3HIGH DATA MODE: One TX retries and 6 hour periods between configurations/ACK TX. One month DC with Glacier Series in this mode.
4All life figures are typical calculated performance when operating at room temperature with good communications – 66dbm or better signal strength. Operating at maximum operating temperature or without any communications can reduce battery life by as much as 50%
Flexible external antenna and robust internal connections. HiQ eSystems® is designed rugged for use in demanding environments; perfect for hypersensitive and extreme use applications.
Range and Connectivity
HiQ eSystems® features 900Mhz* frequency technology, which, when compared to WiFi- enabled sensors, provides higher transmission power, faster communication, and lower transmission loss, all with greater customization options. (*900 Mhz frequency is not available in all countries)
HiQ eSystems® environmental temperature and humidity monitoring sensor systems provide best-in- class wireless range and connectivity. Incorporating proprietary networking protocols, HiQ eSystems™sensors feature dense network operation (point-to-point, point-to-multi-point) and localized, corporate, or global roaming device configurations. All HiQ eSystems™ devices are remotely configurable.
HiQ eSystems® radio technology supports wireless line-of-sight ranges of up to 28 miles at 10 Kbps and wireless line-of-sight ranges up to 4 miles at data rates of up to 200 Kbps, which makes HiQ sensor systems flexible enough for extended-range applications or high data rates. The network is easy to set-up and use. Data access and changes to functionality are controlled via four assignable management tiers.
Smart Data System
Food temperature monitoring, both in storage and transportation environments, is critical for the intelligent management and safety of your organization’s perishable assets and adherence to food safety guidelines.
HiQ eSystems™ Smart Data provides:
- Sampling of temperature data at user configurable intervals
- Storage and transmission of data according to customer-defined parameters
- Custom alerts for out-of-spec environmental conditions
- Increased data transmission rates when alarm or change conditions are exceeded
- Allows for remote re-configuration of sensors
- Data accessibility via customer’s server, web page, PC, and mobile device
- Press of a button remote upgrading of gateway firmware
- Stores sample data during Power/LAN/Internet outages for subsequent transmission when services return
- Up to two months storage capacity of temperature data sampled every ten minutes
