System and method for remote monitoring of equipment moisture exposure
The presented principles are directed to an apparatus for monitoring humidity exposure of system components, with the apparatus having sensor modules for collecting environmental data and a monitoring module with a humidity indicator and an electrical monitoring component sealed from the environment that reads a physical change in the humidity indicator to determine the humidity of the environment. An installation computer may transmit the humidity data and sensor readings, wirelessly or otherwise, to a central monitoring station for processing and storage. The humidity indicator may be disposed within an enclosure to determine the humidity within that enclosure. The humidity indicator may also be a desiccant that changes color cased on the humidity, and the electrical monitoring component may be a camera configured to take video data of the desiccant.
