STS4-16 Node

Overview

The STS4-16 nodes are 16-Channel data acquisition devices with 16 analog and 16 temperature inputs per node. They are the newest addition to the successful STS line of products and combines the simplicity of our STS live-load testing systems with our long-term structural monitoring system capabilities. This very economical and flexible system can be deployed for a quick one-day field test or for a weeks or months to capture all types of structural load responses. Once you’ve attached your sensors to the quick-connect terminal blocks, use the STS-LIVE software to configure the system in minutes.

There are four models to choose from depending on the application. A fully rugged outdoor version with intelligent sensor support (Intelliducer), and wireless or wired Ethernet communication options. A more economical version intended for monitoring applications where the nodes will be housed in outdoor enclosures or simply used in a laboratory application.
