ZigBee is a wireless communication technology which based on IEEE 802.15.4 protocol, communicating within short distance and with low power. ZigBee is applied in cantilever beam vibration measurement system in this paper, and the old wired transmission system are substituted by IEEE 802.15.4, software and sensor circuit are designed, reliable data transmission method and half byte compression algorithm are analyzed, and also provide basis and data analyzing solution for dynamics model of cantilever beam which using piezoelectric transducer. Experimental results show that with wireless ZigBee transmission solution and compression algorithm, the acquisition data of 150 bytes per second can be achieved, which will improve the quality of vibration analysis.
