Wireless Telemetry 2 KHz Strain Gauge Acquisition Module (T24-SAf)

This acquisition module provides high speed measurement of strain gauge, pressure, linear displacement and other strain gauge based sensors including loadcells.  The small module size allows for the option of embedding it within the sensor housing.

Low power modes allow the module to ‘power off’ completely and can be controlled by other T24 products such as the handheld displays or a base station. The module can be configured to last several years on 2 x alkaline AA batteries or alternatively powered from 2 x NiMH or 1 x 3V Lithium.

The high speed electronics deliver low drift results which are transmitted at a rate of 2000 readings per second to other T24 devices such as analog outputs and base stations etc.

Although this module can be used ‘as is’ for OEM solutions there are a number of enclosure options available. See ‘Related Products’ tab.

Integral antenna option offers up to 100m (325 ft) range and external antenna options allows up to 200m (650 ft) range in an open field site. The module is configured using free T24 Toolkit software which runs on a PC connected to a T24 base station.

The licence free 2.4GHz direct sequence spread spectrum (DSSS) radio technology offers high integrity, error free communications which can co-exist with other wireless technologies such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth® and Zigbee®. FCC, ETSI and IC approvals.
