At CAS Dataloggers we have one of the best selections of wireless data logging products you will find anywhere. Wireless systems are ideal when:
- There are a number of distributed points that need to be measured
- It is difficult or expensive to run wires from the measurement points back to a central location
- The measurement points are on a moving object that prevents the use of wired sensors
- Data needs to be collected and transmitted from a vehicle while it is in motion
- Data and/or alarms need to be collected from a site that is difficult to access or does not offer regular internet connectivity.
In the table below, we have summarized some of the measurement capabilities of the different products. However, many of the key features of any wireless system including things such as wireless range, update rate and cost are based on the wireless technology that is employed. The second table summarizes some of the important parameters associated with the different wireless communications technologies.
Our largest market for wireless systems is in healthcare related applications. Here, the wireless systems are very effective for temperature monitoring in refrigerators and freezers, storage areas, and incubators. We have installed hundreds of Accsense and TandD wireless systems in clinics, hospitals, laboratories and manufacturing facilities. They also provide a very cost-effective solution for medical monitoring in pharmacies, blood banks, and food storage areas, as well as warehouses and offices. In situations where the data needs to be validated, we offer optional CFR compliant software for several models that provides transparency and guaranteed data protection.
