New USB T24 Telemetry Base Station Released

The T24 wireless telemetry aquisition range has expanded its portfolio of products with a new USB telemetry base station. The new T24-BSue compact USB telemetry base station sits between the miniature T24-BSu telemetry base station and the fully-featured T24-BSi industrial telemetry base station and offers an ideal mix of compact dimensions and an extended range of 200 metres. The T24-BSue’s IP65-rated (weatherproof) enclosure, shared with the T24-ACMi acquisition module, measures just 59 x 76.6 x 29mm and is manufactured in tough plastic providing excellent environmental protection whether the device is being used indoors or outside exposed to the elements. The new USB base station is fully compatible with the complete range of T24 wireless telemetry acquisition modules which includes models […]

Force Measurement Determines The Effect of Girth Tension on Horse Gait

Using electrical systems for the measurement of mechanical forces is by no means limited to machines and laboratory based applications. In her recently completed research thesis ‘Girth Tensions and their Effects on Equine Stride Characteristics’, Sue Wright of Moulton College Northampton used load cells, motion sensors and GPS amongst other technologies to measure and record the tension within the girth strap used to hold the saddle in place.

Rotary Wireless Torque Transducers Use Battery-Powered 2.4GHz Telemetry

Applied Measurements are proud to introduce the DTDR-F rotary wireless torque transducer, a novel design that expunges stator coils and inductive transmission systems from the design brief in favour of a cutting edge, battery-powered 2.4GHz wireless telemetry data acquisition and transmission system. The DTDR-F design is based on the DTD-F torque transducer, a flanged device designed for use in static and quasi-static torque measurement applications, with modifications to allow the incorporation of a pair of balanced Delrin housings, one containing the telemetry acquisition and transmission module and the other containing a 3.6V high capacity lithium-ion (Li-Ion) battery that is recharged in-situ. The DTDR-F is intended primarily for use in rotating applications at speeds of up 6500rpm where a direct, in-line […]

New Wireless Telemetry Systems For Strain Gauge Sensors

For years the demands placed on higher performance measurement systems have meant they are often less versatile than their predecessor.  More sensors means more data is acquired over an increasing number of measurement channels and with these advances has come corresponding concerns regarding cable integrity and management. This places emphasis on the test technician who is well used to swapping between sensors and matching them with the cable of the right length and appropriate connector.  Running cables across floors or through sensitive areas is at best inconvenient; with high performance cable products subject to mechanical damage throughout routine use.  Considered the weak link of many a measurement system, they are often the first focus of attention whenever measurement errors do […]

Compact Under-Hook/Lifting Gear Telemetry Load Cell & Display

The latest weighing system from Applied Measurements Ltd is one of the first of its kind to use a telemetry link between the load cell and the portable digital display instrument, thus eliminating the problems associated with a long interconnecting cable. Specifically designed for the measurement of cable tension and under hook crane and lifting gear weighing, the complete ET Telemetry Lift Link system consists of a robust telemetry load cell with an internal data transmitter with a range of 200 metres, together with a portable handheld receiver instrument, displaying the weight digitally. The ET telemetry load cell is available in ten different ranges from 0-1 to 0-500 tonnes and offers excellent performance with a repeatability of <0.05% of rated […]
