A lot of industrial processes can benefit from wireless data communication. It provides more flexibility while reducing installation and maintenance costs. Potential applications include smart factories, power plants including renevable energy sources, power grid, warehouses, thermal power stations etc.
In many cases radio transmission enables new applications in industrial processes, in ex. when sensors need to placed on moving/rotating parts or in hard to reach places. This combined with the possibility to power the devices from batteries allows to build new and innovative solutions to problems, that previously couldn’t be addressed.
Existing industrial radio solutions are often expensive and limited in functionality. Typical radiomodems do not natively support mesh networking and multipoint communication is reduced to relying messages to preconfigured nodes. Often, the communication is not secured enough. Our solutions also fit well as a serial communication medium, carrying in ex. Modbus RTU protocol, but the connections are self-organized and self-healed in case of failure, and the network is natively secure. Also, in many cases it is desired to integrate wireless data transmission directly into the product, to cut on data converter costs and reducing installation complexity. Our radio modules are fit for that purpose, allowing to embed wireless networking into virtually any product.
