Point-to-Point Range for Accsense Monitoring Systems

Wireless Monitoring and Alarming for Healthcare and Industry

CAS DataLoggers manufactures and supplies its Accsense monitoring and alarming systems to provide users with cloud-based data storage and reporting and also serves as a convenient temperature alarm system complete with email, pager, and phone alert capabilities. Combined with the Accsense Wireless Data Logger Gateway, these cost-effective data loggers offer customers a complete wireless monitoring system with the ability to view and remotely access data in real-time, transmitting recorded temperature data online for easy storage and analysis. Accsense automated monitoring eliminates the need for manual recording and is much less expensive, more reliable, and offers more data storage and regulatory documentation.

Point to Point Range

The optimal range for Pod-to-Pod or Pod-to-Gateway communication is as follows:

Station-to-Station*

8-Pod Mesh*
Indoors – Hospital

10-15m (30-50ft)

80-120m (260-400ft)
Indoors – Food Plant

20-30m (65-100ft)

160-240m (520-780ft)
Indoors – Warehouse

50-60m (165-200ft)

400-540m (1300-1800ft)
Indoors – Mfg Plant

20-30m (65-100ft)

160-240m (520-780ft)
Outdoors

80-100m (260-330ft)

640-800m (2100-2600ft)

 

*Individual results may vary.

To measure your signal quality, login to your Accsense account and use the “Link Quality” feature, which is based on the signal error rate of the last received data packet. This measurement is sent by each Pod with every data sample.

p2p-accsense-1The link quality is displayed with other sensor data as a percentage range from 0-100%. If this number is not 99-100%, then there are errors in the data transmission. You can also set alarms for your link quality in addition to loss-of-signal alarms.

Antenna Radiation

For optimal signal strength, note that the radio signal for the antenna on your pod or gateway radiates in a horizontal circular pattern. If you want your signal to radiate in this direction, just place the antenna straight up, as seen in Figure 1. However, if you want the signal to radiate vertically instead, then place the antenna in a sideways or horizontal direction, as see in Figure 2.
