ALTA Wireless Voltage Meter - 5 VDC


ALTA wireless voltage meters are capable of measuring the voltage off another device, battery, or sensor. This sensor is capable of measuring voltage up to 5 VDC by connecting the leads on the sensor to the positive and ground terminals of the device being measured.
Examples of interfacing devices include, but are not limited to: Strain Gauge, Pressure Transducer, RTD, Thermistor, or Thermocouple, Piezo Electric sensors, Photoresistor, Industrial Accelerometer, any kind of variable resistor, any kind of sensor that outputs a voltage, etc. If the device being measured is passive, the user must supply their own excitation voltage, as the Monnit sensor is really just a "voltage observer". Cannot be used for AC voltage measurement.

ALTA - Leading Enterprise Grade "Internet of Things" Solutions

ALTA sensors offer 3 to 4 times the range of standard sensor platforms, extending non-line-of-sight reach to an exceptional 1,200+ feet through walls (12-14 walls typical). Using Frequency-hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS) also allows ALTA sensors to have better interference immunity from other wireless devices.

Superior power management provides ALTA sensors with almost twice the battery life of Monnit's standard wireless sensors.

  • Coin cell sensors typically last 3+ years.
  • AA and Industrial sensors typically last up to 12+ years.
ALTA products employ Monnit's new Encrypt-RF® Security (256-bit Diffie Hellman key exchange and AES-128 CBC encryption for all sensor data messages), so security is maintained at all communication points from sensor to gateway, gateway to software, then back again.

Integrated on-board data storage allows ALTA sensors to store data messages if communication to a wireless gateway is disrupted (power outage, Internet outage, or out of range). Messages that can't be delivered will be time-stamped and stored in memory (up to the last 512 messages) until communication with the gateway is restored, at which point the messages will all be transmitted.

Over-the-air updates allow ALTA products to be updated remotely if new fixes or features become available.
