Orbit 3

Wireless temperature and humidity sensor

When monitoring becomes easy

Orbit 3 is a simple and robust wireless temperature and humidity sensor.

The sensor can be used for both temperature monitoring in the freezers or refrigerator or even for climate monitoring in the area where you store vegetables.

The data will automatically be available to you in the Sensohive App on both mobile, tablets and PC.

The ultimate tool for easy climate monitoring

Orbit 3 is all you need to get started with climate monitoring. The sensor is a robust wireless temperature and humidity sensor, which can run for many years without maintenance. Just place the sensor where you would like it to monitor, and get notified on your mobile phone or tablet if any threshold is exceeded.

Simply insert batteries and your are ready to monitor. Due to its low power consumption, you can monitor up to 5 years depending on the transmission interval. The Orbit 3 is crafted in with robust materials, which makes it withstand most harsh industrial environments.

How Orbit 3 works

The Orbit 3 sensor is activated by tapping on it twice. The Orbit 3 is now monitoring its environment and will transmit the data directly to the Sensohive App in real-time.

You will be able to change the frequency of the monitoring, see graphs, set up alarms, and find API documentation in the Sensohive App.

Climate monitoring made easy and simple.

Orbit 3 system overview

Globally connected without sim-card and roaming

The Orbit 3 sensor requires no installation of local gateways, sim-cards or Wi-Fi networks.

The sensor uses the world’s best network for sensors in the IoT-industry (Internet of Things), called Sigfox. This means the sensor will be online and send data directly to a cloud-based server without any local installations. In practice, this means that the sensor is easy to set up and to move around later on, even across borders to other countries.

Mounting options

The Orbit 3 sensor can be used in a wide range of applications and we therefore offer different mounting solutions:

  • 3M Dual Lock reclosable fasteners
  • 3M VHB tape
  • Cable tie mounts (self-adhesive)
  • Adjustable cable tie mounts (self-adhesive)
  • Neodymium magnets (self-adhesive)

If you need a specific mounting solution or one that is not represented above, please contact us.

NB: For mounting on dense, large or metallic surfaces, we advise to use a spacer for signal enhancement.

* Long-term exposure to conditions outside normal humidity range (20-80% RH) and prolonged exposure to extreme conditions may accelerate ageing.

** Not included.

*** Battery life depends on mode, operating temperature, and frequency of measurements and transmissions. Configuration with measurements every 15 minutes and data transmission every hour gives a lifetime of approx. 2.5 years.

**** RC1, RC2 and RC7 are Sigfox Ready certified with Class 0. RC4 is pending certification and are available as samples.
