Temperature and Humidity Sensor for Construction and Energy-Saving Applications



Wireless telemetry specialist Radio-Tech has developed Ecosense, a battery-powered temperature and humidity sensor for internal and external applications.


Ecosense is available in three versions: internal, external (reading both temperature and humidity), and surface (reading only temperature conducted through a wall). The sensor “chirps” every five minutes, transmitting its data to Radio-Tech’s RT:Wi5 data hub (or a modbus receiver); the information collected is then sent directly to the relevant server.


Aimed at the construction industry and energy consortiums, Ecosense was originally designed for the Energy Saving Trust in the United Kingdom. The product supplied to that body correlates measurements of internal and external temperature and humidity, along with wall surface temperature, to evaluate the insulation of new housing.


Since Ecosense’s transmitter is radio-based and needs no connection to mains electric power, the sensor can be installed very easily. The unit is powered by a lithium battery that lasts up to three years.
