In this post, I examine in a little more detail how well the Sensor Cube and the Wireless hub's antennas and wireless communication can work. In talking with lui_gough and others, there may be some distance limitations that are not as good as they could be. This is written as a follow up to my recent Road Test of the IDT Wireless evaluation kit as the official evaluation period is closed now.     I came up with a few simple tests which I will show the results of below. For the sign ...
Post #4Part of a series for the Road Test here:   IDT Wireless Flow Rate, Humidity&Temp Sensing Kit   Feature Walk-through This post gives a walk-through of the features and more in-depth look at hardware of the demo kit. As noted in some other posts, the aim of the demo kit is to get some IDT hardware in the hands of engineers to build new products around.   I'll start with current consumption as this was something I was curious about from the beginning. The sensor cube can ...
Post #3 Part of a series for the road test listed here: IDT Wireless Flow Rate, Humidity&Temp Sensing Kit   Kit Initial reactions & power up      Here is an overview video of what comes in the kit and my initial reactions on starting to tear into the kit.     Once I had opened the kit, I went right away and created a file back up of the SD card - "as shipped". So I have a time capsule to roll back if needed. I used the instructions from this page. &# ...
Post #2 Part of a series for the Road Test here:   IDT Wireless Flow Rate, Humidity&Temp Sensing Kit Kit Comparison (for the flow sensor at least)  As I researched this kit, I became curious what else was out on the market. I had wanted to get a flow sensor (or flow switch really) for a while but hadn't spent much time researching what was on the market. Since starting this road test, I have found that there are quite a few options available. I had originally planned on doing a ...
Summary: As part of Road Testing the IDT Wireless flow rate, humidity, temperature sensor, I wanted to review what the kit comes with. This is geared to understand who the kit is geared at based on what it comes with and what options are available. The goal is to try to understand the target market for this evaluation kit, both in terms of engineers and applications. I won't dive too deeply into the guts of the individual components as that will be covered in other posts.   This is the f ...
