Essential Info

TempAlert® has been designed for reliable monitoring of areas where high and low temperature limits are critical. TempAlert measures temperatures from 30 to +130 degrees F (34 to +54 degrees C). Simply select an acceptable temperature range by setting the adjustable high and low limit stops. If temperature in the monitored area either rises or falls to the limit stops, the temperature indicator will contact one of the limit stops. This completes the circuit and provides you with a dry contact alarm signal. The TA1 contacts are normally open dry contacts rated at 50 mA at 12 VDC. This output can be used to activate alarm systems, telephone dialers, or other remote warning devices. TempAlert is the ideal addition for any security system.

    Great, no frills, analog temp sensor. I'm using this, tied to the digital input on my Axis camera, to monitor a computer room. It's dead simple and does exactly what it's supposed to do.
