Melbourne, Australia – July 3, 2014: M2M Connectivity introduces the new industrial protocol modules and API libraries for Libelium 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. These protocols are 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 a special sensor board to connect 4-20 mA sensors (current loop) which is the most commonly deployed in industrial environments.
“We recognize that successful industrial IoT solutions need the right tools to address the special considerations of the industrial world such as interoperability, reliability and scalability,” said David Gascón, CTO at Libelium.“Designed for the IoT, Waspmote is a multi-protocol networking platform capable of covering any aspect of an industrial environment using IP all the way to the end device.”
Waspmote along with the new Industrial Protocols modules enables:
- · connection of any of the 70 sensors available to an existing industrial bus, to obtain sensor
information that can be read from any industrial device connected to the bus
· addition of wireless connectivity to wired bus or to connect to the Cloud via WiFi, 3G, GPRS,
802.15.4, ZigBee, Bluetooth, Bluetooth Low Energy, RF-868MHz, RF-900MHz,
· connection to the Cloud industrial devices using WiFi, 3G and GPRS radio interfaces.
