This series, according to Advantech, marks a significant advancement in the field of industrial sensing applications, offering long-range data transmission combined with much improved power efficiency. The EVA-2000 series, comprising of diverse sensor models from temperature and humidity to water leak detection, is designed to address the needs of industrial automation, equipment monitoring, and environmental monitoring.

At the heart of the EVA-2000 series' functionality lies their ability to efficiently gather and transmit data wirelessly over extended distances through low-power, wide area LoRaWAN technology. This capability is enhanced by their low power consumption, which can be attributed to their double 3.6v Li-ion batteries, ensuring prolonged battery life.

The adherence to LoRaWAN standards not only promises scalability and cost-effectiveness in the deployment of a multitude of devices but also simplifies integration within existing systems. Moreover, each unit in the series uses a built-in embedded antenna in a compact design that facilitates flexible installation across varied environments.

Standout products in this series include the EVA-2210, which is a 3-phase current meter equipped with 3 x 75A clamp-on CT. It can measure equipment currents up to 75A in diverse applications such as pumps, fan motors, compressors, computers, and servers. Eliminating the need for complex wiring, the EVA-2210 significantly enhances energy management efficiency for distributed devices.

Further enhancing the versatility of the series are the EVA-2310 and EVA-2311 models. The EVA-2310 is a temperature and humidity sensor for monitoring environments in offices, hospitals, classrooms, and warehouses.

The EVA-2311 uses a PT1000 round head heat probe sensor, which extends its utility with a 2m length cable and IP67 rating, making it suitable for extreme temperature detection ranging from -70°C to 200°C.

The EVA-2510 model is a water leakage sensor, which serves as a sensor for use in cooling and water treatment systems, detecting and alerting operators to potential issues before they happen. Such models are critical for industrial processes that rely on precise environmental parameter measurements.

All the EVA-2000 series products are compatible with the Advantech WISE-6610, industrial LoRaWAN gateway, allowing for easy remote creation, synchronisation of channel settings, and data rate adjustments. Once connected, application settings such as data update cycles and thresholds can be configured via downlink commands from WISE-6610, further streamlining the monitoring and management process.
