RF Code recently introduced the R155 five-year temperature and humidity sensor tag. Based on a power saving technology developed by RF Code, the sensor combines long life with a 10-second beacon rate.
This new sensor differs from other wireless sensors, which typically sacrifice beaconing rate to preserve battery life. Because data center environmental conditions can change on a dime, with consequences that affect cooling and power as well as asset viability, the ability to know immediately about a change is critical. So the key is to combine both long life and fast beaconing in one sensor.
"Our customers depend on timely information in order to run their data centers most efficiently," said Chris Gaskins, Vice President of Product Development, RF Code. "Therefore, we wanted to make sure that extending the battery life didn't come at the expensive of the beacon rate. Our new R155 temperature-humidity sensor achieves the twin goals of long life and real time monitoring. This gives customers the most affordable, accurate solution available."
The R155 sensor is based on the same active RFID technology that underlies all RF Code sensors, eliminating the need to use cabling for deployment. Such wire-free installation means deployments aren't restricted by wiring requirements. The sensor is part of RF Code's environmental monitoring solution, which fully automates the capturing of sensor data, including temperature, humidity, fluid detection, power usage, air pressure and more.
About the R155 Temperature-Humidity Sensor Tag
RF Code's R155 Temperature-Humidity Tag monitors and reports the relative humidity and ambient temperature in its immediate environment. It is designed for use in environmentally-sensitive areas, such as IT data centers. Periodically reporting its unique ID along with the sensor data observed by the tag, the R155 is designed for use in combination with RF Code fixed and mobile readers. The tag is designed for years of reliable performance in an operating range from -4?F to +158?F and 0% to 95% RH. The R155's form factor ensures clear signal transmission in high-density deployments such as data centers. Featuring a low-battery alert, the tag will continue to monitor humidity and temperature for at least three months following this alerting.
The five-year temperature-humidity tag is available in April.
