Wireless Sensor Networks

As one of the first companies to utilize wireless sensor capabilities to allow digital sensors to interact with personal computers and the internet, LORD Microstrain® wireless sensor networks (WSN) enable simultaneous, high-speed sensing and data acquisition from multiple wireless strain gauges, accelerometers, temperature, and millivolt inputs for a variety of applications and industries.

With our input sensors, companies can convert wired sensors they currently have into dispersed wireless networks with versatile sensor input nodes. Nodes that incorporate integrated sensors are also available, allowing for all-in-one functionality.

Our wireless nodes are a great addition to remote and embedded monitoring systems, removing the need for wire installation and maintenance. These wireless nodes are compatible with a large variety of sensors and packaging possibilities, letting businesses configure their preferred network quickly and efficiently.

What is a Wireless Sensor Network (WSN)?

WSNs are spatially distributed autonomous sensors to monitor physical or environmental conditions, such as temperature, sound, and pressure, and to cooperatively pass their data through the network to other locations.
