Expanded line of IoT air quality and water leak sensors
L-com, an Infinite Electronics brand, has expanded its line of IoT air quality and water leak environmental sensors.
Every air quality sensor monitors one or more of alcohol, ammonia, dust and particulates, formaldehyde, humidity, hydrogen, hydrogen sulfide, LPG, ozone, refrigerant, smoke, sulfur dioxide, temperature, and TVOCs.
The new sensors help in the usage of IoT data collection to make process control more efficient and to reduce building and process costs. Applications for these sensors include commercial facilities, HVAC systems, factory floors, food processing and preservation facilities, laboratories, public restrooms, and smart buildings.
The water leak sensors are suited to any environment where damage from water leaks or flooding is a consideration, including communications rooms, equipment cabinets, server rooms, warehouses and storage areas. The wall-mounted devices are waterproof and have a long service life and a Modbus output.
The new sensors provide industry-standard sensing elements and low power consumption. They provide a four-pin, 2.54mm pitch header for device integration and can be mounted to a wall or a DIN rail.
The dust, gas and combination sensors provide quick response and short preheat times, with output types such as Modbus, TTL and 4-20mA, and screw-type terminal blocks for easy field connection. Up to seven pollutants may be monitored from a single device.
The new smoke and flammable gas sensors and the ammonia, hydrogen sulfide and odorous gas sensors feature analog (0-5V typical) and digital (TTL) outputs.
The new carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and ozone sensors and the alcohol, volatile organic and refrigerant sensors provide analog, digital (TTL), 4-20mA and Modbus outputs.
“Our new air quality sensors have high sensitivities to detect specific molecular concentrations or light levels. They transmit a signal to an I/O module or PLC that then reports the information to a PC or SCADA system. This allows system integrators, engineers and others to use IoT data collection to improve safety, make processes more efficient and lower building costs,” said Tim Houghton, L-com senior product line manager.
