Mobeye Frost Alert System – Outdoor Temperature Monitoring
Accurate temperature measurement devices and remote frost alarms are essential tools for frost protection. The Mobeye ThermoGuard Outdoor version, also known as the Mobeye Frost Alert CM4200X, plays a crucial role in alerting you to adverse weather conditions that could lead to crop loss. When the temperature remains above the preset minimum limit, no action is required. However, as soon as it falls within the alarm threshold, you’ll receive both a phone call and a text message, providing you with the precise temperature information.
The CM4200X serves as a freeze and temperature alarm dialer designed for various outdoor applications. It is particularly valuable for farmers aiming to safeguard their plants and crops from frost-related damage. During spring, fruit growers and orchardists must protect their orchards and vineyards from potential frost damage and losses. They achieve this by activating irrigation systems and wind machines to create a protective water layer for blossoms. The Mobeye Frost Alert ensures that frost warnings are promptly delivered when temperatures drop too low.
The Mobeye ThermoGuard CM4200X offers continuous temperature monitoring and alerts farmers when temperatures become critically low. This battery-powered alarm system can call and/or send texts to pre-defined telephone numbers when the temperature falls below the critical threshold. Its IP66 waterproof enclosure makes it suitable for outdoor use.
This versatile solution benefits not only farmers but also frost workers in various fields, including construction, highway maintenance, salt truck operation, and road gritting.
ThermoGuard for wet situations
Typical other situations include: cooling cells with higher humidity, circumstances where the ThermoGuard could get wet. The IP66-rated outdoor enclosure makes the CM4200X suitable for wet or damp areas.
Mobeye Frost alarm – two versions
The Mobeye CM4200X is a battery-operated temperature alarm with an integrated communication module and an outdoor IP66-rated enclosure.
For those who require temperature trend analysis in addition to alarms, the extended version, the Mobeye CML4275, is available. The CML4275 offers multiple features that are valuable year-round. In addition to setting a lower limit for night frost detection, an upper temperature limit can be defined. If this limit is exceeded, the grower receives a notification, helping them decide when to adjust foil coverings or initiate cooling measures.
Mobeye night frost detectors continuously monitor outdoor temperatures and trigger alarms when the preset limit is reached. While the Mobeye CM4200X provides alarms, possibly with repeats, the CML4275 goes a step further by displaying temperature trends through an online application once in alarm mode, with the graph updating regularly. Both detectors have long-lasting battery life, and their temperature sensors come factory calibrated.
It’s important to note that the CM4200X functions primarily as an alarm dialer without protocol or recording capabilities. It alerts you only when temperature values deviate from the preset parameters or if connected sensors detect issues. The device allows connection of a single temperature sensor, and the open collector output is not available. Otherwise, its behaviour is identical to that of the CML4275.
