Corintech incorporates GainSpan low-power Wi-Fi modules

Telecom Lead America: UK-based Corintech has launched its
Wi-Fi data logging sensors incorporating GainSpan’s low-power Wi-Fi modules.


The new EL-WiFi line enables users to remotely monitor an
environment. The sensors stream data to a PC, back end server or cloud based
service using a Wi-Fi network, without users having to manually collect data.


Wi-Fi enabled data loggers will significantly expand in
the market and open up new applications.


The EL-WiFi-TH is a Wi-Fi temperature and humidity data
logging sensor. The sensor measures temperature and humidity and then transmits
data via Wi-Fi to a PC running Corintech’s free software package. 


Moreover, users can view one or multiple sensors on the
PC at any one time.  And, users can change the settings on the sensors as
well as set alarms remotely. If the network connection is lost, the unit will
automatically log and store readings in memory; once the network is restored
all readings will be uploaded to the PC.


The EL-WiFi-TH is suited for use wherever the temperature
or humidity of sensitive materials, food products or manufacturing processes
have to be monitored and controlled such as in healthcare, pharmaceutical,
food, agriculture, but also for temperature control in buildings and server


Corintech will bring to market additional products in the
line later this year, powered by GainSpan Wi-Fi technology. The products
include the EL-WiFi-TP with a probe and extended temperature range, and the
EL-WiFi-Alert, which communicates high and low alert messages from any EL-WiFi
sensor via email and SMS.


Sean Wigmore, managing director at Corintech, said the
GainSpan GS1011 MIP’s low power consumption was critical for our applications
which require running on a battery for an extended period of time.


David Casey, vice president of sales, GainSpan, claims
that Corintech is a leader in data logging products and was first to develop a
successful line of USB products. The company is expecting equal success in
their wireless products as they roll out their new family of Wi-Fi devices.
