New Standalone System Provides a Low-Cost, Easy-to-Implement Temperature and Humidity Monitoring Solution
October 22, Akron, OH—Azova, Inc., an experienced data acquisition company enters the industrial test and measurement market with an innovative line of temperature and humidity monitoring and control systems. The first products in this line, the LTM-8201C and LTM-8203C, provide low-cost, standalone solutions with up to 32 input points connected on one to three data lines.
Azova systems leverage Dallas Semiconductors I-WireŇ Network technology to provide easy to install multidrop systems that can be instantly configured without any programming. They are ideal choices for a wide variety of industrial, commercial and agricultural applications where climate must be carefully maintained. Azova’s compact standalone systems are particularly well suited to these applications because of their ruggedized components and their ability to implement multiple sampling locations on a single wire over long distances.
Azova’s basic standalone system consists of a panel-mount controller with a simple push-button interface and a LED display. The LTM-8201C provides 16 points of 12-bit temperature monitoring. The slightly larger LTM-8203C provides 32-input points, 16 of which are used for temperature monitoring and 16 provide both temperature and humidity monitoring for a total of 48 data points. An RS-485 port is provided to enable interfacing with a PC for data logging and control.
Unlike other systems that require complex wiring schemes, Azova systems use simple prefabricated splitters to introduce new sensor points, making them easy and inexpensive to implement. Each sensor has on-board signal conditioning, a 12-bit digitizer, and a unique 64-bit address by which it is identified on the LTM-8201C/8203C display. The LTM-8201C uses dedicated temperature sensors. The LTM-8203C uses 16 temperature sensors, and 16 combination sensors that provide both a temperature and a humidity reading at each data point.
List price for the LTM-8201C is $395 and the LTM-8203C is $450. Splitters list for $7 each, temperature only sensors start at $16 each, and combination temperature/humidity sensors list for $69 each. Complete specifications are available on Azova’s website at www.azova.com.
