The Internet of Things (IoT) connector is developed to make data available from sensors in the network. The problem with “making data available” is that data “has to go somewhere”. Therefore we have developed the IoT-connector.
This solution ensures that all data from sensors are integrated in one telemetry system. The IoT-connector is the interface between the sensors and the central software of your organization.
Easy integration of data
The design from the IoT-connector is modular and open, from the first signal on location up to the host software. With our forty years of experience in M2M communication and data acquisition, we have a lot of experience in “making data available”.
The implementation of IoT-applications requires knowledge of technology and data. The use of innovative technologies ensures smart and sustainable solutions in the process. Datawatt is able to develop these sort of sustainable solutions.
Our IoT connector is different from other interfaces in the field of modularity, openness and plug-in use. In addition, we offer with the IoT- connector a number of extra services with regard to communication. For example the reliability of the solution, the customer’s specific processing of data and features such as time synchronization, logging of errors and debugs and the collection of different types of process data.
Different sensors, one interface
The IoT connector receives measurements and data from different types of sensors or equipment. Various communication networks from different providers can be used for transporting the data. All data is accessed through a plug-in system and sent to the central system. All data is sent by one interface, for example via IEC104, SQL, CSV, Osisoft PI or any other interface.
The IoT connector is a innovative, flexible and reliable solution.
The open approach of this solution fits to our company philosophy and suits the independent course that the government is putting on the agenda nowadays. In the past we used as one of the first companies open protocols, and now we are opening our software. Vendor lock-ins are common in our field. This phenomenon occurs both in hardware and in software. Datawatt stands for open, transparent, reliable and flexible solutions.
Datawatt total solutions
The IoT connector is part of our IoT total solutions policy. Our total solution with IoT consists of IoT hardware or so-called sensors. We are able to handle all types of sensors and hardware that are present in the network.
Our IoT connector takes care of the data acquisition from the location and transfers is to the central system. Through a simple plug-in and open solution, all measurement data is sent from the locations to your own scada and / or data collection system.
Different communication networks
Our IoT solution is network independent. Either Sigfox and NB-IoT or LTE-M networks from various providers can be used to send the data (messages). We are able to help you choose the best provider and network for your application. We work closely with all IoT providers as KPN-LoRA, Aerea or Vodafone.
Reliable and flexible
The Datawatt IoT solution is developed based on our experience with telemetry and data acquisition systems. The open approach, the modular design and the plug-in application are fully in line with our vision of technology. This has resulted in a particularly open, reliable, flexible and professional IoT solution.
