When To Monitor With A Digital Fluid Sensor

Our Digital Fluid Temperature Sensor was designed for extreme conditions and temperatures in sensitive storage, warehousing, facilities and other condensing environments. This sensor is compatible with any of our Room Alert proactive environment monitoring devices, including our new highest capacity, most advanced and secure Room Alert 32S. It was engineered to accurately measure temperature through a special sealed tube containing Propylene Glycol. 

Propylene Glycol is a colorless liquid with extremely low freezing points and high boiling points so it can easily withstand extreme settings which makes it perfect for condensing environments. The tube makes this sensor especially ideal to monitor refrigerated items because it tracks their temperature instead of the surrounding air temperature. The Digital Fluid Temperature Sensor is customizable with cable lengths of 25 feet, 50 feet and 100 feet. The Digital Fluid Temperature Sensor reads within +/- 2 C degrees accuracy. This gives a much more accurate temperature reading for sensitive storage than a standard Digital Temperature Sensor.

Often times restaurants, medical facilities, storage spaces and more need to proactively monitor, track and log temperatures inside of refrigerators, freezers and other cold storage spaces in order to maintain a successful business and meet industry rules and regulations. This sensor is ideal for condensing environments and corresponding industries such as food and beverage, medical and warehousing that must maintain FDA regulations and more. Our Digital Fluid Temperature Sensor also has an innovative design that protects the sensor’s components from excessive moisture, making it the best Room Alert sensor option for cold storage spaces. Standard Temperature Sensors can be easily damaged in condensing environments. 

Our Room Alert sensor has been utilized in labs that monitor vaccines, plasma, IV bags and/or other specimens, aquariums, refrigeration devices or other locations where fluid temperature must be monitored and/or regulated.

To support our Digital Fluid Temperature Sensor along with our other proactive Room Alert monitors and sensors, we have also developed useful services in our Room Alert Account portal. Some of our secure and advanced features in RoomAlert.com include alerting, data history, reporting, Public URLs and more. All of these features pair with our monitors, sensors and accessories to prevent and manage costly downtime with Room Alert, the market leader in IT & Facilities Environment Monitoring.
