Base Station Extends Range of Wireless Instrumentation

 

 

UK instrumentation specialist Mantracourt has announced the addition of a new base station to its T24 range of wireless equipment.

 

The new base station (T24-BSue) offers an extended range, with a line of sight range of up to 200 m (650 ft) for T24 acquisition modules. The T24-BSue interfaces to a PC via USB, has an IP65 (equivalent to environmental NEMA 4 rating) enclosure and is powered via USB, enabling ease of installation and ease of use.

 

The T24-BSue is also compatible with Mantracourt's T24 repeater technology, enabling impressive -line of sight operation for the T24 series of instrumentation.

 

"The T24 wireless instrumentation range is proving a big success for us," said Kelly Voysey, Sales and Marketing Manger at Mantracourt. "We have been working closely with our customers around the world, so that we can continue developing better instrumentation technology.  The T24-BSue is yet another step forward and will give engineers a lot more flexibility when implementing wireless measurement or control systems."

 

UK based Mantracourt is a world leader in the design and manufacture of electronics for measurement technologies, including strain gauge, temperature, resistance, pressure, voltage, current, potentiometer, rate, flow, LVDT and displacement in either analogue, digital or wireless form.

 

The T24-BSue is supported by Mantracourt's Log 24 and Log 100 software toolkits and also with a .DLL (Dynamic Link Library), allowing customers using VB (Visual Basic) to develop their own custom software for their applications.  The T24 range of products operates using a licence exempt 2.4 GHz radio frequency and provides 16 channels of data. With an operating temperature of -40 to +85 C, the T24-Bsue is able to cope with extreme temperatures and is already in use monitoring levels of snowfall on high altitude roads.

 

"It is clear to us that the advent of wireless instrumentation is enabling new and innovative approaches to engineering challenges that require some level of instrumentation," said Kelly Voysey. " Whether it is a remote location, moving machinery or simply a temporary installation, equipment such as the T24 range has many advantages over 'wired' installations, especially now battery life can span years if the equipment is configured appropriately."
