Nivus GmbH has released a data logger featuring automatic data transmission via mobile telephone networks.
With the NivuLink Micro, the measuring equipment manufacturer offers a solution for energy-optimised sensor systems, cloud-based provision and transmission of data, and evaluation and protocols.
The NivuLink Micro represents the telecontrol interface between sensors and systems, with data transmission that utilises the widely used MQTT or TCP/IP protocols. If data, for example, is transmitted using TLS, the system complies with current IT security standards and is a reliable component for the Internet of Things (IoT).
The gateway supplies power for data transmission as well as for up to four sensors. Due to smart power management, the battery life is up to 5 years depending on the measurement and transmission cycles set. It is possible to operate the unit by using an external power supply such as a solar panel as well.
Due to IP 68 protection rating the system can be used under rough ambient conditions. The compact metal housing protects the electronic components reliably against mechanical stress.
Regarding data transmission, operators may select between using their own customer SIM or a SIM card by Nivus. If the latter is desired, the manufacturer provides free data transmission as well as free cloud-based provision of data for the first 12 months.
Measurement and transmission cycles can be freely adjusted for each measurement place. For monitoring applications NivuLink Micro features event-based archiving and transmission of data. Nivus also offers automatic creation and archiving of complete protocols as data management function.
