Neuron Cabinet Safety

The Neuron Cabinet Safety sensor monitor the temperature in electrical installations. Faulty connections will often lead to rise in temperature. The sensor will measure the temperature and give an early warning if the heat rises in the cabinet. It is also equipped with a magnet sensor to monitor if cabinet doors are closed. The sensor is robust and suited for industrial environments.

Experience how easy it is to get started and the huge benefits of our simple and practical IoT solutions.

General Description

Temperature is a crucial parameter in electrical installations. Faulty connections will often lead to rise in temperature. Accurate measurement of temperature is therefore essential for early detection and possibly avoiding fire.

The Neuron Cabinet Safety sensor is a high precision device designed specifically for measuring the temperature in air. With a wide temperature range of -40°C to 85°C and an accuracy of ±0.5°C, this sensor is ideal for a variety of electrical installations. Compact in size at just 37mm x 23mm x 14mm, the sensor is easy to integrate into any system. It operates on a non-replaceable integrated battery allowing it to operate up to 10 years.


Principle of Operation

The Neuron Cabinet Safety measures the temperature and state of the door every 3 seconds. In the Neuron Cabinet Safety sensor, an NTC thermistor is used as the sensing element. The thermistor is placed in direct contact with a thermally conductive surface in the IP67 enclosure, allowing it to accurately measure the temperature. If the measurement has changed more than the trigger limit for critical data since the last transmission, the sensor reports immediately. Otherwise, it reports every 2 minutes. The sensor has high accuracy, wide temperature range, robust IP67 enclosure, and fast response time. The sensor comes with a magnet to ensure Open/Closed functionality.



  • Long life battery – up to 10 years lifetime
  • Continuous measurement and instant alarm
  • Adjustment of parameters such as measurement frequency on request
  • Define your own alarm levels in the Neuron app

Neuron sensors are ready for use out of the box and will start logging data after registering the sensor in the app. Even though Neuron sensors deliver great range and long battery life, following some simple guidelines for mounting of the sensor and gateway can greatly improve signal coverage and lifetime of the sensor.

To ensure optimal antenna performance and signal strength, the sensor should be placed elevated with some distance to fixed objects. Keep in mind that RF-signals are greatly affected by close metallic surfaces.

For sensors with an external antenna, the antenna should be clear off the metallic surface.

For sensors operating in environments with greatly varying temperatures, care should be taken to avoid putting the sensor in unnecessary stress. Very high or low temperatures will affect the battery life and the signal strength of the sensor. While some sensors must be close to the source of heat or cold, other sensors have external probes which allow the sensor to be placed at a distance.

The small, compact blue Neuron sensors are fitted with fastening holes for use with cable ties. The sensors are also delivered with double-sided tape that may be used for fastening of the sensors.

All the black Neuron sensors, like the Neuron IR380 and Neuron Vibration, are fitted with a strong magnet at the back for easy fastening. If there is no magnetic surface, then double-sided tape is a good solution.
