Advantech Launches WISE-4000: The First Series of IoT Wireless I/O Modules
June, 2015 (Taipei,Taiwan) – Advantech’s Industrial Automation Group (IAG) is pleased to announce the launch of their first great value series of 2.4G WISE-4000 IoT Wireless I/O modules which will revolutionize the way that data is gathered from remote or difficult to wire locations.
For the first time Advantech has combined the three core functions of data acquisition, processing and publishing into a single I/O module to meet the needs of a wide range of industries such as environmental monitoring, machine monitoring and smart cities.
The new Advantech WISE-4000 is a wireless Ethernet I/Omodule which can be used without needing to go through a gateway to provide the information. This means that deployment is much easier because a limitless number of I/O modules can be used to gather the information from any third party sensors and connect to an existing network.
With an integrated HTML5 interface to the WISE-4000 can be configured and accessed from any mobile device using a standard web browser and without needing to go through an Access Point. Since the WISE-4000 uses the popular RESTful API, system integrators can adjust the configurator to meet their specific needs and reduce the amount of effort required to acquire big data.
The WISE-4000’s Data Logger can send time stamped information to a Dropbox account or a private cloud depending on the configuration and it can also buffer the devices’ data, so that in the event of network failure, no data is lost before it is sent to the administrator.
Other features of the WISE-4000 include: three levels of security (WPA2, SSL and three levels of user login); interchangeable antenna for greater flexibility and external DIP switches so the default factory settings can be reapplied quickly and easily.
There are four models in the WISE-4000 series available now:
- WISE-4050 is a 4-ch digital input, 4-ch digital output IoT Wireless I/O Module
- WISE-4060 is a 4-ch digital input, 4-ch relay output IoT Wireless I/O Module
- WISE-4012E is a 6-ch Input/ Output IoT Wireless I/O Module for developers with WebAccess (optional)
- WISE-4012 is a 4-ch universal input, 2-ch digital output IoT Wireless I/O Module
