Internet of Things

 

The term IoT refers to all the enabling technologies capable to convert any object into a smart object, by means of a cost-effective internet connection and a low power consumption.

ESC is a family of IoT products dedicated to companies projected to Industry 4.0

Features

wireless CONNECTIVITY

ESC products use different categories of wire- less networks in combination to each other:

LONG Range networks (LoraWan, NB-IoT): used for “long distance” communications (up to 7 Km in dense urban environment) and for transmitting the collected data to the cloud.

 

SHORT Range networks (Bluetooth and WiFi): used for “short distance” networks, allowing communication among various ESC devices (board to board, board to smart device – e.g. cellular phone), up to a range of 60 meters.

HIGH ENDURANCE

The components of ESC products have been designed for a very limited energy consumption, both for sensing and transmission phases. That allows a longer battery life above the average.

SCALABLE SOLUTIONS

IoT devices currently available on the market, are hardly likely to integrated in pre-existing architectures.
The ESC products, as result of a “Made-in-Italy” R&D activity, guarantee usability and quick integration on any pre-existing system.
