Condition Monitoring in Storage Rooms

Efficiently monitor humidity and temperature using radio technology and Turck Cloud Solutions

Constant Temperature and Humidity Monitoring in Storage Rooms

In many food storage environments, temperature and humidity values must constantly be kept within certain limits. Manually checking and documenting these values can be time-consuming, especially for large storage areas with a number of different measuring points.

The combined temperature and humidity sensor (M12MFTH) sends data via a battery-powered DX80 node to a DX80 wireless gateway in the switch cabinet. From there, the data is sent via Modbus RTU to the Turck Cloud Gateway (TCG20), which then transmits the data to the Turck Cloud via either Wi-Fi or UMTS. Thanks to the wireless connection, no access to the company network is required, which bypasses possible security barriers for network access.

Your Benefits

  • Increased reliability thanks to continuous trend recording
  • Encrypted Cloud protocol and optional on-premises hosting for maximum security
  • Fast installation with end-to-end wireless condition monitoring solution
  • Data reports are exported in CSV format for simplified documentation

  • The strengths of the automated wireless system can be clearly seen in expansive plants

  • The DX transmits via a proprietary 2.4-GHz protocol with a range of up to 3.2 kilometers

  • The TCG20 gateway encrypts the data and sends it via Wi-Fi or UMTS to the Turck Cloud

  • The dashboards can be individually compiled from any number of data records

Condition Monitoring Systems for Safety and Efficiency 

The data is transmitted from the TCG20 to the Cloud via the encrypted Kolibri cloud protocol, which meets the most stringent security requirements (encrypted data transmission in accordance with TLS 1.3, AES128/AES256). Turck Cloud Solutions can either be hosted in Turck's data center or on-premises on the customer's servers. This allows for a private cloud solution without an Internet connection.

The Cloud Dashboard clearly shows the user the data from all of the sensors. No programming knowledge is required for setting up views or for configuring automatic alarm notifications via SMS or email — Turck's approach is "configuration not programming." Anyone who is familiar with operating standard PC software will be able to configure the recording of long-term trends or the creation of reports as CSV files. 

The condition monitoring system increases safety when monitoring storage rooms while requiring minimal use of staff and resources.
