How our dry contact sensors work

A dry contact sensor can be used to monitor any piece of equipment that has a volt-free, dry contact output, or reed switch. The reed switch will either be open or closed, meaning the appliance status will be on or off, and will alert you when that status changes. By adding our dry contact sensor to the switch, you can automatically monitor the status of your equipment in your IoT platform, BMS system or other software.

Features

  • Reports dry contact status changes in real-time and status
    updates every 15 minutes
  • Small, discreet sensors simply stick to a wall or side of the equipment
  • Connect to the device using a push-wire connection of two wires
  • Solar-powered using ambient room light. Optional battery back-up for periodic low-light conditions – battery typically last up to 10 years
  • Transmit data wirelessly and securely – using AES-128 encryption – via EnOcean wireless protocol, which uses internationally approved, licence-free ISM bands
    • 868 MHz for Europe (RED)
    • 902 MHz for North America (FCC) and Canada (IC)
    • 928 MHz for Japan (ARIB specification)
  • Manufactured in the UK to high-quality and high-safety specifications, they are subject to rigorous testing procedures.
  • Dimensions: 76.5 x 28 x 17.5 mm (approx)
  • Packaging unit: single (min. 25 pcs)
