Triaxial MEMS Accelerometers with temperature sensor

IOLITEi-3xMEMX-ACC-T Triaxial MEMS Accelerometer with optional temperature sensor

Enhanced Features for Structural Monitoring: Introducing the IOLITEi-3xMEMS-ACC-T with Temperature Sensor

Introducing the  IOLITEi-3xMEMS-ACC-T which is a triaxial MEMS Accelerometer includes an option that features an external temperature sensor. Firstly, this is an exciting innovation for those involved in monitoring various infrastructures like bridges and wind turbines.

Why the Addition of a Temperature Sensor Matters

Firstly, it boasts an added M8 connector at its forefront. This connector is explicitly designed for the addition of a temperature sensor. Therefore, adding temperature data into structural monitoring applications has never been easier or more cost-effective.

For those dealing with different environments or those who need different levels of protection, both the IOLITEi (with an IP20 rating) and the IOLITEiw (with an IP67 rating) variants are available with this external temperature sensor option.

Compatibility and Specifications

It’s crucial to note that the IOLITEi-3xMEMS-ACC-T is compatible with a dedicated temperature sensor which needs to be ordered separately. Named the DS-TEMP-1WIRE-M8-Xm, this temperature sensor communicates using the 1-wire protocol with the 3xMEMS-ACC device. The ‘X’ in the product name refers to the cable length, and customers can choose from three lengths: 2 m, 5 m, and 10 m, with the latter being the maximum length available.

Here’s a concise look at the DS-TEMP-1WIRE-M8 temperature sensor’s specifications:

  • Measurement range: -55°C to 125°C
  • Accuracy: ±0.5°C (specifically between -10°C to 85°C)
  • Resolution: 0.063°C
  • IP rating: IP66

Such specifications highlight the sensor’s robustness and its capability to provide accurate temperature measurements in a wide range of conditions.

Software Support for IOLITEi-3xMEMS-ACC-T Triaxial MEMS Accelerometer with Temperature Sensor option.

For users of the DewesoftX software platform, the IOLITEi-3xMEMS-ACC-T is fully supported starting from version 2023.4 onwards. This ensures seamless integration and usage for those already familiar with the platform.

Closing Thoughts

The introduction of the IOLITEi-3xMEMS-ACC-T and its ability to incorporate temperature readings heralds a significant improvement for professionals in the structural monitoring sector. As we move towards a world where precision is paramount, such enhancements are not just welcome but essential. Finally, with the right tools, professionals can ensure the safety and longevity of structures and, by extension, the people who rely on them.
