Sensicast Announces Wireless Mesh Temperature and Humidity Monitoring Solution
Complete Sensing Solution Provides Environmental Monitoring for Multiple Applications from Data Center to Industrial Motor Monitoring
NEEDHAM, MA - September 20, 2004 - Sensicast Systems, provider of wireless sensor networking products and solutions, today announced its Environmental Monitoring Solution (EMS), a complete end-to-end temperature and humidity monitoring solution. Designed to take full advantage of Sensicast's sensor networking platform and SensiNet networking software, the solution includes support for multiple gateways, vastly increasing the network's scalability and supporting mesh network installations that span multiple buildings, such as geographically distributed data centers or refrigerator monitoring in laboratories and hospitals. The sensors conduct real-time environmental monitoring and now have remote sensing probes for hard to reach, environmentally challenging or otherwise radio impregnable locations.
"Whether it is the difficulty of monitoring hard-to-reach places, or of integrating a sensing solution across several physical locations, we've been learning from our customers' unique monitoring challenges," said Paul Sereiko, CEO of Sensicast. "In response, we're bringing them improved monitoring for difficult environments from sites that may not be physically adjacent to one another. Sensicast now offers the most robust and reliable wireless temperature and humidity monitoring solution, all operating seamlessly on the industry's most flexible mesh sensor networking platform."
"In the past, monitoring the conditions of our critical motors was an error-prone process that didn't give us the whole picture," said Lloyd Pentecost, maintenance engineering supervisor at the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station. "With Sensicast's wireless platform, we get real-time motor data that allows us to do condition-based maintenance, saving us time and money. It is also a great start toward monitoring the parameters of other critical devices throughout the facility."
Sensicast's environmental monitoring solutions are appropriate in a wide variety of applications including data centers, hospital and grocery refrigerators, industrial motor cores, valuables storage facilities, and mold monitoring for schools. The products are available immediately from leading distributors such as MicroDaq.com or by contacting Sensicast directly at email@example.com.
