We’ve just released DataWorks 1.4 for iOS and with it comes compatibility with a number of new sensors and a range of usability
Our goal with DataWorks is to make it compatible with as wide a range of Bluetooth Low Energy devices as possible. And with this release we’ve included three new devices
|SensorTag 2.0 – DataWorks has been compatible with the original sensorTag for a while now, and we’ve finally updated it to be compatible with the new version with the CC2650 Bluetooth module from Texas Instruments.
For more information on the Sensor Tag see the Texas Instrument Website
|TDWLB Pressure Transducer – The TDWLB series from Transducers Direct is the first pressure transducer in the world to feature wireless Bluetooth technology and with DataWorks collecting pressure data has never been so easy.
Check out our Transducer page for more information.
DFRobot Bluno – We’ve also added compatibility with the DFRobot’s Bluno family, an Arduino with Bluetooth 4.0 compatibility. We often get asked to provide custom sensors for different projects. Now you can create your own sensors and collect the data with DataWorks.We’ll post more on how integration works with DataWorks and Bluno and post some examples of where we’ve used them over the next couple of weeks. For more information about the Bluno check out DFRobot’s website
New Settings Menu
The new setting menus lets you
- Units – Change the defaults units your data in presented in.
- Feedback & Support – Need help or just want to give some feedback. You can now do this directly in the app, quickly and easily.
- Keep device awake – based on feedback from user – we’ll now let you keep the device awake whilst the app is open. This is particularly useful when you device is plugged in and you areblt able to touch the screen.
- Background Recording – in order to preserve battery life, DataWorks now lets you record in the background. So if you set up interval recording
- Higher Frequency Recording – we’ve also increased the rate at which you can record data during interval recording. Instead of once per second, you can now record up to 10 times per second.
