Wifi Temperature Sensors

Wifi Temperature Sensors

Isn’t it amazing what technology allows us to do? New developments elevate and simplify daily tasks and open doors to new possibilities. Toady, WiFi technology allows us to connect with essentially any device or appliance that turns on and off and control and monitor it remotely. A popular example of this application is wifi temperature monitoring. In a personal setting, we can control and monitor our home thermostat from our smart phones. This remote, direct control over home temperatures allows for increased efficiency and reduced cost in home power.smart freezer controller

Save Time and Money

In an industrial setting, WiFi temperature transmitters (also called WiFi temperature sensors, monitors or loggers) save time and prevent down time and money loss by simplifying temperature control and preventing damage caused by extreme temperature fluctuations. The Smart Temperature Controller from Powerblanket connects with temperature control devices and allows users to monitor and control temperature settings from a smartphone or tablet. Users receive notifications when temperatures rise or fall outside of specified limits; this means you can address temperature issues before they lead to costly damage. Additionally, the Smart Temperature Controller features the Beacon Controls Portal, a simple to use interface that makes temperature monitoring from a computer, iOS or android device fast and easy (try it here with username “[email protected]” and password “1234”).

If you are looking to simplify and make the use of your temperature control devices more efficient, consider using the Beacon Smart Temperature Controller from Powerblanket.

Powerblanket Engineer Favorite #1

POWERBLANKET® ENGINEER FAVORITE

Over the years, Powerblanket engineers have used their ingenuity and Powerblanket technology to solve the temperature needs of many different companies throughout many different industries.  In the Engineer Favorite Series we will explore a variety of projects with unusual challenges and the Powerblanket solutions that saved time, money, and/or headache for our clients.

#1: No Off-the-Shelf Solution

Often, when your industry is unique, or your product very specialized, there is not an off-the-shelf solution for your specific temperature control needs.  In these cases, Powerblanket engineers take a hands-on approach to creating a custom solution just for you.

THE PROBLEM

Recently, an aerospace company had a carbon fiber mold with very specific heating requirements.  Because of the large mold, they needed to monitor and track the temperature at multiple points across the table to ensure that it did not get too hot.  In addition, this company used a custom-sized table with very specific power requirements.

 

CUSTOM CONTROL AND HEAT

Powerblanket designed and built the heating element and a control system that would monitor and log temperatures at four different spots on the heating element. The controller made it possible for the company to set a desired temperature. A USB memory stick contains the logged temperature data, allowing them to document the process and provide data if required by their customer.

This control system was something they needed, but it was outside of their area of expertise.  On top of that, they needed a large heating element which is difficult to come by. Powerblanket provided the exact and precise control needed, as well as the exact heating element required in the form of a flat blanket.

They can now type in the desired temperature and the blanket will take it up to that temperature. They need no second system for tracking and logging the temperature data. In the end, this Powerblanket custom heating and control solution simplified their process.

CUSTOM HEATING SOLUTIONS

Powerblanket engineers solve every kind of temperature problem from simple to very complex. Our expertise guarantees satisfied customers in a very short turnaround time, often in less than 14 days from design to delivery.
