MicroStrain Announces 6X Speed Improvement for All 2.4 GHz Wireless Sensor Nodes


Agile-Link® wireless nodes now feature real-time streaming rates up to 4 KHz

Williston, Vermont - February 5, 2007 - MicroStrain Inc has released the latest version of its Agile-Link® wireless nodes which feature real-time streaming rates up to 4 KHz. This is a significant increase in sample rate, which opens up many new applications for wireless sensor networks. The Agile-Link nodes which support high-speed streaming rates are: G-Link ® wireless triaxial accelerometer node, V-Link ® wireless voltage node and SG-Link® wireless strain gauge node. These nodes continue to offer incredible flexibility with low-duty cycle mode and stand alone data-logging capability.

Applications:

o Condition based monitoring of machinery for predictive maintenance.
o Impact and crash testing.
o Measuring torque, strain and load on rotating equipment.
o Vibration monitoring and modal analysis.

Specifications:
o Supports simultaneous streaming of real-time, high-speed data from up to 16 nodes.
o RF communications band: 2.4 GHz direct sequence spread spectrum, IEEE 802.15.4 radio standard.
o Wireless communications range: 70 meters line-of-sight with standard antennas or 300 meters line-of-sight with high-gain antennas.
o Real-time streaming rates up to 4 KHz.
o Data-logging sample rates up to 2048 Hz.
o 2 MB Flash memory stores up to 1,000,000 data points.
o Internal lithium ion rechargeable battery and advanced energy saving features
o Open serial protocol enables users to develop high speed applications in LabVIEW - other operating modes are supported in LabVIEW, Visual Basic and C++ using low-cost software development kit.
