WSDA-2000 Network Connected Wireless Gateway

The WSDA®-2000 is a network-ready gateway for reliable data acquisition from Parker wireless and inertial sensors. The WSDA-2000 features Ethernet, USB 2.0, and J1939 CAN interfaces, as well as 4GB of on-board memory for datalogging.

Ethernet connectivity means access to your wireless sensor network from anywhere in the world. This gateway automatically pushes data to SensorCloud, where data is securely stored, viewed, and may have analytics operations or alerts set up. The WSDA-2000 also allows a remote connection so the owner can control their sensor network as if they are on-site.

Use Cases

Test and Measurement

End-to-end data acquisition system reduces the time and cost of testing.

Remotely configure and collect data from a network of nodes in real time using SensorConnect.

All nodes in the network communicate synchronized and lossless data using Lord's proprietary wireless networking protocol.

Make Spectral measurements in real time with SensorConnect's live FFT.

Impact and Event Monitoring

Event-Driven sampling allows for reporting only the data of interest around a predefined event. 

User configurable pre- and post-event duration allow you to see the data that led up to the event, and how the data progressed back to normal conditions.

Digital outputs allow physical indication of event conditions.

Equipment Condition Monitoring

Push all data to SensorCloud for long-term trend monitoring and easy access to data from anywhere in the world.

Add custom math operations and alerts to SensorCloud using MathEngine.

CAN J1939 for easy integration to existing CAN networks.




SensorConnect is the next generation in desktop sensing software.

From configuration of nodes and starting networks, to collecting and analyzing data in real-time, SensorConnect provides a modern, powerful experience with our Wireless, Inertial, and Displacement products.

Using our intelligent data collection and graphing algorithms, you are able to visualize massive amounts of data instantly, and then zoom in on points of interest just as fast.

Built in MathEngine functionality allows for both real-time and post-processed math, such as generating FFTs, averages, RMS, etc.


Free and paid plans available

SensorCloud is a unique sensor data storage, visualization, and remote management platform that leverages powerful Cloud computing technologies to provide excellent data scalability, rapid visualization, and user programmable analysis.

LORD sensors can instantly upload their data to SensorCloud via an ethernet-connected WSDA-2000. Once uploaded, your data is securely stored in the Cloud and can be accessed from anywhere, or downloaded for offline use.

Configurable alerts can be set to help notify you of real-time event in your data.

MathEngine allows you to perform analytics on your data, all in the Cloud. Pre-built functions are available for ease of use, while IPython Notebooks allow advanced users to write custom scripts to be run on their data once, or on a schedule.


Free and open source API

The MicroStrain Communication Library (MSCL) makes it simple to write code that interacts with our Wireless, Inertial, and Displacement sensors.

MSCL is completely open source and hosted on GitHub under the MIT license.

Full documentation, example code, and a quick start guide are provided to help you get started.

Available for C++, Python, and .NET.
