Description

The ALTA Wireless Food Probe allows the user to throw away the clipboard for good. The wireless food probe replaces manual temperature checks and enhances quality and safety by bringing the power of remote data collection to commercial kitchens, food production, and restaurants.

The Food Probe is CFR21 part 11 compliant and measures the internal temperature of cooked or refrigerated food from -50°C to 260°C (-58°F to 500°F). The data can then be transmitted to iMonnit software, allowing for data logging and a data trail as ingredients are processed, packaged, shipped, and prepared.

The Food probe is highly portable and housed in an ergonomic and water-resistant IP67 case. The sensor includes: removable curved* needle-style probe, pop-out grip, and wall mount. It provides bank-grade security and an industry-leading data transmission range of 1,200+ feet through up to 12 walls.

*T-handle probe is available as an add-on, upon request. To view more information on the T-Handle Probe click here.

ALTA - Leading Enterprise Grade "Internet of Things" Solutions

ALTA sensors offer 3 to 4 times the range of standard sensor platforms, extending non-line-of-sight reach to an exceptional 1,200+ feet through walls (12-14 walls typical). Using Frequency-hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS) also allows ALTA sensors to have better interference immunity from other wireless devices.Superior power management provides ALTA sensors with almost twice the battery life of Monnit’s standard wireless sensors.

  • Coin cell sensors typically last 3+ years.
  • AA and Industrial sensors typically last up to 12+ years.

ALTA products employ Monnit's new Encrypt-RF® Security (256-bit Diffie Hellman key exchange and AES-128 CBC encryption for all sensor data messages), so security is maintained at all communication points from sensor to gateway, gateway to software, then back again.

Integrated on-board data storage allows ALTA sensors to store data messages if communication to a wireless gateway is disrupted (power outage, Internet outage, or out of range). Messages that can’t be delivered will be time-stamped and stored in memory (up to the last 512 messages) until communication with the gateway is restored, at which point the messages will all be transmitted.Over-the-air updates allow ALTA products to be updated remotely if new fixes or features become available.The standard version of this sensor is powered by two replaceable 1.5 V AA sized batteries (included with purchase). This sensor is also available with a line power option. The line powered version of this sensor has a barrel power connector allowing it to be powered by a standard 3.0 - 3.8 V power supply (Included with Line Power option upgrade). The line powered version also uses two standard 1.5 V AA batteries as backup for uninterrupted operation in the event of line power outage.Power options must be selected at time of purchase, as the internal hardware of the sensor must be changed to support the selected power requirements.


Which Monnit Sensor is Right For Me?

  • Enterprise AA-battery powered: Our most popular type is ideal for typical commercial & enterprise environments, such as server rooms. A 1,200+ ft. range readily covers most facilities.
  • CC-battery powered: Compact sensor is great for space-restricted areas such as control cabinets or cold storage.
  • Industrial: Sensor's weatherproof, NEMA-rated enclosure withstands demanding indoor/outdoor use, e.g., warehouses & production facilities.
  • PoE•X: Power over Ethernet sensors integrate with a building's PoE network; it can also be used with a standard Ethernet infrastructure & powered via an optional AC adapter.
  • MoWi: This discreet sensor uses your own Wi-Fi for networking and data transmission—popular for smaller businesses and facilities.
