In this paper, the errors in measurement of mechanical quantities in wireless sensor networks and microprocessor frequency meters connected to nodes of sensor networks, which together constitute an information measuring system, are investigated. The problem of determining the error in measuring the distance and time of the signal transmission between transceivers is investigated. The distance is calculated using the propagation time of the signal. The error of the microprocessor frequency meter, measuring the frequency of chaotic radio pulses in sensory measuring networks, as a magnitude of the inverse time of the signal transmission, is estimated
