Environment Monitoring System with 1-Wire Sensor Interface
ENVIROMUX-1W

Product Highlights

  • 2 RJ11 connectors for daisy-chaining up to 24 single-reading 1-wire sensors
  • 2 digital inputs for contact closure
  • USB port for 3G modem
  • Power over Ethernet option
  • Designed and Manufactured in the U.S.A.

The ENVIROMUX® Environment Monitoring System with 1-Wire Sensor Interface monitors critical environmental conditions, such as temperature, humidity, liquid water presence, power, intrusion, and smoke. When a sensor goes out of range of a configurable threshold, the system will notify you via email, web page, network management (SNMP), and/or SMS messages (via external USB 3G modem).


The system supports 24 single reading 1-wire sensors in any combination - temperature, humidity, dew point, thermocouple or digital inputs-and 2 separate digital inputs.
