Tata Elxsi Wireless Sensor module
The wireless integrated sensor module is capable of measuring temperature of up to 1300oC, light luminance and humidity. It has a small form factor, operated by a single coin cell battery that lasts for up to 2 years.
Capabilities Benefits Application areas Readily available sensors for temperature, humidity, light intensity, humidity and vibration The communication module covers a distance of 15 meters
radius with an on-board antenna
Manufacturing environments Temperature measurement for -30°C to 100°C & -200°C to 1200°C ranges The coverage distance can be easily extended for 500-1000 meters with antenna Labs and pharmaceutical industry Can be easily customized for other parameters like pressure, flow, weight, gas etc. Configurable upper and lower sensing limits for each parameter Smart homes and buildings
Tata Elxsi’s Wifi Smart Plug
Tata Elxsi’s Wifi smart plug controller can be plugged into any electrical socket. It allows smart control and monitoring of power consumption of the appliances plugged in. Apart from being a stand-alone smart switch, the product offers consumer appliance makers the option to integrate this into their product to make it “connected and smart”.
Capabilities Benefits Application areas Wide input voltage operating range 85VAC - 230VAC Remote on/off via smartphone or web app Home automation Switches load up to 10 Amps In-built timer function for switching on/off at pre-scheduled time Smart building Connects to any Smartphone, PC, and Laptop among others Monitor power consumption and enable further analytics and usage advisory services for users In-built timer functions for switching on/off load at predetermined intervals Measure power consumption
Tata Elxsi’s Gateway Module
Tata Elxsi’s Gateway solution for IoT comes pre-integrated with different communications technologies for data transfer, monitoring and control.
The smart gateway collects sensor data at the network edge and then acts as a filter to locally analyze and normalize the collected data before sharing it through the network and into the cloud.
Capabilities Benefits Application areas Operates on utility power supply Aggregator: Accumulates data from all the registered nodes Home automation solution Automatic device registration Notification: Sends SMS notification if any of the sensor node data is out of its operating range Smart building power consumption Uses RF (2.4GHz) communication to interface with sensor nodes Security: The packets between gateway and senor node are encrypted (Using blow fish algorithm) Industrial automation
