The powerful ESP32 chip is the core of our IoT board. It offers on chip WiFi (Station & Access Point), Bluetooth and encryption. We added extra communication possibilities via Mobile Chip (GSM & NBIoT), LoRa and ModBus RS485. Configuration is stored in memory based files and data can be kept on an SD card if necessary. The time is accurate, TimeZone & DST aware, and foreseen via an RTC chip. It has an OLED screen and optionally a larger LED matrix or e-Paper for communication with the outside world.
Several ADC & GPIO ports are available in order to connect our different probes and via relays we have the possibility to activate devices like water pumps, valves, motors and more. There is a command language for executing local & remote commands, the ability to trace board activity and to interact via local web pages. Data communication between our cloud application server and the IoT boards is encrypted and as such secure.
Based on the ESP8266 chip but stripped to the bare bone so that only measurements are passed to the cloud application server or another central IoT node at specific intervals when woken up. It sleeps in between the measurements in order to save power.
A solar panel and battery is used in order to keep running for a long period. Typically deployed in environments where no electricity is available like farmer fields, vineyards....
Here you see an example set-up of our Solar powered module used for a Greenhouse project. Communication is done via LoRa in this case due to the absence of WiFi. We use a solar panel and battery to keep running autonomously for years.
The moister and temperature measurements can steer the sprinkler and aeration systems.
A popular solution is the measurement of air quality "Particals" (pm10, pm25), here based on the NOVA SDS011 sensor.
Typically used in school environments, factories and towns/cities where we can indicate the level of pollution, steer road indicators and(or) warn people.
We offer RFID technology supporting different distances depending on the project requirements.
We have for example a solution that calculates statistics on students interest in a specific craftsmanship based on RFID activity measured in the different technical classrooms like metalworking, bricklaying, construction, electricity, plumbing etc...
Several output device types are provided in order to communicate with the outside world. Currently there are Organic LED, LED Matrix, LED Strips, TFT and E-Paper possibilities. Can be easily extended on demand.
In case of the need for analogue data display we can propose for example Gauge types.
For industrial solutions the boards are placed in DIN rail rack mountable PLC cases.
This allows us to assemble a set of devices into racks which are easily to access and maintain.
For bad environmentally protected or outdoor places we can foresee weatherproof DIN rail enclosures.
The central application server offers the possibility to visualize your sensors in Google Maps.
You can consult the last measurement values, state of the relays and select charts, command scheduler or configuration screen from the "Info Window".
The central application server allows you to configure your IoT boards, items like measurement intervals, GPS coordinates, provide context to sensors and much more.
Several charting types are available for different time periods.
Possibility of launching commands/tasks to be executed by boards located anywhere in the world.
Even in case of WiFi communication the customer does not need to change his network configuration due to our unique technology.
State changes overview of the, by the board controlled realys, connected to valves, pumps, sprinkler systems, canal locks, airconditioner...
There is a color indication green/red, sort of traffic light, for the current state and a list of all changes correctly dated
Based on custom measurement thresholds you can initiate automated commands via a rules subsystem.
The rule engine allows you to easily configure actions as a respond to a measurement, these actions trigger the devices connected on the IoT board.
As the action is a response to a measurement the latency is very small (Some Msec).
