Industrial IoT Products


Motes and Sensors

ThingWave offers nowadays two different mote products depending on the requirements of the application:

  • 6LoWPAN Mesh Network
  • 5G NB-IoT

Both solutions deliver high performance, security, robust networking, and unlimited sensing capabilities. They can be adapted to meet our customers’ requirements in terms of sensing, signal processing, encapsulation, etc.

The battery life time depends on the specific application, reaching up to 10 years for real-time monitoring applications.

The Installation and integration is simple, just turn on the power and the motes will connect to the network immediately. The motes perform an automatic registration procedure and start to deliver sensor data to the TW-Cloud.

TW-Mote with 6LoWPAN

The TW-Mote with 6LoWPAN communication is the perfect mote for environments where a mesh network makes the difference, it increases the robustness as more TW-Motes are added to the network. It requires the use of TW-Gateways to enable connectivity to the TW-Cloud.

Characteristics

NameValue
System lifetime Up to 10 years, without interruptions on the communication
Security State of the art encryption
Network size Currently up to 100 motes per gateway
Network topology Mesh or chain networks (up to 30 hops)
Configuration Can be set at run time
Mote firmware Can be updated at run time, wirelessly

TW-Mote with 5G NB-IoT

The TW-Mote with 5G NB-IoT communication is the best solution for applications without the use of Gateways, due to the fact that this communication enables direct secure communication between the TW-Motes and the TW-Cloud.

Characteristics

NameValue
System lifetime Up to 10 years, with interrupted communication
Security State of the art encryption
Network size Unlimited
Network topology Individual Internet connection
Configuration Can be set at run time
Mote firmware Can be updated at run time remotely

Gateways

Galaxy is Thingwave’s gateway software. Our gateway comes with WiFi, Ethernet or WiFi and Ethernet connectivity. The gateway manages all Motes and can visualize sensor data, configure the motes and forward data to our cloud system, Universe.

Benefits

Galaxy gives full control over a local sensor- and actuator network. Galaxy manages security (users, encryption keys, …), data storage, alarm generation, data visualization, and many other features.

Characteristics

NameValue
Connectivity WiFi only, Ethernet only, WiFi plus Ethernet
Encapsulation Can be changed upon request
Storage Can store more than one year of data from all Motes
Alarms Can generate alarms by email, SMS, and HTTP
Security Supports encrypted communication, firewalls, intrusion detecton, and several VPN solutions

Cloud

Universe is ThingWave’s Cloud solution. Universe can manage multiple gateways and an unlimited number of sensors. Incoming sensor data can be processed and analyzed in order to generate statistics, alarms and decision support.

Benefits

Universe gives control over all motes and gateways in one place. Data can be analyzed and alarms can be generated automatically. Universe can also forward data to Big Data systems and export data into a number of different formats.

Characteristics

NameValue
Data storageVirtually unlimited
Security Supports VPN solutions. All communication is encrypted with HTTPS
Number of motes Unlimited
Alarms Can generate alarms by email, SMS and HTTP
