MetaTracker safe temperature

What would be a safe environment (temperature wise, and other variables) to keep the tracker from taking damage?


  • Unless you are sending it to the bottom of the ocean or tossing it into a volcano, the board should be fine.  The temperature sensor ranges from -40C to 85C and the board itself sits inside an IP54 plastic case.
  • So would it be safe to let it monitor a machine that can get as hot as 100C? 120? 150? 200?
  • Just to put it in context, we have industrial machine, which the newer versions have their own built-in monitoring system. For older models, we are trying to make a tracker work as a remote monitoring tool, and be notified whenever a machine gets too hot for example.

    For that specific use case, you would need different materials for the casing and the temperature sensor would need to be swapped for one with a higher range.  If you're going over 150C, you would also need to factor in solder's melting point.

    Basically, you would need a customized design for those temperature ranges.  You can contact MbientLab directly for a quote regarding those temperature metrics.

  • Alright, Thanks!
