Due to strong demands and global chip shortage, Broadsens's wireless gateways are running out fast. Wireless gateways control multiple ultra-low power wireless vibration and temperature sensors. They show real-time data visualization, save data and analyze machine conditions, and send data or analysis result remotely to clouds or servers. To solve the chip shortage issue, and also bring the best value to the customers, Broadsens is going to offer a new option for wireless gateway GU200S: 2GB RAM with 32GB EMMC storage. The new option is starting to ship from March 10, 2022. EMMC offers slightly faster speed than the microSD card, which should provide slightly performance improvement. 2GB RAM allows the system run smoother with continuous data acquisition. The 32GB version GU200S wireless gateway is available to pre-order from March 5, 2022. The lead time is expected to be about 20 days due to high demand.
The main specs of the new wireless gateway GU200S is as follows:
|Microcontroller||ARM Cortex-A72 1.5Ghz 64 bit|
|Operating system||Linux Debian|
|Sensor interface||2.4GHz ultra low power protocol (FCC approved)|
|Number of wireless sensors||Up to 256 (8 SVT200-V, 248 vibration & temperature sensors).|
Recommended usage: Up to 4 SVT200-V sensors, up to ten zones, with four SVT-A series sensors at each zone for the optimal performance
|Power supply||9-18 VDC|
|Working environment||Temperature: -30℃～60℃; humidity: 10%～90%RH|
|Additional features||Real-time hardware clock; Over-the-Air update, USB interface|
Wireless gateway GU200S
Imperial unit option is also available starting from BroadVibra software version 2.3.0. The unit selection can be adjusted easily at the gateway configuration page. No system restart is required during metric and imperial unit switch. To be consistent with previous systems, the underlying data storage is based on metric unit. The MQTT data output is also based on metric unit. During data review and export, the wireless gateway automatically converts the data to the proper unit.
