These new generation sensors are capable of measuring vibration (AX3D), inclination (Hi-INC) and shock (AX3DS) or combination of thrice (X-INC). With lossless data transmission feature and flexible options of power supply, WiLow sensors are ideal to be used for structural health monitoring applications. They also offers a rapid return of investment to the users due to the low installation cost and eliminating the needs for complex wiring in sensors implementations.
IoT Ready Sensor | WiLow
The WiLow sensor is a new generation of Wifi sensors that can reliably measure vibration, inclination and shock. It incorporates a reliable, ultra-low power and open standard Wifi technology with 2.4GHz frequency band (IEEE 801.11 b/g/n). This IoT ready sensor is encased with a rugged, waterproof aluminium casing with IP67 protection.
With an embedded data logger, the WiLow sensor is capable to store up to 5 millions data point with outstanding “Store and Forward+” feature. This means data will be stored in a Wifi access point or Wifi receiver and they will be transmitted to the network at regular transmission cycle. Network disruption will not affect the data transfer as they will be re-transmitted to the network on the next transmission cycle. This creates a lossless data transmission feature that avoid loss of invaluable data
The WiLow Iot ready sensor also offers smart and flexible power supply that is compatible with USB or solar panel. The WiLow shock sensor, in particular, incorporates a smart shock detection (SSD) technology that wake up the sensors upon shock detection above a certain threshold. This further reduces the sensors’ power consumption and the sensors can be used reliably for long-term monitoring in a remote location.
WiLow Applications in Structural Health Monitoring
Their ultra low power consumption, wireless monitoring capability and reliable data transmission make WiLow sensor an ideal solution for structural health monitoring of structures, such as bridges or dams. As WiLow sensors can be easily connected to the existing WiFi infrastructure, users can benefit from a rapid return of investment as well as other benefits such as:
Lower total installation costs
Eliminate the need for complex wiring infrastructure
Easy provisioning and IT friendly
