Full Gauge Controls -Temperature and humidity controller with MT-530Ri plusFull Gauge Controls -Temperature and humidity controller with MT-530Ri plus

MT-530Ri plus is an instrument that controls and indicates the environment temperature and humidity. The controller is indicated for low and medium relative humidity (from 5 to 85%, without condensation) and temperature from -10 to 70şC (or from 14şF to 158şF). Its outputs are independent, what allows its configuration as a two-step humidistat, keeping the function of temperature indicator. Moreover, its versatility allows its application for humidification and/or dehumidification. Its temperature and humidity sensors are joined in a unique bulb, what reduce the space destined for the wiring on the installation.
The instrument also has serial communication for connection with the Sitrad via internet, software that allows the 24h on-line management of the installations, from anywhere in the world. Sitrad evaluates, controls and stores data; moreover, it allows the remote changing on controller operation parameters. It also sends alert message to registered mobiles and e-mails if parameters get of the configured limits and analyses history through graphics and reports, registering data with total accuracy and reliability. Its application includes aviaries, humidificators / dehumidificators, climatized cellars, laboratories, surgical rooms, grains drying, clean rooms and IT facilities.
