Using MIP Monitor software, to reset the device to the factory defaults:

  • Establish communication as normal with the sensor.
  • Click Settings.
  • Click Load Default Settings and a message box pops up.
  • Click OK and the message box disappears.
  • Click Settings again.
  • Click Save Current Settings and a message box pops up.
  • Click OK and the message box disappears.

This process does not erase any hard and soft iron calibration that may be on the device.

The Hard and Soft Iron Cal software we provide must be used to do that.

The input specification for PPS on the 3DM-GX3-25 standard and OEM  is LVTTL (low voltage TTL), 5 volt tolerant.

The -25 has a power regulator that will protect up to 15 volts.

Yes. The ENV-Link-Mini provides support for wind speed and wind direction indicators.

An example of instruments that have been proven are:

There is no self-test function on the WSDA-Base-101 Analog Base Station to test the analog outputs.

However, each channel can be tested by using whatever wireless node you have.

Using Node Commander software, confirm that any given channel on whatever wirelees node you have is working.

From there, reconfigure the sensor channel with Node Commander so that the output in Node Commander is VOLTS.

Again using Node Commander, direct the sensor output in VOLTS to each of the output channels on the backplane of the analog base station.

Using your DAQ, multi-meter or other analog measurement system, confirm that the analog voltage output matches the digital voltage output as reported by Node Commander.

Our MIP Monitor software, as written, will not allow you to save the 12 hard and soft iron calibration coefficients to a file, and then read that file back into the software to rewrite the values to the inertial sensor.

However, you cand accomplish the task by recording the values that are displayed (or take a screen grab).

This would be followed by using the data communications protocol EEPROM Write command to write the values back into the device.

This would require either a terminal program or the ability to write software, an understanding of how to construct the command packets, and a list of the EEPROM addresses involved.

Please contact your Lord MicroStrain support engineer for further details.

 

The Internal or External GPS selector refers to the function that allows the user to turn off the on-board GPS and use a computer to send GPS updates to the device.

If you are using the internal GPS, always select ‘Internal’.

Refer to the data communications protocol if you intend to supply external GPS.

MIP Monitor software also has a test function that allows you to input user selected GPS parameters.

 

In Node Commander software, on the analog pairing screen, there is a check box for "Float". What is the function of this check box?

 

 

 

If the node is configured to send data to the base station in floating point mode, you need to enable this checkbox and set the 0-3 volt scaling.

 

The WSDA-RGD (with internal GX3 inertial sensor) is configured to produce the following messages on startup.

GPS Data (1 Hz):

  • UTC Time
  • LLH Position
  • NED Velocity

AHRS Data (100 Hz):

  • Euler Angles

From this output the WSDA logs:

GPS (1 Hz):

  • latitude
  • longitude
  • height above ellipsoid
  • height above MSL
  • horizontal accuracy
  • vertical accuracy
  • speed

AHRS (100 Hz):

  • roll
  • pitch
  • yaw

The WSDA-RGD does not log any data until it gets a valid time, if it is set to get time from GPS only it will not log any output from the GX3 until the UTC timestamp from the GX3 is valid, even though the GX3 is producing valid AHRS data.

This data is not user configurable and is not available as a live stream through LiveConnect.
