Wireless, Install Anywhere Mini Sensor Released

Pressac Mini sensors with packaging

UK electronics manufacturer, Pressac Communications, has released a new range of mini, wireless, low energy sensors for monitoring temperature, humidity, dry contact and door or window opening and closings.

The small, unobtrusive sensors can measure these things to get an instant view of the conditions in each room or zone within a building, transmitting data wirelessly using the EnOcean Protocol.

The data captured can feed into an existing building management system or using Pressac’s smart gateways, sensor data can be made securely available in formats such as MQTT and JSON.

 

Temperature & humidity

Sensors in the new range include Pressac’s temperature sensor, which provides efficient monitoring of ambient temperature and is also available with a combined humidity sensor to measure and report both temperature and relative humidity.

The dry contact sensor is designed to detect and report change in any volt free dry contact output. Operating on the EnOcean, the sensors offer fast, easy and reliable push-wire connection of two wires, reporting open/close state of dry contact output.

 

Doors & windows

Finally the door and window sensor is a contact sensor which senses when a door or window is opened or closed. Once triggered it can activate a wide variety of potential responses to improve security and reduce energy waste.

Jamie Burbidge, Product Manager - Digital Solutions at Pressac said: “The non-invasive, easy to install mini-series sensor range has been designed to complement Pres-sac’s existing offering both aesthetically and functionally.

"The new discreet and compact sensors are all available with optional security in every EnOcean supported territory. We are continually extending our turnkey capabilities into other smart building solutions to make building and energy management more economical and functional.”

 

Peel & stick

All sensors offer a fast, peel & stick installation option with optimal positioning and no wiring constraints, so are ideal for retrofitting into existing buildings with minimal disruption. The back mounting plate also allows for fixing with screws if required.

The mini-series is powered by ambient light from the surrounding environment and can be supplied as solar only or solar with battery backup for robust operation in all lighting levels.
