Sensors Expo 2018: Wireless Sensors Enable Rapid Remote Remedies

LORD Sensing, MicroStrain expands its sensing arsenal with two wireless sensors that enable OEMs to remotely collect data from a range of sensor types. Proven viable for electric vehicle fuel cell condition monitoring, the TC-Link-200-OEM allows users to remotely collect data from a range of temperature sensor types including thermocouples, resistance thermometer, and thermistors. The technology was developed for use with common temperature probes, includes cold junction compensation for thermocouples and linearization of all temperature measurements. The nodes support high resolution, low noise data collection at rates up to 128Hz. The new sensor is miniature, light weight and designed to be easily embedded. Many of the same features found on other LORD wireless products are included on the TC-Link®-200-OEM.


Intended to be used with strain gauges (Wheatstone bridge input), SG-Link®-200-OEM was an early adopter for monitoring mining equipment. The sensor also allows users to remotely collect data from a range of sensor types, including strain gauges, pressure transducers and accelerometers. The node includes on-board shunt calibration for easy in-situ strain gauge calibration and supports high resolution, low noise data collection from one differential and one single-ended input channel at sample rates up to 1kHz. A digital input allows compatibility with a hall effect sensor for reporting RPM and total pulses, making the sensor ideal for many torque sensing applications.

Fierce AI Week
