New Waterproof Outdoor Power USB Cable for Plug & Sense!

New Waterproof Outdoor Power USB Cable for Plug & Sense!

June 14th, 2016 - Libelium

Libelium has designed a new Outdoor Power USB Cable which enables to connect a Waspmote Plug & Sense! Sensor Platform directly to electrical installations using a regular USB power adapter (110V / 220V). It can also be connected to a computer, a laptop or any similar device with USB ports.

One of the main advantages is that the Outdoor Power USB Cable is waterproof so, now Waspmote Plug & Sense! can receive continuous power electricity outdoors coming from the inside of the building. Until now, the only way of getting continuous power was using the solar panel that obviously had a lack of energy at night, now we can have Plug & Sense! powered 24/7 non-stop.

The speed of charge is another valuable feature because this cable enables a three times faster battery recharge (280mA) than through a normal USB socket (100mA).

The Outdoor Power USB Cable has to be connected to the Solar Socket that is placed on one side of the Waspmote Plug & Sense! Sensor Platform. Obviously, due to its connection socket, only one of the two devices can be used: the solar panel or the USB cable.

This cable is specifically designed for Waspmote Plug & Sense! with rechargeable battery. Besides, the Outdoor Power USB Cable can not be used to reprogram nodes form a computer, to visualize data, etc.

This cable is suitable for nodes installed in facades which receive power supply from power outlet inside the building. Due to its powerful charge capacity, it is also appropriate for power-hungry nodes with high duty-cycles or nodes equipped with many sensor probes that need to be read at every cycle.
