For smarter homes and buildings: WEPTECH introduces energy optimizing sensor ROBIN
Cologne, May 2019 – Germany-based OEM, WEPTECH elektronik GmbH, unveils the newest addition to its temperature and humidity sensor portfolio – the mW-Bus Outdoor temperature and humidity sensor ROBIN – which facilitates comfortable indoor environments while minimizing energy consumption. WEPTECH’s innovative ROBIN sensor will join the company’s family of indoor/outdoor atmospheric sensors – MUNIA, JUNCO, and MYNA.
Smart metering and smart building technologies are gaining traction globally. With unpredictable weather patterns on the rise, energy efficiency and the automatic regulation of homes and buildings is at the forefront of consumers’ minds. WEPTECH’s team of engineers has dedicated themselves to developing next generation sensors for intelligent energy systems – for both in- and outdoor applications. Their newly introduced ROBIN sensor was met with much anticipation, as it alleviates the pressure on home-owners and facility managers to react to rapid fluctuations in both temperature and humidity.
Wolfgang Esch, OMS Board Member and Sales Director at WEPTECH stated: “The ROBIN exceeded expectations in all trial runs in terms of reading accuracy, data transfer reliability and hardware durability, and considering the price point, we are sure that it will become an integral part of any smart building system.”
With its UV, dust, and moisture-proof protective casing, WEPTECH’s wM-Bus Outdoor temperature and humidity sensor ROBIN is well-suited to withstand extreme climatic conditions. It has the capacity to precisely read and relay outdoor temperature and humidity levels in the range of -40oC to +65oC. Moreover, its hardwired lithium battery boasts a minimum of 10-year battery life for long-term dependability.
The ROBIN outdoor sensor can be seamlessly networked with WEPTECH’s indoor temperature sensor MYNA, indoor humidity and temperature sensor MUNIA, or any other OMS wM-Bus compatible device. Depending on user preference, the sensor can be configured either at the factory or on-site. ROBIN’s wireless design allows for easy installation and integration into existing networks, and can be monitored and controlled remotely via smart devices for optimum resource management and significant cost savings.
