Product Information
The PreonGate GPRS Gateway provides the connection between any PreonCubes and the Virtenio online portal. It uses a mobile phone connection and transmits the data from the numerous measuring points, such as those of PreonCube Logistics Advanced, to the online portal PreonLive. The PreonCubes also transmit their data wirelessly via IEEE 802.15.4, so that all communication from the sensor to the cloud is wireless. IEEE 802.15.4 serves Virtenio's cubes and gateways as a universal frame format for simple point-to-point protocols up to 6LoWPAN with duty cycling. For operation, the gateway uses a high-performance lithium polymer accumulator (LiPo) with which it is also possible to operate for several years independent of the mains power supply. The battery can also be recharged during operation via a USB-A socket (IP67). The fully protected enclosure (IP66) permits operation under harsh environmental conditions. Data is then transferred to the PreonLive online portal and can be analyzed and exported in the web browser. This means that they are able to monitor remote measurement cubes from any PC, smartphone or tablet with Internet access and have an overview of local environmental conditions at any time.
The PreonGate GPRS Gateway connects the local Virtenio wireless network directly to the IP-based Internet. This means that there are no other requirements for the communication infrastructure on site apart from a mobile phone connection. Additional hardware and software as well as power supply can be dispensed with. For future applications in the "Internet of Things and Services" (IOT) area, the PreonGate GPRS Gateway is prepared and can be updated via software update to support 6LoWPAN via IEEE 802.15.4. In addition, the gateway supports IPv4 and is ready for IPv6.
