  • Wireless Temperature Transmitters – Benefits and Drawbacks

    What is a wireless temperature transmitter? First, let’s define what a temperature transmitter (TT) is in general. A TT is a device that both measures the temperature of something, like a room, and transmits the signal to another location to be use to control a piece of equipment or to record the temperature of something. A…
