DESCRIPTION:

The Mobile Surface Temperature Sensor - Model 5436 Surface Sentinel is a highly accurate sensor system that provides surface temperature and air temperature, in real-time, from a moving vehicle to an in-cab display unit. The Mobile Surface Temperature Sensor connects wirelessly to the Mobile Display Unit (MDU) for simple installation without the need to route wires. The Mobile Surface Temperature Sensor is used to detect and alert the vehicle operator of possible freezing conditions. The Mobile Surface Temperature Sensors were designed for the high demands of road weather management professionals.

The Mobile Surface Temperature Sensors are mounted to the outside of the vehicle, pointed at the road surface. The Mobile Surface Temperature Sensor uses its highly accurate non-contact infrared sensor to measure the surface temperature and a highly responsive and accurate sensor for air temperature. The Mobile Display Unit (MDU) is mounted inside the vehicle and displays the Mobile Surface Temperature Sensor's road surface temperature and air temperature measurements in numerical and graphical formats. The display is configured with an easy to navigate menu. The Mobile Surface Temperature Sensor connects to the MDU with a wireless Bluetooth connection.

The Mobile Surface Temperature Sensors measure both air temperature and surface temperature in real-time. The Mobile Surface Temperature Sensors have industry leading air and surface temperature response times. Bluetooth connectivity from the Mobile Surface Temperature Sensor to the Mobile Display Unit (MDU) reduces installation cost associated with routing wires through your vehicle. The Mobile Surface Temperature Sensors offer user adjustable temperature alerts and numerical and graphical display of sensor data. The Mobile Surface Temperature Sensors integrate with existing vehicle equipment such as AVL systems and provide RS-232 and RS-485 serial output standards from MDU. The MDU's ambient light sensor automatically adjusts brightness of screen inside the vehicle.


 

APPLICATIONS:

  • Help determine chemical type and application rates for winter maintenance operations
  • Low cost way to fill in gaps between existing road weather stations
  • Alerting paint stripe crews that the road temperature is ready to start work
