Fujitsu Releases Wirepas Mesh IoT Front-end Devices for Secure, Scalable and Flexible IoT Applications

Sunnyvale, CA -- April 23, 2020 -- Fujitsu Component America, Inc. has released a series of battery-powered Wirepas Mesh technology mesh units and mesh-sensor units. The devices simplify construction of large-scale decentralized networks to allow scalable, reliable and cost-effective IoT solutions for position tracking and sensor data collection.

In addition to deploying large-scale networks, the mesh units (FWM8BLZ07P) and mesh-sensor units (FWM8BLZ07Y) enable power saving, high-density networks with interference tolerance channel selection, transmitting power control and autonomous network rerouting capability. If the network environment changes, adds and/or removes the end device, or if a device failure occurs, the mesh topology and protocols will automatically reconfigure the mesh network. Furthermore, a security key ensures a secure communication environment throughout the network.

The FWM8BLZ07P mesh unit is well-suited for wide-area asset tracking. It features a long-sleep mode and an integrated sensor that wakes up only if certain events, like shock, are detected. This function further conserves energy because communication begins only when needed.

The multi-function FWM8BLZ07Y mesh-sensor unit incorporates a unique combination of temperature, humidity, air pressure, illuminance, 3-axis acceleration, and sound-level sensors. This makes it adaptable for a variety of massive, sensor data collection systems with scalable mesh topology. Since the sensor data paths through the mesh network topology, the end-node’s placement is not limited by the gateway's location.

Both mesh units are based on the Nordic Semiconductor nRF52832 SoC and measure a compact, 40.0 x 31.0 x 12.0 mm within a gray, plain housing, adaptable for many applications. They use a single CR2450 coin-cell battery and include a voltage notification function, which senses a voltage drop in the battery and allows users to determine the right timing for replacement.

The mesh and mesh sensor units and position tracking support software are available immediately. For more information and pricing, please contact your local sales support.
