The Sentinel node is at the heart of every Signal Fire Remote Sensing System (SFRSS) and is designed to interface with sensors, extract data, and send long-range transmission of data in the unlicensed ISM bands through terrain, structures, or weather.

The Sentinel Thermocouple interfaces with K and J type thermocouples to report on thermocouple temperature, ambient temperature, thermocouple error status and diagnostic information. The sensor takes a temperature reading and sends data to a gateway where data is available via a Modbus RTU or TCP interface.

The Sentinel Turbine provides a sensitive pulse pick up with a direct connection to a turbine flow meter. Node can monitor frequencies in the range of 1 Hz to 2 kHz with a min sensitivity of 30 mV. The Sentinel totalizes flow volume as well as the current flow per hour and sends the data to a gateway where the data is available via a Modbus RTU or TCP interface.

The Sentinel Load Cell is designed to work with standard mV/V load cells, making it ideal for load measurements on moving devices.

All Sentinel nodes are rated to Class 1 Division 1 standards, intrinsically safe, rugged oil field proven and can be power either from internal batteries or Signal Fire’s C1D1 Solar System.
