Looking for a wireless system for collecting 12+ temp. measurements

  1. Dec 15, 2008 #1
    I was wondering if anyone has suggestions in terms of wireless transmitters/receivers for a system that will have over a dozen temperature measurements (either thermocouples or RTD's). I have no idea where to even begin looking. Thanks,

    hmm im actually looking for something.. maybe smaller scale? Its for measuring thermoelectrics, i.e. a lot smaller than weather type temperatures.

    Can't vouch for their systems, having mainly worked with National Instruments (who only offer 4ch wireless), but you could try Omega.

    Well, you haven't really given us much information but I would suggest bluetooth. Its relatively cheap and easier to work with than wifi. Although some of it requires ATA commands if IIRC. Its been a while since I've done any wireless stuff.


    BTW, NL's LabView blows!

    Not really, it's pretty powerful if you persevere with it. If you have the time to learn how to program everything in a non graphical manner it's probably less useful, but as a quick and easy means of acquiring, analysing and displaying data it's pretty good.
