Frequently asked questions
Typically our systems are used to measure temperature, humidity, energy, flow, doors, plant status and pressure.
In reality we can provide sensors to measure just about any environmental condition either directly or by using third party specialised equipment with 4-20mA or voltage outputs.
Our sensors can be supplied with full UKAS traceable calibration certificates from our in house calibration laboratory.
We are a UKAS ISO 17025:2017 accredited for temperature and relative humidity.
Our accreditation allows us to complete on-site calibration to the UKAS standard.
We can measure temperature to accuracies of ±0.1°C with resolutions of 0.01°C and can provide UKAS factory calibration with fully traceable certificates.
Yes. Our wireless transmitters are long range and are designed to work over large and complex structures. Follow this linke for more information of temperature monitoring for warehouses and temperature controlled storage.
Requirements to monitor temperature are going to come from your industry sector, legislative, audit and your customers requirements/demands.
There are requirements in food and medical applications for temperature monitoring - in manual or electronic formats.
We are seeing more & more request for continuous monitoring as audits become more stringent in their demands.
The benefits of continuous temperature monitoring over manual readings are;
|Continuous Monitoring||Manual Checks|
|If set points are exceeded alarm notifications are sent. Therefore you know about a problem and have a chance to resolve it before stock is lost.||With 2 or 3 readings per day, you won't know you have a problem until a reading is taken. Once aware you're unsure how long you've had the issue for!|
|Readings are recorded by the system every minute. The readings can be seen live and historical data can be viewed in a graphical format.||Hand written staff records are not often captured in any applications where analysis can be completed.|
|Calibrated sensors and automatic readings give confidence that the reading recorded is the actual temperature at that point in time.||Transposed numbers on written records and staff making other simple mistakes when recording data occur frequently.|
|Data is recorded 24/7/365 and your warned if you have an issue, not matter whats happening in the business.||Staff forget to take manual readings and those taken are rushed, who does the reading when the business is closed?|
|Though there's a cost for our systems there're no on-going fees, calculated over the lifetime of the system the cost per day per sensor are minimal.||How much does it costs to take manual records and document there properly, just once or twice per day?|
You network the base station by plugging the D3 into a network port (or directly into a router), using an Ethernet cable that is supplied.
You or your IT department, can assign the base station a static IP. If this is beyond your knowledge then don't worry, network mode can be chosen which allows your network to automatically assign the details.
The set-up is documented in the manual, as well as support documentation on our website, our specialist support team are available for more assistance.
Yes, there are couple of options.
- Operate the the base station as a standalone system - live data can be viewed via its display. However no alarm notifications can be sent via email and a laptop/computer will need to be connected directly to see reports and graphs.
- Connect using a 3G or 4G router - the router will require a data contract, however using this method allows remote access and to view live/historic data in graphical and report format and get email alarms. There are a number of providers for 3G & 4G routers that offer a solution.
The D3 can be accessed remotely BUT your IT department needs to activate port forwarding through your network to do this.
Port forwarding is totally within the remit of your IT personnel, our system has no ability to manage this on your behalf.
When creating system users you have the capability to restrict their access rights. Users can see and do what you choose them to be able to do.
For the UK and Europe we manufacture wireless monitoring systems that use 433Mhz, the benefit over 2.4Ghz is the radio transmissions can travel further meaning less repeaters are required on large sites.
We do have versions of the system using 2.4Ghz for Europe, for the rest of the world we have 2.4Ghz with different output powers (depending on your legislative directives).
The D3 & D3 Medical versions have a 12 hour battery back-up installed as standard. These system can continue to record data even in a power loss situation.
If repeaters are installed then our optional back-up module will be required for these.
Depending on the system variant you can add up to 150 sensors.
These sensors can be of any type and can be added as and when you need to make changes due to legislative requirements or business needs.
Our systems are designed to grow and offer a single point of contact for continual monitoring needs.
