The Lascar EL-WiFi-TH+ sensor measures the temperature and humidity of the environment in which it is situated. This high accuracy version is accurate to ±0.2˚C (0 to +60°C) and ±1.8%RH (10 to 90%RH @ +25°C). Data is transmitted wirelessly via a WiFi network to a PC and viewed using a free software package or on the EL-WiFi-Cloud. During configuration the sensor will search for an existing wireless network while physically connected to the PC. It can then be placed anywhere within range of the network. If the sensor temporarily loses connectivity with the network, it will log readings until it is able to communicate again with the PC application or Cloud (max 30 days at 10 second sample interval). The range of the sensor can be increased by using WiFi extenders.
The EL-WiFi-TH+ is a low powered battery device. When configured using typical transmission periods (e.g. once every 5 minutes) the sensor will operate for over one year (at room temperature). The battery can then be recharged via a PC or USB +5V wall adapter using the USB lead provided or can be permanently powered by the USB wall adapter.
The sensor is a freestanding unit, however, it can be attached to a wall or vertical surface using the bracket and screws / sticky pad provided.
Requires 802.11b compliant WiFi router/network. Compatible with Enterprise Networks from September 2013
The EL-WiFi-TH+ is suitable for a wide variety of applications, particularly where remote monitoring is important, these include:
- Environmental and weather monitoring
