Inertial sensors by Parker MicroStrain

Hoskin Scientific Ltd. is the supplier name to remember for organizations seeking world-class test and measurement instrumentation for scientific tasks. The vast product lineup includes the Parker MicroStrain portfolio of both inertial and wireless sensors. Customers can select from among a variety of high-performance, high-speed solutions to match their unique applications.

MicroStrain offers well more than a dozen models of user-friendly inertial sensors, as well as several types of wireless sensor networks.

An interchangeable product line

The MicroStrain line of inertial sensors repeatedly out-performs competing units in real-world dynamic conditions, with an interchangeable product line that offers the best price/performance value across applications. For more than 15 years, these sensors have set the standard for inertial performance industrial micro-electro-mechanical systems.

The AR series of MicroStrain inertial sensors comprises six models, while the GNSS/INS and the AHRS families each include four models. Hoskin also carries two sensors in the RTK series, three sensors in the IMU series, and one GNSS/AHRS model. Variations of these sensors include high-performance, industrial-grade, tactical-grade, and low-cost units.

Users get low power alongside high performance with MicroStrain wireless sensor nodes, which serve as all-in-one solutions with their integrated sensors. The flexibility of multi-functional sensor input nodes can be leveraged to convert LORD MicroStrain and third-party wired sensors into dispersed wireless sensor networks, or WSNs. Customers can choose from many sensing and sampling parameters, such as time-synchronized sampling, high-speed periodic burst sampling, low-duty cycle sampling, and data logging.

LORD MicroStrain WSNs allow simultaneous, high-speed sensing and data acquisition from multiple wireless strain gauges, accelerometers, temperature, and millivolt inputs. This range of wireless sensing systems are perfect for small-scale applications that require a few sensor nodes, as well as large-scale tasks that need hundreds of them. Software platforms streamline network configuration by letting users easily control sample settings and data-acquisition preferences, while deploying custom alerts, reports, and analytics. This way, users can connect with their information readily and distill actionable data on SensorCloud, either locally or autonomously.

The specific models available include ROS, SensorConnect, SensorCloud, MSCL and other APIs, MIP Monitor, and Node Commander.
