V-Link 200 wireless node

Pages

LORD Sensing Wireless Sensor Networks enable simultaneous, high-speed sensing and data aggregation from scalable sensor networks. Our wireless sensing systems are ideal for test and measurement, remote monitoring, system performance analysis, and embedded applications.

The G-Link-200-OEM has an on-board triaxial accelerometer that allows high-resolution data acquisition with extremely low noise and drift. Additionally, derived vibration parameters allow for long-term monitoring of key performance indicators while maximizing battery life.

Users can easily program nodes for continuous, periodic burst, or event-triggered sampling with the SensorConnect software. The optional web-based SensorCloud interface optimizes data aggregation, analysis, presentation, and alerts for sensor data from remote networks.
