New explosion proof LoRaWAN wireless condition monitoring sensor

14-06-2022 | Advantech | Test & Measurement

Advantech has released the WISE-2410X explosion-proof LoRaWAN wireless condition monitoring sensor. It provides three-axis vibration inspection and equipment temperature 24 hours a day and meets ISO 10816 standards to facilitate successful predictive maintenance. This LoRaWAN sensor is ATEX and IECEx (Zone 2 and Zone 21) certified for monitoring the vibration level of facilities in explosive environments.

The device provides an integrated ARM Cortex-M4 processor, LoRa transceiver, three-axis accelerometer and temperature sensor. It balances the wireless bandwidth between WISE-2410X and the gateway, mitigating the data transmission fail rates between edge devices and gateways.

It is a LoRaWAN that utilises a star network topology and supplies a gateway data relay function between sensors and the application server. The communication between the sensors and gateway go across the wireless channel, utilising the LoRa physical layer. In contrast, the connection between the gateways and the central server is handled over a backbone IP-based network or Modbus protocol to the application server.

A built-in ARM Cortex-M4 Processor allows its users to implement more internal features. The device can directly calculate more complex values, such as VRMS, ARMS, Peak, Displacement, Kurtosis, Crest factor, Skewness and Standard Deviation values. With its edge computing capability, WISE-2410X can balance the loading between WISE-2410X, gateway, and cloud service.

The device is a plug-and-play solution with LPWAN technology verified by the company and powered by internal 3.6V AA batteries. The battery life can be up to two years with once per hour data update interval time. With its IP65 protection, it is ideal for LPWAN applications, including pumps, HAVC systems, motors, facility monitoring and more. The device connects to the company's WISE Studio Utility for more user-friendly and efficient installation.
