The FIOT Starter Kit is a ready-made solution for wirelessly collecting, processing and visualising data. It is designed for customers who need to start monitoring their remote devices in a fast, innovative wireless way.
The FIOT Starter Kit is ideal for deployment in the maintenance and production environments (e.g. for condition monitoring and OEE monitoring).
The FIOT Starter Kit contains two wireless sensors and a gateway, which allow you to monitor:
The kit is ideally suited for wireless data collection from control cabinets, moving systems, cranes, conveyor belts, etc.
The FIOT Starter Kit includes:
Signals are transmitted wirelessly through the IQRF technology, which uses the license-free 868 MHz frequency band (in the EU). In many production plants, wireless communication via the 868 MHz frequency is welcome and is often the only possible way to transfer data wirelessly because the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequencies are often used by the logistics or IT departments, or for other purposes.
In industrial environments, we recommend installing the FIOT Sensor at the maximum distance of 100 metres from the FIOT GW. For ideal coverage of a large space, we recommend that you install several FIOT Starter Kits in it. However, please bear in mind that when installing a few FIOT Starter Kits in a single space, signals from individual kits may interfere. If you are considering installing several FIOT Starter Kits in a single space, please contact our Technical Support so that we can reconfigure the gateway settings for you or offer you a different solution.
Collected data can be displayed online in a web browser and through the FIOT Starter Kit app on your smartphone or tablet. It can also be provided to third-party systems via the Modbus TCP protocol, for example to Kepware's KEPServerEX through its Modbus Suite, and then logged to an ODBC database using Kepware's DataLogger application.
The FIOT Starter Kit app supports the Android OS and the iOS and is freely available for download on Google Play and App Store. The app displays all the sensors within the range of the gateway, plus live data from these sensors. The FIOT Starter Kit includes two QR code stickers that are used to identify individual FIOT Sensors by your mobile's or tablet's camera. If you focus your mobile's or tablet's camera on any of these two stickers, the FIOT Starter Kit app on your mobile/tablet will display data from the respective FIOT Sensor. The stickers can be installed in control cabinets or control rooms.
The FIOT gateway web interface provides access to the latest data as well as historical data up to 2 hours back. It also includes user-friendly dashboards. If you would like to display historical data more than 2 hours back or display it in a more user-friendly way, it is possible to log it to a database and use the Grafana visualisation and dashboard system. The Grafana is freely available. Feel free to contact us if you would like to purchase the Commissioning of data visualisation via the Grafana software.
The FIOT is an open, modular platform that can be extended horizontally (by adding extra FIOT Sensors) as well as vertically (by transferring collected data to higher systems).
If you need more FIOT Sensors, you can buy up to 3 extra FIOT Sensors. The FIOT Starter Kit can support even more sensors, but that requires changes to its default settings. In such a case, please contact us.
Have you fallen in love with automated data collection? Let us create a larger, comprehensive project for you, tailored to your needs. The FIOT Starter Kit(s) you have purchased will not go to waste. They will be implemented in the project.
