Spinwave Systems Inc. is proud to announce its new line of embedded mesh gateways. This powerful platform offers a completely self contained wireless mesh solution with built-in configuration tools, extended device support, on-board and cloud-based data logging and Modbus TCP support for stand-alone and integrated monitoring solutions.
Powerful open platform
The new gateway is an extremely energy-efficient powerful embedded Linux device with Apache web server, PHP and SQLite.
The device boots from a Micro SD card. The SD card is also used for long-term data logging. Dynamic and static IP addressing is supported. The battery-backed real-time clock can be internet synchronized. Up to two (2) wireless mesh radios are connected (and powered) via USB.
SWRF-CLOUD-1: Supports up to 75 wireless devices, included one mesh radio
SWRF-CLOUD-2: Supports up to 140 wireless devices, includes two mesh radios
Extended device support
The SWRF-CLOUD gateways now support all A3 sensors and transceivers, in addition to Spinwave’s repeaters, thermostats (SWC-TSTAT-3), and select Modbus RTU devices. The number of devices per mesh gateway has been increased to 140 (from previously 50).
Maintain remote sites with ease
All tools to configure and maintain your wireless mesh networks are now built into the gateway. Wireless devices can be discovered and configured using a standard web browser.
Device-specific data can be monitored and adjusted easily. Just select a device in the project tree and the associated information is displayed in your browser. The gateway even accumulates and logs HVAC equipment runtimes.
Plug and Log
Do you need to conduct a site survey in preparation of an energy efficiency project? Do you need to map server inlet temperatures in a data center? The new gateway, in combination with easy-to-install wireless sensors, is ideal for standalone monitoring solutions. Wireless device data can be logged for months on the gateway’s on-board Micro SDcard. Powerful embedded tools make it easy to select and analyze environmental variables and energy consumption. Data base maintenance is performed automatically; old records are periodically purged.
A simple click on a button exports and downloads device data to an EXCEL compatible CSV file for further analysis.
The embedded web client can push data to cloud-based data storage and analysis services. All you need is internet access at your remote site. The gateway supports dynamic IP addressing and uses HTTP to push data to the cloud. No public IP address or firewall acrobatic is required.
At launch, the gateway supports KGS Buildings’ Clockworks cloud service. Please contact us if you would like to connect to a different service.
Automation System ready
Building automation systems can easily retrieve wireless sensor data and change device set-points via the gateway’s Modbus TCP server. Wireless device data is accessed using Modbus holding registers.
