Introducing the WiMER 4A!

Introducing the newest product in our WiMER product line: the WiMER 4A!

WiMER4A is the wireless transmitter for Mitutoyo digital protractor 950-318.
Mitutoyo 950-318 is a gravity electronic sensor based digital protractor. It covers measurement range of 360° (90°x4) with high resolution (0.01° for 0° to 9.99°, 0.1° for 10° to 90°) and high accuracy (0.05° for 0° to 10°, 0.2° for 10° to 80°, 0.1° for 80° to 90°). It features a machined aluminum frame with an easy-to-read liquid crystal display.
Working together with WiMER4A, 950-318 readings can be wirelessly viewed and collected on iPhone/iPad/Windows PC.

Wireless Measurement Read (WiMER3) – Safety Improvement Case Study

Motionics products can be utilized in a large variety of industries, as seen in the chart below. Many of the industries we serve, such as manufacturing, mining, and construction, have serious safety concerns. Our wireless measurement solutions can increase work safety and decrease the risk of injury by eliminating the need of having an operator close to machinery during a measurement. Below is a case study of a mining company that implemented the WiMER3 for on site measurements to decrease risk of injury for workers.

Motionics MultiGage measurement solutions allows measurement and simultaneous data collection from several gages using smart devices or any computer. WiMER3, one of the Motionics products, is a data collector and wireless transmitter developed for the Mitutoyo Linear Gage and LVDTs. WiMER3 sends readings to iPhone, iPad, and PC for convenient and accurate measurement.

Case Study

What is happening?

An Australian mining company needs to measure slew bearing deflection on their heavy equipment every 100 hours to trend the rate of flew bearing wear and assist in the forecasting for component life. The task is generally completed using a dial indicator and a magnetic base. There is generally a spotter on the ground, an operator in the cab, and someone near the machine reading the dial indicator while movements are conducted. This is hazardous because a worker is close to swing bearing while the machine is being operated. There is potential for major crushing injuries to occur.

How was it improved?

Motionics WiMER3 wireless gage removes the requirement for personnel to be near the machine. A person in the cab operates the machine, and the measurements are sent wirelessly via the transponder to either a recorder on the ground or in the cab.   The measurements are either recorded in an app on a phone, a tablet or a computer.

What impact did we see from this technology?

The Risk Score is reduced from major injury likely (ten times per year) to minor injury unlikely (one every ten years). Furthermore, the device helps to reduce the amount of exposure to risk by getting the job completed quicker. It also provides more accurate and reliable measurements and eliminates the human reading error.

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
