WIRELESS INTERFACE MODULE FROM SOLARTRON METROLOGY PROVIDES
BLUETOOTH™ CONNECTION BETWEEN ORBIT® 3 DIGITAL SENSOR
NETWORK AND PERSONAL COMPUTERS

Wireless Interface Module Wirelessly Connects up to 150 Sensors on a single network

Bognor Regis, West Sussex, UK-- AMETEK Solartron Metrology, a recognised leader in linear measurement and
dimensional gauging, has introduced a Bluetooth™ enabled interface controller for wireless communication with
the Orbit® 3 Network

The Wireless Interface Module (WIM) allows communication between any PC with a Bluetooth™
connection and the Orbit® sensor network. It is possible to connect up to 150 sensors to the
WIM. It can take up to 25 static readings per second for up to 8 modules and is the best way
to optimise readings using the read burst command.

The communication range is a minimum of 10 meters with a Class 1 Bluetooth™ device.
A Power Supply Input Module (PSIM) is needed to ensure that the WIM receives 5Vdc for
operation, with one PSIM powering 1 WIM and up to 31 Orbit® Modules.

The module has application in a variety of industries, including electronics, aerospace and
automotive. Manufacturers now can get readings from their Orbit® sensor networks without
needing to physically connect their PC, providing more versatile and user-friendly solutions.

Solartron Metrology is a world leader in design and manufacture of precision digital and
analogue dimensional LVDT gauging probes, displacement sensors, optical linear encoders and
associated instrumentation. It is a unit of AMETEK, Inc., a leading global manufacturer of
electronic instruments and electromechanical devices with annualised sales of US$4.2 billion.
