IoT gateway to over 200 edge devices

Advantech has introduced two LoRaWAN industrial sensing and I/O solutions.

The WISE-2200-M is a Modbus read/write communication device. It supports maximum 128 address and 30 rule settings and can connect to Modbus sensors and meters for different applications. The company states it provides a better connection compared with traditional wireless technology.

The WISE-4610 advanced industrial wireless I/O module features selectable private LoRa and LoRaWAN options. It provides a longer communication range and better penetration through concrete and steel and creates less interference than 2.4GHz spectrum. The application ready I/O module can be fitted with an IP65 enclosure and powered by solar rechargeable battery or 10 to 50VDC input. It also supports GPS, Galileo, BeiDou and GLONASS systems.

With Advantech Edgelink IoT gateway software 200-plus edge devices may be connected via the southbound interface to different platforms via the northbound interface inside the gateway. This allows users to plug-and-play without worrying about data parsing processes.
