ENMAT working on new Wireless Integrated Energy Data Logger
The ENMAT team are working on a new Data Logger that will support built in wireless technology.
The new logger will support standard Ethernet, just like the existing ENMAT Data Logger range, however this new unit will also support built in 3G/GRPS connectivity as standard, eliminating the need for additional bolt-on adapters to support 3G functionality.
The new wireless data logger unit will support a ZigBee Pro adoption of this protocol using Modbus.
ZigBee is a specification for a suite of high level communication protocols used to create personal area networks built from small, low-power digital radios. ZigBee is based on an IEEE 802.15 standard. Though low-powered, ZigBee devices often transmit data over longer distances by passing data through intermediate devices to reach more distant ones, creating a mesh network; i.e., a network with no centralized control or high-power transmitter/receiver able to reach all of the networked devices. The decentralized nature of such wireless ad hoc networks make them suitable for applications where a central node can’t be relied upon.
