NEON Thermocouple Sensor

Measures extreme temperatures in fluids / spaces

Knowledge is the basis of good decision making. TWTG NEON Thermocouple Sensor is designed to be implemented within minutes and to start collecting temperature data directly. The device comes with a wired thermocouple (complying with all industrial standards) of up to one metre. It uses on-board intelligence to determine average values over user-determined time scales to provide insights that can be used directly within existing systems.

The device can be attached to existing installations and monitors changes or absolute extremes in temperature. By monitoring these on a variety of locations, insights can positively benefit operations. With the wired thermocouple, extremely low temperatures can be measured (-270°C), such as hydrogen or high temperatures (1700°C) that are found within furnaces, and everything in between. The types of thermocouples can be specified by the client, making the sensor fully flexible for integration. All in the reliable NEON form factor that comes as a battery powered, IECEx Class 1 / ATEX Zone 1 certified I-IoT device, communicating wirelessly via LoRaWAN.

IECEx Class 1 / ATEX Zone 1 certified

Designed for industry from the very beginning, TWTG’s NEON product line is built to not only operate in industrial sites where explosive gasses are being handled but also all other elements that a sensor may be exposed to in the course of its 10 year lifetime. It has been tested and certified to work in conditions from -40° to 80° Celsius without hampering performance. The devices are designed and engineered in such a way that they can be safely and securely deployed in a wireless network and are fully remotely configurable, ensuring not only longevity but also reliability within an operation.

Additionally, TWTG delivers spare parts and product lifecycle support. Hence, even at the end of the battery lifetime, the sensor can continue to be used with the correct refurbishment kit. This way, periodical maintenance can be kept at a minimum.

NEON Thermocouple Sensor can be installed / mounted using various methods. The thermocouple desired, can be specified by the customer. The sensor is flexible and adapts to the various types.

NEON Product Line - LoRa devices designed for heavy industry

The TWTG NEON product range supports all industrial customers moving towards LoRaWAN as the Industrial IoT network of the future. The LoRaWAN network gives industrial operations a secure solution, which has no vendor lock-in, scales up to tens of thousands of sensors, covers complete sites with only a small amount of gateways and best of all – the low-power approach means that the lifetime of the NEON products can be extended dramatically. This international networking technology is quickly becoming the industry standard.

NEON stands for a standardised approach to collecting data points from within the operation and a general approach to creating integrated solutions with existing IT ecosystems.
