microSpiderThe microSpider has been superseded by the microSpider2 Environmental

The microSpider is a completely self-contained data logging and telemetry system. It includes all software, hardware, batteries and a built-in mobile phone module. The compact IP-68 enclosure makes it suitable for installations in the toughest environments.

No software is required on your computer to set up or interrogate a microSpider.

The microSpider can:

  • monitor inputs (analogue, digital, counters, frequency, quadrature/shaft encoder)
  • control outputs
  • generate SMS, email and twitter alarms
  • record data
  • send data via e-mail or FTP
  • communicate via internal GSM/NextG/LAN module
  • be used in wet environments
  • operate for more than 5 years on its replaceable internal battery
  • update software automatically in-field from remote servers, or update from connected PC.

The microSpider is ideal for short and long term monitoring. It can interface with a wide range of sensors and meters. The browser interface makes it easy to set up and test, and there is no need for external power, batteries or solar panels.

Once installed the microSpider will log data and automatically send reports via e-mail and/or FTP.  User configurable alarms can activate outputs, send SMS, e-mail and twitter alarm messages and automatically send data reports.

Note: A microSpider Comms Cable (sold-separately) is required to connect the microSpider to a computer for configuration via the built-in web server.
