Monnit Corp. released new enterprise-grade wireless products brand, ALTA. This Internet of Things (IoT) remote monitoring solution was designed to meet demanding enterprise requirements.
ALTA wireless sensors are able to communicate readings over eight times the distance of standard sensor platforms. They also offer significantly longer battery life and introduce Monnit’s new Encrypt-RF bank level security, making them ideal for an infinitely range of sensing and control applications.
Created with the requirements of Monnit’s demanding enterprise partners in mind, ALTA sensors are able to monitor conditions and wirelessly transmit data, from non-line of site (through walls) distances over 1,000 feet. In addition, ALTA solutions employ industry leading security algorithms, including a 256-bit exchange to establish a global unique key, and an AES-128 CTR for all data messages.
It also includes five-star wireless reliability via frequency-hopping spread spectrum (FHSS); superior power management for longer battery life using off-the-shelf batteries; over-the-air (OTA) updates that allow ALTA products to be updated remotely making them future-proof; onboard sensor memory allows for days, weeks or months of time-stamped data logging; ALTA sensors that feature Monnit’s new PinchPower enclosure design for easy access to the battery compartment; apart from an
enhanced OEM, reseller and distributor pricing, platform access, and integration tools allow for low cost entry into IoT markets with minimal effort.
“IoT is not just refashioned ‘I.T.’ It’s beyond the ‘edge’ into actual things like commercial appliances, HVAC and manufacturing equipment. Whether your space is industrial, agricultural, office, or retail, businesses need a way to leverage operational data to improve outcomes, protect assets and save resources,” said Monnit CEO Brad Walters. “With ALTA, companies get the most reliable and cost-effective solution, offering secure, real-time information on how assets, buildings, and processes are managed and maintained.”
