VIGIL+ wireless thermocouple sensors are available with a hardwired thermocouple or K-type connector to support various thermocouple types and ranges.
The hardwired thermocouple option measures temperatures up to 400°C (752°F).
The K-type connector with Probe includes a needle probe that measures temperatures up to 400°C (752°F). Thermo-couplers are water and weather proof so if there is a requirement to measure temperature in moist or wet areas or in soil thermo-couplers should be used.
VIGIL+ wireless humidity sensors measure the Relative Humidity (RH) in an area. RH is a crucial factor when growing pants in greenhouses or poly tunnels.
RH that is too high interferes with plant transpiration. It also causes condensate droplets on the ceiling and walls which reflect light. This can reduce the amount of light transmission into the greenhouse for plant growth.
Too little RH also can stress plants by accelerating transpiration to more than what the roots can take up and translocate. The solution to these and other humidity concerns is a program of systematic humidity management.
VIGIL+ wireless water sensors alert detect when there is water present, preventing potential property damage that results from flooding or leaks. Place this sensor anywhere flooding or faulty plumbing could cause a problem. This sensor can also be used to detect a lack of water, allowing you to know when a container is nearly empty.
An optional spot detection probe can be added to the end of the water detection wire. The spot detection probe can be positioned and mounted at a set distance above the ground eliminating false alarms.
VIGIL+ wireless Co2 sensors measure the amount of Co2 in an area. Studies have shown that higher concentrations of atmospheric carbon dioxide affect crops in two important ways: they boost crop yields by increasing the rate of photosynthesis, which spurs growth, and they reduce the amount of water crops lose through transpiration.
Plants transpire through their leaves, which contain tiny pores called stomata that open and collect carbon dioxide molecules for photosynthesis. During that process they release water vapour.
As carbon dioxide concentrations increase, the pores don't open as wide, resulting in lower levels of transpiration by plants and therefore increased water-use efficiency.
VIGIL+ wireless open/closed sensors provide information on the status of doors, windows, cabinets, etc.
Knowing if doors or windows are open is an important feature.
Cabinets that contain secure items or tools may also need to be monitored.
VIGIL+ wireless liquid level sensors use a solid state, continuous (multi-level) fluid level sensor for measuring levels in water, non-corrosive water based liquids and dry fluids (powders).
As Vigil+ motion sensors use infrared they are non-obtrusive and can be installed in confined areas without attention being drawn to their use.
VIGIL+ wireless motion sensor is ideal for detecting if unwanted guests are present. Infrared motion detectors can prove a useful guard agains theft and damage. VIGIL+’s wireless motion sensors use an infrared sensing technology to accurately detect movements made by people or even animals such as rats and other vermin.
VIGIL+ wireless CO sensors are ideal to detect early warnings of carbon monoxide. Carbon monoxide poisoning is a real threat to confined or restricted areas that have machinery in use. Any area that have fire or combustibles present are also a potential dangerous generator of Carbon Monoxide.
Agricultural buildings often have machinery running inside them such as mills, saws, forges etc… They are also likely to have paraffin heaters or log burners in areas where people work. Monitoring the CO in these areas is vital to ensuring the safety of workers and staff.
VIGIL+ wireless dry contact sensors detect when there is contact between two wired end points.
They can easily be integrated into existing switches or contact plates.
The sensor can be configured to detect both closed and open loops alerting if contact is made or broken making them ideal to monitor for open gates and hatches on farmland.
