The Nexus System consists of a central industrial cellular gateway and a variety of nodes connected over a customized wireless network. The number and variety of nodes can be selected to suit the application, making the system highly flexible. The wireless link is either a customized Thread network or long-range Wi-Fi HaLow. The gateway communicates with cloud servers over a CAT-1 cellular modem with plenty of bandwidth for live monitoring.
Standard nodes include an RS-485 / RS-232 serial node, an accelerometer node, a CAN communications node, a sensor hub, and a current and temperature monitoring node. Custom nodes can be developed for specific applications.
Standard nodes include an RS-485 / RS-232 serial node, an accelerometer node, a current and temperature monitoring node, and a sensor hub node supporting multiple analog and digital inputs. Custom nodes can be developed for specific applications.
This plug-and-play approach allows the system to be tailored to specific applications using standard, off-the-shelf components. This means faster time to market and lower cost with little to no custom hardware or embedded software development.
Housed in rugged aluminum enclosures, the industrial cellular gateways and sensor hubs are designed for harsh outdoor and industrial environments.
