ALTA – AC Current Meter, AA 150 AMP
Perfect for measuring RMS current on an AC system upto 150 AMP, this sensor is suitable to use in current monitoring, usage, amperage, breaker panel, amp/hr, watt/hr, kW.
With industry-leading range, security & affordability, Monnit’s ALTA range of remote wireless sensors has set new benchmarks. Since their introduction in 2017, Monnit’s ALTA Sensors have been global game-changers for many industries including Food Service, Facility Management, Manufacturing, Logistics, Pharmaceutical & Medical.
This wireless AC Current Meter measures the RMS current of an alternating current (AC) system using a current transformer (CT) that wraps around the “hot” wire of a two wire (hot, common, ground(optional)) power system. The sensor reports Minimum RMS current, maximum RMS current, average RMS current, and amp hours to the iMonnit App. The iMonnit App is capable of generating watt hour or kilowatt hour readings as well.
This sensor is perfect for power metering, control system diagnosis, current supply measurement and the control of complex loads from electric motors. Other use cases are for charge integration and condition monitoring of rechargeable batteries.
Other common uses include:
Our sensors have paired exclusive RF technology with industry-leading power management to achieve the best battery life in the IoT industry. While the competition lasts anywhere from six months to two years, Monnit has made 10 years battery life possible with a pair of two AA batteries.
Our sensors provide upto 4 times the range of standard competitor wireless sensors, which means you don’t need as many Gateway’s and a much wider coverage area. Our sensor has a non-line-of-sight reach of 300 meters through upto 12 walls. This is all possible due to the most advanced Frequency-Hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS) technology that allows for superior interference immunity from other wireless devices.
The sensor has Monnit’s most secure embedded Encrypt-RF™ Security which consists of a 256-bit Diffie Hellman key exchange and AES-128 CBC encryption for all sensor data messages. Security is maintained at all communication points from sensor → gateway then gateway → software, then back again.
The user-customization settings allow you to set the frequency of readings with the ability to set thresholds for alerts via SMS text and/or email.
The sensor will store as many as 3,100 time-stamped messages if communication is disrupted for any reason (power outage, network disruption … etc). Once the communication is restored all messages will be delivered in chronological order.
