New development for the Internet of Things
The short rang radio node is a durable industrial radio interface for sensors and actuators with mesh network functionality. This completes the IoT ecosystem and allows a multitude of solutions to be implemented in a networked industrial environment.
With the development of the sysWORXX SRN-300, the SYS TEC electronic closes the gap of the in-house IoT ecosystem. The Short Range Radio Node (SRN) is a consistent further development of Meshnet technologies towards industrial applications. The functionality includes both sensors and actuators. In addition to sending and receiving data, control tasks can also be implemented with the node. Digital outputs with bistable relays are available for this purpose.
Any physical quantities of a machine can thus be connected directly to the node. There is no dependency on exclusively individual physical variables of a machine.
On the software side, a software stack from Wirepas in Finland is used. This makes it possible to activate the node only when necessary. The result is an enormously low energy consumption and thus a long battery life of up to three years. At the same time, the node can also be operated via a 24V connection.
The node transmits on a 2.4 GHz transmission frequency and contains an NFC antenna for provisioning.
Together with the two other sysWORXX products from the IoT ecosystem, the small sysWORXX CTR-100 controller and the versatile sysWORXX CTR-700 edge controller, numerous IoT projects can be implemented. Particularly in the areas of asset tracking, condition monitoring, predictive maintenance and energy management, concrete applications are being planned.
