View Full Version : Products available to Display Temperature
02-16-2007, 05:21 PM
Hey does anyone have any products that can display temperature of a case from a location from a remote location?
something with an audible alarm and or min/max temp fluctuation memory.
My application is for a customer who has 3 reach ins 2 freezers and 1 cooler in a storage room away from their occupied room and something to monitor temperature would be good, I'd havea clear shot to run wires for this maybe about 100' span or so between where the sensor and the display would be.
any ideas or experiences of any parts you may have used to do this?
and of course price on the lower end is what they would like(of course like all of em) I tried to sell them on a few supco round graph chary loggerts/monitors and that was too pricey for em!

johnson controls a 419 has remote sensing capability. you can set it to close on rise for high temp, to ring a bell, or light a bulb, etc....

These might be of some use , a little pricey though.

Check out the dixell controls, they have controls with alarms for high and low temperature with a built in buzzer and external contacts, plus have remote displays options. I think the XR170 control will work well for you. Google Weiss Instruments on the internet to see the dixell products.:) :)

The least expensive set up that Weiss/ Dixell would have would be this Web based miniature server. The XWEB300 You could monitor and track up to 6 temp probes and set up an external alarm. Contact me if you would like more info.

Go to a alarm company. Ask for a temperature monitor. Cheap Cheap Cheap. you can set them up with delays ect, can put remote sensors on them. You can even hook them up with the buildings alarm system (imagine that) Best bang for the buck.
I have used the Bluegrass T-280 costs something like $60 or $70 with a remote probe from a local alarm supply house.

Thanks bryan, I'll have a look at that, i have a customer now who has the same sort of thing set up in his store, i should pay him a visit to see where he got them. I'll check a local alarm place thanks for the tip!

What do the probes cost for use with that alarm system? How many probes can you do on one system? $70 seems to cheap.

Last time I was in the Alarm supply place (about 6mths ago) the probes were $15. The T-280 has a internal delay you can set. You can also set it up for high and low temp alarms. You can only put one remote on the unit. With a transformer and a backup battery you can have your system ready to roll and not have to worry about power failures ect.
What about the Supco TA3, digital display, audible alarm, extendable sensor up to 2000 feet. I've got a similar project underway to monitor 6-8 walk-in boxes and these are what I'm leaning towards using.

yeah i had one of those brought in for me before for a lab application, can't remember why i did end up selling it though, for some reason there was something that it didn't have. I'm thinking the accuracy or something can't remember.
if you're gonna buy 8 of those puppies you should get a deal haha, unfortunatly the owner I am dealing with is still to cheap for taht bugger haha, but i still try, i know i'm a sucker for punnishment!!, lol

I can't give out pricing but I know that the XJP60D From Dixell With keyboard and six sensors is still less expensive than the Supco units. Remember that we are talking six probes of monitoring not just one.

do you have a link on any info on that unit, i hard time trying to find any english sites using the word dixell, i searched the wiess site and got a little info but not particularly on that unit.
i did get this (http://www.weissinstruments.com/dixell/XWEB500.pdf) which looks cool, but expensive and this (http://www.weissinstruments.com/catalogs/dixell/XJ500page4.htm) which wsa the only place i could see the word XJP60D, which in this instance is part of a bigger package, Dixell XJ500 (http://www.weissinstruments.com/catalogs/dixell/xj500.htm)

OK, Mikey on to some new equipment.....:D Dixell last year introduced the XWEB series of Internet monitoring gateways. The series starts @ the XWEB300 and ends @ the XWEB5000 (VERY NEW NO INFO REALLY RELEASED AND WILL BE VERY EXCITING!!!!) The 300 is capable of monitoring and storing info on 12 addresses for about 2 days. Data logging no graphing and setup with a Modem can do ALARM EMAILS. The XWEB500 is a full blown WEB server that has Graphing, Data logging and scheduled printing making it a nice scalable HACCP system (Will do 100 Addresses for a YEAR!) Give it a static IP ADDY and you are live on the INTERNET. ALARM EMAILING SMS to a Smart Phone, the full deal. Anyhow I will email you the manuals on all three versions I have access to now. The XJP60D I will email also.
The reason I suggest the 300 is lower cost than the full blown deals.
We also have a REALLY COOL FULL BLOWN INTERNET WEB SERVER (INEXPENSIVE) THAT WILL DO ALL OF THE ABOVE for 247 Addys. That would be the XWB3000.
The XJ500 has been discontinued and replaced with the XWEB500...
