Mitutoyo U-WAVE Capabilities Compared to Motionics WiMER Uno

A common question we receive is, “How is Mitutoyo’s U-WAVE different than Motionics WiMER Uno?” So today, we are going to go through both U-WAVE capabilities and WiMER Uno’s capabilities to properly answer this question.

Mitutoyo’s U-WAVE system enables easy wireless data communication from a measuring tool to a PC using the Digimatic protocol. This allows for improvement in measurement efficiency by eliminating the long and cumbersome data cables. This interface allows data to be loaded into any software product that accepts keyboard input, such as Excel or Notepad. There are two different components of Mitutoyo U-WAVE. The first is U-WAVE-T which units transmit data from measuring tools to U-WAVE-R. Then U-WAVE-R loads data received from U-WAVE-T into a PC software package via a USB port.

U-WAVE product benefits include:

1. Up to 100 measuring tools can be connected to one U-Wave-R unit

2. Wireless operation improves efficiency in measurement data recording

3. Data communication range up to 60ft is possible

4. One U-WAVE battery will last for about 10 months.

Now, Motionics WiMER Uno has made sure to preserve the same great benefits as Mitutoyo U-Wave. These include the standard 10 pin connector for Mitutoyo digimatic SPC data cables, data capturing that can be triggered by a foot switch, hand switch or the data button, and allowing measurement data to be easily entered into in Excel/Notepad. What WiMER Uno does offer that is different from U-Wave is the capability to wirelessly send measurement readings to iOS/Android/Windows devices via Bluetooth Low Energy. Motionics provides free apps for each product. The apps that would connect to WiMER Uno include MultiGage Reader for iOS and DialReading for Android. For Windows, free software is provided upon purchase of the product. The big perk to this is that there is no receiver needed for iOS/Android mobile devices. The only extra device required is a miniature USB dongle but this is only used for PC communication and comes at a very affordable price of $25.00.

Key Features and benefits include

1. No receiver needed for iOS/Android devices

2. Free engineering Apps/Software iOS/Android/Windows

3. Multiple device simultaneous reading

4. Customizable reading decimal accuracy

5. Data voice read with 10+ languages

6. Data record and CSV export

7. Quick custom PDF report with results, graphs, image, logo, signature, map and GPS location

8. Keyboard input for Excel/Notepad on PC.

9. Rechargeable LiPo battery

WiMER Uno Wireless Transmitter for Data Collection: The Gage That Speaks To You

WiMER Uno the wireless transmitter for data collection, is one of a kind and just gained a new product feature. If you haven’t heard of Motionics WiMER Uno product it is a data collector and wireless transmitter for Mitutoyo digital instruments that don’t usually require continuous data streaming, for example calipers and micrometers. If you are interested in continuous data streaming, go and check out WiMER1.

Within the WiMER Uno free app provided by Motionics, you can now have it read out each measurement as it is being recorded in real-time. This voice feature allows you to speed up or slow down the rate in which the measurements are read and it also has 10 different language options.

This video shows the voice application in use.

 

This feature was developed based on a request received from one of Motionics customers who’s workers were visually impaired. Now as they are working they can hear the measurement and place statistically significant parts to the side creating a more streamline process.

Motionics is willing and able to modify their products to fit your companies needs, all you need to do is reach out.

 

 

MultiGage Reader for WiMER and BlueDial to Wirelessly Collect Readings

By using Motionics WiMER and BlueDial hardware products that wirelessly collect readings, you will be making displacement measurements simple and more efficient.

screen-shot-2016-11-01-at-3-24-36-pmThe MultiGage Reader app contains the same functions as the DialRead app but now allows users to be able to connect up to 15 WiMER or BlueDial hardware and receive reading from all of them at the same time.

 

Each device will be assigned with an individual panel to display measurement reading, device rotating angle, max, min TIR and average value. The image below provides an exact model.

Users are able to disconnect/add more devices without interfering with the other device measurements that are taking place. MultiGage Reader is an ideal tool for simultaneously measuring different locations along a long pipe or shaft.

For data recording, MultiGage Reader provides two options: continuous recording or single recording. Continuous recording is capable of up to 10 samples/sec while the single recording takes place by tapping a button. This data can then be plotted in a user interaction enabled graphs or exported in a CSV file via email for further assessment.

 

 

 

The new update for MultiGage Reader iPad version provides analog dial view. This means users can see not only the digital reading values, but also analog dial faces with needle spinning, just like the traditional dial indicator. A TIR indicator bar next to the dial face offers a quick glance at the current TIR value compared to preset threshold with changing length and color. This tool is very convenient for GO/NG judgement.
