We have two good news to share with everyone: The first news is that we have limited stocks of magnet mounts for our ultra-low power wireless vibration sensors available now. The second news is that 64-bit OS of the wireless gateway is ready to use, which improves the performance of the wireless gateway significantly.
There have been strong demands of magnet mounts for our wireless vibration sensors. Though magnet mounts have drawback of attenuating high frequency signals, they are very convenient to use. You just need to screw the wireless vibration sensors to the magnet mount base, and attach the sensor with magnet mount to machines to be monitored. The whole process takes less than a minute.
The weight of the magnet mount is 45g (1.6oz). The height of the magnet mount with H-shape legs is 17.7mm (0.7inch); Its diameter is 26mm (1.02 inch). The top of the magnet mount has M6 screw that can be screwed into the bottom of Broadsens's SVT-A series wireless vibration and temperature sensors directly. The H-shaped legs allow the sensor to be mounted to both flat or curved structures easily. To use the magnet mounted sensor, please make sure to slowly touch one leg of the mount to the structure surface, and then slowly lower the other leg to the structure to avoid shocks to the wireless vibration sensors.
Broadsens's wireless gateways have Linux OS installed with edge computing ability. The new 64-bit OS improves the wireless gateway's performance significantly when a user wants to take data of multiple wireless vibration sensors continuously for a long time. Per our testing, the 64-bit OS allows GU200S with 2GB RAM to take data of four sensors at 3.2kHz sampling rate non-stop for more than two days smoothly. With original 32-bit OS, it is recommended to not take data continuously for more than 2 hours, or to use MQTT protocol to send out raw data in real time to a more powerful server to take data (in this case, there is no limit on how long a user takes data). Users can download the new 64-bit OS image from the links provided by Broadsens.
