#1027: Wildlife Tracking. Weighing penguins using RS-232 and RFID.
When Daedalus Technology Group needed to design a penguin weigh station to deploy to Antarctica, they came to embeddedTS. Everything going to Cape Crozier has to be lightweight, rugged, and reliable and the TS-7250-V2 met all of those demands. Using RS-232 to communicate to the RFID reader and scale controller, the scientists gathered the data and stored it to the microSD card.
The TS-7250-V2 Single Board Computer. Capable and ready for harsh environments.
The TS-7250-V2 is a feature-rich single board computer capable of running fanless from -40 °C to 85 °C. There's an interface for just about any project, including RS-232, RS-485, CAN, DIO, ADC, DAC, I2C, and more, all packaged in a small, low powered footprint.Find out more about the TS-7250-V2
Built for Extremes. Passed a ruthless HALT test with flying colors.
While the penguin weigh station represents a real world application, we were confident the TS-7250-V2 would excel in this environment based on previous HALT results. Highly Accelerated Life Test (HALT) is a stress testing methodology used to determine product reliability and the operational parameters for a device or component.Read the TS-7250-V2 HALT report
