Libelium Adds Industrial Protocols to Sensors for the Internet of Things

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 (RS232, RS485, CAN Bus, Modbus) for process or industrial automation, building automation, military and automobile applications, for sensor network capability in remote or factory floor environments.

In addition to Waspmote, Libelium’s industrial protocol modules connect with general development platforms such as Arduino, Intel Galileo, and Raspberry Pi, to help developers design industrial Internet of Things (IoT) solutions with quick prototyping of in-the-field projects. In conjunction with the new modules, Libelium has released a special sensor board to connect 4-20mA sensors (current loop)—the most commonly deployed in industrial environments.

Libelium’s products and IoT sensor solutions will be demonstrated at Sensors Expo & Conference, booth #814, June 24-26, 2014 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois.

“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.”

Technical Characteristics – Industrial Protocols for Waspmote

Key Features     Why it Matters
Waspmote sensor nodes connect any sensor to an existing industrial bus or industrial electronic device, to simplify connectivity.     Waspmote nodes work in the network to insert sensor data into the industrial bus already present, thanks to integration with over 70 different sensors (e.g. acceleration, CO, CO2, humidity, IR, luminosity, pH, temperature, vibration, etc.).
Industrial protocols supported include CAN Bus, Modbus, RS-232, RS-485. Available wireless technologies include 802.15.4, 3G, Bluetooth, Bluetooth Smart Low Energy (BLE), GPRS, RF-868MHz, RF-900MHz, Wi-Fi, ZigBee.     The modules add wireless connectivity to wired buses, with Waspmote configured to read information and send it wirelessly to a base station or any other node in the network. Wired links can co-exist with wireless links.
Waspmote can be configured to read information directly from the bus and send it directly to the Cloud using Wi-Fi, 3G and GPRS radio interfaces.     Waspmote connects industrial devices to the Cloud wirelessly, creating industrial-device networks that intercommunicate.
