Wireless Data Collection

The Transmitter uses Wi-Fi to send multi-parametric sensor data to the Petasense Cloud. Configure the frequency of data collection remotely through Petasense Web & Mobile apps.

Battery or Continuous Power

The Transmitter can be wirelessly powered by four AA batteries. The batteries are field replaceable and can last 2-3 years under standard configuration. Alternatively, the Transmitter can be externally powered using Power over Ethernet (PoE).

Connect sensors on PLCs to the Internet

Plug in PLCs to the Transmitter using it’s Ethernet port. It supports Modbus over TCP to extract and wirelessly send rich PLC data to the Petasense Cloud for asset reliability and optimization.

Easy Installation

The Transmitter can be easily installed virtually anywhere. Place it outdoors near the equipment or inside an asset enclosure. It can be mounted using an adhesive or on a DIN rail.

Compact and Rugged

At just 4″ in height and width and 1½″ in depth, the Transmitter can be installed in the tightest of spaces. The enclosure is made of polycarbonate and the connectors are made of corrosion-resistant, stainless steel making it suitable for most industrial environments.

Enterprise-grade Security

The Transmitter connects to the Cloud using TLS 1.0 over a TCP connection. Client certificates are used to identify the device on the server. AES-256 ciphers are supported for communications. Access to the Cloud is secured using TLS 1.2.

Industrial Certifications

The Transmitter is designed to function in a variety of industrial environments. Its water and dust proof (IP67) design makes it suitable for outdoor use. It has also been pre-tested for Class 1 Div 2 for use in hazardous environments.
