To make sure your dataflow is fully protected, 30MHz introduces a new connect casing: waterproof, dust proof and even resistant to hits. This special shield will last longer and ensure a reliable dataflow from the connected sensor. What does that full protection mean? That’s what we will explain in this article.
New 30MHz casing: dust and water resistant.
Watertight: resistant to wetness
Moisture is daily practice in growing environments. If it’s an irrigation system or a humid chamber, you need to be sure that your technology is fully protected from wetness. Well, that’s the case with this casing.
We designed this model especially for usage in wet and unclean environments. Completely in line with the IP67 rating. Meaning that the casing can safely be immersed in 1 meter of water for up to 30 minutes. During our tests the casing was even waterproof for a minimum of 24 hours. So a big splash of water on or an accidental drop in a puddle: no problem for this casing!
Robust: resistant to hits
We optimise our product for the environments which they’re being used in. Moisture, radiation, changes in temperature: it all takes its toll on the material. This new casing is developed for many years of usage and protection from different climate conditions. A special ventil ensures a stable pressure inside the casing.
Of course it’s useful if your products can take a hit. Well, this casing is a true powerhouse. To make sure the technology on the inside is safe, we tried to break the casing during the test phase. We dropped a 0,5 kilogram ball of steel from a height of 1,3 meters on the casing. Both the material and the tech inside remained unharmed. So that’s proof that this casing knows how to take a hit!
Handy bracket for optimal signal
The casing can hang, stand or be attached to a wall.
Physical protection aside, it’s crucial that the signal is optimal. The data needs to flow smoothly from the sensor via the casing to the 30MHz platform. Sufficient mounting is important. We found something to help you with that: a universal mounting bracket. The special design helps you with mounting the casing and connected sensor in an easy and optimal way. Standing, hanging or attached to a wall, the bracket will help you mount the product in the way you see fit. After mounting you can start directly with collecting and analysing data on your dashboard.
Want to measure a different area every once in a while? No problem. The bracket is easily disassembled and replaced. Measure a different spot every week if you want!
All added up: more security for your tech
In conclusion, this new casing fully protects the technology from outside influences, so the data can flow undisturbed from your sensors to your dashboards. No worries about the performance of your technology, you can stay focussed on other tasks.
