Mote

ThingWave's wireless sensor platform, TW Mote, delivers high performance, robust mesh networking and unlimited sensing capabilities. Our Mote platform can be adopted to meet our customers' requirements in terms of sensing, signal processing, encapsulation, etc.

The battery lifetime is up to ten years on a single battery, and the wireless communication is protected using AES encryption. Our Mote platform supports true Plug&play, where new motes added to a network will start to operate automatially. This reduces installation costs signaificantly. Most devices will operate at least 7.5 years. This depends on sample rate, type of sensor, network topology, etc.

Benefits

The TW Mote platform is easy to integrate and install. Just turn on the power and the mote connects to the mesh network ad the gateway. The wireless communication between a Mote and its gateway is encrypted using AES. The motes perform an automatic registration procedure and start to deliver sensor data immediately.

The Mote platform can be adopted with different sensors and actuators to meet our customers' needs and requirements. Contact ThingWave for more information on how we can help to solve your monitoring problems.
