Wireless compass sensors

Wireless compass sensors

Monnit wireless compass sensors use a highly sensitive 3 axis digital compass to return the orientation of the device in regards to magnetic north. Great for tracking directional behavior and positioning. User customization allows you to set alerts via SMS text or email if criteria are met or exceeded.

Monnit Industrial Sensors come in an IP66, NEMA 4X, CE rated, sealed, and weatherproof enclosure. They are powered by a single, replaceable, Industrial grade 3.6 V battery (included).

An optional solar powered version is also available. The solar powered version includes a Lithium Iron Phosphate rechargeable battery in conjunction with a solar power cell to keep the battery charged and at optimal capacity. If there is no light present at the solar cell, the battery alone could continue to power the sensor for up to 5 years.
