MicroStrain Expands LXRS™ “Lossless” Sensor Family to Include Wireless Thermocouple and OEM Analog Sensor Nodes

Share Article

MicroStrain sensing solutions provide the reliability of hardwired systems with wireless simplicity and cost savings. Now, the LXRS “Lossless” protocol is supported on even more MicroStrain wireless sensors.

New LXRS wireless thermocouple nodes and wireless OEM analog sensor nodes are added to MicroStrain Lossless sensing family

MicroStrain’s LXRS™ sensing solutions support high-performance monitoring without the need for hardwires

MicroStrain’s LXRS™ wireless sensor network combines a groundbreaking lossless data wireless communication protocol with ultra-stable precision time sync and network scalability.

As a result, MicroStrain sensing solutions provide the reliability of hardwired systems with wireless simplicity and cost savings.

LXRS™ supports a broad range of measurement capabilities including acceleration, displacement, environmental, and most analog sensor inputs.

Now, the LXRS “Lossless” protocol is supported on even more MicroStrain wireless sensors.

New LXRS Wireless Sensing Solutions include TC-Link® wireless thermocouple nodes as well as SG-Link®-OEM wireless analog sensor nodes.

LXRS enables MicroStrain wireless sensors to provide 100% packet success rate under most operating conditions while maintaining extended range radio link to 2 kilometers, supporting continuous, burst, and hybrid sampling modes, and maintaining time synchronization within +/- 32 microseconds.

In addition to more reliable data throughput, MicroStrain’s wireless thermocouple and OEM nodes provide interoperability with other LXRS wireless acceleration (G-Link®), displacement (DVRT-Link®), environmental monitoring (ENV-Link®), and multi-channel analog (V-Link® and SG-Link®) sensor nodes. Users benefit from greater wireless sensor network configuration options that easily adjust and scale their unique applications.

Synchronized data collection, combined with robust and reliable data acquisition, allows users to select lower sampling rates and reduced RF power levels. This leads to longer battery lifetimes and also enables energy harvesters to be used in place of primary batteries.
