The EnOcean multi-sensor pro-vides a wealth of streaming data to understand the surrounding environment. The sensor is energy harvesting, maintenance-free, and cost effective. The multi-sensor is ideal for smart buildings. The EnOcean multi-sensor is a compact, five-in-one sensor. It brings together four types of existing EnOcean sensors into one and adds a new type of sensor for acceleration:
- Temperature: Measures temperatures between -68°F (-20°C) and +140°F (+60°C)
- Humidity: Measures relative humidity from 0 to 100 %
- Illumination: Measures light intensities between 0 and 65,000 lux
- Magnet Contact: Open and closed status of doors / windows
- Acceleration: Measures acceleration
For notifications of changes in any of the five environmental measures, alerts can be easily set up in the universal user interface. The alerts can be based on user established thresholds. Alerts will be sent when the threshold is exceeded and then a second one when the measure returns below the threshold.
Alerts can be sent to a wide group of people. It is easy to enter email addresses in the user interface for everyone who should receive alerts. The alerts can be received on any Smart device that is internet enabled.
The status of any of the five environmental measures can be monitored in the Sensor Data tab of the universal user interface. There is a line chart for each type of data that shows all data received. The user can define the time-period they would like to view such as one day or six months.
The multi-sensor is an integral part of the Titanium platform. Therefore, when the platform is installed for the multi-sensor, other Titanium functions can be easily added. This is an extraordinary economic benefit. For example, if the user wanted to add a CO2 sensor, the sensor can be quickly installed and immediately, the user can begin monitoring CO2.
The single most important feature of the Titanium platform is its multi-location capability. The multi-sensor is easily sprinkled throughout a building wherever the user would like to monitor the environment. This enables the user to monitor the entire building.
Then, the user could deploy multi-sensors at all their other buildings. With Titanium, this deployment can include hundreds of buildings in many different regions. The status of all the multi-sensors in hundreds of buildings can be monitored in the universal user interface. Alerts can be sent from any of these sensors.
Below are some of the key product features:
- Data sent every 60 seconds
- Module dimensions: 1.6” (40 mm) x 1.6” (40 mm) x 0.5” (13 mm)
- Power supply: integrated solar cell
- Optional battery backup: CR1632
- Operating time in darkness after full charge: four days with no backup battery and with battery backup, several years, with the number of years dependent on operating conditions
- Immediate alerts for changes in environment status such as open / closed door or based on a user established threshold such as temperature that exceeds 75°F.
Below are some possible applications:
- With five different data types, provides compact, sophisticated monitoring sensor for any indoor environment
- Place on valuable objects to generate an alert if moved
- Provides additional environmental data for managing heating and cooling
- Provides additional information for managing lighting control
- Receive alerts when a door, cabinet door, or window is opened or closed
Below are some of the key benefits:
- Eliminates installing multiple sensors for the five data types
- Self-powered via ambient indoor light with reporting on internal energy level
- Easy to mount wherever data collection is desired
- Compact-sized module is unobtrusive
The Titanium user interface is used to monitor, control, obtain data, and analyze. The data from the EnOcean multi-sensor can be viewed in the Titanium user interface. Titanium’s well thought out design principles delivers a user interface that is consistent in function, terminology, and appearance resulting in a user interface that is intuitive, friendly, and easy to use.
The Titanium menu has four sections. When the user selects one of the four sections, the menu will expand for additional options. After the user logs onto the user interface, they will see the tabs below on the left:
When the Status menu is selected, the menu expands to show additional tabs. Select the Sensor Data Tab to see the data from the multi-sensor:
The Sensor Data Tab has a line chart for each type of data. The Sensor Data tab will show the graphs and data for all sensors, thermostats, people counters, and actuators. The user does not need to access different platforms for different types of data.
If the platform does not include a certain type of sensor (e.g., CO2) the line chart will not show (i.e., there are no blank line charts for non-existent sensors). There is no user set-up required for line charts. As soon as the commissioning is completed (which typically takes only a few minutes), the user interface automatically creates a line chart and data starts flowing real time.
The Titanium user interface has a line chart for each of the five data types of the EnOcean multi-sensor. Please see the examples below.
The graph below shows real time temperature data. The time-period shown can be dynamically adjusted.
The graph below shows real time humidity data. The time-period shown can be dynamically adjusted.
The graph below shows real time illumination data. The time-period shown can be dynamically adjusted.
The graph below shows real time magnet contact (switch) data. The time-period shown can be dynamically adjusted.
The graph below shows real time acceleration data. The time-period shown can be dynamically adjusted.
When only one sensor is selected, a CSV links appears in the lower left corner below the line chart. Select this link to automatically download the sensor data. By selecting the link for the csv file, the data can be downloaded for analysis. The data downloaded will reflect the data in the graph. To get a different time-period, go to the graph and select a different start date.
By hovering the cursor over a line in the graph, a pop-up box will appear and show the following data:
- Name and ID of the sensor
- Date and Current value
- Minimum and Maximum values
- Average value
By moving the cursor along the line, the data in the pop-up box will update for the appropriate date. By moving the cursor from one line to another, the pop-up box will update for a different sensor.
The Multi-Network Data tab looks very much like the Sensor Data tab. The Sensor Data tab shows all data for one network. Typically, one network is equivalent to one building. For customers with multiple networks, it is easy to toggle from one network to another to see the data.
The Multi-Network Sensor Data tab shows all data for all networks at the same time. Viewing data from all networks in one line chart makes it easy to analyze building and environmental conditions across all locations. Furthermore, diagnostics can be conducted across all locations to identify opportunities for operational efficiencies and energy savings.
