iQunet sensor types - wireless battery operated

Sensor network components

‚Äč
Base station (required)
The base station is the center node of the wireless network.   It can serve virtually an unlimited number of sensor nodes and is powered via a standard micro USB connection from the iQunet small format DIN-rail Unix Server. The base station can easily be attached to the wall with the related clips.

Unix Server OPC server
Unix server (required)
The iQunet Unix Server is a small size Single Board Computer to which the base station is connected.  It has a standard Ethernet connection and is Wi-Fi enabled.  It is powered via a standardized USB charger (included). The Unix Server provides via internet access to the web based Wireless Sensor Device Manager software which monitors the sensor network and drives the dynamic sensor parameterization. The Unix Server has an embedded OPC UA Server inside guaranteeing seamless data exchange with SCADA systems or OPC historians where the data can be stored.



repeater extender wireless network
Repeater (optional)
When longer distances need to be bridged, the optional wireless repeater (extender) can be used.  The repeater has a small footprint and can easily be attached to the wall with the related clips. The repeater can connect virtually to an unlimited number of sensors and is powered via a standard micro USB connection to a USB charger (included). The repeater has also 2 standard coin cells on board acting as an UPS (Uninterruptable Power Supply).

Actuator (optional)
The actuator has a small footprint and can easily be attached to the wall with the related clips. The actuator can connect virtually to an unlimited number of sensors and is powered via a standard micro USB connection to a USB charger (included). The actuator run although also on 2 standard coin cells acting as an UPS (Uninterruptable Power Supply). The output from the actuator is either a 5V signal or a 24V switching output. This way the actuator can drive a PLC for direct machine communication.  The intelligent actuator can work standalone if for any reason the internet connection is temporary unavailable.


A virtual unlimited number of sensor devices can be connected to the base station or to the optional repeater/extender for even more reach.
