Industrial Protocols Modules for Waspmote:
– CAN Bus
Libelium has released new industrial protocol modules and API libraries for Waspmote sensor nodes, that allow sensor information from industrial devices to connect to the Cloud. The new modules support the most widely used industrial communication network protocols such as RS-232, RS-485, CAN Bus, and Modbus, used for process or industrial automation, building automation, military and automobile applications, for sensor network capability in remote or factory floor environments.
In conjunction with the new modules, Libelium has released an special sensor board to connect 4-20 mA sensors (current loop) —the most commonly deployed in industrial environments.
Waspmote – along with the new Industrial Protocols modules – allows you to perform three main applications:
1º – Connect any sensor to an existing industrial bus
2º – Add wireless connectivity to wired buses
3º – Connect to the Cloud industrial devices
