Orbit K

Wireless temperature sensor with Type K connector

Industry standard made easy

An intelligent solution for temperature monitoring on a cable or probe with a Type K thermocouple.

All you have to do is to insert the Type K thermocouple directly into the Orbit K to start the real-time temperature monitoring through the Sigfox wireless network.

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

The ultimate tool for easy temperature monitoring

The Orbit K and a thermocouple is all you need to start the monitoring with real-time data through the globally available network, called Sigfox. The Orbit K has all you need to get started built directly into the unit – batteries, antennas, converters etc. The sensor has an impressive internal battery capacity of 5.200 mAh, which is enough to have live data transmitted from your device in over 10 years. The Orbit K is made with robust materials and will last in most industrial environments.

Examples on Type K sensors to connect

The Orbit K uses the Type K thermocouple standard. Simply plugin the needed design of the cable, and you will have real-time data transmitted directly from your device. The use of Type K gives you a huge flexibility to change the shape of your sensor during its lifetime.

How Orbit K works

The Orbit K is activated with a single tap on the top shell. Insert the thermocouple cable and access the data with the Sensohive App. Adjust the sensor’s settings directly in the software to optimize the performance depending on your use case. The Sensohive App includes all you need in terms of analytics tools, SMS alarms and documentation for integrations. This is a simple and intuitive solution for easy and wireless temperature monitoring with Type-K thermocouples

Globally connected without sim-card and roaming

The Orbit K 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.
