Daytech have developed a range of intelligent, modular Wireless Sensor Network hardware and software technology, that offers robust, precise and economical monitoring and automatic control remotely. These innovative and intelligent Industrial WSN solutions, including modular plug-in Zigbee, WiFi and LoRa 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. We have expandable and customisable IO options, with the ability to integrate into existing PLC/RTU or replace these old systems with the ACORN's state of art IoT platform, where you can eliminate cabling, 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.

Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) - ACORN IoT SmartNode!

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.
