Applied Measurements has launched a radio telemetry system targeted at automotive, lifting and handling, marine, silo and weighing, theatre, outdoor, waste management and alternative energy tasks.

The T24 system is designed to connect to any strain-gauge-based sensor for the measurement of load, pressure, torque and displacement as well as standard 0-10V and 4-20mA sensors.

This means that customers are now able to connect wirelessly using low-power radio techniques, enabling data to be collected over many channels simultaneously.

The acquisition module uses a secure transmission network and provides live data over distances of up to 120m (line of sight) and even further using external antennas.

Each acquisition module can be used to supply data to several different output devices or to receive data from multiple acquisition modules.

This built-in flexibility avoids dedicated components and means that users do not need to stock application-specific modules.

The data-acquisition printed circuit boards (PCBs) have been miniaturised sufficiently so that they can be mounted directly within the sensors themselves.

This means that, if need be, the signal can be transmitted directly from the sensor (load cell, pressure transducer and so on) with no external cabling.

The T24 radio telemetry system is suitable for use in various wireless applications, including: automotive tasks, such as torque measurement; civil engineering, for monitoring anchor loads; construction, for monitoring building foundations; lifting and handling crane load pins; marine uses, such as mooring ropes; silo weighing tasks; theatre and outside events, such as stage and rigging monitoring; waste management, such as skip weighing; and alternative energy, such as wind turbines.

Approved for use by the FCC, ETSI and Industry Canada among others, the T24 system is based on a proprietary 804.15.4 chip and the range of wireless products co-exists with Bluetooth, Zigbee and WiFi devices without conflicts.

The 2.4GHz band on which it operates is licence free around the world and data being transmitted is secure as each of the radio modules uses a unique six-digit hexadecimal key and interference is avoided through the use of a proprietary protocol.

To set up the measurement, a software toolkit is supplied as a free-of-charge downloadable file (Freeware).

This provides the user with the means to view and alter the device parameters and perform the calibration of all the modules wirelessly.

Radio link quality and sensor integrity can be checked, configurations can be stored, data can be logged to a CSV file and PC-based reports can be prepared.
