Cellular Sensor for Remote Monitoring

  • Cellular sensor for remote monitoring of temperature, water/flood, and more. Typical applications include:

    • Remote equipment monitoring
    • Remote failure prediction & condition-based maintenance
    • Remote flood or high water detection – holding ponds, overflow, etc.
    • Remote freeze monitoring
  • No gateway required – ideal for remote locations where standard sensors won’t work. Sensor node transmits via cellular link directly to cloud-based user interface.
  • Receive alerts by email or text
  • “Practically battery-free”™ – long battery life (up to 10 years, depending on application & transmission interval).
  • Multi-sensor transceiver node supports multiple, different sensors: temperature, pressure, water/flood, and many others.

Factors to Consider with Cellular Sensors

These sensors are ideal for remote locations where only a few sensors will be deployed in remote locations, and the application requires few transmissions daily.

  • No gateway needed as data is transmitted directly to software via a cellular connection. Because of this, a cloud-based user interface is required (either your own or Leap Sensor Manager).
  • Cellular connections require significantly more battery power. In addition, per-transmission cellular charges can become significant if sensors transmit many times per day.

Wireless Sensor Transceiver Node Specifications

  • Battery Life of 5 to 10 years in typical applications with 2 3.6V C-cells and two to five transmission per day.
    • Note: Sensors can act as data loggers, sampling multiple times per day with time-stamped readings sent in one packet via once-a-day cellular transmission.
    • Different enclosures available: Balance battery size vs. battery life.
  • Sensor-Reading Controlled Transmissions:  To extend battery life, the node can be configured to sample the sensor every hour and transmit all the readings once a day if all readings are below the alarm threshold.  If a reading is above the user-set alarm threshold, the node will transmit the sensor data immediately.
  • High-reliability 2-way communication with the sensor through the user interface:
    • Ability to name sensor, set sensor sampling time interval, set wireless transmit time interval, update firmware – all over-the-air.
  • Sensor data logging: When sensors do not receive an acknowledgement from the cellular network that transmission was received, data is stored & time-stamped until the connection is re-established.
  • Data Security – AES encryption.
  • FCC certified.

Leap Wireless Sensors User Interface Software

User interface software can be hosted on an on-site server, or the Leap SensorManager cloud-based software. Interface supports:

  • Logging in
  • User rights settings
  • Viewing & graphing sensor data
  • Data export to Excel or other spreadsheet
  • Setting email, text, and telephone alerts (cloud-based version)
  • Adding or removing sensors
  • Firmware updates over-the-air

See the Leap Sensors user interface for more detailed information.
