Ambient Temperature Range Extender

PN 101693


The Ambient Range Extender is designed to measure the air temperature in environments with metal surfaces. It lifts the sensor from the surface and measures the temperature in such a way that the temperature reading is not the surface temperature but rather the ambient air temperature.

As metal adversely affects radio range as well, it has a built-in range extender that gives a 2x to 4x range improvement.


  • Faster and simpler installation
  • Good range and robust connectivity in challenging environments
  • Correct temperature readings of the ambient temperature, as opposed to the surface temperature

Typical use

  • Fridges
  • Freezers
  • Cooler boxes
  • Cold storage facilities
  • Ventilation systems



Installation in cold environments

Attaching a sensor using the tape on the back in cold environments can result in the sensor not sticking immediately. If this happens, we suggest the following:

  • Increase the temperature of the tape and the surface for mounting
  • Use a different adhesive that is specifically engineered and designed to work in cold temperatures.
