Improving Productivity and Traceability with Wireless Sensing Solutions

Improving Productivity and Traceability with Wireless Sensing Solutions

Regardless of industry or end use, the pressure to increase efficiency, reduce waste, trim energy consumption and maximize equipment utilization is universal. Data acquisition is the most important element in helping organizations collect and process vast volumes of data and become smarter enterprises. Wireless sensing dramatically reduces total installed cost, making it affordable to deliver the data needed to manage and optimize any operation.

Advantech provides scalable, wireless sensor node solutions for data acquisition. These intelligent wireless devices combine data acquisition with leading wireless technologies to monitor physical conditions and environments so that production and quality management can use the gathered data for better decision making and evaluation of the organization’s processes.

Combining wireless communications with data interfaces including RESTful API’s, HTML5 and MQTT, Advantech sensing devices enable users to retrieve data, configure modules and provide real-time equipment monitoring and production information. Following are three applications show how Advantech solutions facilitate and simplify data acquisition and boost productivity in the IoT era.

Wireless I/O Module


WISE-4000 Series

The WISE-4050 is, an IoT wireless I/O module with four-channel digital input and four-channel digital output. It has an integrated Wi-Fi interface with APP mode (data acquisition, data processing to data publishing), and web configuration that can be accessed by a mobile device directly. Data can be logged in the I/O module and then automatically pushed to the cloud. With intelligent processing and publishing features, the time it takes to generate insightful reports can be shortened. Thus users can quickly notice and identify possible issues and system downtime can be minimized or even avoided.

Wireless Sensor Node


WISE-4200/ 4400/ 4600 Series

Advantech’s WISE-4000 wireless sensor node (WSN) series leverages Wireless Ethernet and low-power wide-area network (LPWAN) technology to provide sensor-integrated nodes, IP65-rated nodes, and solar-rechargeable nodes. These WSNs are equipped with data collection, wireless transmission, and power supply features aimed at industrial and outdoor applications. Moreover, to ensure simple and cost-effective vertical IoT applications, Advantech’s WISE-4000 series products offer high connectivity for diverse cloud platforms.
