NESA SRL once again protagonist at the 2017 edition of the World Meteorological Technology Expo, held at the RAI in Amsterdam in October.
In this very important international event, the presence of NESA has been further strengthened, guaranteeing the acquisition of many important contacts at a global level, which have become part of the company’s customers area.
NESA presented a very important novelty that attracted the interest not only of potential customers but also of the most well-known competitors, its new product SFL: it represents the latest technological innovation in terms of acquiring sensor data and sending information directly to the network. It allows in an easy and immediate way to read the temperature, light intensity, humidity, CO2 or other parameters of environmental comfort.
Through SFL it is therefore possible to connect both new and existing sensors, acquire the measurements and calculate the statistical values (eg average and maximum minimum) in certain intervals (eg every 15 ‘), sending these elaborations directly on the network, without any further wireless connections, or telephone sims or additional charges.
SFL uses SigFox’s LPWan technology, thanks to which it is able to interface digital and analogue electrical signals to send them directly to the Internet (868MHz in Europe). It can acquire Pt100, thermopile (μV), voltages max. 0 ÷ 2Vdc, currents 0 ÷ 20mA, 4 ÷ 20mA, digital signals (frequency or states / counts) or signals with ModBus, SDI12 or RS485 protocols. It is programmable by type and signal range, by number of periodic daily mailings or by variable frequency threshold. It has an integrated battery with autonomous up to 5 years.
The ever-increasing need to make available IoT devices with “smart” management, always connected to networks like SigFox, LoRaWAN, IEEE 802.15.4, ZigBee, is a challenge that involves entire sections of the manufacturing industry, and will certainly bring benefits to all supranational organizations, MetOffices and any other institutional user who will be increasingly facilitated with the availability of reliable, up-to-date and remote-collected data that can reduce technical, infrastructure and maintenance costs.
NESA has also obtained further confirmation that the new EVOLUTION datalogger, already available on the market, will mark a new turning point in the world of data acquisition systems based on “open” technologies and without proprietary software as well as royalties. These confirmations fully support the impressions gathered during the 2016 World Meteorological Technology Expo in Madrid, which can be listened to in the video published in the appropriate section of our website https://www.nesasrl.eu/en/video.aspx
