or USB +5V wall adapter using the USB lead provided. The battery is safely charged when the unit is operating between 0 to +40°C (+32 to +104°F). It is protected against charging outside this temperature range. Sensor readings may be inaccurate during battery charging.

The software installed on the PC will allow set-up, data logging and data review. Set-up features will include sensor name, °C/°F, sample rate and high/low alarms. Once configured historic data can be viewed via the graphing tool or exported into Excel. This sensor stands alone on a horizontal surface and comes with a wall bracket that can be screwed onto a wall or flat surface.
