Omron Electronic Components Europe has announced a USB version of its multi-function Environmental Sensor that allows designers to monitor seven parameters.
Like the previously available 2JCIE-BL01 Sensor, the new 2JCIE-BU01 offers multiple sensors in one unit that has built-in memory and connectivity through beacon communication.
Omron’s Environmental Sensor is available for the first time as a USB unit measuring just 14.9 x 29.1 x 7.0mm and can monitor temperature, humidity, light, UV, barometric pressure, noise, seismic and air quality (VOC gas). The sensor can accumulate data for approximately 3 months (based on a communication frequency of once every 5 mins) and connect to multiple devices, such as smartphones, via Bluetooth 5.0.
The 2JCIE sensors feature its own embedded memory for data logging to keep track of the surroundings. Potential applications include monitoring and controlling both industrial and office environments to improve the work space. It is also suitable for home and outdoor applications.
Data from the modules can be downloaded over Bluetooth allowing designers to easily access recorded data. The 2JCIE Environmental Sensors are cloud compatible with no need for additional hardware. Bespoke threshold values can be set to provide alerts that notify the user of any abnormal sensor readings.
