Original Press Release:



New PC-Based System Provides Turnkey Solution for Temperature and Humidity Monitoring and Control



December 16th, Akron, OH-Azova, Inc., an experienced data acquisition company enhances their innovative line of industrial test and measurement systems with a new PC-based temperature and humidity monitoring and control system. This versatile system utilizes a custom software package to provide a wide variety of data acquisition, data logging options, and to web-enable any system for remote monitoring and control.

Azova systems leverage Dallas Semiconductors I-Wire® Network technology to provide easy to install multi-drop systems that can be instantly configured without any programming. They are ideal choices for a wide variety of industrial applications where climate must be carefully maintained, such as chemical and oil storage, food storage, and food production, as well as diverse agricultural applications including grain silo monitoring and livestock management. Azova's PC-based systems are particularly well suited to these applications because of their rugged components, their ability to implement multiple sampling locations on a single wire over long distances, and their web-based remote control capability.

Azova's custom software solution permits connecting any PC to their LTM-8000 Series data acquisition system controllers via a standard RS-232 port. The LTM-8000 provides 16 input points per channel, each of which provides both temperature and humidity monitoring for a total of 32 data points per channel and a total of 128 data points for the system.

The Azova system automatically detects each installed sensor at start-up, and provides real-time data display either graphically or numerically. It includes robust data logging functions, and can be used to generate Excel reports, or html reports for remote access via any web-browser. Programmable high and low alarms are provided to indicate out of range data.

Multi-drop networks are easily and inexpensively implemented with Azova measurement systems. A single cable (or a network of cable segments) up to 200 Meters long is attached to each channel on the system controller. Unlike other systems that require complex wiring schemes, Azova systems use simple prefabricated splitters to introduce new sensor points. These splitters are easily screwed into compatible cable sections, and specialized sensors are in-turn screwed into the splitter. Each sensor has on-board signal conditioning, a 12-bit digitizer, and a unique 64-bit address by which it is identified.

List price for the Azova custom software package is $250. The LTM-8000D lists for $495 and the LTM-8000T is $495. Sensors, splitters, and cables are not included. Splitters list for $7 each, temperature only sensors start at $16 each, and combination temperature/humidity sensors list for $110 each.

Complete specifications for the entire line of Azova temperature and humidity monitoring systems are available on their website at azova.com. For more information, or for help with configuring your system, please contact an Azova sales engineer by calling 330-535-8685 or e-mailing sales@azova.com.
