SenzIoT design platform renders a complete solution for connecting nearly any device around you which provides real-time digital data such as sensors, heat systems, and responds to commands from the hub.SenzIoT design platform is a gateway to the Internet and connecting portable nodes or wireless sensor networks. Here comes the design flexibility depending on engineer’s choice for selecting both wired or wireless bus interface to an external device which is being connected for accessing data or being controlled.SenzIoT is implemented with more than one connectivity options to its portable nodes. SenzIoT provides support for some recommended leading software stacks and open source or licensed IDEs. This will reduce the development time for managing, analyzing & building the entire prototype design of Internet of Things (IoT) and thereby reduced time to market also. Design engineers can also develop their own firmware to the easy deployment of their end-user application by easy customization. Obviously, SenzIoT creates a rapid prototyping environment by the way of quicker connectivity options between nodes and gateway platform.
Features of SenzIoT
The SenzIoT platform is based on a 32-bit microprocessor and features wireless connectivities, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GSM/ GPRS & low power WAN (LoRa).
Additional functionality extension feature
The SenzIoT platform features additional functionality extension using an external bus interface in addition to the normally available wireless interface for nodes. This external bus interface supports Addon sensor boards and thereby making SenzIoT more customizable and extendable among similar platforms.
Supported software stacks & IDEs
The SenzIoT platform supports both official IDEs as well as Arduino IDE for firmware development. Libraries and example codes available with Arduino IDE are more useful for kickstart design from beginner level.
Portable IoT Gateway & Nodes
The SenzIoT platform utilizes power from Li-ion/LiPo battery to enable the Gateway & nodes portable. So that, it can be used in remote applications, where the power source is not available.
Support Long range nodes
The SenzIoT platform supports low power 10KM line of sight communications range for nodes, which is important in remotely placed applications without connecting to the internet directly and without making transmission costly.
Technical Specification of SenzIoT
SenzIoT design platform consists of two basic types of hardware functional blocks and a cloud storage.One is IoT Gateway and the other is n number of nodes
IoT gateway is a hub for connecting to the Internet and establishing a wireless link between nodes & cloud storage for fetching a large size of real-time data, analysis, authentication and its real-time processing. IoT gateway brings various connectivity options to nodes and implements more than one wireless interfaces in a single board.
- Wi-Fi : 802.11 b/g/n/e/i (802.11n @ 2.4 GHz up to 150 Mbit/s)
- Bluetooth : v4.2 BR/EDR and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE)
- GSM, GPS & GPRS : Support for GSM/GPRS four bands including 800, 900, 1800, 1900MHz
- LPWAN (LoRa) : 433MHz, upto 10KM range
Battery & solar charging
The power section of SenzIoT platform uses two modes for consuming power. One is DC power from an external source and other is Onboard rechargeable battery source.
* DC adapter/DC jack
* Li-ion/LiPo battery
* External connector for solar charge controller
DC Power adapter jack is available in Gateway boards and nodes. Alternatively, Li-ion based battery also powers the Gateway board and nodes. A solar charge controller regulates and controls the charging current during Battery charging from an external power source.
- Power: 5V,2A and 3.3V,2A
- 2 cell LiIon/LiPo battery
IDEs, programming methods & Cloud connectivity
Supported Cloud services
- Other Web IDEs – PlatformIO, Zerynth Studio, TUNIOT
- Amazon AWS IoT
- Google Cloud Platform
- Microsoft Azure
- MyDevices.com Cayenne
- IBM Watson IoT
- MQTT, Mosquitto
IoT nodes of the SenzIoT platform will work alone and transmit the data to the gateway. Multiple types of nodes will be available based on the type of wireless technology it uses to communicate with the gateway.The power supply will be derived from the battery and have different types of bus interface for connecting different sensors/actuators.
The following most common communication interface options are made available in nodes of SenzIoT platform to make it easily customizable.
