Fujitsu Components America has launched a low-cost IoT connectivity solutions mesh evaluation kit that the company states simplifies feasibility testing of all usage cases for wireless IoT solutions driven by fully scalable and robust Wirepas mesh technology and its own hardware.
Each mesh evaluation kit is provided with all the necessary components and tools to create a mesh network of sensors, including five FWM8BLZ07Y sensor nodes with the following onboard temperature, accelerometer, humidity, barometric pressure, luminance and sound level sensors. There are five FWM8BLZ07P mesh nodes set as asset tags and 20 FWM8BLZ07P mesh nodes set as Wirepas anchor nodes for location awareness. One FWM8GWZ01 wi-fi gateway with two Wirepas sink nodes joins the mesh network to the cloud service, and one concise manual describes the usage and installation of the hardware and software package.
The kit is supplied with a three-month software evaluation licence that provides customers access to the full-production grade Wirepas network tool, the Wirepas positioning engine and the sensor data webpage, which are all connected to a cloud instance.
The kit includes all the required settings and cloud setup to assure quick and easy installation.
