Original Press Release:

ECD's New SensorWATCH(TM) Basic Offers Access to Powerful Technology with Easy Expansion Capability

Building on the successful launch of SensorWATCH™, ECD’s comprehensive system to mitigate issues associated with MSDs and ESD, the company has announced the availability of SensorWATCH Basic, a portfolio of task-specific Wi-Fi instruments and software that can be selected and implemented as and when required.  Exceptionally cost-effective, the scalable SensorWATCH Basic allows manufacturers to incorporate a customizable system for automatic and efficient monitoring of factory temperature and humidity conditions, the common factors for MSD defects and development of ESD.

SensorWATCH is a humidity and temperature monitoring system that provides customer audit protection, delivers 24/7/365 access to factory conditions and eliminates time-consuming manual record keeping.     Understanding the MSD and ESD challenges that face today’s electronics specialists, ECD has developed SensorWATCH to automatically monitor factory temperature and humidity to help avoid MSD defects and the adverse consequences of ESD on modern electronics products.

“With the increasing densities of today’s devices, moisture’s impact on reliability is an ever-present concern,” says ECD’s Craig Johnson, Product Manager for SensorWATCH.  “Sub-par solder paste performance, corrosion, delamination and internal cracking can all be caused by excessive moisture, so effectively measuring and monitoring moisture levels is essential to a standards-compliant, high-yield operation.”

SensorWATCH Basic’s task-specific instruments measure and record temperature and humidity, providing instant access to important factory data and eliminating the need for manual record keeping.  The SensorWATCH Wireless Setup software manages all of the Wi-Fi instruments via the facility’s Wi-Fi network and sends it to a designated PC for storing and graphing.  In the event Wi-Fi is temporarily disabled, the built-in memory in each instrument stores all data, providing error-proofing and ensuring data integrity and accuracy.

“The introduction of SensorWATCH Basic prioritizes flexibility, offering electronics manufacturers the ability to easily and affordably implement automatic temperature and humidity monitoring and expand as factory requirements change,” concludes Johnson.  “It’s a fail-safe, cost-effective technology for effective MSD/ESD mitigation with the assurance of 24/7/365 monitoring and control.”
