Advanced logic processing

The TBox Nano is so much more than a battery-powered data logger. Combining the logic and control capability of an RTU and the ultra-low power operation of a wireless logger the TBox Nano removes the necessity for multiple devices for one application. Its digital output and logic processing capability means it operates like an RTU, enabling you to control your remote dispersed assets wirelessly.

Advanced logic processing

Exceptional battery life

The TBox Nano can be supplied with a high-power lithium battery that provides the TBox Nano with an exceptional battery life of up to ten years. The TBox Nano can be configured depending on the application to acquire, process and transmit data at set intervals and will only wake from its sleep-mode when configured to do so maximising battery lifetime.

Exceptional battery life

Rugged design

The TBox Nano is built within an IP68-rated rugged, submersible casing, which means it can submersed up to four metres for four days. The robust design combined with a wide operating temperature range of -40oC to +70oC and a range of mounting options means that the TBox Nano can be used to monitor and control assets in the most remote and harshest environments.

Rugged design

Data logging

The TBox Nano’s expansive historical data storage capacity means that it can log hundreds of thousands of time-stamped event-driven records and transmit data wirelessly, year after year.

Data logging

Push notifications and alarm management

Using advanced push notification technology the TBox Nano automatically sends a multimedia message at a specified time or following a programmed state change via email or SMS to multiple recipients or devices. Automatically formatted, mobile-friendly reports sent by email include live and historical information, alarms and event notifications.
