Digi Connect® Sensor is a fully integrated, battery powered cellular gateway with I/O for connecting to a wide range of external sensors. Designed to work in rugged industrial environments, the Connect Sensor is the ideal solution for companies looking to add remote monitoring and diagnostics in places where power is not easily available. Its easy installation, reliability and low data usage make remote monitoring possible in areas where it was previously cost prohibitive.
Local protocol support allows the Connect Sensor to communicate with Modbus sensors and capture sensor diagnostics along with data. This enables users to not only monitor their data but also remotely diagnose the health of their sensors.
Digi Connect Sensor leverages Digi Remote Manager® , enabling customers who need to monitor large numbers of sensors to easily integrate that data into existing applications or work with third-party applications.
Digi Connect Sensor works with Digi Connect Wizard. This smartphone application is the first of its kind for this type of battery powered gateway. It gives local installers, technicians or drivers instant feedback of sensor values over Bluetooth.

How it Works
Digi Connect Sensor has four analog inputs that can be configured as either a 0-10VDC or 4-20mA current loop input. Each of these four analog inputs has a power output that can be enabled or disabled by the user. The power outputs have a configurable DC voltage level so the Digi Connect Sensor can power almost any sensor. Digi Connect Sensor also has a digital I/O which can be configured for any number of functions.
Beyond a simple digital input or output, the I/O can be configured to count pulses when connected to mechanical switch or pulsed output meters. The Digital I/O can also be configured to wake the device out of sleep mode on a rising and/or falling edge. The Digital I/O, like the analog inputs, has its own DC power output.
Digi Connect Sensor, built for Digi Remote Manager
Digi Connect Sensor requires Digi Remote Manager to centralize control, edit configurations, update firmware and monitor the values and status of your connected sensors via a web browser. Sign up for your free Digi Remote Manager Developer Account.
