Mobeye Outdoor Temperature Monitoring
Accurate temperature measuring devices and remote frost alarms are important frost protection tools. The Mobeye ThermoGuard Outdoor version is also called the Mobeye Frost Alert CM4200X. It alerts you to weather conditions that could lead to crop loss. As long as the measured temperature is above the set minimum limit, no action is needed. As soon as the temperature gets in the alarm status, you’ll be informed by a phone call and text message, which tells you the accurate temperature.
The CM4200X is a freeze alarm and temperature alarm dialer for several outdoor applications. It helps farmers to protect plants and crops from frost damage. In springtime fruit growers and orchardists need to prevent their orchards and vineyards from serious frost damage and losses. By switching on irrigation systems and wind machines a water layer protects the blossom against frost. The Mobeye Frost Alert sends frost warnings when the temperature gets too low.
The Mobeye ThermoGuard CM4200X provides continuous monitoring of temperatures and warns the farmer when the temperature becomes too low. This battery-powered alarm system calls and / or texts to self-defined telephone numbers, once the temperature falls below the critical limit. The IP66 waterproof enclosure makes the device suitable for outside use.
The Mobeye Frost Alarm System makes it easy and affordable for growers to protect their crops from frost while reducing water usage. Night frost protection without sleep deprivation!
Typical other applications include: construction workers, highway workers, salt truck drivers, grit roads.
ThermoGuard for wet situations
Typical other situations include: cooling cells with higher humidity, circumstances where the ThermoGuard could get wet. The IP66 outdoor enclosure makes the CM4200X suitable for wet or damp areas.
Mobeye Frost alarm – two versions
Mobeye CM4200X is a battery-operated temperature alarm, with external temperature sensor integrated communication module in an Outdoor enclosure (IP66).
If you want to see the temperature trend in a graph in addition to receiving alarms, choose the extended version: the Mobeye CML4275. The CML4275 has multiple features that make sense all year round. In addition to the lower limit for night frost measurement, an upper limit for the temperature limit can be set. If the limit is exceeded, the grower will receive a notification. This is useful for determining when to turn the foil and whether sprinkling is needed for refrigeration.
The Mobeye night frost detectors continuously measure the outside temperature and alarm when the limit value is reached. The Mobeye CM4200X only gives an alarm, possibly with repeats. The CML4275 displays, in addition to alarms, the temperature trend via an online application. Once in alarm status, the graph is refreshed every few minutes. The detectors can run on batteries for a long time. The temperature sensor is factory calibrated.
So the CM4200X is a pure alarm dialer without protocol or recording function. This means that this detector only alarms if the set temperature values deviate or if any sensors connected to the NO/NC inputs detect errors. Only one temperature sensor can be connected and the open collector output is missing. Otherwise, the behaviour of the CM4200X is identical to that of the CML4275.
How it works
- Choose the Mobeye SIM card in combination with the Mobeye Internet Portal (management tool) or purchase a local 2G SIM card (normal size).
- Insert the supplied SIM card and batteries.
- Battery life is longer than the yearly frost period, even at low temperatures.
- You will be notified when the batteries need to be replaced.
- Set the lower temperature limit.
- Add at least one telephone number as alarm receiving number.
- In the event of an alarm situation, you will receive a phone call and SMS text messages (with current temperature).
Mobeye Internet Portal
You can use your Mobeye Frost Alarm stand-alone or in combination with the Mobeye Internet Portal for more functionality and (even more) user-friendliness. With the Internet Portal, large companies can remotely monitor the temperature in various orchards. The Internet Portal is only accessible by using a Mobeye SIM card in your Mobeye device.
Typical applications for the Frost Alert system
The Mobeye frost alarm is a reliable aid for:
- fruit growers
- tree culture
- salt and grit workers
- cooling cells that get wet
