Wi-Fi Temperature Transmitter External 4-Wire Pt100 or Pt1000 Sensor
The Flex-Sky-ES is a wireless LoRa transmitter designed to work with external Pt100 and Pt1000 sensors. This transmitter takes advantage of LoRa technology, offering exceptional radio coverage, extending up to 10 kilometres in open areas.
Its unique two-part design allows for uninterrupted calibration changes to the measuring module. The Flex-Sky-ES functions as a wireless temperature transmitter, utilising an external Pt100 sensor connected to a spring-loaded connector within the transmitter. Please note that the sensor itself is not included with the device, but any 4-wire Pt100 sensor can be used.
Typically, the Flex-Sky-ES is paired with the Nokeval Cell-Sky-Link-RS485-3G base station, but it can also be seamlessly integrated into systems employing RS485 Modbus RTU.
Features and Specifications
This device is designed to be stored within a temperature range of -40 to +60 °C and can operate effectively in temperatures ranging from -30 to +60 °C. It is capable of functioning in humidity levels from 0 to 100% relative humidity and offers robust protection with an IP65 rating.
Constructed with plastic material, the measuring module is made from PC+ABS, while the radio module is crafted from PC. Its dimensions measure 383 mm x 33 mm x 61 mm, with a total weight of 151 grams, consisting of a 70-gram measuring module and an 81-gram radio module with an antenna.
The transmitter is powered by an LR6 1.5 V alkaline AA size battery, like the Energizer EN91, with a typical battery life ranging from 2 to 5 years, depending on the measurement interval and the amount of radio network traffic.
