SensorConnect has to be used our 200 series products, found here. There are many how-to videos to help user's get up and running, found here.

Utilize the Bandwidth Calculator to determine how many nodes can be ran on one base station.

The 200 series wireless nodes have 16 Mbytes of datalogging memory.  

Now the question arises, ‘how long can a node datalog before its memory is full?’. The answer is that it varies depending on how many channels are being sampled, sample rate, and data type. Here are two examples:

V-Link-200 set so that channel 1 is enabled with a sample rate 2048 Hz, and data type of Float(4 byte).  Our calculation would be:

  • 1 channel x 2,048 samples per second = 2,048 data points per second
  • 2.048 data points x 4 byte float data packet = 8,192 bytes per second
  • 16 MB (rounded down) ÷ 8,192 bytes per second = 1953 seconds (rounded down)
  • 1953 seconds ÷ 60 seconds per minute = ~32 minutes to fill the memory

G-Link-200 set so that channels 1, 2 and 3 are enabled with a sample rate of 32 Hz, and data type of int24(3 byte).  Our calculation would be:

  • 3 channels x 32 samples per second = 96 data points per second
  • 96 data points x 3 byte int24 data packet = 288 bytes per second
  • 16 MB (rounded down) ÷ 288 bytes per second = 55,555 seconds (rounded down)
  • 55,555 seconds ÷ 60 seconds per minute = ~925 minutes (~15 hours) to fill the memory
