Launch of Telemetry Repeater for Instrumentation
The repeater acts as a transparent link between our T24 Acquisition modules and a base station or a handheld display. The Active Repeater was originally developed to increase wireless range, achieving greater coverage for wireless technology in the construction sector.
"The development of the Active wireless Repeater helps us further build on the success of our T24 wireless range," said Kelly Voysey, Sales and Marketing Manager at Mantracourt. "The T24 range is proving a great success and is now being used in a broad range of industries worldwide."
Our T24 wireless telemetry range is a flexible low power radio system designed to enable the transmission of high accuracy measurement data from load cells, inclinometers, accelerometers, displacement and pressure sensors. With a combination of transmitter and receiver technologies, engineers are able to remotely monitor instrumentation readings.
"As many engineers will be aware, a low power telemetry system can overcome a lot of logical problems when collecting instrumentation data in difficult to access locations," said Kelly Voysey. "However, occasionally the range of this type of low power telemetry system can be a limitation, especially in a built up area. The Active Repeater enables engineers to overcome this, broadening the coverage of the system and ensuring the integrity of the data being monitored. For more remote monitoring, the T24 system can also be interfaced to a GSM system."
The T24 system has a range of up to 200m (650ft) without the use of a repeater. Using the Active Repeater will allow messages to be repeated once, which can effectively double the radio range. It is powered by either a pair of alkaline ‘D’ Cells or an external power supply (5-18 Volts) and can be configured for extended battery life. The Repeater is also enclosed in an IP65 rated NEMA4 protected enclosure, to ensure protection in hostile environments.
