RL5000CO2 – CO2 Monitoring

CO2, Temperature and Humidity Radio Transmitter

The Hanwell 5000CO2 radio telemetry transmitter is specially designed for temperature and CO2 monitoring. The units are housed in IP65-rated cases, making them ideal for use in harsh environments.

The unit is equipped with a custom-designed LCD to display current readings, alarm conditions, and battery life remaining. Wireless data transmission is carried out to a local networked server for historical analysis and real-time alarms. These have been employed for a large number of applications, including laboratory incubator monitoring. A permanent 12 V DC power supply provides power to the transmitters.
