T24 telemetry modules

The T24 telemetry range is a flexible radio telemetry system designed to provide high accuracy measurement data from strain gauge loadcells. The basic system displays the data on a computer via an interface unit that is powered from a USB port. Other systems are available that allow the data to be read on a compact handheld display unit.

T24 toolkit software is available for set-up and data access using a computer with a Windows operating system, Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8 or 10 is required. The software can output data as a standard csv file for use with a spreadsheet or other data processing software.

The licence free 2.4GHz direct sequence spread spectrum (DSSS) radio technology offers high integrity, error free communications which can co-exist with other wireless technologies such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth® and Zigbee®. If you have concerns about a wireless system functioning reliably at your location we have a set of evaluation modules available for test purposes.

If the system is supplied with a loadcell it will normally be calibrated to read the loadcell output in the same force units as the loadcell calibration. A traceable system certificate will be supplied for this calibration.

Alternative calibrations are possible; please consult our engineering department to discuss your requirements.

This telemetry system can be used with any of our loadcells. Details of our loadcell families can be found in the Product Guide.
