Remote Monitoring and Control with the IoT-SmartNode - For Renewable Energy, Battery & Off-Grid Systems.
Remote battery powered equipment and wireless control together means you can reduce overall project capital costs by up to 70% and vastly reduce cabling/trenching costs on new installations by up to 95%.
This all-in-one solution lowers your total operational costs on equipment by up to 75%, minimises or eliminates power bills on new or retrofit applications, reduce site operator and maintenance labour, whilst gaining remote control and data collection capability with completely secure, remote IoT monitoring and automation ability from anywhere in the world.
70% Total Project Capex Saving With the Wireless IoT-SmartNode
Daytech's all Australian Made range of intelligent, modular Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) hardware and software technology, offers robust, precise and economical monitoring and automated remote control. These innovative and intelligent Industrial wireless mesh network solutions, including modular plug-in Zigbee Mesh, WiFi and 3G/4G LTE protocols, are suitable for a wide range of process and environmental applications.
You can build your own advanced Wireless Mesh or Star Networks with the "ACORN IoT-SmartNode" and gateway via WiFi, 3G/4G or Ethernet using the same modular device. With expandable and customisable IO options, you have the ability to integrate into existing PLC/RTU systems, or replace these tired old systems with the SmartNode's state of art IoT platform. You can eliminate cabling and build your own web based applications for remote browser GUIs or smartphone/tablet control, integrate with multiple cloud platforms and even perform AI Machine Learning on board.
Daytech's software platform, comes free with the purchase of our IoT Gateways. This package includes Mosquito MQTT broker, Node-Red and an Open PLC programming tool, together with easy to use setup and commissioning tools. This means you can develop your own applications easily with drag and drop tools.
Industrial IoT - ACORN SmartNode - "Modular Building Blocks for Easy IoT"
Daytech have developed a range of modular hardware and software technology products that offer robust, precise, sophisticated monitoring and automatic control. These innovative Industrial IoT solutions are suitable for a wide range of process and environmental applications. Depending upon your needs, we can deliver standardised, configurable hardware/software, that you can install, configure and maintain in house, or a custom engineered solution, with your companies branding on the apps, dashboards and GUIs, involving rapid prototyping through to high volume manufacture.
"THE MUSCLE" - HARDENED REAL TIME OPERATING SYSTEM (RTOS) MCU
The ACORN IoT SmartNode range of wireless sensor network, edge computing and gateway nodes, forms a highly inter-operable and modular platform, powered by an advanced ARM Cortex M4 IoT-Core MCU, with hardened RTOS for industrial control, with plugin modules for LoRa, LoRaWAN, Zigbee 2.4GHz, Zigbee 900MHz, 3G/4G, WiFi, Bluetooth and soon onto the market - NBIoT. The ACORN comes with 6 industrial IO onboard (2 x DI, 2 x DO, AI with 0-5V / 0-10V / 4-20mA, high speed pulse input) and has expansion modules, covering almost any type of IO, allowing up to 36 IO in one unit and 1000s of distributed wireless IO nodes, meaning you can replace an RTU or DCS/PLC systems with state of the art IoT hardware.
"THE BRAIN" - POWERFUL & INTEGRATED SINGLE BOARD COMPUTER / GATEWAY
The ACORN IoT SmartNode has a plug-in slot for a single board computer, that fits within the weatherproof housing, allowing you to program sophisticated control applications, gateway to cloud and remote servers, run sophisticated AI/ML and Neural Network algorithms for control or edge processing and many more features. You can run DAYTECH's drag and drop "flow programming" tool for GUI, dashboard and automation app development! This also allows you to access, program, configure and control your applications locally via WiFi/Bluetooth with the GUI from your PC/Smartphone/Tablet, or remotely via WiFi, or 3G/4G (plug-in required) with VPN or cloud integrated solutions.
"THE COMMUNICATION SKILLS" - RS232/485, CAN BUS, MODBUS, UART, I2C, SPI
The ACORN IoT SmartNode can not only walk the walk, it can talk the talk! For fully inter-operable IIoT solutions, you need the flexibility to communicate with a myriad of devices and other platforms. We've packed the ACORN full of communications ability, not only wireless protocols such as WiFi/Bluetooth/Zigbee/LoRa, Cellular 3G/4G but also comes standard with RS232/485, CAN Bus, UART, I2C and SPI. We can factory configure GPS, SDI-12, MODBUS-RTU, MODBUS-TCP or a plethora of other protocols, set us a challenge!
"THE POWER" - MAINS 230VAC, 12VDC, 24VDC, EXPANDABLE BATTERIES, SOLAR
The ACORN IoT SmartNode can be powered from 230VAC with a plugpack, or directly to DC with a wide range 12-28VDC input range. It has an onboard solar battery charging IC for sophisticated and safe solar power charging or up to 2 x Lithium Ion 3Ah battery packs per node, for seriously long life remote operation. The node features 12VDC outputs and 24VDC optional output to power, control and monitor sensors and actuators, wireless and from battery/solar power. Intelligent sleep modes allow you to expand battery life and shut down individual modular units of the node and externally powered sensors/actuators as required.
