Atlantik Elektronik present the new battery powered Cellular Gateway with I/O

Digi Connect Sensor – sensor based Remote Monitoring


Planegg, June 30th, 2016
Atlantik Elektronik, electronics distributor and provider of trend-setting    complete solutions, is presenting Digi's new Connect Sensor.  Digi Connect Sensor is a fully integrated, battery powered cellular gateway with I/O for connecting to a wide range of external sensors. The Connect Sensor is designed to work in rugged industrial environments, such as industrial control systems, smart cities, oil and gas as well as agriculture.
 
The Digi Connect Sensor is the ideal solution for companies looking to add remote monitoring in places where power is not easily available. Its easy installation, reliability and low data usage make remote monitoring possible in areas where it was previously cost prohibitive. Digi Connect Sensor leverages Digi Device CloudSM and integration services, enabling customers who need to monitor large numbers of sensors to easily integrate that data into existing applications or work with third‐party applications.

Digi is also announcing limited release of Digi Connect Wizard mobile application for Android. This smartphone application is the first of its kind for this type of battery powered gateway. It gives local installers, technicians or drivers instant feedback of sensor values over Bluetooth. With this, local personnel get immediate status on an action, like filling a tank. This technology replaces the need for outdated LCD displays.

Providing an optimal combination of incorporating low-cost sensors capable of multiple uses, data transport via global cellular networks and power available wherever it is needed, Digi Connect Sensor key features include:

  • Flexible power source options: Features a long-lasting, non-rechargeable battery with two to three-year average life, sleep mode to conserve power between sensor readings and the option to power from an external source using the internal battery as backup power. As a result, users have the flexibility to make the device self-powered, or take advantage of existing power supplies, including solar.
  • Cellular choice: For global connectivity, Connect Sensor is available in 3G HSPA+ with 2G fallback. North American users can also choose an LTE CAT 1 version.
  • Supports LTE CAT 1: With support for LTE CAT 1, the band specifically created for IoT and M2M communications, Connect Sensor devices are highly efficient, require less power and are optimized for data transfer.
  • Appropriate for harsh environments: Features weather-proof NEMA 4 enclosure to protect sensors from the elements, as well as ATEX Group 2 and UL Class 1 Division 2 ratings.
