Orbit 3 sensor in black silicon case.

Orbit 3

Temperature and humidity sensor for ambient climate monitoring

Orbit 3 is a wireless sensor for ambient temperature and humidity monitoring. Install Orbit 3 at a suitable location, and it will wirelessly transmit temperature and humidity readings continuously. It can be used in precast factories, concrete laboratories, on-site – or wherever ambient climate creates value for you.
