LoadSense-Receiver Interface


The wireless receiver is used in conjunction with the wireless Load Sensor. It provides the user with an easy way to receive and output data from the Load Sensor. Enclosed in a hardwearing aluminium box, the receiver can be installed into environments where it may be subjected to harsh conditions.

The receiver is easy to install as it only requires DC power to be supplied to the unit. An SMA connector allows the use of an external antenna. It outputs a string of data from the Load Sensor which includes: Serial number, full scale, Load, Temperature, RSSI and battery voltage.

The data is constantly outputted from the receiver straight from “power on” as long as the Load Sensor is in range. The output can be provided as either RS232, RS422, USB or Analog. This provides the functionality of being able to send the data over a longer distance if the receiver was to be in a remote location.

The interface is suitable for applications where no user interaction is needed and data is fed into a data logger or remote display. Internal memory with real-time clock is available for stand-alone applications which may be interrogated from a PC.

Key Benefits:

  • Small Footprint (133mm x 67mm x 43.5mm)
  • Receives data up to a distance of 100M
  • Receives data at 10 times a second
  • Minimal startup time
  • Very simple installation
  • Operates on 2.4GHz licence free band

We have been manufacturing quality torque measurement solutions and wireless load sensors for over 40 years. Sensor Technology Ltd was initially set up in a converted water mill in the Cotswolds, from 1976 until 2004, when commercial functions moved to Heyford Park near Bicester. Heyford Park was just off the M40 motorway, which was great, and we were next door to a sister company. However, growth of TorqSense sales and the launch of LoadSense and HeliNav encouraged the directors to reassess. Therefore in 2009 we moved all departments together into one building at Apollo Park in Wroxton. Considerably more space has been allocated to manufacturing, calibration, test, packaging and dispatch than was available at Heyford. Above all, open plan offices will ensure efficient communications between the various departments. A dedicated conference suite will make meetings more comfortable.
