You can’t make the right decisions without the right data. If you’re manually measuring temperature and humidity in your enclosures, you’re constantly working with old data. Rapid changes and extreme environments can cause critical electronic components to fail. You need near real-time data if you want to make decisions quickly and avoid system downtime.
The CSS 014 Smart Sensor and STEGO Connect put data at your fingertips remotely, in near real-time. With the CSS 014 Smart Sensor and an IO-Link system like STEGO Connect, you’ll obtain near real-time readouts of enclosure temperature and humidity, which reduces condensation risk and potential failure of critical electrical components. You’ll be alerted of potential environmental risks inside your electronics cabinet, giving you the power to make better decisions.
The compact Smart Sensor CSS 014 electronically records temperature and humidity and converts the measured data into a standardized analog 4-20 mA or a digital IO-Link signal. The converted value signals can be utilized or further processed by a control or monitoring unit, e.g. a PLC control. The Smart Sensor is suitable for installation inside and outside the enclosure, even in harsh environmental conditions as can be found in the wind power industry: in shielded outdoor areas and exposed to vibrations.
