2.4 GHz modem for mesh sensor networks
14 October 2008
SSV offers the Mod/Zbee1 socket modem which uses the 2.4 GHz ISM wireless frequencies based on the IEEE 802.15.4 and ZigBee standards. The Mod/Zbee1 is controlled via a serial interface using AT commands and can be used either as a ZigBee coordinator, router or end point. The module is also available with an integrated chip antenna.
2.4 GHz socket modem supports mesh sensor networks
Also available with a plug for connection to external antennas, the socket format of the Mod/Zbee1 corresponds to the defacto-standard for making OEM devices capable of communication using modules that can be integrated at a later date. Since modules in the socket format are physically compatible, an OEM design can be created-regardlessof the communication connection.
Modular ZigBee to Ethernet gateways can be constructed. The data of individual ZigBee sensors can be coupled into an IP-based Ethernet LAN directly via a VPN tunnel and, for example, written directly to an SQL database.
It is also possible to forward data to the Internet. A starter kit (DNP/9200-RAK1) and an optional on-site installation service are available for evaluation of the Mod/Zbee1 functions.
