The JUMO Wtrans series is a system for wireless capture of measured values using wireless technology. The recorded values like temperature, pressure, humidity, or CO2 are transmitted wirelessly to the receiver of the Wtrans system from which it is then forwarded to processing measurement and control technology equipment such as controllers, automation systems, displays, or recording devices.
In Europe, the system uses radio frequency 868.4 MHz. In the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and elsewhere radio frequency 915 MHz is used. These frequencies are impervious to external interference and are especially suited for use in harsh industrial environments.
The range of applications for wireless temperature, pressure, humidity, and CO2 measurement is vast and varied. For example, these are applied in the food and pharmaceutical industries, in warehouses, in laboratories, in the heating and air conditioning, in refrigeration equipment as well as for monitoring of ambient air. The devices are used wherever traditional, hard-wired products are also used. This technology offers particular advantages, whether in difficult-to-access areas, mobile systems, or even on moving and rotating components. Wireless measurement technology reduces the effort required for mounting and installation during redesign or retrofitting and also saves materials in the process.
