Industrial Grade Wireless Vibration Sensor, Accelerometer


Vibration sensor can measure G-forces . Vibration sensor takes a simple yet highly effective approach in monitoring maximum and average g-force trends of +/-16G and can sample at up to 5 KHz on all 3 axes. The accelerometer has optional advanced on-board edge computing FFT capabilities. Customized options include vibration, tilt, and shock events.

Up to 8 vibration modules can be attached to one transceiver node.  The vibration module also includes a temperature sensor.

Wireless Vibration Sensor / Accelerometer – Specifications

A change in vibration is an excellent predictor of impending industrial equipment failures. Rather than doing a vibration analysis every few months, continually monitor equipment vibration with a fast and easy-to-install Leap industrial wireless vibration sensor.

Vibration Sensor Specifications

  • Vibration sensor can mount with the provided magnet or threaded stud.
  • Vibration sensor is connected to the transceiver node with a shielded cable.
    • An industrial communication protocol allows long cables (if needed) between the sensor and wireless transmitter.
  • 3 axis g-force reading taken.
  • G-force readings up to +/- 16 G.
  • Accelerometer operating temperature: -40 to 85C.
  • On-board storage for 174762 sets of 3-axis (x, y, z) g-force samples with 12 bits of resolution.
    • Data is typically processed by a powerful onboard microprocessor using FFT algorithms. Processed vibration analysis is then sent to the radio transmitter.
  • Typical Sampling and Analysis (can be adjusted to each application).
    • Accelerometer is checked every 15 minutes.
    • Each axis is sampled at 1 KHz.  (Up to 5 KHz sampling available, if needed).
    • Samples are taken for 3 seconds.
    • Average and maximum g-force readings are reported for each axis.
  • Advanced Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) edge computing available
    • Sensor has a powerful microprocessor and large memory to take vibration samples and process the data at the sensor.
  • Configurable High G-force Event – Instant Wake-up and Transmit function – optional.

Leap Wireless Sensor Transceiver Node Specifications

  • Transmission Distance to a gateway – typically 1500 feet in open air. Several hundred feet in an industrial environment.
  • Battery Life – 5 to 10 years in typical applications.
    • Different enclosures are available to balance battery size and battery life.
  • Rugged Sensor Enclosure
    • Sealed all-metal enclosure with mounting flanges.  2.44 x 1.33 x 4.73 inches
  • Sensor Mounting Options
    • Screw mount flanges standard.
    • Magnetic mount – optional.
  • High Operating Temperature – Standard sensor -40C to 85C (-40F to 185F).
    • High operating temperature option available: -40C to 125C* (-40F to 260F). Unique to Leap Sensors.
      • *Accelerometer is limited to 85C (185F).
      • *Amp clamp is limited to -20C to 50C (-4F to 120F).
  • 2-way Communication with the sensor through the user interface:
    • Name the sensor, set sensor sampling time interval, set wireless transmit time interval, over-the-air firmware updates.
    • Gateways send an acknowledgement to the sensor that the data was received for high reliability.
  • Data Logger: When sensors do not receive an acknowledgement from the gateway that the radio transmission was received, the sensor will store the time-stamped data on-board (up to 10,000 readings) until the gateway connection is established.
  • Reliable Industrial Over the Air Radio Communication
    • Industry-standard 802.15.4 with Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum (DSSS).
    • Gateway “handshake” acknowledgements of successful transmission and sensor data logging for extra reliability.
  • Over the Air Protocol – Standard and established 6LoPan and Thread.
  • Data Security – AES encryption. Standard and established TLS security.
  • FCC certified.

Leap Wireless Sensors Gateway (Receiver) and User Interface Software

  • See the Leap Sensors gateway page and the Leap Sensors User Interface options page for more detailed information.
  • Leap Sensors wirelessly transmit data to a gateway*.
    • Gateway can support over 250 sensors that are in range. (Additional gateways can extend sensor coverage.)
    • The gateway then passes the data to the Leap user interface software. The user interface software may be hosted on the gateway (and connected to a PC with a USB cable), on the password-protected Leap Sensors Cloud web site, or an on-site server.
  • User interface supports: logging-in, set user rights, view sensor data, set email and text alerts (cloud version), graph sensor data, download data to excel, add or subtract sensors, update firmware, and other functions.

*Custom-ordered leap sensors are available with a direct-to-cellular option where no gateway is needed and the data is sent directly to a cloud server. Contact us for more information.
