AVTECH Releases Digital Fluid Temperature Monitoring Sensor

AVTECH Software (News - Alert) (AVTECH), which develops and manufactures hardware and software solutions designed to protect today’s advanced data centers and other facilities, has released its new Digital Fluid temperature monitoring sensor designed to provide real-time temperature values from -67 to 257 degrees Fahrenheit and/or -55 to 125 degrees Celsius for fluids or solutions that need to be monitored.

Officials with AVTECH said that this is a dynamic sensor that provides temperature values every two seconds and feeds temperature data back to AVTECH’s RoomAlert or TemPageR environment monitors.

Company officials said that the Digital Fluid Temperature Sensor consists of a temperature probe encased in a sealed tube containing Propylene Glycol.

This is a colorless liquid with extremely low freezing and high boiling points.

According to company officials, its non-conductive nature makes it a perfect environment for monitoring the temperature of fluids in extreme environments such as labs that monitor vaccines, plasma, IV bags and/or other specimens, aquariums, refrigeration devices or other locations where fluid temperature must be monitored and/or regulated.

Company officials pointed out that when used with AVTECH’s RoomAlert and/or TemPageR environment monitors, the Digital Fluid Temperature Sensor will feed temperature data back to the ID box in real-time for data logging, graphing, alerting and automatic corrective action.

Recently AVTECH announced that it has released the RoomAlert Relay, an add-on component for their Room Alert 4E/ER environment monitors, which allows low voltage devices to be turned on or off automatically based on changing environmental conditions, remotely over the network.

Officials with AVTECH said that the Relay is designed to connect directly into the Light Tower Connection Port on the back of any RoomAlert 4E ID Box.

Company officials said that the new RoomAlert Relay includes four low voltage outputs with visible status lights.
