(MicroRidge: Sunriver, OR) -- At IMTS 2022, MicroRidge will feature MobileCollect wireless. See this popular measurement collection system in action, learn why customers say, “it just works,” and request that MicroRidge send you a MobileCollect Demo Kit to try at no charge at your location.

Why MobileCollect?

• MobileCollect transmits measurements wirelessly from any gage into any software program in real time, with 100 percent accuracy, at the press of a button. It is compatible with any data collection software, from Excel spreadsheets to cloud-based solutions.
• MobileCollect wireless is used in aerospace, automotive, energy, food and beverage, general manufacturing, and more. More than 100 gage brands and 3,500 gage devices are supported. You can select the best gage device and software solution for your needs without compatibility concerns.
• A MobileCollect wireless system consists of mobile modules, remotes (transmitters), and bases (receivers). With MobileCollect, you can choose several mobile module, remote, and base options to fit your gaging and measurement collection requirements. In situations with heavy RF, significant machinery, robots, or electrical noise, MobileCollect is often the only one that works unaffected all the time.

Additional features include:
• One base (receiver) can connect hundreds of gages, and you can select the RF channel for communications (15 channels available)
• 32-bit data encryption for secure transmissions
• RF Sniffer is built into the RS-232 & USB Bases (receivers) to determine available RF channels
• Setup program is not required for most configurations but features easy-to-use Windows setup software when needed
• Associate mobile module (transmitter) with base (receiver) in seconds using buttons on mobile modules. No operating software is needed
• Includes WedgeLink Xpress keyboard wedge software to bring your data into Excel and other Windows-based applications

Founded in 1983, MicroRidge Systems is a leader in measurement collection solutions for manufacturing companies taking measurements to track quality. MicroRidge offers a wide range of products designed for compatibility, with more gage brands and models than any other measurement collection provider.
