Sensormetrix Release New Low -Cost GSM Temperature Monitor

iCARUS is a newly developed low-cost GSM temperature monitor that has been developed by Sensormetrix and Sequoia Technology.

Breaking News: Sensormetrix & Sequoia Technology have designed and built a GSM remote monitoring device for monitoring and recording temperature information. This also alerts via SMS, Email and Ring Out if the temperature goes outside the user -defined safe limits.


This device is called 'Icarus'. It's a compact unit with a 1.5 metre temperature probe attached, the Icarus kit includes everything you need except the GSM SIM card. (Compatible with any GSM network) The device is also wall mountable, all this for under £250.00

Steven Killick the Sensormetrix Product Manager said "We felt a real demand from our customers for a good value temperature monitoring system, which could alert you if temperature reaches an unsafe level no matter where you are. We decided the best way to achieve this was via SMS or Ring Out, during the design we added extra features like datalogging capability, email alerts and made the unit programmable via SMS."

The Icarus -Temp has three alert modes which can all be enabled together or separately so if the temperature goes outside the safe limits you've set you'll be notified.

Email - Icarus will email an assigned address.

SMS - Icarus will send a SMS text message to up to 2 mobile numbers

Ring Out - Icarus will dial a telephone number to ring the phone, using incoming caller ID you can see if the Icarus is calling you with a temperature issue, this option is good as it's harder to miss a call compared to SMS ring tone.

Datalogger Feature
The Icarus will also record the temperature at set intervals and email a CSV file with the temperature history.

SMS Commands
Although you can easily configure the Icarus via a PC using a simple windows application, you can also send SMS commands to the Icarus to change various setting. For example change maximum and minimum temperature limits, or request the current temperature and the Icarus will text back the number that contacted it with the current information

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
