The OMWT-VIB Wireless Vibration Transmitter is a battery operated digital vibration sensor with a microprocessor controlled 418 MHz FCC certified radio transmitter. This transmitter is useful in applications that need to sense when vibration is present or not or exceeds a threshold, e.g., to determine whether or not an engine is running. The OMWT-VIB has an on board time of day clock that allows it to spend most of the time in a low power quiescent state. At pre-determined time intervals the clock will wake up the onboard micro-processor. Unique serial number information and digital vibration data is combined with a CRC-16 error check and transmitted in a very short data packet that results in a transmitter on time of only 15 milliseconds. This architecture allows the OMWT-VIB to consume very low energy resulting in a battery life of up to 2 years.

The electronics are coated with a conformal rubber material that provides a moisture barrier against condensation. Submersion in water is not recommended. An integral pushbutton is used to activate the service switch. The OMWT-VIB is shipped with the transmitter turned off (anytime the device is to be shipped the transmitter should be turned off or must be placed in a shielded container to prevent interference that might cause shipping problems).

Start the device by momentarily pushing the service switch (you will feel the button click). When the service switch is pushed, a data transmission occurs immediately and a special mark is introduced in the ID field of the transmitted data packet to indicate which device is in service or installation. The service switch is also used to put the device in a quiescent mode (no trans-missions and very low power consumption). This is the state the device is in when you receive it. Push and hold the service switch for 10 seconds or more to enter this powered down state.

Using the OMWT Series Windows software incoming data being received from OMWT Series Wireless Transmitters can be viewed in a real-time or historical time-base chart or numerical view. High/low alarms can also be set for each transmitter signal with either a visual or audible alarm indication on the PC. Data can also be logged to disk at a user-specified rate in a text file format that can be opened up into Microsoft Excel. The OMWT Series Windows software also includes a DDE Server that can interface the data being received from OMWT Series Wireless Transmitters to other Windows software packages.
