Large format wireless instrumentation display

Large format (100 mm) wireless LED display enables the remote display of instrumentation data

Mantracourt has announced the release of the T24-LD1, a large format LED display that has been designed to integrate into their highly respected T24 wireless instrumentation range of products.

The T24-LD1 is a four-digit display with 100 mm (4 inch) character format that enables the remote display of instrumentation data from multiple wireless sensors such as strain gauges, load cells and wind speed sensors.

The display is ideal for application use in process control, lifting and handling, waste management, civil engineering, agriculture and silo management.

"Until now, data from the T24 wireless sensors has been mostly logged on a PC for collection and analysis or displayed on one of our handheld devices," said Dave Porter, Technical Sales at Mantracourt. "More recently, we have seen a demand for a larger more visible, rugged display, hence the development of the T24-LD1 which is now available as a part of the T24 range."

The Mantracourt 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, temperature, displacement and pressure sensors. With a combination of transmitter and receiver technologies, engineers are able to remotely monitor instrumentation readings.

Using the T24 PC based T24-Toolkit software and T24 USB Base Station the user can quickly and easily select and configure the acquisition devices to be summed on the T24-LD1 display. The T24 Toolkit also provides advanced user control over the wireless aspects of the system as well as a ‘System Zero’ function, a Tare function and ability to display data from a single sensor.

"Wireless instrumentation is enabling engineers to undertake measurement and control in ways that were not possible before," said Dave Porter. "Whether it is rotating machinery, equipment located in a hazardous area such as a construction site, a temporary installation that would not justify permanent wiring, or even difficult to access locations, our T24 range is enabling engineers around the world to take a new approach to how they can use instrumentation in the field."
