February 17, 2014 - By monitoring pressure, temperature, and humidity in liquid and gas applications, SensoNODE Low Energy Wireless Monitoring Sensors help to predict problems and prevent equipment downtime. Sensors operate on coin cell battery and can be attached to equipment being monitored via standard NPT ports or through quick connect coupling. With max range up to 150 ft from sensors, SensoNODE app wirelessly connects iOS device to one or more sensors using auto recognition and displays live data.

Parker's New Low Energy Wireless Monitoring Sensors Work with iOS Mobile App to Provide Pressure, Temp, and Humidity Data in Equipment and Facility Applications

Press release date: February 6, 2014

MINNEAPOLIS, MN — Parker Hannifin Corporation, the global leader in motion and control technologies, introduces a low energy wireless sensor platform for monitoring pressure, temperature, and humidity in liquid and gas applications.  Parker’s SensoNODE Low Energy Wireless Monitoring Sensors and SensoNODE mobile iOS application are the first in a family of products the company is launching in 2014.  The SensoNODE family puts data in the palms of users’ hands, helping to predict problems and prevent downtime in a variety of equipment and facility applications, thus saving time and money on costly labor or repairs.

Developed with the mobile worker in mind, Parker’s wireless sensors eliminate the constraints of traditional wired sensors in everyday applications.  Small in size and easily installed, the wireless sensors offer a sealed sensor housing to facilitate sensor location in challenging environments where a wired sensor platform is impractical or impossible.  There are three individual sensor options that can monitor pressure, temperature, and humidity in a wide range of liquid and gas applications.  Markets include medical devices, laboratory and analytical equipment, food and beverage, hydraulic and pneumatic equipment, and industrial manufacturing processes. 

The sensors can be attached to the equipment being monitored via either standard pipe thread (NPT) ports or through the use of a quick connect coupling.  They operate on a common coin cell battery for extended periods of time.

Designed in concert with the sensor, the mobile app – called “SensoNODE” – will be available as a free download from the Apple® App Store.  With a maximum range of up to 150 feet from the sensors, the easy-to-use mobile app connects an iOS device (iPhone®, iPad®, or iPod touch®) wirelessly to one or more sensors using auto recognition.  Live data can be displayed, and the app’s available diagnostic tools allow for the creation and display of trending graphs or user-defined alert notifications.  Up to five discrete sensor inputs can be monitored at a glance on the mobile device.

According to Parker Quick Coupling Division (QCD) Business Unit Manager Mario Calvo, Parker’s wireless monitoring sensors reflect the company’s ongoing commitment to innovation.  “Through Parker’s investment in R&D, we discovered new methods of creating very low power sensing elements.  They enable cost-effective wireless sensing solutions that are unique in the marketplace today,” Calvo said.  “Moreover, they allow users to gather data at points in their devices, equipment, and facilities that were previously cost prohibitive, labor intensive, or not feasible given the existing sensor technology base.”

The Parker Quick Coupling Division sells the SensoNODE Low Energy Wireless Monitoring Sensors.  For more information on this product or to download a product bulletin, please visit or contact the Parker Quick Coupling Division at 763-544-7781.

With annual sales of $13 billion in fiscal year 2013, Parker Hannifin is the world's leading diversified manufacturer of motion and control technologies and systems, providing precision-engineered solutions for a wide variety of mobile, industrial and aerospace markets. The company employs approximately 58,000 people in 49 countries around the world. Parker has increased its annual dividends paid to shareholders for 57 consecutive fiscal years, among the top five longest-running dividend-increase records in the S&P 500 index.

Temperature sensor

Dear sir,
we require non contact temperature sensor range 0 -250 degree centigrade with 4 to 20 mA output .
Thanking you

0-250 C non-contact temperature sensor

Dear Sir-
All of our wired and wireless temperature sensors require media contact. Unfortunately, we do not offer non-contact temperature sensors. Our upper limit on temperature is 85C for wireless sensors and 125C on wired sensors. Finally, our wired sensors have a 0-20mA, 3 wire out put. It does not look like our product offering will meet your requirements, but if you have any further questions or I can be of further assistance, please feel free to contact us at
