Renowned mid-century designer Charles Eames said, “The details are not the details. They make the design.” At Phase IV, we couldn’t agree more. We’ve worked hard to refine our Leap Sensors system to meet the specific requirements of our industrial clients. Today, let’s delve into some of the unique details that “make the design” of our Leap Sensors transceiver nodes.

One standout feature in our sensor transceiver nodes is the switch with an integrated LED light. This came directly from feedback from our customers, who told us they wanted to be sure that a sensor node had successfully connected to the system. A simple code of red and green lights tells you at a glance if a sensor has connected properly, or if it’s not connected, what the problem might be (it’s also fun to play with during the holidays). In addition, the button remains pressed in when the sensor is on, providing a visual confirmation that it’s active. All of this makes it easy to see if your sensor is up and running without having to navigate through complicated software settings.

We also designed this LED switch to withstand all kinds of factory conditions. It’s engineered using a robust metal industrial panel switch that is specifically designed to withstand heavy use and wear. It’s recessed into the enclosure, so it can’t be turned off accidentally if it’s bumped. You don’t have to worry that a sensor will stop monitoring your critical equipment. If you need to reset your sensor, you don’t have to wait. We’ve incorporated advanced capacitor design into Leap Sensors. This means you can reset a sensor by turning it off and immediately back on – no counting off 30 seconds. 30 seconds isn’t a lot, but it’s one less thing for you to worry about during a busy shift.

Then there’s the enclosure itself. Leap transceiver nodes use enclosures with an IP67 rating, one of the highest levels of protection offered. The enclosure offers complete protection against dust particles getting into the electronics, as well as protection against submersion in water. You can use Leap sensors in factories, labs, and other harsh environments with the confidence that they are up to the job.

 Every aspect of our Leap Sensors system is based on our 30 years of experience in wireless sensor design. We’ve worked to make our clients’ everyday life a little smoother, more reliable, and efficient. Learn more about how a Leap Sensor can benefit you too. Talk with one of our experts today.
