Sensor Boards


  • Overview
  • Specifications
  • Features and Benefits
  • Applications


Developed in conjunction with UC Berkeley and Intel Research Labs, the MTS400 and MTS420 offer five basic environmental sensing parameters and an optional GPS module (MTS420). These sensor boards utilize the latest generation of IC-based surface mount sensors. These energy-efficient digital devices in turn provide extended battery-life and performance wherever low maintenance field deployed sensor nodes are required. 

These versatile sensor boards are intended for a wide variety of applications ranging from a simple wireless weather station to a full mesh network of environmental monitoring nodes. Applicable industries include Agricultural, Industrial, Forestry, HVAC and more.
