MobileCollect Wireless Supports U-Wave

U-Wave Compatibility At a Glance
MobileCollect wireless now offers compatibility with U-Wave wireless transmitters.Why did we do this?  While U-Wave is an excellent wireless product, it is not compatible with non-Mitutoyo devices.  Companies that were “Mitutoyo only” when U-Wave was installed, can unexpectedly develop a need to collect data wirelessly from non-Mitutoyo gages.Previously, the only solution was to replace the entire U-Wave system (receivers and transmitters) with a MobileCollect wireless system. 

This financially penalized the end user because even though they would continue using the same Mitutoyo gages, they had to replace all the U-Wave transmitters to be able to add the non-Mitutoyo gages.But now, MobileCollect and U-Wave transmitters can be installed on the same wireless system.  This solution protects a significant portion of a company’s wireless investment because the U-Wave transmitters are still used with the Mitutoyo gages.Here’s how it works.  Simply replace the U-Wave receiver with any MobileCollect Base receiver.  Connect a MobileCollect transmitter to each non-Mitutoyo gage device and pair the U-Wave and MobileCollect transmitters to the new MobileCollect Base receiver.The process to send measurements from U-Wave and MobileCollect transmitters is the same, just press the READ button.  Both transmitters types have LEDs that indicate a successful measurement transfer.Additional information on this new MobileCollect wireless feature is provided below and in the PDF flyer link.  Contact MicroRidge if you have more questions on our U-Wave compatibility feature.
