B&B Electronics (Ottawa, IL) introduced its Wzzard Intelligent Sensing Platform. Wzzard is a complete wireless sensor connectivity platform for the rapid deployment of scalable, intelligent, reliable Internet of Things (IoT) networking in remote and demanding environments. Wzzard was designed to help integrators, VARs, and service providers efficiently develop and deploy secure, smart, self-powered, and scalable IoT applications. Unlike a traditional SCADA application where sensors and edge devices are simply passive conduits for raw data, edge decision making delivers a more effective network. Features include:
- The ability to connect, via conduit fitting cable gland or M12 connector, to any industry-standard sensor.
- General-purpose analog inputs, digital input/output, and thermocouple interfaces.
- Intelligent Edge Nodes that are easily configurable, using Android or IoS smartphones or tablets and the Wzzard app over Bluetooth LE 4.0.
- Control time synchronization, used to maximize battery life, exceeding 5 years for many applications.
