All LORD MicroStrain wireless sensor nodes, wireless base stations, and wireless sensor data aggregators are shipped from the factory with their radio frequency set to channel 15 (2.425 GHz).

This channel setting was established during 2012.

Previously all wireless products were set to channel 25 (2.475 GHz).

If you are mixing new nodes and base stations with older nodes and base stations, please be cognizant of these different channel settings.

The Node Discovery function of Node Commander will help you sort out which nodes are on what channels; Node Discovery is channel independent and allows the base station to communicate with any node, no matter what channel it is on

Sampling methods such as synchronized sampling, low duty cycle, network broadcast, etc. require that all nodes are on the same frequency so you will want to insure that you have adjusted the channels settings of the nodes to suit.

As an example. here is the Quick Start Guide for the M-DVRT-9: http://files.microstrain.com/Micro_Sub_DVRT_Quick_Start_Guide.pdf

Page 7 refers to the Slope and Offset that you will need to enter into the Smart Motherboard software.

In the Smart Motherboard software, click Tools.

Click Configuration and the Configuration screen appears.

Select the appropriate channel (remember that each channel, i.e., each DVRT and DEMOD –DVRT signal conditioner card in the Smart Motherboard is calibrated separately) by checking the Channel check box.

Select the Linear Radio Button.

Enter the Slope and Offset in the number scroll boxes.

Select None in the Peak Detect drop-down.

Change the Units from Volts to mm (for millimeters) by wiping through with your mouse.

Click File.

Click Save As Default.

Click File.

Click Return and you are ready to sample in millimeters.

The MG-DVRT Microminiature Gauging and SG-DVRT Subminiature Gauging Differential Variable Reluctance Transducers are typically calibrated with their signal conditioning electronics at the factory. These calibrations are highly accurate and are always recommended. However, under certain conditions the user may determine that a field calibration should be performed. This technical note provides a step-by-step instruction to field calibration and assumes the user is familiar with the DVRT displacement transducer and its signal conditioning electronics (Motherboard, Smart Motherboard, or DEMOD-DC).

A run-time component named ' tabctl32.ocx' has not been automatically registered with your Windows system for some reason.

Let’s register it manually:

Download the component http://download.microstrain.com.s3.amazonaws.com/component.zip.

Unzip the file.

Copy the component into the following folder on your computer: C:\WINDOWS\system32.

Click the Windows Start.

Click Run.

The Run window will appear.

Cut and paste (or type) this command into the Open drop-down box: regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\tabctl32.ocx

Click OK and you will receive a confirming message that the component has been registered.

Click OK in the message box.

Now try your Smart Motherboard application and the error will have been cured.

 

From time to time, MicroStrain releases firmware upgrades for its 3DM-GX3® inertial sensors. These firmware upgrades represent operating improvements, new functions, etc. In most cases, the user may download these upgrades and perform the upgrade using a simple step-by-step process. This technical note describes which firmware upgrades may be accomplished by the user and which firmware upgrades must be done at the factory. Familiarity with 3DM-GX3® operation is assumed. The upgrade procedure employs a Microsoft Windows computer and the Microsoft HyperTerminal utility.

The LORD MicroStrain 3DM-GX3-45 high-performance, miniature GPS-Aided Inertial Navigation System (GPS/INS) combines MEMS inertial sensors, a highly-sensitive embedded GPS receiver, and a complex Extended Kalman Filter to generate optimal position, velocity, and attitude (PVA) estimates. It is currently available with RS-232 and USB communication interfaces. A wireless communication interface can easily be added by employing off-the-shelf Bluetooth RS-232 adapters.
