Magnetic fields will not have any impact on the performance of the G-Link-200. In fact, one of the options provided with the G-Link-200 is a 95lb pull strength magnet that gets mounted to the base of the node.

The Low Battery Indicator is a diagnostic channel that indicates the battery level of the node. It is represented by 3 possible values: 0, 1, and 2.

The “0” value indicates that the battery level is good.

The “1” value indicates that the battery level is low. At this level it is recommended that the batteries be replaced. This indicates that critical battery level is imminent. Please replace batteries when this warning indicator is thrown. Once critical battery level indicator is reached the node will stop sampling.

The “2” value indicates that the battery level is critically low. At this level the node will stop sampling.

The expected battery lifetime depends on a combination of variables, such as the sampling mode, sample rate, RF transmit power, number of active channels, etc. To determine the expected battery life of your node please use the Battery Lifetime link provided on the specific node’s product page on our website.

Yes, the inertial sensor does have a specialized mini DB9 connector which supports power, communication, and PPS functions. We recommend that you consider using our model 6224-0100 Craft Cable to make your own customized connections. This ‘craft’ cable has the mini DB9 on one end and 9 each 18-inch color-coded flying leads on the other. With this flexibility you can craft any power and/or communication and/or PPS configuration that suits by applying your own connectors, power sources, lengths, etc. Click here for a link to the craft cable mechanical drawing.
