This "Plug and Play" setup for Gill Sensor installations is ideal for remote areas where the 220 VAC power required to operate the sensor is difficult or expensive to provide.
Since the Gill Sensor employs a permanent magnet sensor, it only needs power for measurement and display, and therefore does not need to be powered continuously.
The enclosure has a micro-switch that powers the Gill Sensor when the enclosure door opens. This way the battery life of the Gill Sensor with 4 x 9V alkaline batteries is in excess of 6 months. With a larger Li-Ion battery pack, the expected battery life is two years.
