Introduction

The EpiSensor ZIO-20, a rugged, mains-powered Wireless Analog Current Loop Sensor, monitors flow rates, pressures, levels, pH or any other energy related output which uses the industry standard 4-20mA current loop.

The ZIO-20 has a reliable on-board mains power supply and secure wireless ZigBee® mesh communications for easy installation and minimum disruption to normal operations. The unit is housed in a waterproof polycarbonate enclosure and has a wireless range of up to 300m outdoors.

Applications

The ZIO-20 can be used to monitor a wide range of analog parameters that relate either directly or indirectly to energy usage in commercial and industrial buildings.

An example of indirect energy usage would be to monitor flow rates in a compressed air line; a high flow rate is maintained outside of production hours could indicate a leak in the system, or incorrect configuration of the control system. An example of direct energy monitoring via analog current loop would be tracking the level of fuel oil in a tank.
