TECHNOLOGY OVERVIEW

Ammonia Detecting Sensor - PX25-NH3 is a compact wireless device with an integrated Ammonia sensor with a simply aesthetical ceiling mount circular device. Monitor your facilities with this 3-in-1 sensor:

  • Ammonia level
  • Humidity level
  • Temperature level

This device doesn’t use Wifi or 3G for transmitting data, but transits the data to low-cost Sigfox IoT network. The data is available for integration with any third party platform The sensor is designed for a long lifespan running on battery and does not require maintenance during its lifetime (Ammonia module lifetime is 18 to 24 months).

Ammonia is a compound of nitrogen and hydrogen, invisible to the human eye and toxic, is formed due to an accumulation of chemical products used for cleaning.

Note: Requires a third-party platform to get the data, present or act on the data. The device only provides reading from the sensor.

This device could also incorporate other sensing elements.
