Drones, Sensors and Blockchain for water quality control in the Volga river to promote trustworthy data and transparency
Plug & Sense! Is the encapsulated version of Waspmote. This line allows the easy deployment of Internet of Things networks in a scalable way, ensuring minimum maintenance costs.
The platform consists of a robust waterproof enclosure with specific external sockets to connect the sensors, the solar panel, the antenna and even the USB cable in order to reprogram the node. It has been specially designed to be scalable, easy to deploy and maintain.
Smart Environment PRO enables the Air Quality Index (AQI) calculation, thanks to electro-chemical gas sensors providing extremely accurate ppm values and a high-end Particle Matter sensor.
Smart Agriculture PRO is designed to perform vineyards monitoring for enhancing wine quality, selective irrigation on golf courses and conditions control in greenhouses, among others.
Smart Agriculture Xtreme is an evolution of our Agriculture line with a new selection of high-end professional sensors. It allows to monitor multiple environmental parameters involving a wide range of applications, from plant growing analysis to weather observation. There are sensors for atmospheric and soil monitoring and plants health. More than 20 sensors can be connected.
Smart Water allows to monitor water quality in rivers, lakes and the sea.
Smart Water Ions specializes in measuring ions concentration enabling water quality control in rivers, lakes and the sea.
Smart Water Xtreme includes top market performance sensors from the most prestigious manufacturers for applications such as potable water monitoring, fish farms management, chemical leakage detection, remote measurement of swimming pools and spas, and seawater pollution.
The main applications for this Waspmote Plug & Sense! model are noise maps (monitor in real time the acoustic levels in the streets of a city [LeqA in dBA]), air quality, waste management, smart lighting, etc.
Smart Parking allows to detect available parking spots by placing the node on the pavement. It works with a radar and a magnetic sensors which detect when a vehicle is present or not.
The main applications for this Waspmote Plug & Sense! configuration are perimeter access control, liquid presence detection and doors and windows openings. Besides, a relay system allows this model to interact with external electrical machines.
Plug & Sense! Industry 4.0, can operate in three types of situations. It can be used to connect any sensor to an existing industrial bus; it can also add wireless connectivity to wired buses or even connect industrial devices to the cloud. In any case, the aim is offering extremely flexibility and interoperability to any industry that need to send data from the productive process to the Internet with any wireless connectivity.
The applications for this Plug & Sense! model are focused on adding wireless connectivity to 4-20 mA devices and connecting them to the Cloud.
The user can choose among a wide variety of standard sensors
Ambient Control allows to you to create basic environment parameters monitoring using the temperature, humidity, atmospheric pressure and luminosity sensors. As well as this, movement and vibrations can be measured by the internal accelerometer.
Change sensor probes in just seconds
Sensor probes can be attached easily by just screwing them into the bottom sockets. This allows you to add new sensing capabilities to existing networks in just minutes. Sensor probes can be easily replaced to ensure the lowest maintenance cost of the sensor network. Discover more than 120 Sensors available!
Outdoors materials provided
Waspmote Plug & Sense! counts with holders specially designed for outdoor installations in street-lights and building fronts.
Metal cable ties are provided to easily adjust the node to street light posts.
Installation can be done in minutes as you only need to tie the cables on the enclosure holders and then to the post. Once the node is secured just press the on button and the node will start automatically to send the data gathered from the sensors to the Gateway.
External Solar Panel
The battery can be recharged using the external solar panel option (common USB-recharging is of course another option).
The external solar panel is mounted on a 45º holder which ensures the maximum performance of each outdoor installation.
The rechargeable battery has a capacity of 6600 mA·h, which ensures non-stop operation during the weeks when sunlight is low.
High sensitivity and transmission power
There are multiple radio options in order to communicate the sensor nodes with the Gateway. 802.15.4, ZigBee 3, 868 and 900 are commonly used to create local, start topologies. WiFi can be used to connect with any WiFi Access Point, while the 4G radio can be used to send the sensor data directly to the Cloud without using an intermediate Gateway. Sigfox and LoRaWAN modules are designed for IoT applications and get very long range links.
Complete list of available radios:
Tracking + sensing applications
A dedicated GPS module is available as an accessory, allowing real-time tracking applications.
The idea is simple: read the GPS coordinates (longitude and latitude) and send them by HTTP request to a web server along with extra information from the sensors included in the node. Then use a browser to load the PHP webpage which uses Google Maps to show the location in real-time.
Connect your industrial devices to Plug & Sense!
Plug & Sense! units can connect with most common industrial communication protocols: RS-485, Modbus, 4-20 mA (current loop) and CAN Bus. This feature opens a wide variety of applications for industrial sensing and automation, military, automobile, vehicle tracking or remote factory management.
There are 3 main uses:
Choose your own Mobile Network Operator
Plug & Sense! models with 4G radio have an External SIM socket which allows developers to easily add and change a carrier SIM card in order to connect the devices to any 4G / 3G / GPRS / GSM cellular network.
Ready for any market
Plug & Sense! is the first IoT sensor platform to be fully certified:
Sending data to the cloud
The data gathered by the Waspmote Plug & Sense! nodes can be sent to the Cloud by Meshlium, the IoT Gateway router is specially designed to connect Waspmote sensor networks to the Internet via Ethernet and 4G interfaces.
