Humidity can be misleading.
Outdoor exercise in hot, humid conditions becomes tiring and in extreme conditions, just sitting is fatiguing. Overheating can cause serious, even life-threatening conditions such as heat stress. People (especially living or working alone), may not be immediately aware of suffering from early symptoms of heat stress.
The MONEC-6 enhances the capabilities of existing controllers by monitoring the temperature, humidity and wind chill and then provides a signal of people's Perceived Temperature/Stress Level to the existing controller to correct the situation or purely as a display to indicate stress levels.
By controlling the environment according to how people feel in relation to the combined effects of temperature, humidity and wind speed, will reduces stress and improves work efficiencies resulting in overall productivity improvement.
The MONEC-6 is an innovated approach to monitoring and controlling work place environments in general and hot work zones in particular. Using state of the art technology this unique system measures not just temperature and humidity but also calculates the combined effect of these two paratmeters and wind chill to determine optimum environmental conditions for hot working conditions utilising existing control equipment.
Monitors Perceived TemperatureHumidity
Humidity is the amount of water vapour in the air. For many applications it may be described in terms of relative humidity (RH). Relative humidity is the amount of water vapour in the air compared with the amount of vapour needed to make the air saturate at the air's current temperature. For totally dry air RH = 0 % and for saturated air, RH = 100%.
