Users can connect up to 150 sensors to the module, and it can take up to 25 static readings per second for up to 8 modules and is the best way to optimize readings using the read burst command.

The communication range is a minimum of 10 meters with a Class 1 Bluetooth device. A power supply input module (PSIM) is needed to ensure that the WIM receives 5Vdc for operation, with one PSIM powering one WIM and up to 31 orbit modules. The module can be used in a number of industries including electronics, aerospace, and automotive. Manufacturers now can get readings from their Orbit sensor networks without needing to physically connect their PC, providing more versatile and user-friendly solutions.
