ACORN IoT-SmartNode - Modular & Expandable Gateway Node

Wireless Communication Module
Mains Power Adaptor
Replaceable Battery Power

    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 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 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 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.
