Williston, VT, United States, 2012/06/12 - MicroStrain earns a Silver “Best of Sensors Expo” Award for its latest LXRS™ Lossless Extended-Range Synchronized Wireless Sensor Network at the 2012 Sensors Expo & Conference in Rosemont, IL - MicroStrain.com.
This award brings MicroStrain’s total honors earned at this event to 10 Gold and 6 Silver Awards since 2001.
LXRS™ Wireless Sensors Networks use MicroStrain’s new low power "lossless" wireless communication protocols (patent pending) which support scalable networks of high speed sensor nodes without data loss. Traditional low power wireless sensors frequently suffer from lost data packets due to temporary radio frequency (RF) fading, multipath, or interference. MicroStrain’s LXRS wireless sensing systems deliver 100% reliable data throughput under most operating conditions.
"Now our customers can deploy our scalable wireless sensor networks with over a kilometer of range and get the same time synchronization and reliability of traditional hard-wired sensors”, said MicroStrain President and CEO, Steve Arms.
LXRS™ Wireless Sensing System includes:
• Lossless wireless communication protocol providing 100% packet success rate;
• Extended Range, FCC approved radio link with 2 kilometer range line of sight;
• Scalable wireless sensor networks supporting continuous, high rate burst, and hybrid sampling modes;
• Time Synchronization across all sensor nodes to +/- 32 microseconds.
“We’re proud of our consistent innovation at the industry’s leading sensors conference, Sensors Expo. Our new lossless data protocols deliver groundbreaking performance. Combined with our energy harvesters, which eliminate battery maintenance, and our SensorCloud platform, which archives big sensor data from anywhere on Earth, our sensing systems provide a total solution for the emerging internet of things”, said Mr. Arms.
