Wireless telemetry system gets transmission range upgrade
A new, upgraded version of its T24 wireless telemetry sensor system for multiple data acquisition in real time has been released by Mantracourt. The new sensor system’s improvements include a 4x increase in transmission range, improved security features and smarter diagnostics.
Mantracourt has heeded the needs of OEMs and integrators who require a system designed to suit the many and varied applications they encounter, modularity is the key feature of the system and it can easily replace wired systems, reducing both installation and maintenance costs.
The new system has retained the exceptional features of the original T24 system including high measurement/low noise electronics, long battery life of up to five years and proprietary license-free 2.4GHz DSSS radio technology but the new upgrades make the system even more desirable.
Latest upgrades include an increase in transmission range, allowing the system to transmit data up to 800 m (1/2 mile). For added security Mantracourt has improved the existing toolkit software to enable users to assign security keys to the system and have also improved functionality to allow smarter diagnostics.
New features include improved monitoring of the channels and as well as the ability to check radio link quality, execute commands and view and alter parameters.
Engineers at Mantracourt have also redesigned the integrated radio module and antennae to improve signal strength and integrity resulting in improved performance and coverage in the challenging environments where the systems are often used.
The system comprises a range of transmitters, interfaces, displays and output modules that can be simply and easily configured to suit individual applications.
The transmitter modules have been designed to collect data from a huge range of industrial sensors including load, pressure, torque, strain, temperature, pulse, potentiometer and 4-20 mA/0-10 V conditioned sensors.
Mantracourt is also providing free data logging and visualisation software. This allows users to log up to 100 channels and build visual mapping displays. Alarms can be set that can indicate under and over range and can alert users to loss in communication, low battery and error reports.
In recognition that we now work in an increasingly mobile world, Mantracourt has also included a built-in web server that provides a summary view page to other computers, tablets and smart phones, both Apple and Android.
