Replacing obsolete sensors is not as easy as purchasing a new sensor and plugging it into the existing hardware, and companies seeking replacement solutions must consider various costly and time consuming factors, such as:

  • Making custom modifications to hardware interfaces
  • Rewriting software and firmware to work with older data protocols
  • Developing new mounting brackets to house new components
  • Accounting for the effects of different data and communications rates on system performance

Seeking to reduce R&D and programming times for customers using their products as replacement solutions for discontinued sensors, Inertial Labs can help solve these problems in several ways, including:

  • Creating fully customized housings for end-users
  • Modifying firmware to communicate with existing systems
  • Configuring units to output custom data packets
  • Configuring units to work with customer interfaces
