Models

There are some defined configurations of Waspmote Plug & Sense! depending on which sensors are going to be used. Waspmote Plug & Sense! configurations allow to connect up to six sensor probes at the same time.

Each model takes a different conditioning circuit to enable the sensor integration. For this reason, each model allows connecting just its specific sensors.

This section describes each model configuration in detail, showing the sensors which can be used in each case and how to connect them to Waspmote. In many cases, the sensor sockets accept the connection of more than one sensor probe. See the compatibility table for each model configuration to choose the best probe combination for the application.

It is very important to remark that each socket is designed only for one specific sensor, so they are not interchangeable. Always be sure you have connected the probes in the right socket. Otherwise, they can be damaged.

Calibrated gas sensors are manufactured once the order has been placed to ensure maximum durability of the calibration feature. The manufacturing process and delivery may take from 4 to 6 weeks. The lifetime of calibrated gas sensors is 6 months working at maximum accuracy. We strongly encourage our customers to buy extra gas sensors to replace the original ones after that time to ensure maximum accuracy and performance.

Smart Water

The Smart Water model has been conceived to facilitate the remote monitoring of the most relevant parameters related to water quality. With this platform you can measure more than 5 parameters, including the most relevant for water control such as dissolved oxygen, oxidation-reduction potential, pH, conductivity and temperature.

The Smart Water Ions line is complementary for these kinds of projects, enabling the control of concentration of ions like Ammonium (NH 4+ ), Bromide (Br - ), Calcium (Ca 2+ ), Chloride (Cl - ), Cupric (Cu 2+ ), Fluoride (F - ), Iodide (I - ), Lithium (Li + ), Magnesium (Mg 2+ ), Nitrate (NO 3- ), Nitrite (NO 2- ), Perchlorate (ClO 4- ), Potassium (K + ), Silver (Ag + ), Sodium (Na + ) and pH.
