RF TeleProbe™ Wireless Temperature Probes

Systems ECS Staff 07/30/2021

Some compost is not kind to electrical cables.  For those facilities, ECS developed a wireless temperature probe, the RF TeleProbe™. The RF TeleProbe™ delivers accurate wireless compost temperature data for process control and regulatory compliance. Twenty years of continuous improvement have endowed the RF TeleProbe™ with the industry’s best battery life and data rates in a super robust package. No wonder it has been the repeated choice at the industries largest and most demanding composting facilities.

When you need accurate wireless compost temperature data for process control or compliance, the RF TeleProbeTM is the industry’s leading choice.

Your markets demand consistent product quality and your compost facility must meet increasing levels of regulatory scrutiny.
The RF TeleProbeTM provides operators with a robust tool to help meet both of these challenges.

This field-proven wireless temperature monitoring system accurately measures and records pile temperature data, 24/7, regardless of weather conditions.

The layout of many large facilities makes implementing a hard-wired temperature monitoring system impractical. Acquiring temperature data by walking the piles with a hand-held device is labor intensive and, if forced aeration is used, too infrequent to make timely adjustments to air delivery rates.

The RF TeleProbeTM can also interface with second party SCADA systems via the industry standard MODBUS communication protocol. If you need to control aeration and odor scrubbing technologies, the RF TeleProbeTM can be integrated seamlessly into the full featured ECS CompTrollerTM aeration control and monitoring system.
