The NI Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) Starter Kit includes the hardware and software you need to evaluate NI WSNs and LabVIEW software. The kit contains an NI WSN-9791 Ethernet gateway, a programmable NI WSN-3202 ±10 V analog input node, and a programmable NI WSN-3212 thermocouple input node. In addition, NI ships the kit with batteries for the measurement nodes, a power supply and Ethernet cable for the gateway, thermocouples, a potentiometer, NI-WSN software, LabVIEW WSN Module Pioneer evaluation software, and LabVIEW 2009 evaluation software.
The WSN Starter Kit is available in two versions, the Americas version and the Europe/Asia version. Refer to the Wireless Certification Document linked from the Resources tab to determine which WSN Starter Kit is certified for your geographical region. The Americas version of the starter kit also contains a U.S. power cord for the included desktop power supply, while the Europe/Asia version of the kit does not contain a power cord for the desktop power supply. If you are purchasing the Europe/Asia version of the WSN Starter Kit, see the accessories section for available power cord options.
The programmable NI WSN measurement nodes that are included with the WSN Starter Kit can be targeted and programmed with the LabVIEW WSN Module Pioneer (evaluation version included). With this capability, you can customize the node’s behavior, adding intelligence to extend battery life, increase analog and digital input performance, perform local control and analysis, and interface with custom sensors.
