Low-power, wireless data connectivity with Loadsensing by Worldsensing

The Worldsensing and Measurand partnership means Loadsensing Digital Loggers will now be able to provide wireless communications capacity and autonomous power supply for Measurand ShapeArray™ sensors, giving engineering teams better access to critical real-time geotechnical monitoring data.

DATA MANAGEMENT AND AUTONOMOUS POWER SUPPLY

Data management and autonomous power supply of up to 100 ShapeArray segments and up to 7.4 years.

LONG-RANGE WIRELESS CONNECTIVITY

Long-range wireless connectivity of up to 12 kilometres or 7 miles through a LoRa star network topology that is not affected by radio signal obstructions, doesn’t require repeaters or network planning and is not critical path-dependent.

DATA AT YOUR FINGERTIPS

.DAT file format from the Connectivity Management Tool by Loadsensing is compatible with the Measurand SAASuite Software.

DURABILITY

Robust, small and weather-proof box that is IP67 and tested from -40ºC to 80ºC.

PROVEN TRACK RECORD

Worldsensing has a proven track record as a pioneer in the Industrial IoT field.

SCALABILITY

By using the Loadsensing digital logger with ShapeArray, experts and engineers tasked with monitoring can now easily scale their deployments supported by reliable, wireless monitoring insights.

“We are delighted to add Measurand’s ShapeArray to our list of sensor integrations. By combining the Loadsensing Digital Logger with ShapeArray, experts and engineers tasked with monitoring can now easily scale their deployments with our reliable, wireless monitoring solution.”
