Next Generation of EpiSensor Wireless Energy Monitoring System Features Smart Gateway and Data Logging at the Sensor Level
Press release date: December 11, 2012
The new EpiSensor smart gateway collects and logs data for access through a built-in web server, and can deliver the sensor data to a variety of enterprise software systems for archiving and analysis. The gateway doubles as the network management tool, providing an intuitive web interface to quickly and easily deploy the wireless monitoring system. Since no specialist training is required to install and commission the EpiSensor system, it is quick to deploy and simple to support.
The new generation of sensors feature logging and time-stamped data locally at the sensor to serve as a redundant back up in case of any network communication issues—a distinct feature provided by the EpiSensor system. The new sensors, which monitor electricity, water, gas, heat, temperature and humidity, and fuel levels, also support remote software upgrades, which are handled easily through the gateway’s network management tool.
“Our new system is designed to be equally advantageous as either a new installation or a retrofit installation to interface to existing enterprise software,” says Gary Carroll, CEO of Ireland-based EpiSensor. “Because it’s fully modular and wireless, this scalable system can be installed with minimum disruption to normal operations.”
The new EpiSensor wireless energy monitoring system uses advanced wireless self-healing mesh networking technology to collect data from wireless nodes. The system is built on open industry standards, and the sensor networks use ZigBee® wireless technology (IEEE 802.15.4) which operates in the ISM band. The smart gateway connects to the internet via Ethernet, Wi-Fi and GSM/GPRS using standard communications protocols.
With a highly rugged design targeted to the harshest of industrial environments, the EpiSensor wireless monitoring system is equally suited for installation in clean rooms as it is in the harsh environments of food processing halls. Waterproof enclosures are standard across the product line, and most products are housed in high quality chemical resistant polycarbonate enclosures.
