lert, a leading provider of real-time, cloud-based environmental monitoring solutions designed to enable businesses to mitigate temperature and critical parameter related disasters, announces the release of their wind speed smart sensor adapter for Maximum Commercial Instruments’
anemometer. The wind speed probe is the second product in Temperature@
lert’s industrial series for customers seeking to monitor and receive alerts on environmental conditions in severe situations.
The wind speed probe allows one to be alerted before a radiation frost can even occur. Radiation frost occurs when a clear sky and calm winds (less than 5 mph) allow an inversion to develop, and temperatures near the surface drop below freezing. The measurement of wind speed is significant in the prevention of radiation frost, which causes economic damage when it destroys plants or hanging fruits. This probe not only monitors the wind speed for radiation frost but Temperature@
lert’s software allows for multiple threshold alerts, thus permitting the user to be able to set different ranges for monitoring a variety of frosts and freezes. The monitoring of wind speed accompanies the soil moisture probe released by Temperature@
lert last month.
Brett Niver, CEO of Irrigation Automation, thinks that "With the addition of Wind Speed as well as other environmental sensors, our IAS @Lert family of remote monitoring and alerting products can provide even greater value for the Agricultural market. These products are providing environmental data which both growers and researchers are using to produce their crops with much greater efficiency than otherwise possible. Our partnership with Temperature@
lert has enabled us to bring this technology in to new markets much more quickly than otherwise possible."
Harry Schechter, CEO and President of Temperature@
lert, believes that the "wind speed probe used in conjunction with Temperature@
lert's Cellular Editions allow for the continued success of our industrial smart sensor series, especially with the growing popularity of our soil moisture probe. Industrial users are very excited to see us expand in the agricultural market for smart sensors".
lert continues to lead the generation of smart plug-and-play sensors. Their devices instantly knows what sensors are connected and automatically reconfigures the cloud-based logging and alerting system to display the new sensor properly. This allows the user to connect any sensor to any port, any time.
