There is no one-size-fits-all solution in IoT, so our systems are designed to adapt to the needs of our customers. Our industrial cellular gateways and sensor hubs connect to external sensors through standard ports, such as 4-20mA, 0-10V and Dallas 1-Wire. They connect to digital devices with RS-485 Modbus, RS-232, Ethernet, USB and I2C. A variety of wireless options are available, such as Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi HaLow, Bluetooth, and Thread.
All of our gateways connect to the Cloud with CAT-1 or CAT-M1 cellular modems. These are designed for lower power IoT applications while still supporting data rates that are high enough to meet the needs of real-time monitoring.
We offer three types of systems. EdgePoint products connect directly to sensors and are designed for stand-alone operation in specific types of applications. They are a combination of cellular gateway and sensor hub. They connect directly to a variety of sensors and report their values to the cloud. The types and number of inputs varies with product. They are all designed for outdoor and industrial environments.
The Nexus System is an integrated system of a central industrial cellular gateway and a variety of SensePoint wireless sensor hubs and nodes that are added. The nodes are chosen to add whatever functionality is required by the application without adding a lot of cost in features that are not needed. This a-la-carte approach tailors the system to a specific application without requiring a fully custom design.
The ConnectPoint products are stand-alone Wi-Fi HaLow range extenders. They do not have cellular connectivity, so are for local communications. They bridge RS-485 and Ethernet networks to a Wi-Fi HaLow link, connecting devices over distances of up to 1 mile. This eliminates long cable runs between the devices and connects hard to reach locations. The ConnectPoint products act as pass-through devices, sending along whatever data is presented to them. This lets them work with any protocol that uses RS-485 or Ethernet without any coding or programming.
All of our cellular gateways and sensor hubs are ruggedized for harsh industrial and outdoor environments. Also, they are designed with ease of installation and use in mind. Combined with our air time and optional website hosting packages, these systems are a one stop shop for industrial IoT systems.
