The L.S. Starrett Co. has announced the introduction of DataSure 4.0, wireless data collection system for acquiring precision measurement data. With unprecedented range and data security, multiple gateways, compact size and high speed, Starrett, a forerunner in the development of data collection solutions for quality control manufacturing applications, claims the system has taken data acquisition to a new level.
The new Starrett DataSure 4.0 System operates on the latest wireless networking technology that uses short-wave radio frequencies to interconnect cell phones, computers and wireless electronic devices, enabling much faster speed, greater bandwidth and longer range for higher data throughput. The range of DataSure 4.0 is ten to twenty times that of any data collection system on the market.
DataSure 4.0 features higher bit rates and a very high-speed connection of less than 50ms of data travel time, and has an ultra-low latency network that enables high data volumes to be processed without delay, even at full capacity. Users of DataSure 4.0 can versatilely utilize multiple gateways which serve as central or distributed points for data collection, versus conventional systems that have only one gateway. The compact new gateways and repeaters can easily fit in the palm of a hand.
Starrett DataSure 4.0 is built on a highly secure proprietary wireless platform. Transported data is encrypted using a multi-layered approach that absolutely prevents any outside access to the data, whether passive or active.
With DataSure 4.0, a new network topology can be configured to many simple or complex situations and distributed remote gateways can also be utilized. Data is transmitted from gages that have either built-in radio transmitters or externally-mounted end nodes to gateways, and is operable on Android or IOS mobile platforms and Windows based computers including laptops, desktop PCs, thin client PCs, and servers. DataSure 4.0 repeater and bridge components can also connect directly to PLCs and other high-speed serial automation equipment for real-time data collection or remote machine operation.
Starrett DataSure is compatible with all Starrett electronic digital gages, as well as electronic gages of other tool manufacturers. DataSure 4.0 works with gages that have built-in wireless capability, such as the all-new Starrett W798 Calipers, W733.1 Micrometers and W2900 Indicators, or via Starrett and other tool manufacturers’ electronic gages by externally mounting Starrett DataSure End Nodes on the gages. The new Starrett Wireless Tools as well as the DataSure 4.0 End Nodes include an IP67 level of protection for use in harsh shop environments. In addition, DataSure 4.0 End Nodes are rechargeable, eliminating battery replacement and associated costs.
