Protimeter HygroTrac - Wireless Environmental Monitoring
The Protimeter HygroTrac is a simple and cost-effective system for monitoring environmental conditions remotely in buildings.
The Protimeter HygroTrac system measures and logs data parameters such as relative humidity, temperature and moisture in materials.
Small HygroTrac wireless sensors are placed in a building and readings are sent to the data acquisition gateway. The data acquisition gateway is connected to a dedicated and secure web server via ethernet, GPRS/GSM Router or phone line. The measurements can then be viewed from any internet connection using a secure password to access results.
Automatic alarms give early warnings to potential moisture related problems in buildings
Avoid costly job site visits and view data from your desktop
Easy and professional job report presentations
Use long term monitoring to help diagnose moisture problems in buildings
Transmit data at user-selected intervals to central data acquisition gateway up to 150 ft (46 m) away.
Multiple sensors (up to 600 per gateway) can be installed_all transmitting back to one or more data acquisition gateways.
Frequency of reporting can be adjusted between 1 min to 24 hours.
% moisture content in wood and % WME in other building materials.
|Built-in screw fasteners allow moisture measurement and attachment of the sensor to building materials such as wood, drywall and plaster.
Data Acquisition Gateway
Data collection point receives and stores data from all wireless measurement sensors. Information is then sent to a secure web server.
Data is sent via:
Telephone land line (*user dial out options)
Up to 600 sensors can report to a gateway
*Use of dial up connections will require an ISP account.
Web Data Service*
Live or near live access to data.
Name individual sensors to specify location within the building
Data view includes graphical display of readings
Secure access with ability to create multiple users at different security levels
Download data in text file format for use with spreadsheets and other applications
Alarm settings. Warnings via email and cellular phone text message
Customized report generation.
*Use of this service will encounter a data access fee automatically billed to a credit card. Contact Merlin Lazer for latest rates.
