MSCL and other APIs

The MicroStrain Communication Library (MSCL) makes it simple to write code that interacts with our Wireless sensors. It is hosted on GitHub and is completely open source under the MIT License. Full documentation, example code, and a quick start guide are provided to help you get started.

If MSCL doesn’t meet your needs, Data Communication Protocols are available in the Protocols section of LORD Sensing’s GitHub page.

SensorCloud also provides a REST API to allow any data to be uploaded as you see fit. You can access it in the SensorCloud section of our GitHub page.
