Top 10 Things Leap Sensors Do That No One Else Does

Technology Explainers|

When we designed the Leap Sensor wireless sensor system, we based it on our 30 years of experience working with Fortune 500 clients on their most challenging wireless sensor projects. We’ve learned a thing or two about what industrial and commercial users really need, and because of that, the Leap Sensors system has features no one else does. Drum roll, please, because here’s a countdown of the Top Ten: […]

5 Wireless Sensor Myths – Busted!

Technology Explainers|

Watch out for the gargoyles!

As Spooky Season is upon us, it’s the perfect time to face your fears. Go to a haunted house, watch a horror movie, or–scariest of all–try out a wireless sensor system! There are plenty of urban legends surrounding wireless sensors that have turned them into a scary myth. Let’s bust those myths, because wireless sensors are a lot less “trick” and way more “treat” than you may think.

The Story Behind Leap Sensors

News|

Thomas Edison said, “Success is 1 percent inspiration – and 99 percent perspiration.” (more or less…). We have to say we agree. In this video, CEO Scott Dalgleish talks about how he saw the need for an easy-to-install, easy-to-configure, cost-effective industrial wireless sensor system. Learn how our small – but top-notch – team of engineers developed the Leap Sensors® system with industrial users in mind.

The process from getting from the idea to the finished product took several years and […]

Reduce Downtime & Improve Operational Efficiency with Automated Production & Downtime Tracking Sensors

Bilocation: the state of being or ability to be in two places at the same time. (Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary)

Don’t you sometimes wonder, when you’re sitting in a meeting, about what you might be missing outside the meeting? I think this is especially true for managers in manufacturing, as there’s so much happening on the production floor. When I started my career as a shift manager at a major coffee processing plant, I once […]

Muscle Cars and Industrial Maintenance

Phase IV Company|

By Scott Dalgleish, CEO of Phase IV Engineering

At my 20th high school reunion, I received the award for “Still Driving the Same Car I Had in High School.” This may sound ridiculous, but in my case this is something to be proud of. After all it’s a classic muscle car, a 1971 Oldsmobile Cutlass 442 convertible. I bought it when it was considered “just an old car” with money I saved from my summer lawn mowing […]

Phase IV’s Wireless Sensors for Structural Health Monitoring Featured in Civil & Structural Engineer Magazine

News|

Thanks to Civil & Structural Engineer for featuring us in their latest issue. Our CEO, Scott Dalgleish, talks about how we relish the challenge of solving difficult sensing problems, especially when it is for something as critical as Structural Health Monitoring (SHM). Read the full article.

Worried about Water Damage? Introducing Our Wireless Flood Sensor

New Products, Technology Explainers|

A Forbes magazine article published in 2021 stated that “A study of 729,999 commercial and residential properties in the contiguous U.S. concluded that floods will cost businesses $26.8 billion in direct lost output and $23 billion in lost output due to downtime in 2022.” And this doesn’t include risks to civil structures such as tunnels or underpasses. Clearly, water damage, whether from burst pipes, leaks, or flooding, is a major concern. Because of this, Phase IV has developed a […]

The Top 5 Sensors for Structural Health Monitoring (SHM)

Technology Explainers|

We recently introduced our range of Leap Sensors for structural health monitoring (SHM) using the IoT. Structural health monitoring is the process of regularly checking infrastructures such as roads, bridges, buildings, tunnels, etc. for changes that may indicate deterioration or recent damage. Most of this is still done with physical inspections, but advances in wireless sensor technology now make it possible to install remote monitoring systems. With regular, consistent monitoring, it’s a lot […]

How Do Cellular IoT Sensors Work?

New Products, Technology Explainers|

Do you need to monitor something in a remote location? Or maybe need to just monitor a couple of things for a short amount of time? Or do you want to make installing some sensors as simple as possible? The Leap Sensor’s cellular IoT sensor transceiver node can be a great solution. […]

Convert an Analog Input Sensor to Wireless? We Can Do That.

New Products, Technology Explainers|

The flexibility of the Leap Sensors platform means you can convert almost any off-the-shelf sensor to a wireless sensor.

While our Leap Sensors system includes a wide range of sensor options, there may be times when you have a specific monitoring need. This is why Phase IV has made it easy to integrate almost any off-the-shelf sensor with the common 4-20 mA or 10-volt inputs into a Leap wireless transceiver node. The long-life battery in the transceiver node then powers […]
